We have one of those cat fishing poles that actually allows you to cast and the fishing line runs out. Ham has managed to grab it and then stands back and holds onto the catnip and feather fish we have on the end. Quite honestly when he uses all his weight to try and keep the toy, that cat is strong.
He doesn’t get to play with the kitty fishing pole very often, probably because there is a tendency for him to grab and hold. I shouldn’t be surprised. Ichiro has always grabbed and sat on it.
