A rescue cat surprised his new owners in Indianapolis recently when he showed them his previously unknown love for the game of fetch.
Holden Bouwers recorded this video on October 6 and posted it to Reddit with the caption, “My wife wanted a cat. I wanted a dog. So now we have a cat that plays fetch.”
He told Storyful his cat, Oak, just started fetching one day.
“I think he started doing it about a month ago,” Bouwers said. “We now play fetch most days.”
He told Storyful the length of the game varies from a few throws to over 40. He said Oak has a “super affectionate” brother named Willow who will go after the toy but not bring it back.
Bouwers told Storyful he found Oak and Willow in a ditch in June, when they were kittens. Credit: Holden Bouwers via Storyful
