    Question Can cats play tug?

    Can cats play tug? Well if they can it would be "gentle tug".




    Here is a link to a "cat tug toy".

    I never heard of cats playing tug. That seems to just be a dog game as far as I can tell.

    Oh man, does she growl when she plays? My kitties love to play tug and fetch. When I bring home a new cat toy (it has to be a very specific type of toy for each of the two cats, mind you), they steal it from me with a growl and a hiss, and guard it for about ten minutes, growling constantly. Then they bring it to me so we can play tug, and they continue to growl and hiss the whole time. I think it's kind of adorable.

    If Daisy ever growls, the noise is outside of my hearing range. She never turns her ears back while playing, so I highly doubt it.

    The tug toy seems nice. I hope it would probably save my furniture from being chewed.

    Thanks guys! It does seem a little strange but I guess they can do it.

    How would playing tug keep a cat's claws off your furniture? The solutions to that are a scratching post or pad, depending on what your cat prefers, and a cat tree.

    Yetidog37 Just like with a dog I would not pull to hard. One of my cats lost a tooth when I was holding her toy and she was pulling on it. It was one of her tinny teeth in the front so she is fine! But I have seen plenty of dog teeth come out from the game (the dog was very old and had teeth issues being treated by the vet).

    Those teeth are called incisors. Iti's a good thing cats and dogs are not rodents!
