Is your pet obsessed with a certain toy or object that they want constantly?

    Is your pet obsessed with a certain toy or object that they want constantly?

    This is Buster a friends dog who is obsessed, and I do mean obsessed with a pointer light which is located in the drawer that he is staring at.  I am not exaggerating when I tell you that he will sit there for a half an hour at a time, beg, whine, anything for someone to get out that pointer and move the light around on the floor so he can chase it.  They (he and T-Bo their other dog) go outside and play for hours and have other toys, but he is obsessed with the pointer.  Do any of your pets have a toy or obsession like this?

    Haha, that picture is too funny with what you just said about him sitting there watching and waiting.  Cute.   My cat isn't nearly obsessed like he is, but his favorite toy is this one little ball that makes noise when you roll it.  He has several other toys, even ones that make noise too, but I always find him playing with the ball and hardly ever anything else.

    Cute picture/story!

    My dog has A LOT of toys.  I wouldn't really say he's obsessive over any certain one, but he definitely has some that he likes more than others.

    My dog has a little soft toy -a reindeer- that she got a couple of Christmases ao.  She has ripped all the stuffing out of it and the thing looks grotesque.  I tried to throw it out but she found a way to retrieve it from the trash.  She loves it so much I haven't the heart to try to throw it away again.  She likes to throw it in the air and chase after it and then she sits down and gives it a good lick before settling down to sleep with it.  I have tried substituting other toys and buying new ones, but she loses interest quickly and goes back to the reindeer.

    That is such a great photo of Buster and his Pointer obsession!

    My dog is a self confessed ball-a-holic. He will carry his ball around the house. Push it into people's hands until they play with him and he's even sneaked it out of the house when we go out for walkies around the block (I noticed he was carrying it ten minutes into the walk).

    If the ball is out of reach, he will sit and stare just like Buster does with the pointer, and occasionally glance at one of his humans as if to say 'hey, the ball is there, can you not see it? How about a good game of fetch?'

    He has even been seen falling asleep with the ball in his mouth :-)

    my pet cat is only obsess with cat biscuits. She will come in to get a bite every 30min and from different people in our family. For example, if i fed her a while ago, she  expects my hubby to feed her next, then my daughter and so on. She doesn't it the cat biscuits from the same person on the same day. Crazy, isn't it?

      That is crazy but really funny at the same time.  I guess she figures you won't remember who fed her last so she can get more and more.  Pretty smart if you think about it smile)
