“I love finding a toy an older cat actually likes,” posted a Reddit user. They received a reply from the original poster who shared, “OMG ITS THE BEST! I was sooooo excited. There are about 30 more pics and videos of this moment. I’m THAT pet mom.” Another person expressed, “Adorbs. Almost like the other kitty is showing respect by not trying to take over playing with the toy too.” The OP replied, “He really is. Hemingway was my first cat ever. I adopted both of them in 2020. The other cats name is Peep and he came to me as a teeny kitten, so he learned everything from Hemy (who was 14 at the time I got him)! He shows Hemingway respect and love all the time. It’s almost too cute to handle.”
