My two big cats never showed a real interest in playing with shoes. Most times they spent their day chasing each other or taking naps. But, the new kitten loves shoes. He's always trying to crawl inside a shoe. He loves finding big tennis shoes in the closet and exploring them. Maybe he's just playing with the shoe laces. Does your cat like to play with shoes? Do you think cats grow out of their shoe craze.
