Sometimes, trying to get a cat to care about playtime is like getting a small child to enthusiastically eat lima beans —it’s just not in the cards.
Despite the odds not being in his favor, a hopeful French Bulldog gives it the old college try. In a video uploaded to YouTube this week, Pixel the Frenchie is eager to play with a cat named Czika. For nearly two whole minutes, Pixel tries everything he can think of to pique Czika’s interest — even offering her his favorite pig toy.
He performs the play-dance ritual all dogs seem to know.
He then tries the standard “Silly Sidestep.”
Next is the “Hilarious Hop.”
Finally, he offers up his pig.
Czika seems to tolerate all of this in true cat form: with mild interest. Then eventually she runs off, presumably to get some peace and quiet.
Sorry, Pixel. Maybe next time, buddy.
