Mocha meows loudly walking through the house and then drops a toy at my feet. What is the appropriate response?

Wow! She's a beautiful kitty! Delilah does the same thing. She meows the same way when she has a toy in her mouth. When Mocha does that, she is honoring your importance in her life by bringing you her "kill". In her mind, she is surely a great, talented huntress. She has stalked this "creature", pounced on it and dispatched it, and not she is bringing it to her much-beloved leader...you. Praise her and tell her what a good kitty she is. And be happy that she, unlike my late, sweet Ernie, is not bringing you headless and de-gutted mice! 8o)

She wants to play! Try throwing the toy and see if she fetches it. This might initiate play time between the two of you! ^_^ When you're done, you can give her a treat like a SmartBite before she goes to take a nap!
