What possible reason could my 1-year-old cat have for constantly dropping his favorite toy in his water dish?.

Many cats do this, and I interpret it as a "go fish" kind of game in which inventive cats engage. It is one of many ways that they enrich their environments.Most cats enjoy a climbing tree or gym and the company of another compatible cat. Cats get on best when they are related, such as littermates or mother and offspring.
