Steve has definitely been easier for me to keep exercised than Luce was when she was young *because* he is so game-focused. Luce would occasionally condescend to chase a flirt pole, but mostly she just wanted to run and do her own thing, the heck with me. But if she didn't get run and run hard, she was jumping on my head, destroying things, etc. She was an utter PITA in other words.
