Thursday Thrills

Earlier this week, our friends at the Katnip Lounge all played a new game.  It was the brainchild of their mumkat Trish who took an ordinary toy and made a brilliant modification. 

We've all seen this box with holes that usually has crinkle or nip balls inside and the cats must figure out how to remove them.  Well instead of balls, Trish put treats inside!  Since we have the same toy at home, that the boys have long lost interest in, we thought we would give it a try too.

I give you Part 1of "Treat Teaser"...
hmmm mum, what's this?
there is something good in there
oh it looks much better from this side!
I'll use my mental powers to will the treats to move
stand back kids I'm going in!

Mommy is thinking about getting us one of those but we thinks Arty Mouse might crawl right in and eat all the treats.

Please help us celebrate Scylla's Gotcha Day today.

(Casper, I hopes we can sit under the Wisteria and enjoy the perfume and the lovely day. Your, Mouse)

Oh, this really does look like fun. We don't have this toy, but the mom just might have to get us one. She really likes the idea of making us work for our treats. :-P

This toy looks like fun, especially with the treats inside. Maybe I could use this to help my biggest lose some weight!

Isn't it funny how treats make everything look new and exciting.

I'm a big fan of treats myself, just don't know if I'd want to work that hard for them.

Mama Bear said...

Now that does look like fun! I saw it over on Katnip Lounge and told hubby we should look for one. After seeing your boys enjoying it, for sure I need to go shopping now.
PS No cat tree yet. I think we need one with a 6 foot extension for Sebastian so he doesn't need to worry about his personal space being invaded!

Tamago said...
