Treat or Toy?

We left off on Tuesday with Cashmere thinking the string treat part of the treat toy was a toy, not a treat. (I hope you followed that sentence because I think I confused myself..)

Leo had left the field to the girls so Greg took one of the string treats, broke it into a smaller piece and offered it to Leo. He'd been so excited when I opened the package of those string treats that we were sure he was interested enough to give one a taste. And then we'd, finally, have a treat that Leo would eat!

Leo: What is this you're offering me? It smells intriguing but..

Leo: Oh hey! It's not what I thought it was! I know what it is now!

Leo: It's a stringy toy! *whack, bat, whackity bap!*


Back to the girls. Greg gave the rocky wobbly toy another shove to show them, again, that if they played with it, it would give them treats! 

Glitter: Ok, I think I'm getting the idea now.
Cashmere: Oh yeah? What's the idea?

Glitter: Ok, it's either a torture device designed to make us smell the treats that we can't get to.
Cashmere: Hmm, I don't know. What's the "or"?
Glitter: The what?
Cashmere: The "or"! You said "either" and you can't have an "either" without an "or" so what's the "or"?
Leo: *whap bap bop shoveshove tap* All I know is the bit he gave me has some excellent play potential!

Glitter: Oh right. Well the "or" is.. It could be a daddy toy designed for him to play with. The treats rattle around in there and he must like the sound or something. He's messing up and letting his 'rattle' parts fall out. So he's obviously bad at playing with his new toy.
Cashmere: That makes sense. But man, you'd think he could find something other than OUR treats to use as his rattle bits! I mean, how rude!
Glitter: I know, I know. But at least he's letting us have them when they fall out.
Cashmere: Hmm, does that make us his maids, cleaning up after him?
Glitter: *crunch* I sincerely hope not..

Oh boy... Well, they don't seem to have the idea quite yet.. One more part to this story to go. Do you think they'll get it??

Well, OK, we might be unsure of a string-treat. We've kinna been taught that strings arent treats and we shouldnt eat them.

Somehow we manage to break treat dispensers open and get all the treats out at once. We'll wait to see what these guys do. :)

We've never seen a treat dispenser before but we're sure we wouldn't like our treats being thrown about on the floor as Mum always puts our treats in a dish!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

It's certainly taking them a while! Binga would have eaten the string treats and whapped all the treats out of that thing and gone looking for more by now!

Looks like a great toy/treat dispenser for kitties like you who like to play with things and enjoy snacks. If I got one of those for Raven it would just sit there....forever.

We've always been taught that strings are verboten for us kitties. Wait, what? These are strings we can eat??? Minds blown! ;)
