Thumbs-up for Cat Treats


The opposable thumb is the one thing keeping our cats from getting to their treats by themselves. It’s interesting to see, from sheer determination and will, how they devise their own creative ways to get their treats out of the container.

Obviously we help them in the end. Everyone got their treats during our bi-weekly claw clipping. But it never hurts to let them try on their own. After all, they are independent creatures.

Jade and Dax used the spill approach and knocked the container to the floor to get the treats out. Ingenious, but kind of predictable. Jasmine and Spooky on the other hand had their own methods which were unsuccessful in the end but where more entertaining and unique.

I see you in there.

I\'m coming to get you!

Okay, now jump into my paw...

Hmmm, to small to crawl inside...

Maybe I can stare them out?

Ok, back to staring. Hey everyone, out of the pool!
