Wackin' it Wednesday

Dad loves to have a fire in the fireplace during the winter. But he is a lazy builder, and so buys the premade logs he can just put in the fireplace and light (now you know why I love him). It means we have all these cool boxes around. And Dad, the genius that he is, turned one into a tunnel box almost as neat as Skeezix's (it was certainly cheaper). And we were being "environmentally sensitive" (never mind all that carbon we sent up the chimney). But, he made it a little more challenging. First, the entry hole is a bit small, so I usually need to size it up (laying down, of course, again, being lazy)....

After sizing it up, I squeeze in

And from this vantage point, I can attack the feather toy without being seen (of course, as I can't see my tail, no one else can either)

Sometimes, I can really get a hook in! Here is a short video of me playing in my box, I tried the ignore it for a minute trick...and was really able to get that toy!

What a great box you got! I especially like the FLAMES on the side of it. It is a good spot to attack the feather toy from too!

Kate said...

What a fun game! That video looks like you had a great time and the feather thing was just asking to be pounced on!

How wonderful! My goodness I bet I could fit in that little hole (I'm tiny). You are very stealthy about being completely covered. Good job Tara!

See, you're lucky you're an only cat, because if we had a tunnel like that, we'd all be trying to get inside of it at the same time, which would lead to a huge traffic jam...Can you imagine getting ready...wiggling the butt, ready to dart, you get, ready, set, and go....running...faster...only to get to the hole and see that someone hasn't got all the way through it on their turn...Nope, this would be a crisis.

Good going, Tara! You should take some toys inside there, like bottle caps and other stuff you can find.

Victor Tabbycat said...

Where are you? Did you go inside the box? FUN!!! I need a new box RIGHT NOW!!!

William said...

You're so lucky to have a box like that. And very clever to use it to sneak up on that toy!

Catzee said...

Ooo, that am a furry nice box! What a nice Dad to get it jus' fur you.

Kelly Cat said...

A box to hide in and a human who'll hold a toy for you to play with -- sounds like a real good time for a Princess Meezer! And the video just proves it.

Spoiler said...

You have all the best toys. Now Catsby wants a box, too.
