Oh Elsie, you are something else!! One of a kind!! I can only imagine the look of disbelief as they saw Meg and this tiny little fluffball running towards them!”And I use “fluffball” as a term of endearment! 🙂

And why play silly games to get a treat when all you have to do is whine and your Mom hand feeds you!

Can’t wait to hear more!

And Yes Isa…we need video!

Well Sally, that was a pretty good attempt and your music was so cheerful. I think Meg gets into the drama of her music to really get into the hunt of the food.

And that Frankie should have cleaned up with his hound nose! Whether there was music or not. Or does it have to be live for him to go on the hunt.

The most excitement with my cats is that I put some kibble in a shot glass. Eli puts his paw in and digs out out at a time. Mona tries putting her nose it, gets nothing, so whacks the glass so all the kibble goes flying – well it works, it got her thinking.

Still, dogs are more fun to play these games with than cats. I’m glad I can enjoy the videos of Meg and Elsie, and of course Frankie and Myrtle.

As a videographer, I’m fired. Alternatively, maybe I should learn to use my phone more effectively. So here we go:

Sorry they’re so dark. Also my apologies for the lack of music/singing – trust me you do not want that.

We’ll give it another go outside once the backyard returns to normal (DIY projects = disaster).
