Food Game 2



Goro & Niko loves to play food game.


They (especially Niko) have become pretty good
at it, so I thought about trying something new.


OK, Niko. I put a snack in this box.


The box is light, which makes scooping snack difficult.


Niko successfully got it!


Now, turn for Goro.


Haha, it may be frustrating as box keeps moving.


!!


Oh, no! Goro's face got stuck in the box!

I rescued Goro from the box.
Snack fell off and Goro was happy to eat it.
I'm glad the incident didn't seem to scare him.


But...


It may have scared Niko out of his furs.


Mom's note: Goro & Niko always play food game under
supervision and bad box is now banned from the game!

Curly Tail



In my previous post, I mentioned Niko's tail
tends to get curled up when he is happy.


Thought I'd share more pictures of his curly tail...

Niko's happy kneading time

And an extra; Goro's remote controlled tail


No, just kidding :-)


Happy Sunday!

Happy Weekend




We had sunny Saturday!

Niko enjoyed bathing in the sun.


When he is happy, Niko's tail tends to get curled up.


What a gorgeous tummy :-)


Sleepy Goro's cute face.


Sunday was cloudy and bit cold.
Perfect day to be lazy.


Goro's tummy got extra fluffy :-)



We hope you had a nice relaxing weekend, too!

Cat Shelf



After living in one place for a while,
we think about home improvement.


Of course, improving for Goro & Niko.

This kitty walk was built over computer desk long time ago

With limited floor space, shelves sounds good idea.


So here we go. Installing shelves.


We attached fabric drawer liner on shelves
to prevent kids from sliding off.


After installation - our new cat shelves.


Goro soon began to explore.


This is my favorite part. 
Tummy viewing spot :-)


Goro, do you like your new shelves?

Goro seems to enjoy them :-)

Niko, on the other hand...


I hope he will get to like them eventually.

Our cat shelf project is not over.
We are planning to install more later.

While back, Timmy Tomcat and his family gave us an
award. We admire their fantastic kitty walks and perches!


Thank you for thinking about us! We'd like to share this
award with lovely Katherine and her family at Retro Rover.

Have a great new week!

Spring in the Air



It's officially spring!

Our bird restaurant is getting busier.


Goro overlooking the restaurant.


Maybe thinking about dinner :-)


Niko in his grass bed.


Talking to the birds.


Spring brings unwanted flying critters, too.

We set the wasp trap for Goro & Niko's safety. (We
do accompany them while they are out on the deck.)


Inside the house.
Here are flying kitties!





I hope spring has sprung in your area, too!

Food Game



I think food hunting game is a good way
to stimulate kitties' natural instinct and curiosity.
It's both fun and rewarding.


Here, I put a piece of freeze-dried meat in a glass.


Niko fishes it out of the glass...


Good job!


Now, game with Goro. 
I put this meat...

Goro, calm down.






Go, Goro. You can do it.


Finally!
(I didn't expect all the whapping!)


Good job, Goro.

Actually, yes. Look how Niko does next time.

So the other day...


Niko fishes the snack.


Out of glass.



After this unfortunate event, 
Niko had to rethink his fishing method.


So Niko began to fish the snack.


And eat it without dropping out of glass.


Sorry, Goro. No more mooching.


Well, later Goro mastered fishing, too.


Even though he is not as skilled as Niko :-)


Food game is fun! Just gotta be careful
not to play too much = eat too much!
