Kibble in a Toy?

We don’t eat kibble around here, but scientific study has shown that cats who do eat kibble can lose weight with feeding enrichment like puzzle feeders. Using some kibble usually reserved for occasional treats for Pierre, Newton tried out a puzzle feeder intended for feeding kibble. As usual, things didn’t go quite as planned.

Newton: I know there has to be a way to get this food out of here…

Newton tries out the puzzle feederNewton: Oh, hey… I like this! Easy access!

Pierre: I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to work.

Newton eats from open puzzle feederNewton: It works to give me some treats. You’re just jealous. I’m going to take what’s left of my puzzle feeder and my kibble under the bed where you can’t stare at me eating. Didn’t anyone tell you it’s rude to stare?

Newton picks up the puzzle feederNewton: Oops! Lost my grip.

Newton drops the puzzle feederNewton: But check this out…. it’s like a smorgasbord all laid out for me.

Pierre: Are you going to share that smorgasbord?

Newton: I don’t see your name on it…

Newton eats scattered kibble from puzzle feederAshton: Wow, Newon, thanks for getting the kibble out of that puzzle for us!

Newton: ** SIGH **

Everyone shares some of the scattered kibble

Behind the Camera

Pierre: It’s National Camera Day, and I’m on the receiving end of cameras entirely too often. So today, I’m going to be behind the camera instead. Say cat treats!

Take Your Cat to Work Day

Newton: There has been an injustice, and we need to talk about it.

Newton is displeasedToday is take your dog to work day. If you want to take your dog to work, go ahead, don’t let me stop you. But this is species discrimination.

Take your cat to work dayCats can be very helpful at work. We can take dictation.

Newton writingGive us a red pen, and we can proofread your writing.

Pierre works from homeWe’re good with computers, too. Though we do find it kind of hard to open the lid of a laptop without a little help.

Pierre with laptopAnd we’re great at mailroom operations.

Newton with stampsEspecially receiving. Did you say you received a lot of boxes at work? We’re great with those.

Pierre in boxBut you know… I think it might be better just to take your dog to work after all. I have some important business to tend to here while you’re gone, anyhow.

Newton snoozes blissfully
