A recent post by Summer reminded us that there was a Birbug hiding in the closet, and that we had been promised we would get to play with it if we were good kitties. Of course, we’re always good kitties, so we don’t know why it took so ridiculously long to get to try it. After destroying his last wand toy, Pierre asked if he could use it to teach Wand Toy 101.
Pierre: Hello, everykitty! Today, I’m demonstrating basic wand toy technique. Basic technique only requires you to be on the ground. As a matter of fact, you can lay right down on the ground, if you want. When the wand toy goes past, grab it!
The key is to always keep your eye on the toy. It’s sneaky, and if you don’t keep watching it, the toy might thump you on the back of the head. Sure, your human may say they’re sorry after you get thumped on the back of your head with the wand toy, but it’s pretty embarrassing. Better not to let that thing out of your sight.
Once you get hold of the wand toy, grab with both paws. If you don’t, it’s going to get away. Then bite! I like to chew and maybe drool a little… you know, to show it’s mine. But the important part is that you show that wand toy that you’re in charge now.
