Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!
Quote Of The Week
Although all cat games have their rules and rituals,
These vary with the individual player.
The cat, of course, never breaks a rule.
If it does not follow precedent,
That simply means it has created a new rule and
It is up to you to learn it quickly
If you want the game to continue.
Do you have a favorite game that you love to play? I, Magellan, am always eager to play a good game of Pounce!
The rules of Pounce are quite simple – but I’m happy to share them in case you’ve never played!
- The game starts whenever I bring you a toy. This includes when you are sleeping – when you eating – when you are working – when you are watching TV – any time you are not focusing your full attention on me!
- The objective of the game is to entertain me. The best way to do this is to use the object I have brought you and to emulate prey that I can stalk, hunt and otherwise pounce upon.
- To keep me active and engaged, you must run me around the house so that I can leap across the furniture – jump and pounce on things – tear up and down the stairs and my cat trees – and hide behind well-placed barricades that you have set up for me in advance as I stalk my prey. (You did plan out my course, did you not?)
- Of course, if you are running me around the house the way I insist on being played with – you know that means that you are getting a fair bit of movement in too!
The game usually ends when my humans wear themselves out, but never fear – there is always another toy and another game of Pounce waiting to begin!
