The String Under a Blanket Cat Game - Valentines Edition

The String Under a Blanket Cat Game - Valentines Edition

Imagine I had a huge red-orange shag heart carpet? I CAN IMAGINE IT AND IT'S AMAZING.

Happy Valentines Day! I hand drew a version of this for Jay and it finally inspired me to blog because I absolutely LOVE this game. Basically, you get a huge long piece of twine or yarn, tie some stuff to the ends, shove it under a blanket, and then pull one end and watch your cats go crazy trying to catch the string. Here is an instagram video of our cats playing 'The Game'.

The cutest is that Finn gets all interested, runs and gets his toys and brings them to the blanket and lies on it, effectively ruining the game but it's adorable how much he wants to be part of it and play with the kitties. The other day I saw Lucy playing with Finn's huge blue rubber squeaky frog, lying on her back and batting at it and sometimes giving Finn come-hither glances (or checking to make sure he wasn't coming hither.... it's a fine line, and I do tend to be optimistic). Then a few days ago he caught and ate the end of the string, making him a true master of the game and probably earning him many kitty respect points. 

If you have any pets, make sure to spend extra time with them today, Valentines day! More furry cuddles for all!
