Obstacle Training

IZA:  Sometimes a tossed mousie will end up in an awkward place.  In this case, an open dishwasher rack!
It can be really hard ta get the mousie out.  Ya gotta walk REAL careful around the wires stickin up!
But thats the pink softy mouse - my favrit.  So I really want ta get it out an bat it around some.
I can shove it around an even get a claw in it sometimes,  but it gets pulled loose by those cross wires!
The mousie wins THIS time!  But its good practice.
Sometimes I can get it out, sometimes I cant.  Sometimes TBT will help me with it, sometimes he doesnt.

 -------------------

BTW, the mystery plant in yesserdays post?  Garlic!  TBT just buys a few organic garlic bulbs in the grocery store in early October, separates the cloves, and plants them on Columbus Day.  They grow slowly all Winter.  Around June or July he can harvest it and let them dry.  3 bulbs turn into 50 an they will keep fer almost a year!

You have to put your thinking cap on to work that mousie free! Kind of like that infernal box toy with the paw holes TBT made for you.

You can't hook the mousie with your claws and snatch it, Iza? Must be frustrating!

We all luf our dishwasher too! Your post yesterday had the prettiest crocus! Seems like spring has been here all winter already.

Brian said...

WOW! You might just end up with an awfully clean mousie!

Those mousies can be very frustrating sometimes. We were on the right track yesterday but not close enough when we thought it was onions.

Does this mean the mousie gets a bath? That doesn't sound like it won!!

We all hate it when our toys get stuck in awkward places. Poor Fenris Daddy accidentally threw his purple octopus up in a tree. Fenny tried his best to climb the tree but well with him being a dog it didn't work out so well.

Mum would fish out any toys from the spikey machine.

Yes, that is us in our video! No we can't change our colors either. Mum didn't do any fancy color thingy either. We may think it is because the light wasn't really bright in the room. Who knows, we isn't meezers!

We can tell that you are trying hard to get that mousey out of the cage, Iza. You need to yow at TBT to get it out for you before it gets a big baf.

Found you via Brian and CB. We can't believe we haven't visited you before! We love Siamese cats and gardening.

Cory said...

OOOHhhh that would be no fun at all if mousie ends up going through the wash cycle!!!

Allie: *SQUEE!!* Oh Iza, a PINK mousie! I can see why that would be your favorite - you have SUCH good taste!

FaRADaY: MOwzers, Mommy got so excited to hear about the garlic - she wants to do that too!

Maxwell: OBSTACLE Training - yes, *that's* what I do! MOL - Momma's always telling me "get out of the dishwasher Maxie" but now I can say she's interrupting my Training Regimen!

Cara n Crew said...

Iza, that's almost better than one of those cat puzzle toys! We hope TBT lent a paw this time :)

We wanted to say, we got our Mr Chewy box yesterday and weren't impressed with the packaging either. Either Mr Chewy needs smaller boxes or our mom needs to order more stuff, mol! but we aren't completely discouraged.
