Tortie Torture Tuesday

A challenge even for swift paws!

Every so often my human tortures Binga, although she calls it “exercise.”

It is challenging, even for a treat thief!

She takes this contraption and puts a couple of treats in it, then lets Binga figure out how to get them! This time it is a couple of Greenies — can you see them in the lower left hand side of the toy?

Nothing makes Binga crazier than treats she can't get

Then she lets Binga try to figure out how to get them.

Boodie is pretty dubious about the whole thing.

Can you see Boodie’s silent commentary in the background?

My human even shot about a minute and a half of video footage — and Binga did not take a break!

But persistence… and a little outside-the-box thinking pays off.

Also an act of destruction.

    Now you KNOW I’m gonna say ‘Don’t mess with Binga’ right?

    BUT I’d also like to know where you got that toy! Rumblemum wants to buy something like it for us – what a weird coincidence that you posted this right when she’s looking everywhere trying to find something similar!

    How did she get it open? Binga is a smart girl. Our head peep can’t figure out how she got that ball out! She also thinks that she needs to find one of those for Ashton, who needs all the exercise she can be motivated to get.

    Binga knows noms are the most impawtant thing. Plus, we luff the way Boodie is just sitting there, watching. She’s manages to be beautiful and adorable at the same time.

    Our purrents would go crazy listening to that for as long as it would take us to get the treats out! By the way, we have the same pirate ship as we saw in the background of your video. Do you love yours as much as we love ours?

    We think there would need to be more than two little treats for us to put in that much effort. Glad Binga’s persistence paid off for her. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Bravo Binga ❗ Our Person doesn’t torture us with treats. She just puts them in small bowls on the floor 😀 She does trick us into thinking we are going to get treats sometimes when she is opening a bag of dried fruit. They sound just like the bags our treats come in 👿 Bandit, Selleck, and Their Person, Emily.

    Binga was very persistent but we wonder how she got them out. All we have to do to get Greenies is look cute so we hope our mommy doesn’t get any ideas of making us work for them!

  8. says

    Binga was very interested in those treats….Boodie not so much!!

    We would like one of those too. Well….not really…we just want the bag of treats but Mom thinks
    we could use the exercise!

    That IS a torture device! Couldn’t you just chew it?? But we are glad Binga got her treats. We wonder if the kitties here would like that toy.

  10. says

    Binga, you must really like those treats. I’d let them sit there until mom got tired of the toy sitting on the floor and she’d free the treats for me.

    Have you ever considered playing the drums? I think you have excellent technique and would be very good at it.
