Open Top, Open Side

Goro & Niko love playing food game.

They gather around puzzle box when
it's about time for the game.

Especially Niko, who is usually reserved,
gets very energetic.

Niko = Food game master

He wants to play game with you, Katie san!

Fishing out of glass? Piece of cake!

Any shape of glass.

Goro often gets left behind...

Sorry for Goro, but 
I find his sour face very cute :-)

Don't worry. I make sure Goro
gets snack, too.


One day...

Instead of standing the glass as usual, I lied it
down. No particular reason, just for a change.

To my surprise...

Niko, go from the side.

Then came Goro!

It was interesting to learn their
strong and weak sides.

And sorry for Niko, but
I found his sour face very cute :-)

Don't worry. I make sure Niko
gets snack, too!

Food game is played under supervision and
kids always get the same amount of snack :-)


  1. How interesting that Niko and Goro have different ways of playing the food game. Though we never want to play games with our food...we hope the mom doesn't get any ideas. :)

  2. If you two worked TOGETHER it would *almost* be as good as growing thumbs! Around here John and Grayce are the food-game pros.

  3. I need to find the kitty game box for daughter's partners "spawn from hell" kitty. Her kitty is nuts !

    I love the way they play the games.
    You are such a good Mum !
    yum yum yum !

    But thehamish would find the treat eat it and find the other treat before you could count to one. Especially if it is chkikin'.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Dearest Tamago,
    Oh, my how they know when it's about time for the food game! They sure can come to their human Parents and remind us! This is hilarious and what a trick for putting the glass on its side.
    Loved the sour face from Niko too; so seriously sour.
    Sending you hugs,

  5. We are glad that both Goro and Niko like the food game and what a master of the game Niko is, how cool! Have a wonderful week!

  6. We can't play fun food games like that here because Binga hogs them all and will literally try to take apart anything that comes between her and treats! And then there's Boodie, who is not bright enough to retrieve treats from even the simplest of contraptions. I would probably play nicely, but I'm stuck between these two.

  7. Since Chucky cannot have any kibble, I haven't played food games with them, but maybe I can find something else as a treat to use. I'll look at the pet food store soon!

  8. That game is very creative. Sad to say, but I don't think Derry would figure it out at all, no matter what the kibble was in. LOL. But Nicki probably would get it. :-)

  9. That does look like a very interesting game!

  10. What great games! MOL turning the glass on it's side sure threw them for a loop. That's funny. Caster likes to fish my ice out of my drink classes. He thinks it is the funnest game ever! But it usually ends in a spilled drink. MOL!
    And, for the record, we think those sour faces are pretty cute too!!!

  11. We play that game here too with our big puzzle box and, yes, one kitty, Rumpy, hogs the treats. We are going to try the other.
    Very interesting about the square glass and Niko Go Goro Go MOL

  12. That does look like fun. Goro, you are such a good sport to just let Niko do all the playing. We are glad that the Mom makes sure you both get the same number of treats. Take care.

  13. Ahaha I git engrossed watching them in pictures and reading your narration. That's one fun activity.

  14. Aw! So cute! Looks like a lot of fun! Did they enjoy it?

  15. doodz...we wood have sour face & sour stomachs ....pleez ta ask yur mom ta play food game with sum stuff thatz GOOD two pizza pie, donuts, sghetti, FISH, burgerz...


    happee week a head ♥♥♥

  16. That looks like a lot of fun and you are very clever kitties!

    The Chans

  17. Since Goro and Niko have different strengths and styles, they make a very good problem solving team! :)

    We are glad to hear that both get a snack no matter what.


  18. I do love your daily life "series", Niko and Goro! I'm really very inspired to create Food Games here.

  19. Oh, I love to see Goro and Niko playing that food game ... it looks like great fun !
    And that they both get the same ... I knew it, I would do it too :-)
    Have a wonderful week,

  20. words can not express how much I love this post. I mean I like your blog and all that, but this post.. warms the cockles of my heart..

  21. MOL! Turning the glass sideways? We'll have to try that! guys your sour faces are TOO CUTE!

  22. You are such a fabulous mom coming up with fun games for your babies and I love that they still get the same snack. Plus the sour faces are cute

  23. Hmmm, if they get the same number of snacks, I’d let the other guy do all the work and then I’d get a snack anyway. Score!

  24. Oh, guys are giving our mom bean ideas. She might not make us work for our treats.

    Have fun Niko and Goro!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  25. that looks like a really good game

  26. Esse jogo poderia se tornar o favorito aqui hehehe

  29. We love this kind of play/enrichment. Kitty kisses from our boys to yours.

  30. Funny to see how they all have their own food-catching talents. At least, everyone gets treats now.

  31. Hell, Dearest Tamago-san;
    Great to find that Goro-chan also has talent as well for food game♪ Their sweet sour face gave me LOVELY after dinner smile♡♡♡ And knowing both of your boys have the same amount of snack kind of relieved me(*^_^*)

    ps. So sorry for my belated comment, Tamago-san. 旅行中、主人をぐずぐずと直していなかった歯痛が襲って少し迷惑をかけてしまいました。(治療中、ハハ) でも、2人一緒での旅を楽しんで来ました(^_^)v

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear Japanese friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

  32. They look so adorable. Really trying hard for a snack.
