Snack Puzzle

Goro & Niko love game involving food.
So I include it in their daily activities.

Freeze-dried meat for the game

Game Board
Scoop snack out of various modules

Snack Hunt
Find snack put at random places

Roll & Eat
Roll paper towel tube and get snack out of it

Highway Chase
Run and jump up & down to get snack
put on shelves & trees

And the latest addition...

Snack Puzzle

This is a tough one. Kids have to move
sliders, levers, balls, etc. to get the snack.

It's hiding, Goro.

My goodness, Niko. You are genius!
You figured it out already?

.....Maybe not.

Um, Goro. You are a smart boy.
You can do it.

G...good point. But no, no.

Well, kids ARE smart. I showed them how to
play, and they have become pretty good at it.

Here is the video Goro made.

Have a fun new week, everyone!


  1. Lovely story... what they do for food .

  2. Oh whst geniuses you've got there :) Som who's more proactive in these games?

  3. Oh,Oh !
    Now will my mom-person make me work for the food too :)

  4. We love puzzle time too, even if it is working for food!

  5. This is wonderful . I love to see cats have fun and not be bored. People don't usually interact with their cats enough and cats really love the attention. Working for the food keeps their minds active. :))

  6. I love the interaction. Your cats will become too intelligent and take over the household, though :)

  7. WOW! You are very smart kitties!
    We liked the video :)

    Treasure and JJ

  8. So smart cute lucky

  9. Those food games look like so much fun and you two are very impressive!

  10. Our Mama likes to do that too. She also uses empty egg carton containers to put treats in and then we can scoop the treats out of that! :) You two are cute and clever!

    the critters in the cottage xo

  11. You guys work hard to get all those treats!

  12. Mommy says it's a dang good thing (for the world) that neither of you have thumbs!

  13. What fun! Mom bean doesn't play those games with us, but we know that Saku would find a way to steal the treats if we did. MOL

    Have fun guys!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  14. ooooh now our mom wants one for US! That's way COOL!

  15. I want to try this game! So does Binga, but I bet she would prefer breaking the toy instead of trying to figure it out.

  16. OMG, what a interesting food game box!

  17. Oh My Goodness. Star Power !
    How smart they are plus so very handsome.
    But I can't get over how they use their tiny paws.
    After reading your toy post I gave to daughter's cat the wooden block game with the holes where they can get the ball and toys out. He loves it.

    cheers, parsnip

  18. These are awesome pictures!! Puzzles keep them sharp, just like they do us! I showed Phil, and we both loved your video, we laughed and laughed! They have mastered teamwork! They are very smart! Where did you get the Snack Hunt (the white board with clear bottles on it)? Is it hard? I have never seen anything looking like it. Maybe our cats would like it.

  19. That's an awesome food game! You both ARE pretty faces AND geniuses too! What a great video, Goro you made us laugh and Niko you are so cute at that game! Have a great week, my boys!

  20. What a great game, Goro and Niko! And you two are SO good at it. :)

  25. That is some contraption for getting the treats.

  26. They obviously have a good time hunting for the snacks...I do the paper towel roll for Boo. And empty cereal boxes with the lids pushed in, it gives me a few minutes of

    Gorgeous babies.


  27. Dearest Tamago,
    Wow, that would have been a great gift for our felines' birthday today! Found it on Amazon and put it in the wishlist. On a rainy day I always see them become bored easily so this is super!
    Always so fun to visit you here.
    Yes, we booked our trip in such a way that we were home for our kids' birthday. We visited Arizona for 6 days and got back early Saturday morning by 2:00 AM.
    Sending you hugs,

  28. There's no one else we know of who goes to such lengths to keep their Cats interested and engaged and active. Impressive! We're not sure if Nicki could figure out any of the snack games, but we're pretty sure Derry couldn't. LOL.

    Thanks for stopping by; it's much appreciated.

  29. too cute! they learn quickly. :)

  30. That is one terrific game. Wonder if we have any geniuses here?? You boys figured that out in a hurry. Well done. The video was great. You all have a great day and enjoy this great weather we are having.

  31. What a great game ... how smart Niko and Goro are !
    Really enjoyed the video :-)
    Have a wonderful week,

  32. You two sweet boys are really smart, you got that game figured out in no time. I would like to play that game but Chancy would eat all the snacks before I could get them I bet. Maybe Mumsy could get him and game and me one too...that might work. You all keep having fun and enjoying those yummy snacks. Hugs and nose kisses Pooh

  33. Dearest Tamago-san; Wow, yes we call your boys genius, how surprising that they can learn so swiftly☆☆☆ And so amazed and have fun to see the cute video of them♡♡♡

    Kind of having SO busy early spring time p;) But transient cherry blossoms are beautiful here now. Hope that the new week for you two and boys is a blessed one, Tamago-san(*^_^*)
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear Japanese friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

  34. That video was very fun to watch. You are handsome and talented boys!

  35. You two are definitely geniuses! We are very impressed with your food game skills. That looks like fun - we need to try it!

  36. Seeing the fun game with your cats. Makes me think of my dog. I will go back to my in-law's house during Easter holiday to try "50 games for dog" a book I bought for my daughter not long ago from charity shop. A peaceful Easter to all, Thanks for your comment Tamago!
