The game of treats

Zzzzzz… purrpurrpurr….

Luna sleeping partially under blanket with feet up

I know you’re there, but must get blanket off head.


Luna pushes blanket off her with stretch


This had to have been progress.

Luna sleeping with head stretched up on back on blanket with paws hanging

Okay, sit down near me and tell me what you want.

Time’s a wastin’!

Luna laying back with paws hanging in front

Spit it out!

What do you mean you want to play… a game?

Luna looking sleepy eyed while on back on blanket

Why should I play a game when I’m just fine here? What’s in it for me?

Treats you say?  You said treats?

Luna somewhat conscious with back on blanket and paws hanging

Let’s get this straight.  I can win treats.  In your game.  Right?

We play on the stairs?  Okay, I’m coming.


Luna on back looking between hind legs upside down

I’m stuck.  You go ahead and I’ll meet you over there.

Okay, I’m here!  How do I play?  Yes, this is me, over here.

Drawing a red circle for you.

Okay, I go on the staircase you say?

Luna at bottom of stairs looking up

Meow.  Now what?  You say you have treats up there?

Imma coming!  I like this game!

Luna racing up stairs toward treat

No stoppin’ me now!  Rrrr!!

One step at a time… getting closer…

Luna peeking up stairs toward treat

Keep your cool.  Don’t look needy.

My precious…

Luna jumping up stairs toward treat

Almost at the top.  I’m going to eat this treat of yours.

Wonderful “game”.  What the?

Luna near edge of stairs looking at treat with hand about to grab it

Oh, I get it.  I have to grab the treat before you do.

Haven’t you heard of “cat-like reflexes”?  Where do you think that comes from?

I see your treat, and I’m gonna eat it.

Luna at top of stairs about to pounce at treat

And I’m pouncing… three, two, one…

*munch* *munch* *munchmunchmunch*

Don’t feel bad!  It looked like you had a better chance than I thought!

Another round?  Here I come!  Up the stairs!

You best have a treat up there.

There it is!  I love this game!

Welcome to the paw of doom, my little treat.
