Be Careful What You Wish For by Spunky Doodle



Yesterday was my 7th birthday (aka Gotcha Day).  I have had a good seven years here in my house.  I lived outside only for about 8-10 weeks maybe.  Karen was impressed with me because I was so cute and brave.  When I was just a kitten, I a great ambition to climb a very big tree.

Well, thanks to all the votes on "Spunky Doodle and the Kong" I got my very own little tiny iddy bitty one for my birthday.  It is not as much fun as I thought it would be though.  It's hard to get the food out.  I only got a few pieces the first time I tried.  Karen ended up rolling it for me.  She says "You are smart, you can do this, Spunky."  I am not so sure.
stick game:  I find stick under towel or pounce on top.


I got so frustrated that it made me throw up.  Karen's battery died so she didn't get that on the video, but then she switched cameras and took some of her playing stick with the paper towel with me to make me feel better.

After Karen left, I didn't give up and continued to learn how to do this.  I did it!  When Karen came back later she was so happy to find my little Kong over by my tent (so she knew I had moved it) and only one piece of food left inside. 

Sometimes we think we would like what others have but then when we get it, find out it doesn't make us as happy as we thought it would.   Did that ever happen to you?

Spunky, I am with you - I think that is an awful lot of work just to get one treat!

A big Happy Birthday to you Spunky Doodle. We have had that happen around here a lot. Buy a toy that you think is going to be a hit and no one likes it. Glad you learned how to do that on Spunky. We have never had one of those.

How Cute!I think my cats would just sit and yowl at me until their food was placed within easy reach in their bowls.

Heather: Thanks, Heather! I vomit pretty often so am used to it. My food is all MINE! I do not share it.

Beaded Tail: Glad you liked my video! Thanks for watching it. I had to think very hard to do this.

Mona: Thanks!

Sparkle: Oh, there is more than just one piece inside. Karen filled the whole thing up for me. It's much easier though if she just drops it into my bowl. I did learn to knock it off the table and then more spill out easier. I didn't do that when the camera was there though so it's not on the video.

Marg: I like most of my toys. The only one I really didn't go for was the big mechanical mouse that lit up and went in circles making noise. It was really stupid.

Ceodraeocht: I think you have smart cats! I didn't think of that.

Sandy: Thank you for stopping by and singing to me!

Daisy: Thanks for coming by, Daisy! Hope you enjoy some treats today. This was actually my supper!
