Hunt Week - The Phane

Today's hunting ground might be called the dining table by some, but for me, it's the Cellophane Hunting Ground. Oh how I love my crunchy prey. It tickles my gums.

The Dining Table is Off-Limits for reasons I don't understand, but I love it up here for so many reasons. I rarely stay off, if I can help it. One of the many reasons I love it up here is that it's the drop off spot for fresh purchases. Have you ever noticed how often fresh purchases are wrapped in fresh cellophane kill?

As a kitten, I would nibble on regular plastic, but as I've grown into my grannyhood, I've realized it's best to hold out for the good stuff - true Cellophane. The very finest is beef jerky bags (with jerky inside) and the extra crunchy variety.

Sadly, my prey is whisked away quickly. I would be more upset about it, but if swallowed it can cause some gastric distress. For this very reason I suggest two things:
  1. Don't eat the aluminum foil, it tears easily and isn't very tasty.
  2. Make sure your human sees you crunching the Phane. They'll sprint to remove it from your jaws and that's half the fun. Cellophane covered in cat spit is a real turn off to the humans. Think of their disgust as a little bonus.

  1. You are so right foil is like claws on a black board. But, plastic is yummy. love their expressions when they have to pull it from your mouth. Live sitcom right in your own room. Kitchen table tops rock. You never know when they might leave a morsel un attended.

  5. Fin, I like chewin' on the stuff too! And even tonight, I brought Tommy the thin top piece, torn of a treat package to her. You'd think I brought her a live spider of something.

  10. Totally! I must try some of the cellophane, it sounds yummy and what a great opportunity to leave a 'slobber gift' for the humans.
    Thanks for the idea!

  13. Samson is a big 'Phane' hunter too, Fin! He is a master at ripping it open before you even notice. You two should hang out.

  14. We have never tried Phane. We will have to keep a lookout for some.

  15. Those are very wise words, Fin.

    I can sense the presence of aluminum foil from distances in excess of 50 feet. And believe you me, I keep my distance.

    The phane though... have not tried it. I like the idea of the slobber transfer effect. Sounds fun!

    mew!

  21. Fin, I am learning so many important things from you!

  22. Yes, here too!!! The table is susposed to be off limits and you are so right about everything that comes into the house ends up their first. I haven't tried the aluminum foil yet so thanks for the heads up on that one. Won't try it thanks to you.
