Games Cats Play, part 5: YARRRGH!
Playing Field: Anywhere in the house where Cats can be up higher than the humans, or with sufficient hiding spaces for Cats near human walkways.
Game Time: Any time of day.
Player A: Cat
Player B: Human
Game Play: Yet another "surprise game". Since humans are always preoccupied with one thing or another, this game is really effective in bringing them back to reality. Player A will take game position either hidden from Player B's view, or higher than Player B. As Player B stands under Player A's position, or as Player B walks by Player A's position, Player A begins the game and reaches out a paw to quickly touch Player B, causing Player B to yell, "YARRRGH!!!"
Player A's objective is to get Player B to yell, curse, drop items, trip, jump, or any manner of causing embarassment and humiliation. (Isn't that what we Cats really want, anyway?)
Player B's objective is to not look like a fool.
Points: This is a win/lose game.
