Games Cats Play, part 6: Turd Hockey

Playing Field: Anywhere in the house, although high traffic areas or areas with guests of the humans are preferred

Game Time: When the humans are awake

Players: Cats

Game Play: This is a "Cats Only" game, although humans are needed to be the spectators. (WARNING: humans may cause forfeit of the game, if they catch the "puck.")
The "Puck" should be a choice turd, usually the drier the better. A moist one will tend to not roll easily and the players will soon lose interest in the game. The idea is to bat the turd around the playing field until either:

  • Players become bored

  • The puck is lost under furniture or appliance.

  • The puck is captured by humans.



If the players become bored, make sure to leave the puck within a high traffic area in the house. If the humans have guests over the house, make sure to aim the puck at shoes, or any body part low to the ground. It also becomes more interesting to see the human reactions when the puck is at the opposite end of the house from the litter boxes, because it causes them to consider how far it had to travel over their carpets and floors before getting to it's end location.

Points: No points ... just a fun, chase game.

Hey, Ming...thanks a lot for all the good ideas. I think I've got all the annoyances down to a tee - my mom hasn't slept through the night in like, weeks. Mee-ee-ee-ow. I was up late last night practicing turd hockey in the living room, but mom caught the puck after I fell asleep on her head and she had to get up to blow all my hair out of her nostrils. Are you guys starting up some league or something? - Trouble, the appropriately named cat

Wow!!! We NEVER thought about that one. I did once leave a present on the bed but I was really, really mad. I'm going to tell the others. We have stairs and it would be so funny to see the look on Mom and Dad's faces to find a puck on the third floor. THANKS Ming.
Your Cousins.
