Hi everybuddy.
The lady with the yellow hair likes to play a game with me
by putting some of my toys up here on top of my scratching post
and then letting me knock them off.
It’s a silly game, if you ask me,
and sometimes I play along and sometimes I don’t.

I think I’ll humor her today and play along….


Okay…which one of you toys
wants to be the firstย 
to get knocked off of there?

Do your humans play silly games with you?

  1. Our human is always being silly and hiding some of our things – we have to pretend we don’t know where she’s hidden them!

  2. the answer is yes. the boyz just love silliness.

  3. Oh yes, our silly human does play games with us. That is so nice of you to humor your Mom, Zoey. That games looks like fun to us. You all have a grand day.

  4. Yes! I love balls and empty toilet paper rolls, so sometimes Mommy stacks a ball on top of the roll for me to bat off, and sometimes she hides little things inside the tp roll! –Truffles

  5. Oh silly games are fun – my Mom does a similar thing with me to yours and the “high up” game….Mom puts my toys under a blankie and those lumps make me VERY curious!!

    Hugs, sammy

  6. Yes, we love to play silly games with our kitties ๐Ÿ™‚
    แƒฆ husky hugz แƒฆ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  7. Actually Mom calls the game I play with my Neko Mouse the “Silly Game!”

  8. Yes, I do something similar and put stuff on the table near the couch and say, “don’t touch those”- they always knock them down ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. You are so cute pretty Zoey!

  10. We have to teach our mom that game!

  11. I don’t think that is a game.. I think that is her attempt to get you to…. *looks around*… exercise.. *gasp*

  12. Not really. Love your scratching post tho. Thank you for leaving a comment for our friend Sweepy.

  13. You are gorgeous Zoey! Our mommy throws our mousies downstairs every night so I have to deaded them and bring them back up for her to step on every morning.


  14. *rolling eyes*..why can’t they just leave our toys alone?

  15. You are so cute Zoey!


  17. Nice that she poses ’em so that the tails dangle a bit. That’s gotta be enticin’, for sure.


  18. We’ll, she tries sometimes but we don’t always humor her like you so kindly do, Zoey. It’s so nice of your mom to do this for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. We’ll play some silly games with our pups ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. It is difficult to ignore toys like that when it is so much fun to sneak up on them and give them a whap.

  21. That’s such a fun game ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure the lady with the yellow hair loves when you play along the silly game for her!

  22. How very kind of you to humor her. Happy Friday.

  23. We think you should knock them ALL off.

  24. My human had a game like that with Sparkle – Sparkle would be sitting on her desk, and my human would set a toy next her, and she’d knock it off. Then they’d repeat that over and over again. Usually the only part of Sparkle that moved was the paw that knocked off the toy.

  25. Mickey Mouser has me trained to sit on the floor every evening and drag his beloved Go Cat Teaser (mouse on a stick) around the room for an hour. I would like to sit on the couch but he won’t let me.

  26. Mum plays a lot of silly games like with us, and we love it ! She has to be creative (or very silly ?) because Zorro and me don’t play the same kind of game ! Purrs

  27. Oh, the silly games that humans play! Critters are much more sensible! ~xo~

  28. We play all kinds of games every day and invent new games and toys. Our latest is wedging the handles of 6 diff. wand toys under books in a row and letting the toys dangle. Only the most clever and persistent cat will figure out how pull the whole wand toy down.

  29. I think you secretly enjoy the silly game te he

  30. The humans around here like to leave various things on the kitchen counter to see if I will use them as a bed. Well, of course I humor them every time, what else is a cat to do?
    Love, Samantha

  31. Great game. My mummy likes to hide my feather toy under newspapers.An

  32. Zoey I hope you knocked them ALL on the floor. Yea fun!!!!

  33. Aaaaw Dat’s so sweet of yous to play along fur her sake. Mommy plays sum silly games wiff us too, and we always play alonbng. It weally seems to make hers happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    heerz two a warm, walleye, whitefish week oh end !! โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

  35. We are not sure if it is a game, but it sure is silly and drives us crazy. When it is super cold like it is right now and Mom can’t bike or swim, instead of getting on the treadmill, which is in a super cold room, she walks laps in our house all around the first floor then up the stairs to the second floor and back down over and over again. We are always having to run and dodge those moving feet. We think she has several screws loose. What do you think? Your game isn’t nearly as silly, Zoey. have fun, darling!

  36. Mom just picks our toys up and puts them back in our baskets for us to get out again.

  37. Silly games are usually the most fun Zoey.

  38. TW plays the same game with me and the Ultimate Scratching Post. Youโ€™re talled than I am cos I have to climb partially up to knock things off.

  39. We have the same tower and mom plays that EXACT game with us too! We love it!

  40. Our Mama plays lots of silly games with us.There are too many to name cause she is pretty silly!!
    She hides our toys under her bed blankets and tells us not to go under the covers. We do of course! Duh! She puts treats in empty egg cartons for us to fish out. And she plays the red dot game with us which we really love. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a fun weekend pretty Zoey ๐Ÿ™‚

    the critters in the cottage xo

  41. I think that’s a great game. I like to smack all my sparkle balls under the furniture and watch my mom sprawled out on the floor trying to retrieve them.

  42. SO, who volunteered to get knocked down???

  43. Hey, we have a new scratching post just like that. Only we don’t have any toys on top of it. Hmmm, we have a problem. We need to talk to Jan about this.

  44. Zoey, that game looks fun! I play a similar game with my mom where she puts one of my toys on the desk where I’m sitting and I whap it to the floor. Then she picks it up for me to whap again. I mostly play it to humor mom…she seems to get a kick out of picking up the toys…it’s the simple things that amuse humans, isn’t it?
    Have a fun weekend!


  45. My momma’s always playin weird games wif us.

  46. Sometimes I like to play hide and seek…but only for a minute ๐Ÿ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

  47. MOL ๐Ÿ˜† You know what? This game seems to be quite popular among the humans because ours like to play the same game with us! Funny, isn’t it? MOL ๐Ÿ˜† xx Roxy & Tigerlino <3

  48. That looks like a fun game.. Our silly game is getting the monster under the sheets.

  49. We play silly dog games but mom has been talking about getting a laser to see if we will chase it. Very cat-tish if you ask me! MOL!โ˜บ

  50. Zoey you are a good sport to play along with the game!

  51. That’s a great game and we want to play it right now! Daddy likes to chase us and pretend he’s gonna eat us all up…we LOVE it!

  52. Ohhhh we love our tall scratcher like that that! We first saw it on your bloggie and had to have it! Ralphie likes to have q-tips lined up on the counter in the bathroom and knock them all over MOL!

  53. They do have silly games, don’t they?! That was sweet of you to play along, Zoey!

  54. ohhhhh yes. But we must humor them on occasion, no?

  55. How do you know they didn’t crawl up there themselves? Those mousies deserve to be smacked off! Good for you for showing them who’s boss.
