Slash goes Fishing

I want to show you a new 'fishing' game that I really enjoy.

Here's how I play it.

I start the game by giving my fish a really good thwap...

Making it swing back and forth really madly.

And that's when I try to catch it.

I usually start by swiping at the fish.

As soon as I've caught it with my paws...

I will bring the fish to my mouth...

And bite it!

I will then drag the fish up on to the cat tree.

And give it a few more celebratory bites.

I never want to let the fish go.

But Mommy says that if I do not release it...

I cannot start a new game.

So I will reluctantly drop the fish from my mouth...

And start a new game right away!

Sometimes the fish swings around so wildly...

That it takes me longer to catch it.

I will try to hook it with my right paw first...

And then my left.

When both paws fail, I will use my teeth.

I will snap fiercely at the fish.

But I don't think it is scared of sharp teeth.

When the fish keeps escaping me no matter what I do...

It can get very frustrating!

But I keep trying.

And what do you know?

Success!!!

Oh sweet success!

You are mine, Fishy Fish!

With a firm grip on the fish...

I try to pull it up carefully.

Because if I am not careful, it will drop from my mouth and escape again.

Once it is safely up on the cat tree...

I will chomp and chomp on the fish.

I will gnaw and chew and crunch and munch...

Until I am all tired out.

So that's my 'fishing' game.
I hope you've enjoyed watching me play it!

wow! what a superb game--an' you are obviously a master!! you have marvelous control over that thunderpaw of thwack, and we admire your restraint. if we could thwack that hard, we'd just send it flyin' across the room and then go look fur somethin' ELSE to do!

Playing Catch And Release makes the fun last longer (although I am also a fan of Finders Keepers).
