Newspapers and Fishing Poles

Guest post from our friend Emma, from MyGVGBV Life.

Sunday morning is one of Bert’s favorite times of the week, aside from mealtime every day. My cat bro Bert can’t have cat toys to play with because he eats them. He does have a few toys, but Mom keeps them safely locked up unless she can supervise him.

Mom subscribes to the Sunday paper as she likes to get the ads, and Bert loves to read the paper! Most people don’t get a paper these days, but in our area, the Sunday edition is still fairly popular.
Sometimes, Mom goes nuts because Bert jumps in the paper, pushes it all over the room, hides under it, and generally makes a big mess of it. Now that we know how he loves the paper, he gets to have the sections Mom doesn’t read. He loves to hide under them.

Bert also has a fishing pole that he loves, so Mom got the idea to play with his fishing pole while he hides under the newspaper. He loves this game! Not only is it fun, it is a little work out for him with all the grabbing and stretching. Bert takes it very seriously too as you can see from the way his claws are extended trying to catch the fish!

Cats love paper – paper boxes, paper bags, and newspaper, so why not let them play and have some fun while you read the newspaper?
