I can 'sit pretty'! Like when meowmy says for the dog-guy to sit and beg.
Meowmy makes corn on the cob by roasting it in the husk. This makes the husks quite crunchy and brittle. A very different texture than 'raw husks.
Anyways, some of the husk pieces reminded meowmy of long feathers, so she tried to get my attention by tickling my nose with the end of a husk leaf. I was 'captured'! A new toy! I almost could grab it...but she held it just out of reach...so I sat up to bat at it with both paws at the same time. It looked like I was conducting an orchestra! MOL!
After a bit of more corn husk teasing, meowmy gave the whole piece to me. She wanted to see what I would do with it...NOTHING! It wasn't wiggling anymore, didn't taste like much because all the freshness was roasted out of it, and I really didn't feel like putting it in my mouth to carry it anywhere...afterall, I had been napping when all this started! Back to nap time fur me!
Mom found a cat toy that had corn husks and ribbons on the end of a string, and we loved it! So much so that we ripped it to shreds, and mom still finds corn husk pieces in the oddest places. MOL
Sounds like you had fun playing!
I hope I remember the right words, the corn silk - it's like blonde hair isn't it? Well don't you like that stuff too? I used to go crazy for it, bugging my dad "what's that? What's that?" but he knew I could not eat it! I went crazy whenever he brought any kind of vegetable or flower into the house. I just inspected everything!
My furbear, Toki, did stuff like that, too. He thought green onions looked like yummy tall grass... and he tried to nibble at most green veggies if they were left unattended on the counter.
We, the current kitties, stick our heads in almost all the grocery bags as soon as they come through the door. We are looking for yums! MOL!
