At The Games!

A lot of laughs, jumps, guesses, and good old fun was what the Halloween party was all about. A few of you have asked questions about the different games played at the party so I will fill you in with what I can remember.

Game 1 - Find the mouse.
As you can see from the picture above the bunny costume bear was holding a carrot and the mouse. No one spotted the mouse which surprised me as we all know that cats have superior eye sight. Maybe this game was played after too much catnip was consumed.

Game 2 - How many mice in the jar. (Correct Answer: 4)
We had many party guests that played this game the following are some of the participants and the number they guessed: Momo - 3, Tigger the FBI cat - 3, Opus - 4 (said 5 before Roscoe ate 1), Mr. Hendrix - 4, Alexi - 3, The Crew: Misty, George, Tipper, & Max - 3, Derby - 6, Samantha & Tigger - 4, Christine & Faz, and Trixie loved all of the games especially the mice in a jar but did not guess how many.

I am not sure what mouse Roscoe ate as there were only four mice in the jar, maybe he found one running around the house?

Game 3 - Bat the balls of yarn.

We all love to bat things around and this proved to be a fun game to play. Opus and Roscoe participated in seeing which one of them could bat the yarn the farthest. Also joining in on the yarn batting was Samantha & Tigger, Alexi, Zippy & Sadie, and Misty. I want to thank Beau for tossing the balls of yarn gently to Misty so she would be able to bat the yarn. I did, however, run out of some colors of yarn because some of my guests made sweaters for guests that became chilled as the evening got cooler. This was quite OK with me as there was plenty of yarn and I am so glad that no one got the chills. Thanks, that was fast thinking.

Game 4 - Who can jump the highest.
This was a favorite game among many, as cats rule in this area. Those participating were the following flying through the air with the greatest of ease: Momo, Christine & Faz, Daisy, Mr. Hendrix, Alexi, Samantha & Tigger, and Pearl.

I am not sure who this is but the picture was taken at the party. I was told that this dog jumped the highest and the farthest. I do not think it is fair because his legs are so much longer than ours. Oh well, there are no winners or losers only a fun time.

I hope this helps answer some of the questions you had about the games. I will keep you posted with part two of party re-cap.

Donny & Marie & Casey-I am so sorry that your mom wasn't feeling good over the weekend. I hope she is feeling better. Maybe we will meet at another party. Until then we can stay in touch on the good old blogging world.

I wanna play! I wanna play! Uh, what Mom? We missed the party. Oh.

Sassy Cat said...

Catzee-I am sorry you missed the party. Maybe when I have another one you will be able to come. You look like you would like to party. Let's keep in touch

That was a great report, Sassy! We all had such fun.

You know why none of us spotted the mouse - we were looking too closely and too hard. It is said that although cats have super peripheral vision, and can detect the slightest movement in prey that’s yards away, their close-up vision directly in front of them is fuzzy. I guess we all need reading glasses. Probably that's why Karl always make his appearance in various designer sunglassess to masquerade this little known fact.

Pyewacket has finally calmed down, after being so overexcited at her first party. She's been a bit difficult to live with for the pat couple of days.
The other cats were threatening to take her on a road trip to China - and leave her there!

Sassy Cat said...

Momo-You are right, next party I will have the mouse hidden on a string and pull the string every once in awhile so we get the movement.

Topcatsrule-I am glad that Pyewacket had a good time at the party. NO, you shouldn't take a trip and leave poor Pyewacket there. Maybe you should write to Opus and Roscoe's advise column and ask what you should do. They offer good ideas. I will tell you again DON't leave poor Pyewacket anywhere. You will be sad if you do that.

Wow, what a great repuurt! We all sure had a lot of fun. Looking forward to hearing more about it.

Still not sure how we ended up in the tub, but at least it was comfortable.

We would like to invite you to a party at our house next week. Check our blog soon for details!

We will give you a hint as to what it is all about
