Pennies from heaven

There is a game I love to play with Robin.

It's fun and with young kittens, it helps them develop their zeroing-in skills. Grab a handful of pennies. Place kitty on a landing or at the bottom of the stairs. Frohe top of the stairs gently toss the pennies! It's even more fun if you're out of sight! Robin LUVS when we play Pennies From Heaven!

Yeah..... I'm picturing Neelix eating pennies and getting poisoned or blocked.

Now PING PONG balls from heaven... I think that's something we could all get into...

Yep! In agreement with MowMow on this...many people don't realize how dangerous pennies are! First from choking, than blockages, and if that's not enough...poisoning...

Kurt, if you drink milk, or something with the same size caps, start saving those! Cats like to bat them around, and can still carry them...safely!

OR the plastic tab from around the milk top. When I open a new bottle of milk even MowMow shows up to see the fresh new tab. Nuckleheads!

MowMow, mine would love those to, except after one time, I had to get one of those "rings" un- stuck from Mr. Jazzy's mouth!:rolleyes:
So now...they just get the milk jug caps!:p

The other thing I can not leave laying around, is the 'real' emery boards you use to file your fingernails with! Both Mr. Jazzy and Precious, have a thing for those...and after Mr. Jazzy bit off a chunk, and it promply got lodged in his mouth...I'm still not sure, how I didn't get seriously bitten, reaching in his mouth to get it out...
No wonder I have Grey/Silver hair!

Seriously! I get hyperanxious over just having ONE my friends love reminding me what a nervous parent I'm going to make. Hate to admit it, but they're right raising Jasper has crystallized this in my mind haha.

Robin doesn't really eat 'em, he just POUNCES. I 1st started playing PFH with my orange boy, Percy. He was bored one day and just hanging out on the steps. I had a bunch of pennies, and... for the cat, the fun factor is 'OO! It's raining pennies! There goes another one!' Robin Hood lives up to his name, though. He only wants to play with quarters and dimes!

Seriously, if Kitty tries to EAT the pennies, Ping Pong Balls From Heaven would be a much better game!
