Going To Werk At My New Job

Hi Pals,

A couple of weeks ago I told you about my new werk with the puzzle box. Well, now I have a new job and because I took on added responsibility, I got an increase in pay - 2 more treats!.

This is a new game M invented (or maybe I should say tried to invent - it's a dumb game if you ask me).    

See those two caps?  Well, she puts this tiny treat:

If you can call that a treat - you can barely taste it because it's so small.  But it  sure is good and I like it.  Anyway, she puts that tiny treat under one of those white caps.   Then she tells me to "Watch Mario" as she moves those white caps around to trick me.

Hmmnm, I think it's in this one maybe.  
"Success!   YUMMMMMM!"
Sometimes M says I don't pay attention and just don't "get it" because I turn my head  and look at the wall or something.  She even told D my elevator doesn't always go to the top floor".   Whatever that means I'm not sure, but I'm guessing it's not  something nice. 
"My elevator works just fine lady - your  elevator is the one not working.  This is  really a dumb game and I just don't feel like doing it now!  When will you ever catch on?"
Do any of you have a job?

Mario I don't know a single kitty that likes elevators anyway. I think you did great at that game.

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

We agree wif Abby. Seriouslies, we have FOUR legs, and we ALWAYS beat the humans up the stairs.

But we'd be okay with a game that gave us noms. Until we got tired of it!

Mario, I stand by mine and mom's claim that you are smart as a whip! Your e,elevator does too go all the way to the top! Tell M to cool her jets!

Katie Isabella said...

You look so adorable. Xxxxoooo

Cathy Keisha said...

I don't have an elevator but the peeps use one so I guess theirs don't go up to the top floor. You're smart as anything in my book. I hope she doesn't put meds in those cups if you ever needed any.

Mario, you excel at your new job!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

My human wants to try this with Binga! I bet she would be good at it too.

Prancer Pie said...

You make it look like fun, Mario!

We think Princeton would just steal the bottle tops and run off with them. MOL!

Happy Sunday! XOXO

Oh dear. We think we heard Mommy mumbling about US needing to work. Eeek.

You sem to be pretty good at your job, Mario!

Most of us supervise, The Beebs keeps #1 cozy in bed at night, and Genji gives cuddles!

Purrs,

Mom just doesn't realize how smart you are. Too smart to play silly games.

Tamago said...

Haha the game looks quite fun to me! I did play the game like this with my boys. I put treat in one of my hands and let them decide which hand has the treat. They didn't play and got treat anyway.

Caren Gittleman said...

OMC Mario you made me laugh! I am with you pal! Mom tried that same trick with me some time ago and my "elevator" must not go to the top either because I was less than thrilled. I was thinking "JUST GIVE ME THE DARNED TREAT LADY AND CUT THE CRAP!!!" MOL!
Love, Cody

McGuffy Ann said...

Poor guy. Mom is expecting you to work?! There must be laws about that! ~xo~

Katnip Lounge said...

Your Mom's take on the shell game is terrible...there should be THREE caps, and a treat under each one!

JessieJaney said...

this is just so not right ... she makes you work for your treats? But they are a right for all anipals? MOL at elevator ... tell her you take the stairs darling Mario xxx's

Nerissa said...

You have an elevator at your house? We just have stairs...

Purrs,
Nissy

Marg said...

Mario, we think your elevator is just dandy. Who wants to work so hard for a treat. But you did a couple of times, so that is good. Hope all of you have a great evening.

Katz Tales said...

Shhh, don't let our Servant get the idea that cats work! But hey, can we share your treats???

meowmeowmans said...

We think your mom does that game wrong, Mario. She is supposed to put a treat under BOTH caps. Just saying!

Ann Staub said...

Aw that looks like a cute game! Shiner got a new game recently. I pour food into this toy and she has to figure out how to get it out. I don't think she really likes that lol

marley said...

You haz da biggest brane I ever did see my pal....

Katie http://myminipetpig.com/ said...

That sure looks tricky, gotta work for those treats. Must keep you busy Mario!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

What *IS* that tiny little thing?? Sheesh--you're a ManCat & you need ManCatly treats!! Also, I think that game she's playing with you? We think it's a version of something called a Three Card Monty Scam and we think M could get herself arrested. So she should watch it. She should also give you all the treats you want so you don't call the Vice Squad on her.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

Oh wow, we just realized our puzzle box has been away fer MONTS! We gotta have that back.

Kjelle Bus said...

My mom alway´s make me work for the treats too !
Yesterday she tryed to get me to go slalom between bottles *rolling my eyes*

Oui Oui said...

Oh, Mario, your mom is just exercising your brain! If you get foods for it, that is ok.

Kitties Blue said...

Hey Mario, if it involves treats we're all over it, even if the game is dumb and the treat is itty-bitty. Got to get those good noms wherever you can. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo.

Brian said...

Well Mario, my Sister Gracie would sure like to give that a go! Have fun pal!

William said...

Hi Mario! At least you get treats--holy moly, at my house they can expire before my mom remembers to bring them out!

Clooney said...

We think that your elevator is working just purr-fectly, buddy! So glad to see that you got to go outside finally (maybe those hots let up a bit, we hope). Have a wonderful week! PS: My job is keeping my Human in line.

rumpydog.com said...

Now see, they're all about hiding our food, but watch how upset they get when they find out we've been hiding our poo for them to find!

Katie and Glogirly said...

Mario, you did GREAT!!!
Those elevators are way overrated.
xo,
Katie & Glogirly

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hey Buddy! What's up? She still making you WORK for your treats?? You need to go on strike for shorter hours.

Marg said...

We have to agree with Spitty. Work for your treats?? Who ever heard of that. You need to get that Mom trained a little better.
By the way, tell the Mom that our Person says it is time to go dancing. LOL.

Katie Isabella said...

You are such a smart boy! No wonder I love to date you at Nipclub.

Timmy Tomcat said...
