I am constantly trying to find new ways to entertain my easily bored and full of energy Bengals. They sleep, get up and run through the house thundering along the hallways and down the stairs into the garage… then, no longer distracted they come to me: “I’m bored… play with me”. They can be very demanding if something I try that doesn’t interest them I can see their disappointment “Oh, THAT again? Really is that the best you can do? How dull, how unoriginal.”
There are two running wheels in the house – one small, one large. I rotate toys, purchase new ones, play chase and tag, cuddle them, teach them tricks… and still I fall short.
This time I succeeded (but only briefly) by hiding the treats behind the toys in the back of the box. Once she figured out there were treats back there – Princess became engaged in the process of burrowing till she got her way.
Now I will re-cycle the box and give that idea a rest for a month – otherwise I’ll be glared at for my monotonous routines <G>.
