On our ongoing quest to find Ruby a toy:
We’ve got something new for you, Ruby!
Hey, now we’re talking! That looks interesting.
Well, go on. Check it out!
You don’t just “check it out.” Don’t you humans know anything? You’ve got to play hard to get with something like this. The key is to ignore it initially.
… and gently, quietly sneak up on it while acting like everything else is more interesting. Like this scratchy post. See? I just needed to touch it but notice I’m not taking my eyes from the prize.
Or like this smell. I’m close to the toy yet, this smell here is more important. So important, I needed a good, two-paw grip on my tower post to position myself right before…
… I go in for the kill!
Hey! Um… NO! Ah, stop, hey, don’t… um, STOP! HEY! Wait… RUBY STOP! NO!…
Tasty! Got another?
