Benji’s Fishy

I found his little Fishy in the closet the other day where it had disappeared for months.  It’s small and flat so it slips (too) easily under doors, couches, stoves or what have you.

Benji fell in love with it all over again like a long-lost friend.  Chasing it. Batting it around.  Flinging it into the air.

Carrying it here and there like a prized trophy and always on the move making picture-taking hard – though you can see I tried.

I found him in my closet wrestling with the shoes where he had deposited it. Then with my purse where he fished it out again.

He seemed to like to put Fishy into precarious situations so he could rescue it again. Near the sofa for instance where he would occasionally bat it underneath.

When he couldn’t get it out I came to the rescue though it wasn’t easy being a big couch and all.  So I moved Fishy into the kitchen where it slid around the floor nicely.

until it needed another rescuing – easier this time.

As I write this Fishy has gone into hiding again.

I’m sure it will turn up someday when I need – I mean Benji needs – more entertainment.  Honestly, I don’t know who had more fun, him or me.

    • Thanks Pete. He’s so fun to watch with Fishy! He seems to prefer it to his bigger toys but it’s so easy to lose. I wanted to get a good shot of him leaping in the air but he’s too fast for me. 😁

  1. Aww! It’s so fun to imagine what they must be thinking when they play like that! You got some adorable photos! It is hard to catch them in action like that! 🐱🐟

  2. I was taken aback until I realized that the title referred to a toy fish. For one awful moment I thought you had found a dead fish he had hidden! Great fun. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Lol Monty has one of these and loves it too!

    I think they work best when they didn’t play with it for a while…so they’re no longer used to the catnip smell…

    • Thanks for your comment. 🙂 I just rescued it from the overzealous spam folder! 🙂 🙂 You may be right about the toy – absence makes the heart grow fonder. 🙂
