Toy Technique

Today I will show you some popular toy techniques. First I will demonstrate the single paw grab. This takes lots of eye-paw coordination and concentration!
Next is the two-pawed grab. The double-paw method is best for ensuring the toy does not slip away.
Finally, here is the Harley Quinn Method: a swing and a miss! But he does have good paw alignment.

Mr Puddy said...

OMC !!!! Harley !!! I never seen any cats can do that !

Junk Drawer Kathy said...

Daisy! That's concentration if ever I saw it!

And Harley looks like he's praying. Also, his hind foot looks like a chicken leg. Cluck cluck!

LP said...

Those are good techniques Daisy! Harley you look as though you are praying for better luck next time! Heehee. Poor Harley. We tease you mercilessly....

Eric and Flynn said...

Daisy, you are very determined when you play. Poor Harley, he tries hard.
We laughed at Junk Drawer Kathy saying his back foot looked like a chicken leg, so we had another look, and yes, it does resemble a chicken's claw.

Keisha said...

Oh, boy. I'll have to try those. :)

Abby Normal said...

We like your flat-eyed focus especially in the 1st picture. Harley looks like a beggar!

The Island Cats said...

Great tutorial! That last pic looks like Harley is purraying! MOL!

Lin said...

Harley's technique is what we call "The Clapper". While it looks cute, it is not very effective. Good try, Harley!!

Lois said...

practice practice practice! Thanks for teaching me these techniques.

Does it work for human toys?

Marg said...

Harley, you kind of look like you are saying your prayers.That really is good paw coordination especially you Daisy. Those were some great moves Daisy.We are practicing right now. All of you have a great day.

-d ma said...

you have professional techniques. By necessity, sometimes Thompson resorts to a three paw technique using his back paws as well.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We could see you were both eyeing your toys the utmost concentration.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
