How to Get Your Prize

MISTY

I think it's time for me to give another lesson about being a house lady. Since today is "garbage day" at our house, I want to talk about how to get something from the trash, so everyone, especially kittens, pay attention!! Playing in wastebaskets is OK for routine things like paper, but if you want a good prize, you have to get it from the big pail.

It's best to wait for garbage day. That's when Mom goes around and empties all the wastebaskets and the pail under the kitchen sink comes out, too. Now, this is your big chance, so pay close attention. Do exactly what I tell you, and you'll get a prize!

Wait until your human gets the pail from under the sink. Then when their back is turned to get the big black plastic bag, have your paw ready, claws extended. Quickly reach into the pail and grab the first thing you touch. You have to be very quick about it so they don't see you and try to take your prize away!!! Don't take time to look at what you got...just clench the prize firmly between your teeth and run off with it! It's best if you run into a room with carpeting where you can examine your prize closely.

OK, let's see, what did I get today?? What's this...a teabag?!! (sigh) I don't have any use for an old teabag. Well, maybe I'll have better luck next time.

Who left this thing on the carpet?

Oh that...Misty stole a teabag out of the trash. Just leave it there. Mom'll find it when she vacuums.

No wonder I can't keep this rug clean!

Misty, that was a very good lesson you taught us! Sorry your prize was not very good this time.

You are furry ingenious, Misty, but maybe teabags on the rug aren't a good thing. Try lurking under the table at human mealtime instead, sometimes good things drop on the floor and you can gobble them up if you're quick!

Misty, that was a great lesson! I'm sorry this time you only got a teabag, though. Maybe next time you'll get something really good!

I'll be hoping you get something extra-special next time to make up for the teabag, Misty!

We don't keep the pail under the sink. It has a lid. I do my best to rescue food that might get put in there from plates and the counter tops though...

Thank you for the lesson Misty! I guess that's one of the reasons why my humans keep the door to the kitchen closed!

You are very talented and quick to be able to fish your prizes out of the garbage.

Good one Misty! I will try this tomorrow when it's our trash day. I'd love to get my paws on some good treasure!

Wow, you are good! I thought I was good but you're an expert. You're right, you just have to grab whatever is there and leave. Once I stole some cold medicine and that was promptly taken away from me.

That is a very good technique, Misty. We hope you get something better than a tea bag next time!

Some teas have catnip in them so don't disregard that old teabag so quickly!
