This year was a bit different though. We were able to find Easter eggs that had shapes cut into them, so the kitties were able to smell the treats better through the holes. And we had three new participants! Last Easter, we only had Delilah and Sampson, so this was Sophie, Sassy, and Caster’s first egg hunt.
We put all the kitties up in the office while we hid the eggs. Once all 18 were hidden (17 regularly hidden eggs, plus one grand prize egg that was hidden extra good), we opened the office door and the hunt began! It’s so funny to watch them. It usually takes a few minutes for them to catch on to what they’re supposed to do, but once they realize the treat smell is in the air, they jump on it. It probably took 20 minutes for all of the eggs to be found.
Here are some of the highlights:
The next couple pictures are some of my favorites. The best and funniest parts of the hunt were when the kitties were SO close to an egg and didn’t even realize it.
Delilah: 4 (including Grand Prize Egg)
Wow! Concatulations Sampson!!! He is the reigning champion, as he won the hunt last year too. 🙂
Sampson would also like to show off this beautiful card that his girlfuriend Astrid (The Cat on My Head) made for him:
