Sunday was the big day — the annual KCC Easter Egg Hunt!
We hid 50 eggs, plus 1 grand prize egg, all around our living room for the kitties to sniff out.
Pretty much everyone guessed that Sampson would win again. He has won 7 out of the 8 past egg hunts, after all… Did he win this year though?
I’m not so sure… Let’s see!
(I apologize in advance for the lack of photos. I was engrossed in the action and didn’t do a very good job of taking photos)
Kylo Ren did really well! Here he is scouting out the kiddie pool, where he found an egg!
Raddy was into the hunt too! We always hide plenty of eggs around on floor level for him and Sophie to find, but usually Sampson and Kylo find them before Raddy gets a chance. I need to come up with a better system to counteract that, but Raddy did well and was engaged for most of the hunt!
This was Gryphon’s second egg hunt, and he improved greatly from last year! He might have been the one to beat out Sampson this year…
Sophie… well, Sophie is consistent I’ll give her that! She enjoyed watching the festivities from her usual step.
And the final score…
Sophie – 0
Raddy – 2
Delilah – 2
Kylo Ren – 13 + the Grand Prize Egg
Gryphon – 14
Sampson – 19
Okay, so Sampson really did win again!
Gryphon and Kylo came pretty close though! Admittedly, they did get a little help towards the end.
As predicted, Sampson “tossed his cookies” about halfway through the hunt, leaving about 14 or so eggs left to find. He does this every year. Once he throws up, he usually takes a break from hunting, which is when the others slowly begin to catch up. He eventually joins back in the hunt, though with a little less fervor than before.
Here’s our video stream of the first 10 minutes of the hunt, if you want to see Sampson (and the other kitties too) in action!
Anyway, a big congratulations to Sampson! He better watch out though, because Gryphon is inching his way to stealing the crown…
Until next year!
