Learning from Elders

As Miguel says, Maya is in school now, learning the facts of cat life from her older housemates - Minina and Luna.

The other day we went to Cancun and bought a large bag of Whiskas cat food to feed the cats across the road, and my neighbor's cats. The cats here in the house eat Kirkland food from Costco. But Luna has decided she'd like Whiskas instead, and helped herself to opening the bag and fishing out some pieces.

Maya was a fascinated on-looker; I can just hear Luna telling her eager student exactly how it's done...

First, you scout out the territory...



Then you pick the site of attack...



Here's where you need all your strength, to tear open the bag with your teeth...



Then you stick your paw in and pull out as many pieces as you can grab...



Ah...Sooo good...and I'm not sharing...



There, now see if you can do it...

nice little photo essay almost like a security camera

Maya has grown: it's been a little less than a month since I saw her!
