Dylan doesn't play. He has a cat tree, toy mice, laser pointer - no interest.
The other evening my daughter brought her young Pug over to stay with my pets while we went out to dinner together. She brings Pre's food in a Ziploc bag inside a Subway kids' meal bag. There is always a second plastic bag of food, in case of emergency. She acccidentally left the bag here when she went home, and Dylan apparently spent the night trying to get to the dog kibble. I found the lunch bag on the kitchen floor, the Ziploc in the living room, torn open, some food scattered along the way.
Thinkjing now that Dylan needs a puzzle toy with food as the reward. Such toys exist for dogs, but I didn't see any for cats when I was last in PetSmart. I put some liver treats inside an empty paper towel roll and taped the ends partially so the treats would stay in but Dylan could still see and smell them. I left it on the kitchen counter. It has remained untouched for three days, now.
