- Brittni Young wanted to teach her cats how to play tic-tac-toe using treats.
- She played the board game with Archie and Jax, their two cats.
- Brittni has already figured out the part of how to get other family members involved in this board game with their pets.
Brittni Young decided that she wanted to teach her pet cats how to play tic-tac-toe. She figured it will be easier if she gives them treats.
She found a video of another cat owner who had been able to play with her cat, and she knows that this is something that she would have to try. There is nothing else to do while confined inside her house, so what better time than now?
She set up a tic-tac-toe board, placing treats inside the squares and decided to have a go with Archie, her 6-month-old kitten. Archie is very active and inquisitive, this made Brittni think that he would enjoy the game with her, especially when cat treats are involved.
“He’s very affectionate and very much still a kitten,” Brittni says.
Brittni put the tic-tac-toe board in between herself and Archie.
It looks like the cat is eager to have an activity with his owner and the added treats he could eat because the game is just a bonus.
Brittni ended up winning the game opposite Archie, probably because this is the first time he got to play the game.
She soon set up the game board again, playing with Jax next. The cat was a little more hesitant than Archie, but later on, she got the hang of playing tic-tac-toe too. Brittni also won this round. It was a close game, so the winner made sure that the cat got all the extra treats as a consolation prize.
It was at this point that the first contender wanted a rematch. Archie keeps on interrupting the tic-tac-toe battle between Brittni and Jax. He tried to take over the board game from Jax.
This opens the possibility that the family could now play board games with their family pets, something to look forward to in the weeks to come. Brittni has already figured out the part of how she would get some of her family members involved.
This could be their family tradition.
“I also played with my 11-month-old — she used yogurt snacks, not cat treats,” Brittni said.
