Cats and puzzles do not mix. My kitty, Zoe, and I have a difference of opinion as to what is helpful. While I like to match the pieces and lock them together, she insists that sweeping them to the floor is the objective. I am aware of the discrepancies in our methods, so when I leave, I try to remember to cover the entire table.
Last week, I forgot to cover the table, and upon my return, my husband’s comment was “looks like we need a broom to sweep up all the pieces.” Hmm. Zoe had not been very helpful. But then, three days later, I heard her playing with something under a cabinet. Upon further inspection, it was revealed that she was batting a puzzle piece across the floor like a hockey puck. See, she really was being helpful. She pointed out the piece that we failed to find when we swept the floor.
