The other night, my partner got up in the morning to find Sleepers lying outside her bedroom door, apparently having been left there by one or more of the cats.

Several pairs of tiny holes in the bag and instruction sheet confirmed this theory. Either it took several tries to pick up in the first place, or the move happened in several stages. In either case, the cat(s) extracted it from a bag full of games and carried it up a flight of stairs.

Sadly, due to feline skill at operational secrecy, there's no picture of a cat posing with the game in its mouth or anything like that.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure this couldn't have happened were the game not lightweight AND compact AND in such flexible packaging, all much more so than other board games. So basically nestorgames are ideal for cats.

(Except for playing them. Probably?)

Nestor, we need a new advertising campaign:

Sleepers: 9 out of 10 owners said their cats preferred it

New information:

Apparently at some point in the past the cats carried a tablecloth halfway up the stairs, so I guess actually large objects are okay.

Also, it turns out the Sleepers thing happened twice in a row. My partner put it back into the game bag the first morning, and the cats left it outside the door again the next morning.

I.e. the cats took Sleepers to the sleepers?
