Oscar Reject: Snacktime with Lily



Not every documentary film is Oscar-worthy. Here's one that didn't quite make it to last night's awards: Snacktime with Lily.

In this video, I'm feeding her pieces of Eukanuba Indoor Cat Formula (which must be quite tasty). If we'd had the sound on, you would not have heard any crunching -- she swallows it whole. But man, those little teeth are sharp!

Pardon the mess in the background: We really should have considered proper staging prior to filming. Perhaps with audio and a tidier kitchen, we'll be back in the race for next year's awards. :-)

You need to toss it down the hall and let her work for it! I love the bell!
My cats love to chase their snacks and it's very hilarious!

You need to get her into commercials; she had ME believing those things would be tasty!

Soooo cute! Snack time is fun time around here too...although the biggest task of all is trying to stop the dog from eating them before the cats get to them :)

Too cute! I make Chester 'work' for his food - knock around a treat ball or jump & swipe them off the counter edge. Purely for my entertainment. ;) LOL

OMG how cute! I love how she guides your fingers to her mouth (and the resulting "ouch"es we got to hear, lol!). My cat won't touch anything someone's hands have been on...
