I was tying several pipe cleaners to the end of a string so that Val and Elaine could play "fishing," in which Elaine was a fish and the pipe cleaners were worms. I think they believe fishing poles are used for the sole purpose of feeding fish. "We need little worms for Elaine to eat, Mommy!"
Tesla LOVES to chase and play with pipe cleaners and was showing great interest as I tied them on. When I was done I handed the string to Val and said, "Here you go! Though it looks like you might catch a cat, instead."
"A catFISH, you mean!" was her gleeful reply, and she kept giggling and repeating 'catfish' to herself for a while as Tesla chased the pipe cleaners.
