One of these things is not like the others

Can you find the thing that doesn't belong in my cupboard?

Smart Kitty

The vision for this project spans back to last winter.  I worked on it by fits and starts between March and last week.  Finally, I got over my fear of messing it up and used some marine adhesive to glue it all together.  It turned out to be far sturdier and stabler than I expected - also washable. 

It's a cat puzzle feeder.  I stash some dry food in each pipe, and she must fish it out to eat.  This gives her a challenge and makes eating a little more interesting.  It supposedly also forces her to eat more slowly, and maybe feel satisfied with less food.

She figured it out really fast.

Who's a smart little kitty?

(Cats are not cooperative subjects for action photos!)

29 by my count...

My feet and knees started hurting, so I stopped picking them after a while.  there were several left in a tuft of new growth, but I thought 29 was enough for one day.  At least 4 have 5 leaves.

I know it looks like I'm trying to weld cardboard, but I'm telling you there's steel behind the flash.
