If they hear me fill the toys before opening the gate, there's a race to get down the ramp first. Noli and Boadi bolt across the floor straight to the toys. They each try to eat the most pieces of pepper first. (Or get side-tracked running the egg-cersizer into someone else's rear end.)
These two continue to struggle with 1st level on the Teach N Treat. Bertie and Pinniped had figured it out and moved it with much more ease. I occasionally find leftover bits of pepper that Noli and Boadi couldn't locate. I think moving the handle of the cover far away from the section you want to get food is a difficult concept to grasp. Noli keeps trying to grab the edge of the cover and pull it off, which just doesn't work.
The egg-cersizer is much easier to figure out: if you roll it across the floor, food randomly appears in front of your nose. That's pretty cool!
Dried corn husks have also become a floor-time snack. I've discovered they're Boadicea's favorite; she'll make a few trips to the floor to polish them off, whereas Cannoli will take a few bites and move on to something else.
