The two on the floor (Anchovy and Minion) have actually tag-teamed. Two mouths plus four paws covered six of the seven holes. Meanwhile, Paisley is carefully tracking the appearance of the prey, looking for patterns.

There's also a Yak ottoman which Anchovy likes to ride. Funny story. When I first assembled the yak, Ancho bumped it's nose and went behind it to sniff it's bum, but she couldn't find it anywhere.
