Valerian & rose hip tea
Tonight Nikita started lapping my steaming hot herbal tea consisting of Valerian and rose hips.
Honestly, Russian cats astonish me. (He's bilingual, by the way. He answers to the American beckoning "pss pss pss pss," as well as to the Russian "kiss kiss kiss).
I remember riding horses through citrus orchards. Some of the more mulish ones would hold up the whole lot of us (we cut through in a single line with permission) as they wanted a few oranges or grapefruit.
Also watched a circus elephant eating grapefruit with great skill. He used his big toenail to cut it open and then used his trunk to juice it into his mouth. The first juicer! Amazing.
One of my cats comes out of nowhere when I have tomato anything and tries to eat it. Another liked soymilk when I used to use that in cereal, it was if she knew it was milk in the bowl, she did come from a farm tho.
The funniest was my ex's cat, he loved toothpaste! Trying to brush my teeth while he was crawling up my chest was always fun LOL
I will not eat anything that walks, runs, skips, hops or crawls. God knows that I've crawled on occasion, and I'm glad that no one ate me. ~Alex Poulos
I have kitties that will eat all kinds of stuff. My tabby Stinky Bear, will eat raw broccoli and anything else he can get his paws on!
My tuxedo cat, Johnny Cat loves all the veggies off pizza (back in the sad days) until I found out not to feed your cats onions--gives them irreversable anemia. He also loves loves loves green olives! Go figure, huh?
And lastly, my cat Tony Balonyhead, and been seriously checking out my
green smoothies--it wouldn't suprise me to see him start drinking them.

They seem to instinctively know this and eat the grass to make themselves throw up, so I was told many years ago. (Maybe research has since shown different.)
I had a raw soaked cashew accidentally fall on my kitchen floor and my cat hockeyed it only for a second til she realized how good it smelled and promptly ate it! LOL But she's had enuf. I offer them now, and she isn't interested lol.
Back in 1982, I had a cat that loved to eat iceberg lettuce right off my plate if he could get away with it lol That stuff has NO nutrition right? lol Go figure...
All my cats like melon and several of them like banana. Pineapple is also popular. I have a picture somewhere. The dog eats raw carrots.
I adore this post ! so cute ! now I just want a cat ! yeeeyyy
We have a great dane and he eats fruit like crazy...melons are a favorite, and if you eat an orange around him you have to clean up a puddle of drool afterwards. durians, bananas, corn, clementines, grapes, peaches, anything. sometimes we give him lemons- he chews on it for a second then drops it and gets the funny look on his face of someone who just ate something tart...its amazing how much personality animals have.
