Like a Salad With Your Salmon and Turkey? From a Year AgoPosted: February 22, 2012
Mewsette enjoys a nibble on the Boston lettuce I’m about to turn into a salad. Looks like a complete meal to me.
“No dressing, please. Thanks for the fresh water.”
Mewsette likes her salad greens plain and natural. I’ve known cats who liked salad greens before, but usually just for a nibble on something fresh and green. Mewsette is a serious consumer, at least as far as my cats go. She pursues them into my salad bowl, munching significant amounts of any type of tender salad green.
The funny thing is she wasn’t eating on that cabinet and I didn’t offer it to her, I only set the lettuce down for a moment so I could pick up a few other things and go to the sink, but she must have smelled the lettuce and jumped up for a snack.
Her list of other approved foods is an interesting collection, chick peas, roasted edamame beans, cooked oatmeal, macadamia nuts (I know they’re not good for her, I just don’t get that trail mix any more), any pasta cooked or raw, cherry tomatoes. Oh, and she likes baked goods. I really can’t find a pattern, but I keep an eye on her.
Just in case you wondered if this was the only time, here’s another: What, You’ve Never Seen a Cat Eat Lettuce Before?
