From ICHC, your best source of lolcattage

It's Caturday, dammit, and although everyone we know is off at the anti-Prop 8 rallies or some other useful, civic activity, we are nursing our soon to be surgically-altered leg (not soon enough, dammit), moping and mourning and feeling like a shut-in.

Also fending off cats who are after our chocolate. What is this about? The newest cat-trick at La Casa de Los Gatos: Zingiber and Gojira like all things sweet (fruit, yoghurt, chocolate), preferably washed down with healthy lacings of wine (white only; not terribly fond of red). Nothing more interesting than watching Zingiber lick the skin right off a green seedless Thompson grape. Fortunately, one grape a day is about his limit. Melons are good, they lick them to death. Also berries. Will eat gushy food occasionally, but prefer cooked meats, no sauces or spices. Chopped fine. Also, shells from boiled peanuts which are slowly licked to death.

Gustav likes salted fish, fish sauce, dried shrimp, and other such stinky stuff, but also has a terrible weakness for cooked meats of any kind, preferably minus any sauces or gravies. Gushy food? Hmph. Kibble? Yes. Must be freshly poured. (??)

Bandicoot likes anything edible except the sweet stuff. Cheese, meat and seafood raw or cooked or turned into kibble, the occasional rice or couscous or bread with butter, jam, or a fat-redolent sauce (no chillies or other spices) is good, in his book. No live animals or even recently-dead animals of any kind PLEEZ. Buttery pastries a BIG plus. The occasional roasted nut or seed, preferably almonds.

Madu likes fresh, raw, live animals best of all. Followed by kibble. Will occasionally condescend to eat gushy food. Will not touch raw or cooked meat of any sort except very occasionally in a fit of Being Difficult. Definitely not interested in dried seafood, smelly sauces, cat treats, or catnip. Rice crackers a big favourite.

So "mice for all" is just a marketing slogan from the giant catfood industry? Finicky little bastids.

Their cousin Pilar from Down Under:

You'll notice a similar weight, erm, issue.

PC - hope you'll soon be out dancing (or gardening or hiking or whatever else you've been forced to give up)!
