Cat mentality [Nov. 4th, 2009|07:11 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!

I made chicken stock last night, and when it was finished I got the bits of chicken off the carcasses thinking they'd make a tasty cat dinner tonight. Apparently not, noses have been turned up. Stoopid animals.

My grandma's cats (even the outdoor feral ones, sometimes) always turn their noses up at cooked meat. Maybe because cats in the wild eat raw meat? They can be picky little bastards, though, that's for sure. I'm not really sure what goes into chicken stock, but if there was garlic or onion in it, maybe they were smelling that and avoiding it? Alliums of all kinds are poisonous to kitties.

Ah, that might be it, it had onions in. Replaced with nasty cat meat now.

Dawson-cat doesn't turn his nose up at cooked meat. He does, however turn his nose up at the pickings off the stock chicken carcass. I think it's because all the chickeny goodness has gone into the liquid.

My lot quite like raw chicken, ADORE the smell of cooking chicken, but unless I give it to them right then and there (warm, not hot obv), they won't eat cooked chicken once it's cold.

Cats, eh?
