Beef: it's what's for dinner - or for playin..


Since the black kittens are scheduled for surgery today I had to make sure they made weight. They REFUSED to eat pate food, to the point where they started losing weight, so I brought down some raw food - which went over well. I bought some beef chunks for my cats for chewin on to help clean their teeth, I thought I would bring a few down to the kittens to see what they would do with them.

The smaller pieces they chewed up and ate, the bigger pieces became toys


This is very typical with kittens. Mom would bring home prey for them to practice on and get used to killing for their food. Cats play with their prey to make sure it is dead and to make sure that the prey won't hurt them. Mice bite, birds peck.. hunting can be dangerous business. It might seem cruel when you see a cat play with it's prey, but it is for their own safety.

My thoughts will be with Fiji, Brooklyn and Paris today as they go in for their surgery and then as they go up for adoption. They are really outgoing kittens, so I bet they are snapped up before the weekend is up.

  2. ...and our parents told us not to play with our food. Hmph. Another reason why being a cat is awesome!
    I hope they're snapped up soon because they're just too cute to sit at the shelter for long! Will miss them!
