Wacky Wednesday #32



Seriously, what is in our cat food that makes herbivores like squirrels and bunnies want to eat it? (not to mention the raccoons and possums that can't stay away from it)

We moved the cat food bowl to the top of our patio table to keep the bunnies from eating it, but that apparently does not stop Pepi The Squirrel from getting his daily dose of cat food. Oh yes that's his name. Marshall gave it to him. And no I haven't hit him with a shovel.

What exactly are they putting in this cat food that makes it so irresistible? Maybe I should try it. Maybe not.

  2. He's a cute little squirrel too! I personally wouldn't even touch cat food, so I have NO idea why he would want to eat it. And if you happen to try it out, Julie . . . PLEASE don't blog about it! ;D

  3. Cat food has been known to really save money as a meat substitute in say Chili, Lasagna, a whole host of things. Don't worry, I'll definitely have you to diner! LOL. And please no more shovel massacre's!

    Happy New Year

  4. Oh how cute is Pepi!!! There's something so cute about squirrels!

    And I'm going to go out on a limb here, but perhaps the animal kingdom that has been sprinkled down upon you is not because of the cat food but because the animals cannot resist the sweet scent of the "G" family... It's like a drug to them, like their own personal brand of heroin.

    I'm so immature that everything I say turns into a Twilight reference - help me Jules!

  5. At least Pepi is cute, unlike possums, ahem. What kind of cat food are you putting out because our cats are super picky, I think we need whatever you've got.

  6. Pepi is adorable. And so glad he didn't meet an untimely end via a shovel.

    Happy New Year's Eve! Hope you have a Twilighticious time tonight.

  7. Squirrels are evil. They have broken into my house. You have my permission to hit him with a shovel.

    And on that kinds violent note,
    Happy New Year, Julie!

  8. Hmmm. I'm not sure what's in catfood, but it's *possible* that I used to eat dog bones as a VERY small child. I'm saying no more.

  9. Seriously, you do have rodent-y problems. Maybe you should start keeping some snakes on the porch. Unless there's a mongoose stalking you too.

    "The squirrel diet varies with the seasons and the availability of plant material (such as nuts, fruits, flowers, and plant buds) that almost entirely makes up the animal's larder. Squirrels also occasionally eat bird eggs or nestlings, and may even pounce on small birds at feeders—much to the dismay of human witnesses who assume that squirrels are passive vegetarians."

  12. My friend's older brother ate cat food (once) when we were younger. He ate about a handful before he started gagging. Nasty!

    Happy New Year :o)
