My Cat is an Omnivore.

Every time we open our back door, my kitty-boo Elliott runs outside. We would be afraid of losing her, except that she is naturally prone to eating plants, and as soon as she gets two steps out the door she gets distracted by the plants around our porch and starts chomping on them.

I find this hilarious, except for the fact that plants don't agree with Elliott's tummy, and I get to clean up after her every time she ralphs. (Which is often.)

So yesterday I went to the grocery store and brought home three paper bags worth. Two of them were on the floor, and I was unloading the third on the counter. I heard a rustling and saw that Elliott had stuck her head in one of the bags. No surprise there, she also likes crawling inside paper bags.


So I paid no attention and went back to unloading groceries, until I finished that bag and reached down for the one she has her head in.

At the top of the bag was a head of green-leaf lettuce. And Elliott was munching away. There was a section where you could tell her little kitty teeth had been. I was laughing my head off as I stuck the lettuce in the fridge.

I thought cats were supposed to be carnivorous.

Do your pets like weird food?


  1. LOL! My cats like grass too. And one time, I dropped a piece of lettuce on the kitchen floor while making a salad, and my youngest kitty dashed up, grabbed the lettuce, and ran away to eat it. Like it was a prized treat he was afraid I wasn't going to let him have!

  2. You should try cat grass! (ex: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/pic/article.cfm?aid=373)
