I really had never been around cats until I met Karen. She had this DLH named Mitty (short for Mitzubishi). I don't remember what I was making, but I was peeling and deveining some shrimp at the kitchen sink, when Mitty jumps onto the kitchen counter. Mind you she has full armour. Didn't get the chance to apply the "rule". In the blink of an eye this cat snags a U-10 out of my hand! Before my shock was over, she had most of it gone.

I have to hide behind a door to get any chicken or pastrami, Latte' really likes pastrami. I have to watch my food every step of the way! She's much faster than I am.

I never heard of the "5 second rule" until a few years ago. A friend and her toddler were having Spaghetti with me one night and he dropped his fork. She asked me if "I" had the 5 second rule in my house, as if I did she would have given that fork back to her baby. After she explained it to me I got up and got that child a clean fork.

We had a cat, Mr. Frodo, who would practically go into your mouth to try to get chicken!

The only reason Latte' can't help herself to butter is...she doesn't have opposable thumbs.

there no real time limit here, i guess. 2 or 3 seconds tops, but that depends on how moist and/or washable something is. also, where it dropped and how hard or soft the food is.

lots of individual variables.

for instance something like a hard boiled egg is washable, but if it falls hard on a surface, bits of dirt might get pushed into the soft white and you get that tooth cracking crunch later on. yummy. and we ate many meals on the beach. i could probably poop out a sand castle if i wanted.

my mom used to say that we'd eaten whole animals worth of hair in our lifetimes, and we were only kids at the time.

i wonder what more"primitive" people in africa and australia think about the 5 second rule as they cook their food without removing hair, directly on the logs of the fire?

lol, or the burning dung.

Well that's a talent you don't see every day. If you ever try make sure someone has a camera!

roadfix, OMG, I LOVE that flow chart. Perfect.

I will also admit to dropping a steak on the grass in front of the grill, brushing off the grass bits, etc and slapping on the BBQ and noting it will be "mine". (Incidentally for anyone keeping track, the BBQ is nowhere near the dog's biffy )

I feel like sending out an invite to dinner now and watching everyone's faces turn a bit green! LOL

I hope everyone knows that they can click the pic to see a bigger version of the flowchart. (Old fogeys like me need the bigger version to read it.)

Cooked could be a matter of debate...

I am, generally, in the very very rare category with mine...
