We aren't the only ones. Cats and dogs love cows milk. I've also heard of dogs nurse'n kittens before, never happened here.

Bizarre for me would probably be sushi or some fast food. Sushi, I really like it but it is still bizarre for us and where we live.

Fast food, had the McRib once.

Humans are the only species to continue to drink milk after being weaned and are the only species that choose to drink that milk from another species. Cats and dogs only drink cow's milk when humans give it to them (always gives them diarrhea, btw). Cats and dogs in the wild don't drink milk. Humans also sometimes choose not to breastfeed their infants. Mother cat's don't put their kittens on supplemental milk (formula). If a baby animal looses it's mother it will suck on another animal for survival...and when weaned that will stop.
...just sayin'

I love to debate, notice that? Cats and dogs hang around the milk barn, we never had to give it to them...we had to keep them away! BUT you are right, we are the only ones to continue to drink milk. We also are the only ones to cook our food. No wonder aliens don't like to stay here long. We are a different "species" in so many ways, but that is another subject for another time.

See ya, Molly

Sure, and why not finish it off with a nice warm cup of the most expensive coffee in the world...Kopi Luwak* (made from digested beans in cat feces). It was actually mentioned in the movie, "Bucket List" by Morgan Freeman to Jack Nicholson who was boasting about his "extra delicious prized coffee"...funny movie!

Oh, is everyone enjoying their breakfast this morning?

*No, I've never had this...no way!
