Do your cats a Favor

My one cat LOVES Nori!!!!! Whats nori? Its dried and baked seaweed sheets. Its used in sushi among other things. You can get ten sheets in one package for about 2 bucks at your local store in the asian isle area. My cat begs for this stuff! I just tear off a little piece and hold it. He comes up and chomps on it.

sush, we give our cats nori. they love it. btw, give them a chopstick or 2 on the kitchen floor, and watch them go nuts tapping it around (until it ends up under the stove or fridge).

also, try to find dried bonito shavings. look for it in asian markets, not in pet stores. it's not that expensive, but pet stores try to rip you off. it's the stuff seen on "iron chef - tos". they put it in boiling water to make a fish stock of sorts.

My cat is the most picky eater in the whole wide world. She'll turn her nose up at bacon and tunafish (she'll drink the left over water from the can though) but, she loves butter and tomato soup. She loves left over milk from the cereal bowls but, won't touch it if it's right out of the fridg. She loves feta but, won't touch any other cheese. She won't drink fresh water. She'll only drink out of mud puddles or water from the seats of plastic chairs. I'll try nori some day but, chances are she'll just look at it and walk away. She's a very silly kitty.

Being a dog-mom, cats are a bit of a mystery to me. Like, for example why one of the Siamese kitties on my street just walked across my driveway carrying a large sock.

I'll have to try this. We have nori around the house all the time to feed the tropical fish. Never thought to give it to the cats though.
