Obligate Carnivore

Cats are obligate carnivores. Unlike many other mammals, members of the Felidae family must eat meat, and for all intents and purposes, only meat. Plant matter makes them sick, and usually a cat eats plants because they’re not feeling well and are deliberately trying to make themselves puke.

I keep trying to explain this to Annie, but she just won’t listen. It’s like she doesn’t even speak English.

I don’t even think she’s always trying to barf up a hairball or anything, I think she just likes the taste. But of course you know who has to it clean up. You’d think at her age she’d at least clean up after herself, but she’s kinda spoiled like that.
