  1. Eeeek. Cats are not supposed to eat raisins, they are on the list of bad foods for cats. No mas, ok? Sorry, mi amigo.

  2. Doan' worree. I yam AOK por 24 hours. No bad seempton. Goo' appetide. Happy cad.

  3. Hermano, if someone tells me I am fad I stand on their toes and say I am jus' well-built.
    Oil is good. Very good.

  4. Señor Fluffy? That's not right.

    Storbie, you're eating better than me. Ask the Wooman to make the pork belly-lettuce wraps again, for your hit of chlorophyll!

  5. Storbie, have you heard of a cat food called Sojo's? It's a dehydrated complete cat food, made with high quality, *real* ingredients, made here in Minneapolis. You can add anything you like to it to make it more interesting, or you can eat it as is. I work at a fancy pet food boutique here and would be happy to send you some samples to try. You seem like a cat of sophisticated, discriminating tastes who would appreciate this food, plus the Wooman will like that you have to add water :)

  6. Ay yi yi! Both raisins and shallots are on the "toxic to cats" list, but the Wooman already knows this. That's why she took the bowl away, hermano. She lorbs you. Now Cheecken, well, you grab as much of that as you can!

  7. Uh oh, I don't want to be near your litter box today!

  8. Well, actually, The Wooman didn't know about cats and raisins. Only about the onion.

    All I can say is he is fine, 36 hours later. No bad litter box experience, no throwing up, no lethargy (all associated - on the Web - with raisin ingestion).

    Most of the literature seems to talk about dogs. Perhaps cats are different. Also, there is absolutely no hard evidence for this - so I am a tad sceptical, but was no less concerned by the revelation.

    Perhaps the white balsamic vinegar in which the raisins poached neutralized whatever the bad thing is. And no one knows what the bad thing is.

    But I am sorry I fed him raisins, anyway...He LOVED them.

  9. Grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in cats. However, some cats are apparently not affected. I wouldn't push my luck with them!

  10. green beans in a shallot-free dressing might be just the thing for 'Storby.. followed by cantaloupe- my family of cats dined on these bits and I've read that big cats eat melons in the wild too.

  11. i have looked for this chicken dish on "the food" with no luck. will you share the ingredients? i have a cooked chix breast to use up.

  12. Just found your blog and have to say eet ees forgheen' hilariouz. I may never speak proper Eegnligh again.
