Friday's Thotful Spot

In the time honored tradition of Pooh's Thotful Spot and modern-day philosophers such as SNL's Jack Handy, allow me to induct a new Piper Patter feature - the Thotful Spot, where we examine deep modern quandaries.

First up: Have you ever wondered...Why don't they make mouse flavored cat food? Most of the flavors available really aren't part of a cat's natural diet. How many kitties could manage to land themselves sea food, unleass they followed a fisherman around like in cartoons? And chicken? Although I'm confident a cat would mau(no pun intended) down on a chicken, he wouldn't be able to catch one unless it was very small. 9Lives should start selling some new flavors: Field Mouse, Sparrow, and Moth, to name a few. Exotic flavors could include Chipmunk, Young Rabbit, and - just for my own Einstein - Yarn (or perhaps Power Cord Sheath, as he's now demolished Cornfuscius' laptop cord as well). Some cats would enjoy Houseplant, fresh-baked Birthday Cake (yeah, I kept that one to myself and nobody knew the difference once I'd frosted it!), and the ever-popular Shower Water.

Geez. Who's in charge of product development in the pet food industry, anyhow?

Happy Friday! God knows I'm ecstatic about it...

Let's see, my cats like peas, mac-n-cheese and canalope. But if hunting, my cats can get small birds, lizards and snakes as well.

butter, cheese, potato chips, pastry, the soft center of doughnuts...but I did have a farm cat once who loved to eat creamed corn and gravy, and his daughter-- who was very tiny--decided to have a fettish for biting the heads of rats.
