GUEST,Ely BS: Crazy Things your Pets Eat (83* d) RE: BS: Crazy Things your Pets Eat 19 Feb 03

Ootek (dog #1)--LOVED celery; also liked peanuts & would make a complete ass of himself over popcorn

White Diamond (dog #2)--grapes (in small quantities), cherries, berries of all descriptions, tomatoes, peanuts, popcorn; used to love peanut butter until she found out I was using it to give her allergy pills (peanut butter was very entertaining since it would stick to her tongue, which is about four feet long, and she would sit there making silly faces and trying to lick it off).

Razz (cat)--chocolate, melted ice cream; she would drink iced tea right from your glass if you weren't watchful

I worked with a pony once that would attack if she saw you with a popsicle.

I work for a veterinarian and we see all sorts of "dietary indiscretions". 1) a Great Dane that ate a small stuffed animal. 2) a pit bull puppy that ate a dishrag. 3) a cat that ate a large twist-tie and a bunch of mylar gift ribbons. 4) a golden retriever that ate a fishing bobble. 5) a Rottweiler that ate a big rubber gasket and a bunch of oil-soaked kitty litter from the floor of his owner's garage. 6) another pit bull pup that found a piece of barbecued chicken and ate so much she couldn't digest it (ipecac to the rescue!). 7) a cat that ate a piece of rubber sole from a flip-flop.

One of my coworkers has a cat that has a string-eating obsession that has earned her one major exploratory surgery and lots of afternoons spent sedated while the vet unwound string from around her tongue (the cat is on the antidepressant amitriptilyne now and doing much better). Incidentally, if your cat is sick and you see string hanging out of one end or the other, DON'T PULL--I've seen plenty of cats with strings running all the way through them and you can bunch up and slice their intestines.
