I’m off again to the Rugby Scrum, otherwise known as the Indian consulate. To end the day, we must again have a cat, this one nomming some candy.
The affinity of this cat for a lollipop (we Americans call them “suckers”) is mysterious to me, because, as you all should know, cats have no sweet receptors and so can’t taste sugar. Maybe there’s something else in the sweet that attracts Patton:
The YouTube notes:
My cat Patton loves to lick and gnaw on lollipops. He will eat an entire sucker in less than 5 minutes!
I don’t know what breed this is, but it looks Siamese-y. WARNING: Can we please do without comments saying, “Eating that is bad for the cat”? Perhaps it’s true, but I have no control over what Patton’s staff feeds its master.
