Tis the Season
It's Babba-lope season. No, I'm not referring to an antelope type creature. Babba is the matriarch of my feline family, and lope is cantaloupe. We bought our first cantaloupe of the season yesterday and before we even cut it, Babba was in the kitchen mewing like a kitten. A kitten trying desperately to get her fix, that is. She has loved melon from day one, and it's funny to watch her dance around hoping to garner a few bites of the sweet orange fruit. The vet raised his eyebrows and gave me the oddest look when I asked him if it was ok. He'd never heard of a cat liking cantaloupe or fruit of any kind. Welcome to our world.
