Melon-nawm, melon-nawm, melon-nawm

You didn't know a kitteh would even eat a melon slice, did you?

Wayle, we've all learned something today. [Head tilt]

You too, Jean F.

I bet he puked all over the place a few hours later. Or at least my kitty would have

awww! too cute! i love the curled paw around the melon!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 07:54 AM

If a kitty can eat a melon slice, then I don't see why they can't keep the litter INSIDE the litter box! hehehe! That was precious, thanks for sharing!

HA! My cat used to eat potato peels and pull corn cobs out of the garbage. She almost made it outside with it, too, but the sliding door wasn't open wide enough. She kept making a run at it, though. "Booioioinnnggg!" At least, I think that's the sound she made when she bounced off the door...

Too Many Maureens

I love it when the kitteh is all "I don't eat droppingks, thank you" at the end.

I could watch this for hours!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 07:56 AM

Yummy, meow-lon!

As a child, I had a cat that LOVED corn on the cob!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 07:56 AM

my grandma's cat loved cantelope. cute wittle kitteh!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 07:57 AM

dang! that little kitteh is just going to town on that melon slice.
but i'm with Carrie, i have a bad feeling that kitteh is going to "lose" all that melon he ate , one way or another....

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 07:57 AM

So adorable!! I had a cat once who liked melon, but he was nowhere near this cute.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 07:58 AM

I can't tell if that's just the rind or actually melon.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 07:59 AM

I bet he didn't puke, I bet she turned into a mutant tho.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:00 AM

If you look on YouTube, note that this is not merely a "melon," but a "Melone."

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:08 AM

He's just doing it for the camera

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:08 AM

According to Chuck Jones' autobiography, "Chuck
Amuck", he had a cat that loved grapefruit.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:09 AM

My mom used to have a cat that loved Kiwi fruit. Peeled of course...

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:10 AM

I love it when he closes his eyes, he's all "MMMMM, deeeleeescious melon, soooo juicy and sweeeet."

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:15 AM

Ahn, the little one chewin'. I betcha his thinking: "Oh, hell yerse. C'mere you...[grips melon tighter]"

His whisker pads are bunched up around his eyes. Little man's going DEEP.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:19 AM

is not real! is anime!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:19 AM

Mebbe I can buy a melone and get a free B&W kitteh with eet?
This is very Qte!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:25 AM

My cat loves chips and salsa. I turn my back for a second and his head is in the salsa jar slurping away.

He jumped up on the kitchen counter this morning and ran off with the turkey slice I was putting on my lunch.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:29 AM

My mother had a black cat that loved cantaloupe. She would actually beg for melon if she smelled a freshly cut slice.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:31 AM

One of my 6-month old kittens looooves cantaloupe and eats it the same way. Both of our cats also love tofu, cucumbers, mango, and noodles. they are weirdos.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:32 AM

Our cat will lunge up onto the kitchen counter if we are making salad, and eat any lettuce he can grab. He also likes fresh cilantro.

my cat is a blob
 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:33 AM

I thought it was going to turn into a cats in racks at one point.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:34 AM

My 17 1/2 year old kitty LOVES melon.

But she can't have it too cold, and can't have a lot of it, because her delicate stomach makes her do something not at all cute. :)

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:35 AM

My kitties like to eat lettuce, and they will fight over it. So, melon isn't that weird. :)

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:41 AM

Why do cats like melon??? I mean, biologically, why? They're not near-omnivores the way dogs are, and melon is so...melon.
But yeah, my mom's cat liked cantaloupe, too.
And this vid is awfully cute.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:41 AM

this makes me ache for my old kitty Dwight...he LOOVVVEDDD cantalope & watermelon. he would knock the cantalope off the counter & demand that I slice some up for him. It was the best to feed him little bits & have him lick it off while purriing up a storm.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:47 AM

Yeah, why do cats like melon? I've heard they don't have much of a sweet tooth. My Sparky loooooves cantaloupe and will dig melon rinds out of the trash.

I once had a cat who would beg whenever I had a sandwich. I'd offer her the turkey and the cheese, but she was never interested - she wanted the bread. Weird.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:48 AM

See, I'm always amazed at cats that love to eat things other than their own food. My friend's cat eats watermelon. My two cats, however, eats nothing but cat food.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:51 AM

I had a cat many years ago that really liked strawberries.
I noticed the ladies in this video were speaking Russian or some other slavic languauge. When I lived in Ukraine one family I stayed with had a cat that was 14 years old. In all of his life he never ate cat food. There was no cat food in the USSR so the people there would just feed their pets scraps from their table. This family actually gave their cat a serving when they got their own serving of food. The cat even ate borscht!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:51 AM

I have a cat that loves people food. Pasta, beer, green beans, meat (of course), cheese (of course), red grapefruit juice, bread, chips, big fan of Cheez-Its. So far the only thing he won't eat are pickles, but if they're on a cheeseburger, he'll lick the ketchup off first. Nahm, nahm, nahm.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:54 AM

Teeth...not made for...melon biting...EHN!

My cats don't do fruit, but they are obsessed with bread and any bread product to the point where I had to buy a breadbox.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 08:54 AM

Love the delicate paw on melon placement.

My mom had a cat the went nuts for celery. She wouln't eat is so much as treat it like catnip and get loopy from it.

Way Cool Groovy Chick

We used to have a cat who would come running when we sliced melon, like most come when you open a can of tuna. (She'd some running for tuna too....)

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:13 AM

My cat likes to beg turkey from us when we go to Jimmy Johns. We really haven't tried any fruits or veggies because we don't know whats safe for him. Though I did have to wrestle the lid from my ben and jerry's strawberry cheesecake ice cream from Midnight...

Er, EFLTeacher? They're speaking Japanese, which is definitely not a Slavic language!

Love teh little white paw holding on for the chompage!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:15 AM

I had a kitty who loved cantelope and another who loved asparagus. My current kitty drinks "Mango Tango" juice! Cats are deep.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:16 AM

P.S. Those folks are speaking Russian! Ask me how I know.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:18 AM

My beloved belated kitteh would roll a WHOLE MELON off the top of the fridge. It would break open all over the floor, and she would have a mgmmmgmgmgmmmmmmmm eat the whole thing. No sickage afterward. She was also known to eat her way into one if there wasn't a way to bust it open. Avocados made her insane also.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:20 AM

hmmm. PP, I dont think that sounds like japanese, it sounds like a russian accent or something more in that region. course i dont speak Japanese and maybe you do?
That is one yummy kittie cat though. so cute!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:22 AM

ok Mamalana -
i'll bite.
how do you know ?

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:23 AM

For chapeaunoir,

A little corn on the cob kitteh action!


 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:23 AM

Sister-in-law's cat was very interested in my orange juice. I said that cats don't like orange juice, and offered the cat some on my finger. She licked it off. So I poured some into a dish, and she drank it all. Didn't want any more later, though.

I also read that cats don't have taste buds for sweetness, so don't know what they're getting out of it. Maybe just likes melon texture? Have also seen pix of cats going for green beans, and two of ours like some greenleaf when we make tacos.

My late little girl would lick Cheez-it White Cheddar residue off my fingers.... I really miss her.

O.M.G. I'm so going home over lunch to see if my cats will eat cantaloupe.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:35 AM

My dad baited a woodchuck trap with watermelon, this summer. We went out the next morning to see if we'd caught the stupid fat bugger that kept eating the garden and found one very frustrated kitty surrounded by melon rinds. My cats like meat and cheese (and one used to eat potato chips) and a friend's cats are obsessed with cheese balls, but I'd never before seen a cat go after watermelon!!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:37 AM

My youngest cat - Ollie - LOVES raspberry jam, especially if it's black raspberry!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:38 AM

Also, I had to do a double-take on this video because except for the fact that this cat has a little more white on him/her, it looks EXACTLY like my cat did when she was young!

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:38 AM

Kiddeh must really like the texture, mebbe? Cats lack the taste receptors for sweet. Doesn't mean that they ain't Swwweeeet, though.
My kiddeh Grendel has a great affinity for green olives (and pizza crust, but bread is a little more understandable) and practically attacks my fingers when they smell like green olive juice.

 |  Sep 14, 2007 at 09:39 AM

So very cute! He is over the moon with that piece of juicy melon.

p.s. So not Japanese, PP!
