Gutter Cat, Butter Cat

Izzy is a butter hound. I cannot leave butter unattended upon the kitchen table, without little fingers digging in and grabbing a gob.

Today I discovered he isn't the only butter hound in the house. Mama cat, our feral friend, also finds the stuff irresistible. I came upon her, more than once, on the kitchen table, delicately licking the butter knife and butter wrapper. I had no idea that cats were attracted to butter. A. claims it is because she is a "gutter" cat and is accustomed to eating whatever she can find. Perhaps she just has good taste.

Gutter cat has nothing to do with it. Butter is a real treat to cats. Good fat. Along with yoghurt. Either it must smell good or look good to them. All my cats loved both.

Lorraine: They have been lapping up butter, yogurt and sour cream lately. Expensive habits!
