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.
