A Cat Favorite Comfort Is A Bunch Of Strawberries
Remus is a ten-year-old tabby cat with a strange love with fruit. When spring finally arrived this year, Carly Cox noticed that her eager cat was digging through the groceries more often than normal. Cox took some time to realize that Remus was attracted by a bunch of strawberries.
“I asked my sister (a veterinarian) if these were Safe for him to have,” Cox said to The Dodo. “She said yes, and when I gave them to him he was happy!” Before falling in love with strawberries, Remus enjoyed using his toys and play tunnels. Remus, on the other hand, was fascinated by the bright red fruit when he found it.
Due to their high amount of sugar, strawberries shouldn’t be a regular part of a cat’s diet, but Remus doesn’t seem to be affected. Remus usually cuddles and plays with the strawberries, according to Cox. Instead of trying to eat them, “he rubs them all over his face and tosses them about like toys.”
Due to the fact that cats can’t taste sweet things and have trouble seeing red, strawberries may be a relative of catnip and have a similar psychological effect on cats. Remus’ love with strawberries—and nothing else—is strange, but the cat simply cannot get enough of them.
Cox said, “When he gets tired, he’ll sleep with the strawberries as well. “I don’t know why he likes them so much, but I’m happy I can provide him joy with something so easy!”
