Eating Flowers

With Valentine's Day right around the bend, it's important to keep in mind that cats and dogs love to eat flowers. No one knows why, since flowers taste like crap, and they're much better when experienced through other senses, such as looking, smelling, and touching. Hell, even listening to flowers is better, although not likely to yield a whole lot.
When tomorrow roles around, your significant other, best friend, or 5-year-long stalker will give you a dozen roses. And you'll accept them graciously with maybe "I love you, too," or "thank you, you're so kind," or "you're supposed to be 100 yards from me at all times." Then you'll put these severed plant limbs in a vase filled with water so that they die a slow and prolonged death during which you'll enjoy the decoration. But you know what you wont do? You wont bite into the them, and start chomping down like a hungry hyena while your Valentine watches in horror.

  2. I really can not blame that kittie kat right there! Given the chance, I would eat a pink flower as well! I love pink stuff! That kittie kat could not blame me for eating a pink flower as well! Because obviously that kittie kat might know by some way, that I love pink stuff!
    No blame anywhere! That is the way that I like it! At least that is the way that this pink-loving gal sees it!
