Did you know that felines cannot taste sweet food? They’re missing the gene that encodes a taste receptor called T1R2. Actually, the gene is found in their genomes but foobared. Pretty good argument against intelligent design.
Here’s the article.
cats easily become diabetic if feed too much carbohydrates
Hey! I don’t call you gross when you lick your lollypop!
That’s funny… my cat never liked sweets.
Perhaps that lollypop is lawn-flavored.
While watching the video, I looked over at my own cat who was, at that moment, licking his own ass
@ 1:The lollipop is probably lime flavoured which wouldn’t come over as sweet, hence the li(c)king?
My cat has a small basket with some lollypops in it as toys. He paws them out of the basket (quite challenging) and hockeys with the lollypops, and carries them upstairs. He breaks the lollypops, tears open the packaging, and leaves the sugary pieces all over the hallway for me to find :-P
I haven’t caught him eating any of it, though.
I can has diabeetus?
Does anyone know what breed of cat that is?
