Just look at this kitten in a banana-split costume, eating a banana

Just look at it.

Halloween Cute Banana Cat (via JWZ)



  1. You used to be a predator and meat eater goddarnit, don’t go for the banana and water-melon. Do you think wildcats, cougars, lions and other cats would ever give a fruit as much as a second look? No!

    1. REFUTED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJhlguXpjWg

      Also my kitteh, and my former kitteh, both loved avocado. I mean were just nuts for it. Plus, the domestic cats generally like green honeydew type melons.

  2. Bananas area good source of potassium.  I can only assume that kittens dressed up as bananas are also a good source of potassium.

    1.  Humm…
      House cats are highly reactive to water, so the “high potassium content cat hypothesis”  might be right.

    1.  Mine too, he also likes apple juice.  My previous cat also loved to chew on cantaloupe rinds.

      1. I had a roommate with a cat who would nom strawberries, but only if you held them up by the green bits so he could gum at them. It was weird. He liked the flavour, but not the texture.

  3. As I was just looking at it, my cat came and made the universal cat sign for “covering up poo.”

    1.  “meme that will never die”

      That would make it a zombmeme, or maybe a memepire.

  4. I’ve stopped trying to predict what cats will and won’t like.  I had a cat that liked broccoli.  One of my current cats decided she liked graham crackers. A friend’s cat used to wait for manna from heaven in the form of cheerios dropped by their toddler.

    1. Not to mention their grass habit… I mean lawn, not pot. Though catnip is another data point.

      Being an obligate carnivore, and being poorly adapted to digest plant matter, doesn’t mean one can’t have a taste for it anyway. Gods know humans eat all sorts of things with zero nutritional value.

    2. Things my cat likes that confused me: macaroni and cheese (makes sense), cheese its,  macaroni in general (Plain, with sauce, with oil), lentils, popcorn (they play with it first). Cats are weird.

  5. I cringe at the thought of what comes out the other end after a cat eats a banana. 

    1. It’s a longhair.  Whatever comes out the other end is going to stick to the fur and have to be washed off.
