I wonder if the world looks different to cats because their pupils are not round like ours?

I've found the same sort of thing in sticks of butter!

When questioned, my cats always said they never touched the butter. It was more of a religious thing, like Jeebus on toast. :)

That's messed up. Hope it didn't choke on it.

As long as it could swallow it I suppose it will be OK. A bit of extra fiber in the diet.

One time, when we had a dog, one of the cats brought in a live mouse and released it in the kitchen. The dog almost literally inhaled the mouse and gulped it down without chewing.
