I love to eat. I eat all the time. And seeing as though eating is one of the…5 activities that make up my daily life, (including napping, licking, sitting, and playing with shiny/dangling objects), I figured that its something I should know more about.
There is something in my inner cat that craves the rich, juicy, and satisfying taste of food that is not necessarily so good for me…like red meat. Oh how I love red meat! However, as it turns out other things are better for my little kitty system than all that stuff that I love the most. And turns out that those good-for-me things aren’t too bad to eat either. Here are a few nutritious things that I like:
And you know what else is great? Here at the Center, we have a great garden started so that we can get even more fresh veggies—both for me and people who live around here. Some students who come to school here planted some big boy tomatoes and basil plants in the back of our building that were donated to us (thank you!) and so I am so excited about the Italian salads that should be poppin’ up soon!
And there is a LOT of gardening going on all around me. Across the street, Dr. Hanna has taken the whole side yard of his dental office property and last weekend planted a HUGE garden. It looks great and he is going to donate some of the good stuff for us to give out here at the Center! It is called “Dr. Hanna’s Victory Garden for those in Need”. YAY! I am excited.
The only question now…where is the ranch dressing? Oh wait…I guess I need light ranch!
Nutrition is important for everyone—not just for kitties…so here are some resources for the human types!
