Re: What a week!


Pam: I had a cat several years ago that loved anything green: peas,
broccoli, brussel sprouts but her most favorite food was boxed blueberry
muffin mix. If she ever got into the pantry she would hunt the mix out
and use her claws/teeth until she ripped the packaging enough to spill
it out and eat it. It was wierd...
