Cats, Watermelons & the Not-So-Famous Harlem Globetrotter

When Glogirly came home from the grocery store with a watermelon today, she couldn't resist sharing one of her all-time favorite posts from 2016, featuring the lesser known Harlem Globetrotter–

WAFFLES:  *uuuummmph* Man, this thing is heavy. How do those Harlem Globetrotter guys do it?

KATIE:  Waffles, what on earth are you doing???

WAFFLES:  This isn't regulation size, Boss. It's too big. I don't think I can shoot hoops with it.

KATIE: Shoot hoops??? Seriously? Waffles, that's a watermelon. Not a basketball. Oh and... you're a CAT.

WAFFLES:  Wait! I've almost got it. Just have to dribble–

KATIE:  Waffles, the only thing you're capable of dribbling is food onto your chin.

WAFFLES:  He shoots! He scores!

WAFFLES:  And the crowd goes WILD! *AAAAAAAHHHH!*

WAFFLES:  Hey! Where'd the crowd go?

About Today's Photos
Today's pics are from Waffles' first watermelon encounter back when we lived at the Townhouse. Glogirly had just returned home from the market and her arms were so overloaded with grocery bags, she had to set the watermelon down on the floor before she could make it to the kitchen.

We'd heard that some cats like watermelon...but not quite like this.

Can Cats Eat Watermelon?
According to PetMD, cats can eat watermelon. But, and this is a big but... the seeds must be removed. They contain compounds that can be very harmful to cats. The rinds aren't really recommended either. It's important to remember that cats are obligate carnivores and therefore incapable of digesting some types of food, in particular, plant matter.

So a meal of watermelon is not a good idea. But a little bite should be just fine.
