We were sitting on the floor having cheese, crackers and some other nibbles for dinner last night. Valeria was very interested and sniffing around the edges of the table. I offered her a small piece of the cauliflower I was eating. She took one sniff at it, JUMPED sideways, and ran off to hide in the front room.
Yes, cauliflower is cat poison.
She eventually came back so I offered her a little pate. That was not poison, and smelled very interesting. But, was not food so she didn’t actually eat it.
