Are cats edible?

Unfortunately it turns out that cat tails are chip shaped enough to at least attempt to eat them - we very nearly started the day with an early breakfast of fur. It was swiftly removed from the field of play, and actual food was served at lunchtime as normal.

Today was roast dinner, with parsnip, butternut squash and sweet potato on Hannah's menu. I prepared far too much, so there'll be leftovers on the menu in the week. All the items on offer seemed popular, although she pulled a particularly impressive face at the first taste of parsnip. The squash and sweet potato were softer than I first realised, and they quickly turned into mush when she picked them up, so I'm not sure how successful they were at this stage.

We had the first evidence that food has been going down today, too - definite signs of digested banana, if you know what I mean. Good job we were warned about what it would look like, else we'd have thought she'd got worms :o)

Not been able to get any full bibs yet, so we're still producing a rather large amount of washing. Today saw the first complete change, as the butternut squash had, as the name suggests, squashed itself into everything. We'd seen those bibs in Asda a couple of months back, but they don't seem to have any now. If you're reading this and know where we can get some, please leave a comment, I'm not sure how much more the washer can stand!

I got a couple of arms in bibs from Ikea yesterday, seem pretty good and of course very cheap.
Not sure half term is the best time to go there though...
