Subject: Funny story 'bout cashew ....
In reply to: Alex A 's message, "Re: I've never heard that cashews are a 'no-no' - unless ..." on 17:43:40 06/15/09 Mon

Molly Kule, my first flyer (a gift from the GS, delivered by Becall, one of my barnyard cats), loved to steal a taste of whatever I was eating. Molly was a 'free range' flyer - had run of my house. One evening, I had friends join me for dinner - I made an oriental dish, shrimp and cashew, with cabbage, waterchestnuts, in a light 'toasted seseme seed and ginger' Asian style dressing, on rice. At the dinner table, Molly decided to join me, jumping from the ceiling molding to the table, then to my shoulder. I figured I'd give her a cashew - but first I'd 'suck' the dressing off the nut, to prevent Molly from getting perhaps a taste-bud shock from the ginger in the dressing. As I carefully worked on the cashew, Molly jumped from my shoulder to the table, grabbed a shrimp from my plate, and fled like a little bandit! I swallowed the cashew, laughing along with my guests at Molly's decision to grab the shrimp. I did get up to see where she'd go, with the shrimp. Molly was on top of the bookcase, happily eating the shrimp. When she had all she wanted, she took the remaining piece, and 'hid' it in the corner of the bookcase top shelf. So, when it comes to deciding what to feed a flyer - well, sometimes, they decide for themselves! (Still, I recommend caution in making things that are not in the 'natural' diet available to flyers ...
