Most cats tend to fall on the finicky side when it comes to food, unlike their uncouth dog counterparts who tend to scarf down anything in sight. It’s this picky behavior that keeps many cats from getting sick, or say barfing up grass leaves from the yard the way my dog does.

He never got sick from it (but soon after we learned he had diabetes, which was why he was so ravenous all the time).
