Angel and Cobwebs

Angel in the sunshine
Angel loves to eat cobwebs.  She sniffs out every corner, every nook or cranny, and she eats the cobwebs.  Hey, I'm no Suzy Homemaker, but I broom and vacuum and dust regularly.  Yet she finds little cat-candy-floss once in awhile, and she takes care of them.  Even outside, I've seen her munch on spiderwebs on the front porch, and most definitely she enjoys the catio (cat patio) upstairs because the webs are many since we humans don't go there much.

Sometimes there are little bits stuck in her whiskers, but it's when the house is quiet and I'm laying in bed...and I hear the tell-tale sound of lip-smacking in a far corner.  That's the sound of Angel finding herself a treat, and she goes for it!  

Now, Chuck has no desire to eat cobwebs, and since the two of them have spent pretty much every day together since birth...kind of interesting why she has this habit and he does not.  Then again, Chuck carries hats around the house, in his mouth, to deposit them near his humans.  But Angel isn't a hat cat; she likes cobwebs.  

I have not asked the veterinarian if there is a problem with cats ingesting cobwebs; wonder if she would laugh me out of her office!  I'll have to work it into the conversation when I take everyone in for a check-up; I'm already on record for being her first client who has used an animal chiropractor.  Hey, cobweb therapy may soon be all the rage!  And you heard it hear first.

My old sis Olivia absolutely loved cobwebs! One day my mom found her snacking away on a web in the back door well. Luckily the web owner was in deep hiding, since it turns out it was a black widow. Once my mom realized that, she made the black widow leave so Olivia wouldn't get hurt. (She is mostly a trap-and-release kind of mom, and the poor spider had done nothing wrong.)
