Butterscotch and Clover were each given a parsley plant for Christmas.
I've been carefully tending the plants for them ever since,
occasionally snipping some sprigs for them. Last week during floor
time, I brought out one of the pots and sat on the floor near them for
a few minutes and let them attack. They very much enjoyed the fresh
parsley, but judging by Butterscotch's behavior, he's never encountered
growing food before. He kept taking a bite and jerking his head to try
to get me to let go of the end of his sprig - only I wasn't holding it,
it was still rooted. Clover quietly grazed without the tug of war,
though I don't know whether that is because he figured out he couldn't
carry it off or just didn't care as long as it was within easy reach.
