Behold the humble rambutan,
an oddly hairy fruit. It has a fairly thick skin. The flesh of the fruit is much like a green grape with a large seed in the middle.
So I wake up this morning and make my way to the living room and WTF… there are rambutan scattered all over the floor. My wife, who flunked Cat 101, had left a bowl of about a dozen of them on the coffee table overnight.
Walking in next is my seven month old orange tabby. He takes a seat in the middle of the room and surveys his work. Yep, everything is right where he left it. We will be finding rotting fruit around the house for months.
As Z, my cat, continues to defend our home from these alien invaders the rest of the morning, I come to a startling realization. My cat is a genius.
Genius at work
Allow me to introduce my new line of totally “green” cat toys: The Rambutan. I know, I’ll have to come up with a catchier name. But, work with me here. When the cat is done playing with the rambutan you can still eat the fruit thanks to the thick skin. And the skin and seed are biodegradable and can be composted.
Look for my Kickstarter coming soon. And adopt a cat. You don’t know what you’re missing. I do. I’m still missing three rambutan.
