ANIMAL EATING A WATERMELON: A HUNGRY CAT

February 21st, 2014 by The Watermelon Guy

A couple years ago, I featured a fluffy feline named Cooper who loved watermelon. Turns out, Cooper isn’t the only cat with good taste in snacks. The cat below starts his meal where most of us would – at the top of the watermelon wedge – but soon turns his attention to the rind.

Like we’ve discussed before, that’s actually a smart move, because the watermelon’s rind contains a higher concentration of nutrients like fiber, potassium and citrulline than the red fleshy part of the watermelon. The main reason for this perk is because the rind has less water and is more dense. And yes, it’s not as sweet, but if you’re a hungry, orange cat, that’s not a big deal.
