“Mrs. Human, take them away.”

“Problem Tabby and Fluffy?”

“Definitely. If you don’t want to clear away feline barf, then remove that bowl of oranges.”

“But I like oranges.”

“You might like them Mrs. Human, but we felines do not like oranges, do we Fluffy.”

“No, definitely not Tabby, they stink and make us want to, well barf. Yuck, meow hiss.”

“No Fluffy, stop now, not on the armchair.”

“Look Fluffy how she is running.”

“Definitely Tabby, I do not want that smelly mess on my armchair just because of a few orarnges.”

“Mrs. Human, neither Fluffy nor I like oranges. They are not a feline friendly fruit.”

“But they are healthy, you can even make a fine juice out of them.”

“Forget it, we felines are quite happy with a glass of water pure, preferably from an outside source, but if there is nothing better to offer, then tap water does it as well.”

“Or from the toilet Tabby, Do not forget, the fresh water from the toilet, tastes so fresh.”

“Felines I am not prepared to join in a discussion on the benefits of toilet water. I like oranges, Mr. Human likes oranges, they are healthy and very tasty. We do not drink toilet water, but fresh clean water from the tap. We are humans.”

“And we are felines so in future do not leave your oranges laying around in our living spaces.”

“It seems that your living spaces are everywhere in my appartment.”

“Our appartment, Mrs. Human.”

“What are you doing?”

“Fluffy and I are holding our breath as we remove the offending “ick” stuff. Keep your oranges outside, away from our sensitive feline noses.”

    • It seems that cats do not like citrus fruits. If you want to keep something away from the cats, then surround it with orange or lemon peel. They do not like it, but I do not know why. Have never tried them with melon, but don’t often buy it, not so much eaten in Switzerland, just now and again.
