Re: Snuggles won't eat his quinoa salad

The problem you have in that quinoa doesn't form part of a Tiger's diet in its natural habitat.

Have you considered replacing it with a Cauliflower Vindaloo? Or an Okra Jalfrezi?

Re: Snuggles won't eat his quinoa salad

Lol, send poor Snuggles back to India, otherwise he might starve to death eating granola or macaroni, apple sauce and mince for dinner! I am also a carnivore and lived all over the world, its very hard to get a decent Steak here!

Eat the bugger .....
Alas, for poor DB's sake, I don't think it would be halal.

Perhaps it would be better to bugger it before eating?

Re: Snuggles won't eat his quinoa salad

Sorry to state the obvious, but have you tried Snuggles on croquets?

Last time a tiger tried croquet, it was a disaster.

The artist was eaten even before he'd had time to paint the screaming faces.

Re: Snuggles won't eat his quinoa salad

DB, how are you asking Snuggles to eat his Keen-Wah? Kee-Noah or Kwih-Noah won't work. It's all in the pronunciation, you know!

It's not Keen-Wah, its keen-wah you need to be keen, you know. You wouldn't want Snuggles to think of a Ken-like human stretched out like a bubble gum while eating, would you? That would spoil the atmosphere

So, in order to help my Uncle out of a tight spot, we've recently acquired a Bengal tiger. He's a handsome fellow, but he's gone right off his food for the last three weeks. We don't like bringing live game into the house (the last herd of impala we brought home made a terrible mess of the Persian rug) so we usually feed him quinoa salad, spelt muffins and kale, but recently he won't even eat that.

I feel so terribly sad, looking at him staring dolefully at his healthy bowl of vegan fare, so does anyone have any advice?

Thanking you in advance.

DB
These tigers are quite versatile feeders, and at times when they are feeling particularly peckish, they have been known to have a little nibble at human flesh. Indeed some become quite partial to it, after overcoming the initial distaste, and go on to regard it as quite a delicacy. So, instead of trying to force special salads and the like upon it, why not let it loose in the village, so it can select a few tasty morsels for itself.

He needs a friend.

You do know that it's against the law to only have one cat in Switzerland?!!

Exactly. In the case of tigers, you're supposed to have a whole ambush.
