1) I got a free sample of garlic chips. Yummy!
2) I got a clove of elephant garlic. And I'm growing it. :)
In case you didn't know (I didn't until today), elephant garlic is named for its size. The following photo is of the clove I brought home.

Yes, that thing is nearly as big as a potato!
Now, on to the clueless cat.
It seems that Saphira only noticed that we have rats in the house today. Or anyways, she only realized today that they look yummy. Tall One had to stop her from jumping on top of the cage, and we're still not sure that she won't get on top of it when we aren't around.
The thing with having pet rodents in this house is that they just have to get used to the fact that cats are gonna be drooling over them. And I think that Beka and Sabine know they're safe inside their cage. Anyways, they don't panic when the cats examine them closely.
This being the case, and since I had a camera in my hands anyways (to photograph the garlic) I decided to use Saphira's enthusiasm as a photo op. It's photographic evidence of Saphira's cluelessness. I mean, come on, I've had them for like two weeks. And she's only now noticed that they look like food?
|Somehow I like this, despite her being transparent.|
|I was a little concerned at this point, but not nearly as concerned as I was when it looked like Saphira was trying to jump from the kitchen table onto the cage. Fortunately, the rats didn't seem to mind her getting this close. Whew.|
|By this point I finally figured out that I should put my camera on the "kids and pets" setting, so the quality is better.|
ps. I finally figured out how to add captions to my photos. :)
