Recently, we noticed that Lady had something curious in her mouth that we couldn’t immediately identify. It was full of round objects that we’d never seen her eat before. Upon further examination, we saw that she’d been collecting palm nuts to enjoy. (Don’t worry. They’re perfectly edible.)
The nuts were lying all around the yard, scattered in piles. So it’s not like she’d been snacking on one or two; rather, she’d been eating them by the dozens. The palm nuts can be found in the male Asian yard, but she has to reach quite high for some of them. We’ve found plenty of palm nuts in her poo, so clearly she has a taste for them and made herself quite the buffet for the morning.
