Well, Maybe a Cookie

OK, it appears that cats lack the gene to taste sugar. [Washington Post, registration required, if you don't know about it's not like I didn't tell you.] That's right, house cats, lions and cheetahs (Oh! My!) all lack the gene, or, at least 247 "letters" of it.

Now, one of our cats eats roses -- I would have thought because they were sweat, but apparently not.
