OMG yes. Every morning my breakfast banana is stalked.  Nico hides behind the milk, sticks her head out then runs to behind the cereal, scuttles behind the paper and before I know it has her head buried in oaty crisps and banana.  After attacking that she moves onto the banana skin but I usually try to take it off her coz I thought it might be bad for her.  

It would be great if it was ok for her coz she loves them  :thumbsup:

I should try and video her.  The other morning James came up behind her and caught her in the act and she actually sauntered off with a look that said "nothing to see here, move along"  as soon as he'd gone and was back, she ran so fast she stood on her own foot and nearly fell over  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:  It's really difficult to be annoyed with something that uncoordinated.

iiiirrrrriiiiiiiinnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaa  Where are you?

Unsure of the skins as they are sprayed and dipped on the plantations.

ok ok, no need to shout!  :loud 
 :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Banana skins are fine, just give them a good scrub and if you are worried about the chemicals get organic ones, they are not alot more expensive than regular ones  :biggrin:

Nico sounds hilarious, Liz  :rofl: :rofl:
Digby likes bananas but not crazy about them. He prefers to eat them from my hand too, they are too messy to hold with his own his highness foot  :ignore: :rofl: :rofl:

She will be pleased when I let her have the skin tomorrow  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

She is funny. Always brightens the day  :rofl: :rofl:  Except this morning. I left her unsupervised with the morning paper and by the time I went to read it there was a big hole right in the middle  :grumble: :grumble:  I held it up to show James and Nico stuck her head through the hole  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:  He was not amused, she chewed through a story on Liverpool. She is now banned from the breakfast table  :cry2: :cry2:

That is correct Bob  :thumbsup: Also, green bananas are good for making stools harder, so for diarrhoea and overripe bananas are good for constipation as they make the stools softer  :loo

I am a new owner, gave zack some banana today and to my surprise he scoffed it! Even growled when I took it out his reach! He doesn't touch dried banana though!
