The Furries and The King of Fruits

It was the durian season a little while back.  It's called the "King of Fruits" here and you either love it or hate it.  We've heard of very interesting and comical descriptions of this fruit by foreigners because of it's very pungent smell.  You can read a little more about durians here.
This is the flesh of the durian (after having to pry open the thorny husk)

Whisky LOVES durians!

Yummyyy...this durian is gooey....Uh Daddy?  Don't squish the durian!
Felix takes a sniff.  Think it's a "hate at first sniff" with him

This is Manny, who was boarding with us when we bought the durian

Ohhhhhh!  Me LIKEY!!!!!

I'll turn on my "cute face"....maybe the human will bring the fruit nearer.....

Don't be deceived by the pictures.  Whisky only got to eat a small bite of the durian.  Felix and Manny only got to smell it.  Heehee.

That fruit is very interesting. It must not smell too bad since the dog and the cats are interested in it.
So we see that you have rabbits, so we need some pictures of them sometime. Take care and have a great day.

Mum would love to have a taste of the durian but thinks she would need to hold her nose!

I would love to know what it tastes like!! The Admiral would turn up her nose leather at it though. She said to tell Boomie that she had her pill this morning. xxxoooo

I don't know what it is...but those pictures are darn tasty!

I've never heard of these before! I'm so surprised that a kitty would be interested in fruit. Whisky looks so cute getting his unique treat.

Thanks for the tips on food for Annie. It's so weird how she wants nothing to do with stinkiest, yummiest food I could find for kitties.

The pictures of everyone's reactions are so funny, especialy Manny's! My two go mad whenever I chop onions, seems they like the strong smells (I never let them eat any though!!) =^..^=

Adorable pictures ! I don't know Durian at all, at least I think so it's funny that Whisky loves fruits, but Arthur also loves tomatoe sauce !

Oh I heard about durian when I was small and I was always interested in it. It's super tasty but super stinky! I chuckled when I saw the photos of Manny saying "Me likey!!!" and then turning "cute face." So adorable :-)

Mama and Papa went to a Vietnamese restaurant last night and brought home a durian shake pearl drink. We sniffed the container :) and it stinks.
