I want one of each AND the hot wings (must be getting hungry)! Okay, I've got to ask - how can anyone eat lamb? I don't eat it, don't cook it (veal too) but DH loves lamb and he can only get it if we go out! As a matter of fact, I would be a vegetarian (again) if it weren't for him! grrrr

I have never eaten lamb never not even once. 

Now an Itty story.  Y'all know that I love this cat of mine, he was a runt and has a terribally deformed tail which ziggy zags up over his back.  When we got him the big cats didn't want to play with him.  DD#2 had a beanie baby lamb that he loved and played with, garring it.  Well as he grew he er um began to love his lamb in other ways.  We had to put the lamb away.  I am happy to report that he has not formed any other unnatural attachment to any other stuffed amimal.  My DH was certain that he would have a stuffed animal fetish. cheeky

Oh that is a good one Letty! It was probably just a "phase" that Itty was going through. wink

Bwahahahahahaha! Years ago when I was a teen the family had a dog that well...was too attached to men's legs devil

I have tried lamb a couple of times, but it doesn't work well for me at all.

Well I just have never seen a cat do such a thing, he was nurtured so he was just a teenager I guess. surprise

I don't eat veal either, but I do enjoy lamb -- broil a couple of chops, make some mashed potatoes ... mMmMm ...

The baby lamb there is hungry (obviously).  When I was an exchange student living in New Zealand, I spent a long weekend on a sheep farm, and bottle feeding baby lambs like him was among my duties.  That is one super patient kitty to put up with all that sucking and kicking -- cameraguy should put down the camera and fetch a bottle. devil

We have a farm by us, and this is the time of year when all the babies are out....I love it!  Baby lambs really do frolick, and kick up their heels.  They are adorable.  The baby calves hang out together, usually with one adult babysitter close by. I call it Cow Kindergarten.  They are too cute as well.

There is another farm not too far from us where they raise the calves that will become veal.  I can't stand it.  It breaks my heart and turns my stomach just driving by.  I cannot eat lamb, or especially veal.  Ever since I read Black Beauty when I was about 8, I've been unable to move away from the idea that animals have a human-like conscience.  Jeanne, I know what you mean about eating meat.  I have to pretend my hamburger was an old cow that lived a long, happy life and died peacefully one night.
