because people speak English
I found out accidently cats do not like orange peel. My cats are always convinced that whatever I am eating is ten times better than what ever is in their bowl. I could buy them expensive dry kitty food or the moist canned food but they will express persistant interest in what I am eating; oranges, bananas, a bowl of chili, crackers, etc.
I showed Bubba the orange peel. His reaction was of disgust and revulsion. Citrus peel caused a real repulsed look, much blinking of eyes, and grimacing. Then, Bubba looked at me as if to say, "How can you eat something like that?" or "I trusted you what the heck!" or "I always knew you didn't play with a full deck".
(Polite way of saying "YOU ARE CRAZY!!")
If I lay a banana peel cross his back he will walk around like his back is broken or like he is trying to walk under it or fall over on his side like he has been crippled by its weight. But the banana peel follows him around. I will probably go to that hot bad place (hell) for tormenting my poor kitties.
I used to have a all black cat who would wake up from a sound sleep if she heard the can opener and coming running in the kitchen. Imagine the disappointment when she found out it was green beans? Again, "How can you eat something like that?" was the look she gave me. Mama Kitty could really telegraph her thoughts to me. She was really digusted. Mama Kitty tried to use mind control but didn't have it quite perfected.
(You will open me a can of tuna fish.)
