I've had a lot of cats in my life, and none of them has ever eaten fruit, but Shiloh loves cantaloupe.  I first discovered it a week ago when I was cutting a cantaloupe for Sarah (it's always been her favorite food).  I accidentally dropped a piece of rind on the floor, and Shiloh attacked it.

At first, she just licked it.
But then she started gobbling up the rind.  I didn't think it would be good for her, so I removed it.

Fast forward to this morning.  As soon as I cut open the cantaloupe, Shiloh came running.  She meowed and chirped and reached up toward the counter, trying to hook a piece of fruit.  
I did some research and asked a vet if it was ok for her to eat it, and it turns out it's fine.  
So I cut up some small chunks for her, and she loved it.  Now I have TWO girls who are crazy about cantaloupe.
