Last night I poured myself a late-night snack of Grape-Nuts cereal and Butters, my MOST finicky eater, wandered over to see what I was doing. When I turned back from returning the milk to the fridge, Butters had sat down and was feasting on the cereal! I thought he was just sipping the milk at first, but no-cruncha cruncha crunch-mm mm good!! What a nut. He followed me out of the room and was quite persistent about wanting more!! Anyone else's "kids" enjoy surprising foods?
hhahahah the grape nuts kid....well my Tweety loves a bit of egg ..each morning I boil 2 eggs, mostly for me, but when she hears the cracking of the shells, she runs up miaowing, I mash up the egg and put some in a little dish, she only eats about 4 bites but its the ritual more than anything.She also like a taste of ice cream ..
Jade never begged for food until one day, she too seemed interested in my yogurt so when I was done, gave her a little taste off the spoon. I don't like to make that a habit, though. It's that "99% fat free" stuff so aspartame used to sweeten and not even good for US.
oh dear-i'm not sure what mine is sweetened with!! i eat chobani-i better look!! whew-no artificial sweeteners or anything-all good!! i'd feel terrible if i was giving my bunny junk!! (even though she loves cheetos...)
I personally can't understand why man or beast would like grape nuts, since I've tried them myself. Supposed to be healthy though.
Anyway, I used to be quite regular about letting Catalina lick yogurt lids which she really enjoyed, but my sister is concerned the cat might develop diabetes with all the sugar in yogurt. Catalina even liked plain yogurt. She likes a bit of cheese or cheese food, and a piece of corn when offered. She seems interested in refried beans but I don't give her any. She acts interested in pears, but when she sniffs the juice of it up close, she decides she doesn't want it. She enjoys tuna water and chicken water, but I recently found out there's salt in there so she shouldn't have too much I guess.
I know I am late to the party, but Stardust got her lips on some black beans. She loved them, but I don't let her eat them. She likes a little chicken once in awhile, again she just gets a taste. She would eat anything though. Once she ate some lettuce, she can't have liked it.
Hi Margy, I hear you with the heat. It is now 90* in my home. It's normal for cats to not want to eat as much in this type of heat. Cats can take the heat better than we can so don't worry about cooling her down. She'll either find shade or come in your air conditioning if you have it? I'm sure you have water bowls all around. Jade is affected also and shedding like crazy. But yesterday she was way up in the top of this storage type tent we have and you'd think it would be boiling up there, but there she was! I gave her a good brushing last night to help her out. I guess I do that everyday though, haha.
well I noticed the other day Tweety looking at me or rather gazing at me , I had a treat , a handful of regular potato chips , so I popped one on the floor ,well she munched it up..the dh then said "I knew'(meaning him) ' she liked chips and she likes guacamole too' well I really had a chunner at him, as I am sure cats aren't really supposed to eat guacamole or chips for that matter
oh-I know!! Spirit loves cheesy poofs-the crunchy ones! I break off a tiny piece for her and she happily crunches away. Bob only likes the cheesy stuff on the outside. I know th poofs are NOT approved kitty chow and they get this only 1x in a blue moon.
Our cat, Marley, loved cereal. We had to learn to lock it up in the cabinet every night, because sometimes we didn't, and the next morning Mr. Dave came to the kitchen for breakfast and caught Marley completely inside the cereal box with just his tail sticking out--and the sound of amplified crunching coming from inside the box!
Swampy old cat grew up without cat food (it wasn't available where she was) and so likes a lot of different human foods. Peanut butter, eggs, cheese, and dairy products are among her favorites, as well as fish (Swampy doesn't usually have fish at home, but he gives her a little taste sometimes).
Swampy's young cat grew up in a shelter, and he really doesn't want human food at all. However, he loves grass.
Before I discovered that both my cat and I have problems with grains (mine is gluten specifically, but she is allergic to all grains), Akira would literally try to snatch a piece of muffin out of my hands. This is really funny, because she doesn't do this with the foods that are actually good for us. If I'm having steak, she doesn't act like this. She will beg, but she will behave herself. But, she sure "had to" have some of that muffin I was eating before I found out that neither one of us should be eating that stuff.
My Ed-A-Puss loves anything with cheese! I like to make microwave popcorn and then sprinkle grated parmesan cheese on it and he would follow me off a cliff for that stuff! He also loves Cheetos and anything else with that bright orange fake-looking cheese stuff on it, and he'd sell his grandmother for a potato chip. Of course, even though we indulge him we don't give him but a little tiny bite, but it satisfies him and makes him think he got to eat whatever it was he wanted. None of our other cats go crazy for "People Food", just him. My hubby and I think it's because we raised Ed on a bottle from the tender age of one week (he is now 7 years old), we're the only parents he has ever known, and we truly don't think that he sees himself as a cat! We're pretty sure that he thinks (and so do we, frankly) that he's just a little short kid in a hairy suit who doesn't speak! LOL!
