Am sitting right now watching my cat eat green beans with great relish! He also enjoys partaking of vegetable curry and baked beans. (I don't give him these, he just steals them at any opportunity).

Curry, she loves it

Coffee grounds.

Broad beans are the equivalent of cat crack in our house!

He's also partial to a little banana bread!

Twiglets. Cats love them.

When I was growing up my cat loved salt and vinegar crisps.
He was surprisingly fussy about cat foods though

Mushrooms. Sweetcorn. Cheese.

ours loves curry too smile

he eats all sorts of funny things: scones, doughnuts, spaghetti, chocolate spread sandwiches, mashed potato, naan bread, chips

he's nearly 18 but has had to have several teeth extracted!

Curry, baked beans and porridge. And I make my porridge with water, so it isn't the milk!

we had one that used to jump up and wait for the melon seeds from a honeydew melon

My old cat used to try and lick the ear wax out of my ears shock

Melon, she was obsessed and would eat chunks.

Mine won't eat human food at all. Turns his nose up at roast chicken, scoffs the Tesco own cat muck...

Our old cat loved real coffee. She would rub her face against the cup like it was catnip. Not instant coffee though!

My old boy loved marmite on toast and popcorn! His brother (still alive) is a fussy fanackapants and only eats fish. Simply no fun!

my Siamese flosses his teeth with the orange satsuma net

3 cats and the dog fight over the fairy cake cases

My cat wont eat anything now except cat food - she turns her nose up at fresh fish, chicken, duck etc and even tinned tuna. She did like Strawberry yoghurt and porridge as a kitten.

My mums cat always loved crisps and my brother's liked oranges.

Plastic bags...yum, yum, yum. Plastic packaging is good too as is a bit of yummy ribbon.

Nagasaki Fri 06-Sep-13 21:41:46

Oh yes! Plastic bags. Which I later find in a wee puddle of sick between my toes hmm

Blackcathaireverywhere Fri 06-Sep-13 21:54:48

Oh good...at least blackcat isn't the only odd cat! He loves Gap and M&S especially but not keen on the supermarket bags grin

Cat has a preference for the Next courier bags. The blue ones. Well, that's what I'm guessing they are from the vom piles...

One of my cats loves scones but they have to be fresh confused

My other cat loves pork scratchings & crisps , we often sit sharing some

Ribbon, rope, string etc. but her favourite is stealing cotton wool soaked with cleanser/toner or baby wipes from the bin and sucking them. shock

Have to be so careful to put them in a sealed bin. I dread to think what damage she could do with those chemicals!!

One of mine thinks she's a veggie. She loves vegetable soup, and boiled vegetables of any kind really, and baked potato. In fact more or less anything I leave on my plate she'll eat (and I'm a veggie). She doesn't seem that keen on cat food at all (and I can't say I blame her!).

I sometimes wonder if it's because when she was starving on the streets she had to eat anything and sort of got a taste for it then, or if that's just the way she is.
