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).

Our first cat used to love curry - both vindaloo and madras made from Nazirs pastes. She also loved black cherry yoghurt, back in the days when it was almost purple colour with artificial colourings.

Our current cat won't eat anything like bread, pasta etc, but for a while we had a kitten who loved bread, cooked and uncooked pasta, crisps, all carbohydrates. However, he was totally stupid, and never learned his name, would come when the other cat was called.

My cat once ate a pack of foam alphabet bath toys, he had to have surgery to take them back out, the vet had never seen anything like it before. He's fine now luckily, but it was very frightening at the time, and foam bath toys are now banned in our home!

Dried apricots...mental for them. I gave him one to prove a point he wouldn't like it after bothering me for one. That was a mistake.

Popcorn, even.

Wasacat number three eats toast, crisps, corn on the cob, chips, pizza, curry, pasta, yoghurt, piocorn. Basically anything I'm eating. He swipes at it on its way from the plate to my mouth. Today he tried to snaffle chocolate digestives. Bad.

Scrambled eggs, raw eggs (I let them lick it off the floor if I drop one, even though it makes me gag to watch them), Greek yoghurt, and YES, curry!! So interesting to see others' kitties eat curry too!

Deep heat. Yes you are reading correctly. Didn't matter who it was on, old cat used to lick it. Weird cat. She was also partial to wotsits. Toenails. Tinned tuna, she could smell a tin once the opener broke through tin and she would come running. Bread, but strangely wouldn't eat a tuna sandwich. Lemon shower gel. Christmas trees. Brown paper would be shredded. Oh and ginger biscuits. The cat had a friend that would occasionally come in and have a nose around. We had to make sure if we were having a lager that cat couldn't get to it. Caught it more than once trying to have a drink.

oh and frogs horrible yet funny seeing back legs hanging out of mouth with front bit down throat going croak.(the frog, but cat's throat was moving in time)

Long departed mog loved chocolate-especially choc coated ginger. And she and dog used to stalk me for thorntons toffee. the dog loved oranges-we had to peel two-one for us one for her-and apple peel. my sister had a cat who ate daffodil flowers and would drool and suck on t shirt and jumper armpits.

Oh, and washing up sponges. I've had to stop using them as cat thinks they are prey and must be hunted and devoured. Odd thing is, my sister has his brother and he has the same thing.

Moths and spiders. Horrid seeing the legs sticking out of his gob! Toast, cereal, pasta, pizza - I keep trying to tell him he's supposed to be a true carnivore but I don't think he's read the books...

Ooh, mine likes butterflies too - he's been catching them all summer long.

I took them of her as I don't know if they would so any harm.

Mine loves anything woolly or fleecy...she's chewed her way through many a jumper, scarf and blanket. And if she gets near the sock drawer it's like all her Christmases have come at once!

Our cat loves cheese and particularly feta.

Today I discovered, whilst having a cheeky snack with him almost sitting on my chest, that he is partial to salted caramel ice cream.

curlyclaz13 Fri 06-Sep-13 23:56:46

cat no longer with us went mad for peas he would climb up to eat them out the pan (after the hob was off)
mini cat loves houmous.
Another long gone cat liked jam tarts and malteasers, he used to come running if you had them grin
yy to ear wax, several cats liked it confused

Oh and she loves to lick the plate after I've had toast but doesn't want the toast itself!

pinkyredrose Fri 06-Sep-13 23:52:16

Mine loves mash too and the cheese from the edge of the pizza. Ice-cream is a huge hit too.

stealthsquiggle Fri 06-Sep-13 23:48:54

One of ours loved tinned green beans.

Another was into crisps. She could hear a crisp packet being opened from miles away grin

Mashed potato.

But she's horrified by the smell of strawberry yoghurt.

thecatneuterer mine goes memtal for quorn. Any quorn. Loves quorn ham, bacon, pieces etc. Definitely can't tell it is fake meat! He may be a greedy, indiscriminate little sod though grin

endoftherainbow Fri 06-Sep-13 23:20:56

peanut butter on toast or pizza crusts

thecatneuterer Fri 06-Sep-13 23:05:20

catmint That's amazing. I've never found anything that will eat quorn. Even the foxes turn their noses up at it. They're not fooled for a second that it's real meat.
