Does anyone else have a cat that will eat absolutely anything?

My previous cat also did the 'trying to get food from your hand en route to your mouth' thing, my son thought it was hilarious.
She used to love peas, maltesers, any flavour crisps, custard, mash, any meal we had with meat in it.

Current boy cat can be in the garden and hear the plastic lid being 'cracked' off a carton of cream in the kitchen and scoots in at such high speed he skids to a halt.
He's also been known to try and get a bone off the boxer dog hmm

My older sister who I don't see much, told me at christmas 'you should never ever give cats chicken' ...errrrr, fat old cat is 18 and again we pretty much let her eat what she fancies so I'm not going to stop now.!

Slugs, bread and pasties...

I have two fussy Maine Coons and one "scoffs everything" mog. She will eat anything. She has a particular penchant for icing. She also eats curry, chilli, vegetables, etc.

All the cats like Marmite though. What's that about?

yep my half siamese will not only eat anything that looks remotely edible he will try to snatch it out of your hands to get to it

Evil Cat will eat anything...with the exception of actual cat food. She will only eat either Asda's own brand or Sainsbury's own brand (which leads me to believe they are actually from the same factory!)

Human food however, loves crisps - the tangier the better. She can hear a crisp packet rustle from 1000 feet. Popcorn, not worth the hassle of eating it as she takes it from your hand as you're putting it in your mouth. She has also just discovered left-over apple and peach baby porridge hmm

Blimey - I wish mine would eat anything. Mine are insanely fussy - and I pander to their fussiness. It's tragic, really.

We had a cat that thought she was human. Ate cheese, raisins, loved scones especially, pasta bolognaise, cheesy pasta, mini cheddars, luckily she had a cast-iron constitution; she lived to 23!

I have a dog cat too. He's my little shadow and eats everything and anything!

Yes, she is such a little piggy.

She really likes crisps and bread, but she will eat anything.

One of my childhood cats would eat curry, I swear a rogon josh had his eyes brimming with tears. He was rather portly.

Yes, her absolute favourite is mushrooms.

Last night he was trying to steal green beans and yogurt from dc, and he goes crazy for Marmite(!) hmm

He has a sensitive stomach so I generally discourage him and send him back to his bowl of expensive cat biscuits.

I swear he thinks he's either a dog or a human...
