Anybodys cat do that. When she grabbed a first one it looked like an experiment. But finding her with her head stuck in a pack of crisps left unattended... No words. And they were onion flavour...

My favourite cat did - cheese and onion, but only if I held it so he could lick it daintily grin

She actually eats them like a dragon. Im afraid they can be unhealthy...

My cat will come running if she hears me opening a crisp packet. She's not interested in the crisps, she's waiting for me to finish the packet and fold it into a triangle so she can play fetch with it! grin

I hate to go all Dog House on you, but please don't make a habit of feeding your cat crisps.

One of ours used to love crisps - would come running at the sound of a packet being opened. DH once cruelly fed her a super hot chilli crisp, but even that didn't put her off for long. She wasn't picky about flavours, either. She also liked McDs, and would eat a burger complete with bun (but not the gherkin)

It is probably self evident that she was a cat of our irresponsible carefree pre-DC life grinblush - she grew up along with us when DC1 arrived and decided he was an adorable if very slow kitten.

Ours comes running if there is a crisp bag rattle, tries to grab them off you too. I have no idea how they discovered crisps are nice in the first place.

My cat loves crisps, she tries to nick them off your plate if she sees them.

My old old cat will lick the inside of a crisp packet if he gets hold of it. He also used to have a taste for chilli con carne, curry and similar spicy foods (he would pinch a bit when our attention was elsewhere)

He's nearly 18, so his longterm health hasn't been radically affected by his weird tastes, but I won't be encouraging my younger cat to follow the same dietary habits!

Nigel Killmouski loves himself some BBQ crisps. He's also fond of teriyaki chicken and the odd bit of cantaloupe. The other two Killmouskis (Sophie and Wee Simon) have no interest in people food...

My DM's old cat used to love crisps. I'd often find them watching the telly whilst sharing a packet of cheese and onion. grin
