Mine just tried to paw a pear out of my hand. I let her taste it when I was finished (no pip ingestion smile). She was licking away to her hearts content until I took it away... (I do not want to be cleaning up cat diarrhoea!). It was a bad idea in hindsight.. i won't be able to eat a pear in peace again

My sister's cat loves popcorn. As soon as you open a bag, she's there!

He's a bugger for carbs

Salt and vinegar crisps and she loves bananas

Most of my cats have loved olives.

TeddyCat used to go wild for olive pits, he'd paw constantly at my arm until I'd finished and grab the pit and spend ages licking every single last bit off. But never full olives, just the stone. Miss that little weirdo

We had a cat who loved crystallised ginger, especially in chocolate. And thorntons toffee. (Which was hysterical) Dog that adored oranges and apple peel.

Lime cheesecake. I had assumed cats didn't like all citrus til then!

Chicken tikka masala , obsessively. Difficult when had people round for rake out. They felt under pressure.

Chippy chips

Broccoli. Spaghetti (but not other pasta).

One of my dear departeds used to go really weirdly mad for ear wax. She would even attempt to lick it straight from your ear.

first cat used to steal mushrooms and eat them

second cat went crazy if you had melon in the house, he also ate cabbage and he really liked spicy things...but not rice. If you gave him left overs he'd leave a clean pile of rice that he had sooked all the sauce from.
He also once ate all the chillies from a plant I was growing.

idiotcat likes beans and peas in all forms....he used to steal broad beans from the plants and eat them and the pods. Also bean juice....baked beans, or the water from chick peas/beans.
and he drinks coffee.
His sister is completely normal in her eating habits.

One of mine is a crazy pea thief.

Current cat is highly conservative in his tastes ( not even cheese or tuna, although roast chicken and crispy duck are acceptable). Previous dustbin cat liked olives, cucumber, cauliflower, broccoli, baked beans, spaghetti hoops, cabbage (not sprouts, sensible kitty), melon, stuffing, curry, pizza. Pretty much anything she could lay her thieving paws on. She was tiny, under 2Kg, surprisingly!

joangray38 Tue 29-Nov-16 19:40:41

Any type of cake, plain biscuits, egg, hard boiled or runny he doesn't care. Likes a slurp of tea as he goes past. Recognises m&s packaging will come running if he sees anything aide by them and wants a taste.

Our cat loves sweetcorn and Marmite (not together!). Obviously have to ration the sweetcorn or explosive diarrhoea is the result! When anyone opens a tin of the stuff,she is instantly there,weaving around their legs.

HeyMicky Tue 29-Nov-16 19:49:46

Blue cheese
Veggie curry

He's an idiot. A stinky idiot

Rice pudding and strawberry ice cream - both home made.

Chip shop chips.


whojamaflip Tue 29-Nov-16 20:02:11

Palomb - our old cat was a crazy pea thief too! Regularly found opened pods in the veggie patch where she'd been feasting confused she would have mugged you for them grin lost her 2 years ago and miss her like crazy sad

DearMrDilkington Tue 29-Nov-16 20:04:21

My cat loves bread, especially cheese sandwicheshmm
