Dh has got cheese on toast (with hendersons relish) for lunch. Our own little Attila is sat beside him demanding little titbits. He also waits (not patiently) to lick the butter off his crumpet plate at breakfast. He went bonkers at the smoked salmon and cream cheese. Little tubs.

I have a very weird cat. She never wants anything other than cat food. She won't touch any ham/cheese/chicken etc. Never interested in what we are eating at all.

EggyCat hovers around my dd's high chair when she smells dairylea cheese strips as she knows she will get given some....my 19 month old takes great delight in dropping them on cat's head saying "There you go cat" grin

Like Sparkling, my cats are weird and won't eat anything other than plastic and cat food. hmmjust bought them a pouch of beef fillets in gravy for their Christmas dinner but I doubt they'll eat it.

My cat would eat anything until I treated her to some cat soup. Now she turns her furry nose up at everything except cat soup.

The only thing mine really eyes up is crispy duck. The previous one was also keen, but she was after the cucumber ( and anything else she could lay her thieving paws on).

It's weird isn't it Toddler. She was a rescue and was about 4 years old when we got her. I wonder if she had never been offered any 'human' food as a kitten.

That cat soup is very strange. Liquidy lumps and vv expensive for very little.

Fudge yoghurt. Obviously

Stable cat is currently on vegetable soup confused dipping a furry paw in to pick it off. We daren't take it off her for fear of losing a limb

We bought him some posh cat food, the type with whole pilchards in jelly. <vom> he licked the jelly off.

Bloody cats. Torn into a packet of Dreamies. New flavour. Pretty much all gone. There's going to be diarrhoea isn't there?! fshock

This is going down v well tonight. He's actually pushing the bowl around to see if there's more

Sparkling, yes mine are both rescues and were used for breeding. They'd never lived in a home until they were rescued aged 5. They never ever ask for food either. If the food bowl is empty they don't complain either. I suspect like you they'd never had experience of human food and were used to just having food at regular times and never thought to make a fuss. When one of them has been nil by mouth for surgery the other has had too as well by default. Not a problem at all.

Quorn roast. You know, the fungal protein that roughly resembles a Bernard Matthews turkey roll? That.

We gave her a tiny piece to stop her hassling us, and she wolfed it down and stepped up the pestering. Which says good things about Quorn. Not sure what it says about the cat.

Our little furry ball of hate just ate a frozen rat off the driveway.

eddiemairswife Tue 20-Dec-16 17:22:37

Mine ate her breakfast this morning and promptly sicked it up on the stairs. Then I found her chewing the slice of lime from last night's gin and tonic (mine not hers). This afternoon I caught her sneaking off with a packet of cheddar she had stolen from today's shopping. I still have to clear up the sick!

Puffinitee Tue 20-Dec-16 18:02:38

PuffinCat goes nuts for sliced turkey or chicken, yowling, jumping up and stealing it if she could she's too dim. Dreamies have nothing on that!

Toddlerteaplease Tue 20-Dec-16 18:06:05

My sister used to work in a bakery and would bring home bags of sliced turkey for the cat. He adored it.

JennyHolzersGhost Tue 20-Dec-16 18:06:47

Marmite on toast confused

Also hell knows why but someone bought her a packet of dried whitebait. They smell godawful but she is in love with them.

YesItsMeIDontCare Tue 20-Dec-16 18:09:52

Leroy falls in to weird category then. Unless it's a bit of chicken or beef still warm and carved specially for him directly of the joint.

He's got some treats from P@H which stink to high heaven... he's on the mooch for those at the moment.

Broken11Girl Tue 20-Dec-16 19:15:39

Madam BrokenCat doesn't usually scrounge human food. She loves tuna, of course. Less typically she loves salt and vinegar crisps, sweet chilli sauce, yoghurt and curry hmm

Then I found her chewing the slice of lime from last night's gin and tonic (mine not hers). Mine sniffs my wine like she's a connoisseur grin

bigkidsdidit Tue 20-Dec-16 19:17:43

Grated cheese. She is OBSESSED with it

Toots will try anything and everything...except cat food hmm

I've had to resort to adding hot water to her food so it smells more enticing and is a bit more gravy-ish. She eats it then

Mine was trying to snaffle popcorn earlier
