It fell off the barbie and he is very interested in it! will it make him sick or can I let him have it?

I wouldn't-just in case. Can he have a cat treat instead?

He probably wouldn't actually eat it but it likely will be pretty fatty (sorry) and with lots of spices and salt. I wouldn't.

Oh - and it's a skip and a jump from picking up dropped things to yowling for scraps under the table. I wouldn't for that reason alone.

Well if you are happy with him eating the equivalent of 10 KFCs all at once. A single crisp is the equivalent to a Maccie D's burger for a cat.

Sparkling Cat will not eat anything except for Felix As Good as it Looks. She won't lick a plate, or have a blob of cream or ice cream. We offered her fresh fish and raw chicken but she won't have it. She doesn't even eat the mice or birds she brings us. No idea why, i thought cats were natural scavengers. Confused

I suspect she likes watching you running around trying to please her, Sparkling.

Yes and paying £4.88 for 12 pouches cozie. I am always on the lookout for where it's on offer.

We rescued the sausage, he seemed more interesting in flicking it around than eating it. He got some Dreamies instead!

That's what I meant by not actually eating it. It would be a satisfying weight and shape to 'hunt'. Good substitution by the Dreamies though.
