cat loves greek olives

August 29th, 2007, 12:59 PM
My little bundle of joy, Gilligan, goes nuts for greek olives. I was making a Greek salad for dinner and he started crying and clawing at my leg as I was cutting the olives for the salad. I said "Ok here you go" and dropped a whole but pitted olive on the floor. He went nuts. Once he finished it he rolled on the floor like it was catnip. He becomes euphoric and crazy. Now when ever he smells the olives, he's gotta have one or two or three! Anyone else ever experienced this? :confused: Yes, our cats can be weird but heck, that's why I love mine:cat:

I don't see them on the toxic list, and imagine they are fine, I wouldn't feed the pits though... as a lot of the things on the list are pits/seeds.

Mine go bananas for wild blueberries (you know the little frozen ones).

One of my cats, Smitty, HAS to have some olive juice if I am eating them. He goes all nuts, which is unlike him, and will do anything to get some.

The high amount of salt would be a concern but heck, bliss is more important !

Come on though ~ you can't tease us dog-people this way... we want kitty-porn pictures :D
