Well I thought I'd start a light hearted thread to laugh about some of the wierd things our animals like to eat.

While my cat Sox loves Angel Food Cake, like will climb up my arm to get it. I don't know why. If I have it she hops up beside me and bats at me at first to get my attention. Anyway I don't give her a lot as it is quite fattening but I'll give her a piece after I've taken a big bite out of it until it's gone.

My Dog is a little more wierd, She will beg and beg for tomatoes. I normally give her the first small slice of it whenever I slice one up. And Oatmeal Crisp with almonds. We used to each have some for breakfast when I still lived at home. Never told anyone, didn't think to mention it until my mother brought up Penny's bizarre behaviour. She was going nuts and crying while my mom was trying to make cornflake macaroons....with Oatmeal Crisp with almonds.

So What bizarre foods do you guys find your little furry children just can't get enough of? Any idea why they like it? how it started?

Our dogs always come running for lettuce. It's pretty weird, because in dogs, lettuce is an acquired taste...the first time they taste it they spit it out. :D But it makes a great low-cal, low-protein treat for them--we started using it as a treat when Evan came down with IBD. Lettuce didn't bother his digestive tract in the least, so we just got in the habit of giving it to our dogs. :shrug:

When we get a new addition to the Pack there is always that first lettuce adventure. The veterans come running for their lettuce, with the newbie trailing behind. The veterans eat their lettuce with relish...the newbie spits it out on the floor and looks at the others like they're crazy! :laughing: But after they watch the discards being appreciated by some other dog, the newbies begin to come around to the idea of lettuce as a delicacy. :D

*Pringle chips...Messina will go to extremes to steal one out of the bowl

*Dry Ichiban noodles...both will munch on them right out of the package...no, I am not giving them to them...just if I make the mistake of opening the package, turning to put water in the pan and turn back around...two cats on the counter eating noodles :rolleyes:

*Bananas...only if it is in the skin...they won't eat them if I peel the banana...they don't eat the skin, they just tear it apart to get to the goodies inside.

*Asperagus...Seth goes nuts as soon as he smells it cooking

Vlad and Oksana love cheese! Oksana likes yogurt, and Vlad likes Red Velvet Ice-Cream. Maks will steal my lettuce from my salad too when I'm not looking. Czari likes pasta, so does Vlad and Oksana. Blueberry muffins are also a favorite or Oksana, and she also loves toast with butter.

Chico too loves a lick of choclate,some meat but otherwise sticks to cat-food.
Rocky loves butter,I let him lick it off my sandwich,hubby just about throws up watching me eat it after Rocky licked it:laughing:
He likes any kind of cake,he'll already have his mouth open when he knows I am cutting a piece,he also likes Doritos Chips.

LOL, Chico, I just had to laugh. When I butter my bread, Vlad or Oksana will lick the butter in the container. The same butter I put on my bread. And when Vlad licks the ice cream off my spoon, I finish the rest of it.:laughing: It's no big deal to me. Heck, I recently saw something on mythbusters and they showed a dogs tongue to be more hygienic than a humans tongue LOL

I had a cat who would jump up on the table and steal butternut squash off the table and leave the chicken. wierdos. lol.

Ok...here's one I found out last night!

I came into the kitchen and saw the fridge door open...I am thinking I have gone too senial to close the door now...I looked under the dining room table for some reason and Seth was sitting there (Messina watching him of course :rolleyes:) with an orange pepper in his mouth! He had munched through a top knob!

When we had our first dog, I used to have a vegetable garden. Long since replaced with a rose bed. I love cucumbers and used to grow them up fences and trellises. I would see cucumbers getting almost big enough to pick and then they'd be gone the next day. Took a while to figure out what was happening to them. While working out in the garden, Freddie walked by me, right up to a cucumber vine growing on the fence. He reached up and grabbed a nice big cucumber in his teeth and severed it off the vine. Went over to a nice shady spot and promptly ate it. :laughing: For every one cucmber I got to eat, he would eat 2 or 3 times that.

One of my :angel2: Sibes would very gently pick raspberries off the neighbours bush where the branches came through the fence :pawprint:

My Monty loved Blueberries. My dad grows them and when we would go out to the field to pick them Monty would lay in the field and eat them off the bushes. He also loved cereal...any kind. And cheese slices.
Our :angel2: cat, Hershey, used to love donuts and biscuits! In fact, I used to throw them out to feed the crows and Hershey and Monty would end up eating all the biscuits before the crows could get any!
Hershey loved anything tho, didn't matter what you were eating, she would be on your shoulder swatting at your fork. The cat we have now, Hank, he's very fussy. Rarely eats any people food.....loves tuna tho.

Whenever I eat watermellon, they'll lick away at the leftovers. They also go after any drink I leave unattended. I think their favourite is orange juice... I thought cats hate citrus?

It's true, cats do love cheese burgers. Some friends came over with some McDonalds takeout and apparently my cats stole a cheese burger, carried it to another room, ripped it open and started devouring the burger. Didn't find out until later when I was wondering what the noise was. I suspect that one of my friends tossed a cheeseburger into a separate room, but so far nobody fessed up to it. It also looks like I'm rubbing off on them because like me, they avoided the pickles!

Be careful with those burgers. I think they have onions no? Onions are very very bad for cats.

Yup, that's the lecture I gave my friends. That could also be why nobody fessed up!

My underwear and pieces of my shirts. She goes nuts for cheese and dehydrated chicken hearts. And anything plastic. Cat food. Funny for a dog who I begged to eat when she was a puppy.

The Minpins go crazy for lettuce. Somehow they just know when I'm chopping it up, and there they are staring me down for some handouts. Before you know it I'm chucking lettuce bits around my kitchen and the feeding frenzy starts...

My Dane Abby loves apples. We live in the country, and once my neighbours told me that they sat on their back deck watching Abby come onto their property and picking apples off their tree. She's run off with one and bury it in our yard...then go back and pick another. Thank goodness they LOVE her, and thought it was entertaining! :eek:

Oops I forgot....they LOVE brussels sprouts. They have acquired such a taste for them that I buy the frozen bags just for the dogs.

Too bad the kids weren't more into them... :rolleyes:
