    The cat likes to eat... WHAT??

    So.

    DH has started feeding the cat dried prunes.

    And she likes them.

    ??

    He says that ever since he started feeding her prunes, she has become more affectionate.

    ????

    Does anybody know if prunes are harmful for a kitty?

    Prunes might help get rid of hair balls!

    You might want to check with a vet on that one!

    My mom had a cat that ate bananas and I had a cat that loved gin & tonics. We had to watch her when we had parties. Never heard of prunes, though.

    Kola likes cashews, chips, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cheese.

    She actually chased my husband around the kitchen to get a bite of his PB & J sandwich the other day.
    She likes the juice from canned tuna and canned salmon. She doesn't like shrimp or kitty treats.

    I found this list..........

    think you will find prunes are ok for cats and dogs - can be used as a natural remedy to help if they have problems with the anal glands but would check to see the recommended amount for your cat as that depends on their weight

    Good idea cause I know of some fruits, etc. that you shouldn't feed them.

    We've got one that used to like tomatoes when she was younger. She'll also steal any bread off the table if we leave it there, even in a bag.

    Funny what pets will eat/drink. My greyhound will try to get your black coffee. We can't leave it unattended on the coffee table. The last thing I need is greyhound jazzed up on caffeine!

    Tink waits till I share my coffee with her in the morning...she will even woof me if she thinks I forgot to give her some...
    The other day she started to stand up against my leg waiting for her coffee...I told her it was too hot, and she sat down to wait...crazy dog. All she gets is my finger dipped into my black coffee a couple of times and she licks it off.

    We had a cat years ago who loved vegetables. She would eat peas, green beans, corn, carrots, just about any vegetable. And her favorite of all was iceberg lettuce! She loved it. We even tested her once.....held out a piece of meat and a piece of lettuce. Yep, she took the lettuce! Weirdest cat I ever had.

    I also had a dog who liked raw carrots and dewberries.

    When I was a child, we had a toy poodle who would ignore the apples that had fallen off the tree, instead he'd stand on his hind legs and walk under the tree, inspecting every hanging apple until he found one suitable. Then he'd pick it and eat it.

    I would check with the vet about the fruit, just to be safe. I know dogs can't have grapes, and I'm wondering if grapes are related to prunes - they're both pitted fruit, sort of. Lol.

    We had a cat that would roll around on the floor if there was a green olive on it. Then she would chew on the celery leaves when I'd bring in the groceries. I thought maybe catnip and celery were similar? Another cat would eat mushrooms from casseroles. My DDhated mushrooms so she would feed them to him. He once knocked a Cheezit out of my hand so it would fall on the floor so he could have it. He also would eat animal crackers, but only the cat shaped ones! Too funny!

    Cute stories. One of our cats loved the "innards" from cantaloupe. She just couldn't wait for us to put it down for her. It never seemed to have any adverse effects. She didn't like cantaloupe pieces, just the part with the seeds. Go figure.

    I would check with the vet too, I know with dogs some things that can be extremely harmful to them is if they eat grapes or anything with garlic on it.
    My grandmother God rest her soul used to feed her cat a can of crab meat everyday and then was shocked to find out the cat had diabetes, needless to say the Vet was every alarmed to find out what she was feeding the cat, lol We lived in a fishing community and a friend of the family had brought over a big garbage bag full of crab legs, she boiled them and fed them to the cat he was mortified.

    My beloved Ziggy went crazy for cantaloupe...he could smell one coming in from the grocery store. He's over the rainbow bridge now but I still have his ashes and want them spread with me when I'm gone.

    i have a tabby that we have to leave some corn on the cob for and also if i boil it he wants the corn water. his mom loved corn too and peas but the peas were only when she was pregnant with him.she also liked donuts. our junior loved ice cubes to play with and wouldn't stay out of our tea so we had to use covered cups if we wanted to drink any. the other day the tabby decided he likes tortillas. so guess it is strange what they will decide to eat sometime,lol

    Years ago I had a female cat that loved powdered donuts and glazed donuts, would eat them through a plastic bag. I had a male at the same time that loved pumpkin pie.
    One of the cats I have now, Herbie, orange and white, use to eat biscuits, when we had leftovers, would eat through the baggie.
    Years ago my first toy poodle would eat anything my oldest Daughter would eat, she always saved her a tiny piece. She loved to eat plain ice cubes also.

    Last night Katie (our spoiled rotten, thinks she's a dog cat) came running when my dh opened a bag of sour cream and onion chips. She even sat up an begged. I couldn't stop laughing. I sure wish I had a picture.
    Happy Quilting.

    We have one cat who eats avocados and loves cheese. He only gets little nibbles of them now and then, but he always checks out any green veggies to see if they might be avocados.
