This is a very special weekend for my fiancée and me: we’re getting kittens! After a couple of months with an empty nest, we’ve agreed to take on a pair of baby cats from a farm, and we couldn’t be more excited. Our last two cats, Nugget and Cricket, couldn’t have been more perfect and quirky in the best of ways, and both had unique food preferences.
Nugget loved instant ramen noodles, and if you dangled one in front of his face, he would happily eat it little by little as you lowered it into his mouth. It was like a cartoon, and it was hilarious. (Don’t worry, this was not something we gave him often.) Cricket, on the other hand, loved sweets and all things bready or carb-filled. I only discovered this shortly after I got her and found an entire loaf of bread lying on the floor with bite marks going through the packaging. If we had doughnuts, she’d come galloping over like a tiny horse to try to guilt us into offering her a morsel.
So, cat people: Beyond regular old cat treats, do any of your furry companions have a weird food obsession that they’ll wrestle you over?
