Our cat will eat just about anything. We feed him cat food but if we are eating we will give him a taste, mainly to see if he will eat it! He loves popcorn and cheese the best. The strangest thing was him eating broccoli!

Xray: Burmese Python swallows electric blanket - Xray of a burmese python who swallowed a full electric blanket, control box and all
I don't have any pets except some fish for my daughter, but I just saw a television show on Animal Planet where they showed emergency vet cases involving pets who swallowed odd things. Among them were a dog who swallowed a river rock from it's owner's backyard, a ferret who ate almost a whole pink eraser, an iguana that swallowed about 25 cents worth of coins, and a dog who played a game of catch with his owner and the stick ended up going straight down the dog's throat. I guess pets are much like children in that you have to "pet-proof" your house instead of "baby-proof" it.

My cat goes crazy whenever we eat corn on the cob. Once we're finished with them, he'll eat off whatever he can right off the ear of corn.

Salads? I can see the tuna. My exmother in law feeds hers some high priced salmon. Her cat eats better than me sometimes!

My cat loves sweets! When my daughter was smaller, she would be in the floor playing and if she was holding a lollipop, he'd walk up and lick it! If you hold a lollipop for him, he'll lick it endlessly! He also loves to lick little bits of cake icing from your fingers, and he will tear the house apart for ice cream! I can't belive your cat eats brocolli! That is amazing!

Is there a reason for that? Some people think it is bad for them. I haven't seen it hurt him, maybe gained a few pounds, but thats it.

Our female cat will eat just about anything. I guess the oddest thing I have her seen her eat was Coconut & curry chicken. Our male cat is pickier. The weird thing (I think this is weird at least) I have seen him eat is pretzels. He loves salty things like that.

Hi there...given a chance there are many cats who actually will eat anything their owners will eat, however many human food contain ingredients that can be toxic to cats even if fed in small amounts. For example onions and garlic cause Heinz Body Anemia and is fatal for cats. Therefore, it's always best to err on the safe side to only feed cats foods and treats designed particular for them so we don't uknowingly or accidentally feed them ingredients that are poisonous. Even tuna causes enteritis in cats and many people do not know this (please see the final web link included below for full details). Here's a sample list (not complete list) of human foods which are toxic to cats: http://www.peteducation.com:80/article.cfm?cls=0&cat=1276&articleid=1029 Why Table scraps are bad for cats: http://www.peteducation.com:80/article.cfm?cls=1&cat=1399&articleid=833 Why Tuna is bad for cats: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=ApQl0TksA2nc0kXEZaiuXRkjzKIX?qid=20070111170528AAiAKat Sources: 27 year friendship with a veterinarian Animal Trainer/Behaviourist to both exotic and domestic cats

The strangest thing I have ever seen a cat eat is Bengay. My mothers cat had a thing for it for some reason. It was really strange. It never hurt him when he did it. We tried to keep it away from him just in case.

I once had a cat that ate nothing but dog food. She would not touch the cat food. Maybe in her brainn she thought she was born a dog. Really weird.

My 4 year old calico has an addiction to Pop Tarts! Well, only the crust around the edges. She really likes the frosted strawberry. If I sit down to eat one, she is on my lap, meowing and making herself look as cute as possible, so that I will give in and give her some. I also used to have a cat that would eat green salad with me--with or without dressing.

It wasn't my cat, but a friend of mine had a cat that loved lima beans. It was completely vegeterian, and would not eat meat. It would eat all vegetables, but lima beans was his favorite. I couldn't believe it the first time I saw him eat them. It was hysterical.

I had a cat that would eat anything. She would even try to eat roaches, but I guess they didn't taste good, so she just played with them. But, mostly she liked marshmallows. I have her pic on my profile. My mom's cat used to like to eat flies. Come to think of it, I had a few cats that liked to eat flies.

I was eating a burger from McDonnalds but i had to go to the loo, so i left it on the table while i went. Then when i came back one of my cats was just finishing eating it, bun and all. Both my cats eat cheese as well,
