Makes you wonder what's in the stuff!

The other day I made some Chicken flavored Ramen for lunch. After I'd eaten all I wanted there was still some broth left so I put it down for the cats. Five cats walked by the bowl, sniffed the stuff and kept walking. After a while Gabby started trying to cough up a hairball up on the cable box - I pulled her down and, while I was trying to put her on the floor, she wound up on the bed and (sorry this is gross) let fly into the bowl I'd put down. A bit later, the OTHER roommie let my dog, Zoe, and put her in E's bathroom while she put HER dog out (our dogs don't like each other, but that's another post) I figured Zoe might drink the soup - I mean, she was a stray at one point and a "garbage eater" and she eats cat turds sometimes - she wouldn't touch the stuff. If 5 cats and a dog that eats "tootsie rolls" won't touch the stuff - what does that say for humans eating the stuff?

Hi dark4eyes, What did you put in that broth? are your stomach aright? maybe there is some thing in the broth that animal finds disageeable, the smell or some thing and what about you poor cat, is the cat alright? My Tom eats anything but Baby my female cat don't but she sometimes likes titbits from my plate. Tamara

Made it the same way I always do - nothing new, They just wouldn't even taste it. Funny critters. Blossom (one of the two 4 month olds) was literally chasing me for part of my nectarine this morning so shrug - ya never know :D

Maybe they know that it is too high in fat and sodium. I like them, on occasion, but I know that they are sure to ruin any plan of healthy eating. My first hubby liked to have eggs poached in the liquid, then add thin sliced ham, and green onions. I think MY cats like it though.

They gave it the "that's not food" look.
