    Do you feed your four legged friend people food? My cat is fairly new to my home, only got her in November, and I think was still a bit of a kitten. Definately a very young adult, at most, this creature. She LOVES people food and I have allowed her to graze on left overs, and have been giving her milk daily.

    My friends think she is gaining weight, and I can see she looks different but I had expected her to grow some. She's in no danger of being overweight, and eats her cat food with a good appetite.

    What say you?

    As a practice milk is not good for cats...gives them belly aches..that's the truth.

    We give our dog a tiny portion of what we are eating for dinner..and I mean tiny. My wife thinks it makes him feel like "one of us". I think it causes him to beg more, but that's not a battle I want to fight.

    Okay, I will stop the milk.

    What about people food? The critter has a terrible sweet tooth. I have never had a cat that loved chocolate before.

    Define "people food". If you're talking murkin chow like BK, KFC, MC'D, Nacho Hell,SubPar,Pizza Rut,Wendy's,Redneck lobster, Guinea Garden and that shit ? NO

    My dogs, twice a day have an assortment of a leafy greens( various types/mostly spinach or radish tops), broken rice, carrots, squash, beef kidney,fatty meat, heart and brains.I add a little salt and tons of garlic.In the morning they usually get eggs, a little yuca, and some fresh milk. They eat about 2 bananas or plaintains per day as snacks. They get raw bones as I occasionally bone out chickens, rabbits etc. They get the entrails as well.
    This diet has been adjusted several times as regular blood samples reveal nutritional deficits and excesses. I do the same testing for my toucans, parrots, fish ( yes. you can take blood samples) and rabbits.I nearly hurt my toucans with feeding too much iron content.

    The pigs, I could care less.Four or five months and they get the sledgehammer and knife treatment. I like to pretend they're in uniform:eek: when I do it.:eusa_shhh::tongue:

    My cat loves Iams dogfood. She won't eat the catfood so I just gave up and let her eat the dogfood

    My dog eats mostly what I eat with Iams dogfood as her emergency the man isn't eating anything I like food.

    I think if you eat good food, and you share it with your dog or cat, they'll be eating well, too.

    i used to have a beer with my pigs quite often Douger, i figured it kinda cut to the chase, kept me outta bad bars and trouble .....they're rather sociable animals when 1/2 cocked , and can't dial a phone the next day.....everyone wins!

    and we're on the doggie diet here, the place setting are, Knife, Fork, Dog , maybe that fat a*shat Dr Phil will pick it up, eh?
