    That’s because Cheez Whiz isn’t cheese. It’s not really food either. edible chemicals aren’t food.

    My cat loves fresh baked muffins. I’ve ready articles that say cats won’t eat anything that isn’t protein. Really? My daughter has also a cat who loves fresh baking.

    I brought home a bag of fresh muffins from the bakery and he was leaping at the bag like it was salmon cat treats.

    His favourite muffins are lemon poppyseed. He also loves cranberry orange muffins from the local bakery. It’s bizarre.

    Hey, you aren't the only one with cats that like strange stuff.

    BOTH my cats like beans and rice.

    I bought my bunny a new toy (a dog toy), and he just loves it. He runs around with it in his mouth and shakes it around. It is so cute. Who knew that bunnies liked to run and around play like a puppy? :)

    Some cats do as well. My littlest cat Lightning likes to chase his tail like a puppy, as well as play fetch and drag washcloths all around the house. One time, he took my glasses off of my nightstand and hid them in his little toy storage place. Took me an hour to find them.

    And, if I'm bored, and Lightning is within arms reach, I grab his tail and wiggle it near his nose, and he thinks it's a cat toy.

    I had a cat that liked to wrap itself around your neck like a chinchilla fur shawl. Like you were wearing a scarf.

    Our neighbour’s cat - the black cat in my avatar picture, is my cat’s BFF. They’re about the same age. The black cat is a couple of months younger, I think, but they’ve been hanging out together since they were neutered and started going outside.

    The black cat comes to my back door, and meows for Smudge to come out and play. She will often jump onto the kitchen window ledge and meow at the window if I don’t hear her at the door.

    The crazy Siamese cat from across the street plays with squirrels. Sometimes he chases the squirrels. Then they switch and the squirrels chase him.

    My cat always runs and hides inside my closet, when he hears the garbage truck coming...which happens once a week here.

    I can't understand why he does that? :dunno:

    Most cats don't like loud noises. I know that if there are Harleys going down my street and the cats are outside, if they hear the Harleys, the first thing that they want is to get back in the house.

    4th of July is hell on them as well.
