My cat is not allowed on the worktops although he is allowed to do just about anything else that takes his fancy.

This morning he decided he was going to get on the worktop anyway because I needed chivvying up with his meat.

Unfortunately I was doing myself a bit of toast as well.

Poor old Desmondin his urgency to get me speeded up,turned round to give me a bit of a poe with his paw and burned his bum on the toaster.

my cats are not alowed on the work top
unfortunatly they dont know this ;-) ;-)


Sharron Report 15 Apr 2013 20:37

A burned bum may well be the reminder they need.

hubby shoots ther nerf pistol near them
and they just look at him as if he is crazy
and then eat the foam bullets ;-)

Serves him right :-P

Mine harrass me for food, to the extent that you'd think they were on the edge of starvation.
I'm not a happy bunny when, after dragging myself off the sofa and doling out the grub all 3 sniff it - and walk away :-|

It is your own fault.You got cod and you knew they wanted oryx and polar bear this week.


maggiewinchester Report 15 Apr 2013 22:17

Ooooh no - none of them like cod or salmon (I'm talking cat food not human food) I never buy just fish stuff!!
1 likes tuna. None of them are too keen on beef & chicken - probably because every other tin is either beef or chicken. :-|
They eat it eventually - that's not to say I leave it down. They get fresh food morning (tins) and night time (sachets), and have dried food down all the time. (That doesn't sound like I'm trying to defend myself does it?) :-D

They do like a bit of venison.......


Sharron Report 15 Apr 2013 22:24

What they really want is that flavour they don't actually make and if they did make it they wouldn't want it anyway!


maggiewinchester Report 15 Apr 2013 22:28

Personally, I think a can actually labelled 'horse' would go down well :-D

Our cat likes Aldi's cat food pouches with gravy - easily pleased, bless her. Trouble is, there seems to be a shortage lately. We've been to 3 branches in the last couple of days to track some down. Are we mad or are we mad, would have been a lot cheaper to buy Whiskas at Tesco!


Sharron Report 15 Apr 2013 22:48

Desmond has Aldi pouches in jelly but Fred, who always maintained that he hated cats, bought him some that was on special offer in Budgens.

It was that really cheap stuff at four trays for £1.

Naturally,that was the most wonderful meat ever made for cats and OH had to go and spend a fiver on some more before it sold out.

He also has some of Fred's fish on fish and chip night, a little piece of any other meet that Fred has and some cheese when he has that. Then there is a bit of anything else he might take an interest in when Fred is having a meal and that bit of cream or custard that one of us will leave especially for him.

As if.

Sometimes makes me wonder why we..........
sorry, they, put up with us :-D

Ours only wants what he can't have - If he can have it, he doesn't want it

Awkward or what??

Seriously, he can be really fussy but we wouldn't change him for the world


Annina Report 16 Apr 2013 14:02

I seem to have solved the problem of fussy cats by having four feeding stations. One on the on the kitchen floor,one in the porch for my fav stray,and one under the garden table for various strays-greedy pet cats with perfectly good homes. I think it is the competition that makes them eat whatever I put out for them.

Yesterday my next door neighbour and owner of three cats,brought me round 24 cans of Whiskas various fish in jelly,his starve before touching it,he said. Guess which were the first in the trough when I put some outside?

Don't you just love them,little darlings.. :-S :-S :-S


GinN Report 16 Apr 2013 19:13

They are so manipulative. Right now, my Molly is staring at me - she wants me to let her out, just so she can stare through the french window to be let back in again
This can go on all day if I let her. Somehow, it's hard to ignore. :-|


JackBunion Report 16 Apr 2013 19:29

I always buy the one with 4 varieties - rabbit, game, prawn and lamb. Never have to throw any away. :-)

Have you noticed Tesco own label is 85gm compared to others that are 100g?


PollyinBrum Report 16 Apr 2013 20:27

Can anyone explain why Katie the cat is so fussy and needs to have her cat food finely mashed, but can happily devour a poor little mouse? :-D :-( :-D


Barbara Report 16 Apr 2013 20:36

Ours likes his luxuries. He is fed, in his bowl, in the kitchen - No, he has to carry food in his mouth, into the hall, drop it on the carpet and eat it from there. Contrary of what?
