OF COURSE, i get the weird cat

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
So my fiancee and I rescued an 8 week-old kitten back at the end of September, whom we thought was a girl. On our first vet visit, we were told she was definitely a girl. We dubbed her Eloise ("Ella") for short, and bought her a princess-pink carrier. Well, you all know where this is going. At the next visit (at which I was going to make an appointment for a spay), we, er, discovered we'd been sadly mistaken. Ha. "She" is now scheduled to be neutered on December 4th.

Ella, now dubbed "Kittenpants" (what we'd been calling "her" anyway, haha) or Kit for short, has evolved into a rather unusual creature. Which suits my fiancee and I perfectly, I guess.

I bought some "Bitter Yuck!" spray from PetSmart to deter him from chewing on the cords behind the TV. Um. Which was a great idea, until I discovered him licking the spray from off the cords and the floor. And looking for more. So much for THAT idea.

Also, my fiancee (bless her heart) was cleaning the bathroom the other day... and Kit managed to nose his way into the bathroom, and he actually took a lick of the Scrubbing Bubbles She managed to shoo him away before he could get a hold of any more, but SHEESH! Needless to say, all of the cleaning supplies are stored very far out of reach.

This is also, by the way, a cat who LIVES for broccoli. We don't share too often, but he begs like a dog for it.

Anybody else have a cat with unusual taste buds??

Riley will also eat anything. Banana is the ONLY thing I have found that he will not eat. A lot of products use citrus as a deterrent, but that doesn't work with him as he will EAT oranges, pineapple, etc. He loves pickles, sweet and dill both, sauerkraut, litterally ANYTHING except banana, lol.

*laughs* how cute!!! He likes vegetables! none of my cats will touch them!!

my cats are all quite picky. Cierron seems to have a taste for skin though - I'm holding him, he'll lick my hand for about 3 minutes and then suddenly bite!! Not hard enough to actually hurt or anything! Then he'l just go back to lick...bite...lick...bite

Hahaha... this is how we'll get woken up in the morning, if we sleep later than Kittenpants thinks we ought to. He particularly likes to lick...lick...bite my poor fiancee's butt while she's sleeping.

I had the same problem, I had a he harry who was a boy right up until the operation, on the final vet check he was a girl so we called her Harriet.

But no odd tastes here.

I have yet to come across something PJ won't eat. He likes his fruits, veggies, pastas, breads, meats, &.....mmmmm......paper.

OMg, that's hilarious! Tiger and Angel will try to lick the cleaning products' nozzel heads but I always keep an eye on them when I have them out. They also have discovered that paper towels are a wonderful scratch and chew toy! I hope they don't notice the toilet paper...

Once I had some pain relieving rub on my leg, like Bengay, and Popsie started to lick my leg. I took me a second to figure out why he was doing it and I made him stop.

Java's a real nut about minty things, too - not just lotions & salves, but also menthol cigarettes!

Oscar will eat anything that "crinkles." lol But he's really scared of bananas! You put a banana near him and he runs away as if one assaulted him, *giggle*

Other than that, Scotty likes popcicles.

I had a cat that liked mint gum & another that loved doritos.
Cello loves anything Italian. The smell of garlic wakes him everytime.
Nothing too unusual. Except Benson loves wood. You should see our wooden spoon. LOL

Sounds familiar,

Sibohan beggs for potatoes and Ham along with bread, manderin oranges and occassionally licks off my hand cream.
We had a She/He cat Sugar our beautiful Orange and white long hair cat, when I was young turned into "Sam" when we took her...him in to be fixed. Somtimes their "equiptment" isn't all that destinct as a kitten

Our cats seem pretty finicky compared to all the other cats here! Leya is the only one who will eat odd things. Fruit mostely, pinnapples, peaches....

OH YEAH!!!! There is ONE thing Leya goes crazy for......... WINE!!!! I'm not even kidding when I say as soon as I open the bottle she is there. She goes nuts for it, I'm not sure why, but I know it's the alcohol in it because flavor doesn't matter. Of course, should would prefer my good wine to Wine Coolers any day. Sophisticated taste I suppose Of course we don't give her a glass, but now and again I wil hear licking and there she is with her head in my wine glass

Oh my goodness, I don't think there is a soul on earth that wouldn't know Stuart was a boy.....even when we first got him at 8 weeks!!!!

ehhh...once you get him neutered technically he becomes and 'It"....so the pink carrier will still do.

Patches goes wild for green olives. She won't eat them, but she headbutts and purrs everything in sight when we open a jar of green olives.

Reagan's favorite is plastic. It's her favorite flavor in the world, particularly plastic carrier bags from Wal-mart or other stores. She just loves them! DH thinks she's probably cleaning her teeth on them (like floss) and I think he's right, because she doesn't actually *ingest* the stuff.

Most of my cats will eat absolutely ANYTHING that even slightly resembles food. They absolutely love veggies and fruits of all kinds.

Geez!

It's more common than I thought...

My wife and I rescued two kittens a year ago from the shelter. They name the kittens. They listed both as females.... I kept the name SweetPea for on and my wife changed the other to Samantha.

Same scenario as you.... we had them for about 4 months before they got "fixed". During that time... I thought I noticed some irregular about "Samantha's" privates during that time.

Well... My wife ended up going into labor the day they were sceduled to get fixed. My mother had to take them for us and I'm glad because I would have been embarrassed.

It ended up that both are males. We kept SweetPea's name and changed Samantha to Sammy but he still has his pink collar that we bought at the shelter when we got him. I realized something was funny but brush it off cause I figure the shelter knew. I'm glad they're boys though. I grew up w/ 11 females and 1 male. Now w/ 2 males and 1 female (Queen B of the house)... there seems to big difference in the cat opera we live w/ day to day....lol.

Several years ago, our roommate had a very furry black kitten that we were positive was a little girl. Well, I was hold the kitty one day and noticed that it had two little lumps on its bottom. Well, needless to say she was a he. He didn't have to change the name tho since he named him Bear and that fit for both.

I tried something like that last year on the Christmas tree. Lucy found it more appetizing. She also finds a particular facial lotion very tasty to the point where she will lick me raw if I let her.

Sal raids the kitchen floor for pieces of broccoli, salad, or anything else that falls down. He also LOVES to eat his hair (he's semi-long hair) when I brush him I'll put the clumps of hair in the trash but sometimes they float to the floor and he'll just snack on it. He also loves dust and above all yogurt.

Junior is pretty picky on what he'll eat, but bananas are the only thing he's actually arched his back and back away from. He does love Pringles, btw.

Fable's picky but Jupey will eat anything, if he were a stray he'd probably live in a dustbin, he's a very stinky boy given the chance!

omg Berach is the same way with beer. he comes running anytime he hears the sound of one opening. occasionally we'll bust him trying to lick the top of the can. My BF just says, "honey, get your 'boozer kitty' off my beer" haha

O! and Berach and Chloe LOVE carrots, it's really funny to watch them go crazy over one.

Daphne loves my iced tea. I have taken to drinking it from a covered mug so she cannot get her head into it She still licks the mug all over hoping to get a taste. She also loves my leave-in hair conditioner - think there must be mint in it.
