I have a treat snob

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Trout is sooooooo weird.

Anytime I give her treats, she snubs her nose at them. She will leave them all day sometimes before she "chokes" them down in a weak moment

I literally have about 7 different types of treats..hard, soft, all different flavours...

She is a reverse piggy! Its so strange.

Must be a tortie thing.
Annabelle does it too, BUT as soon as she sees Gracie and Elliott have finished eating their's and are going after hers she runs and gobbles them all down.

I don't know, maybe she thinks I'm trying to poison her and she's using Gracie and Elliott as her taste testers...if they don't drop over then they're safe for her to eat.

I just thought of something...that gives you an excuse to get another kitty, that way Trout will have a taste tester too!

Milo is like that too. I have found one kind he likes, but he will only eat them if he wants to. He usually leaves them there and when he comes back for them, Zebra has already ate them.

Lucy will sniff and walk away. Much will sometimes turn her nose up. Carly eats about anything.

Okay good..I thought she was a freak I figured most cats just gobble them up with no problem!

All three of my kitties gobble treats down like there is no tomorrow

Sometimes, they hiss and spit at each other just to get at them too.

Stanley is a treat snob. Luckily, my floor stays clean because Bella will eat anything --Stan's favorite treat is actually a couple of pieces of kibble --he used to eat Greenies, but now it's just kibble

None of mine like cat treats. They'll eat dried chicken dog chews though (100% dried chicken, safe for cats )

Linus is like that as well, that is until he thinks one of the other cats are looking at them, then he will eat them very slowly giving Sassy and Pixie the evil eye as he does...
You know he is thinking " I don't really want these but there is no darn way your getting them"

Rosie scoffs hers down. I always give them some when i leave for work in the mornings, and if Rosie's upstairs i'll put some down for her, but when she hears me putting some downstairs for Jack she leaves hers and runs downstairs to help him before going back up to finish hers

Just don't buy caviar for Trout. You might find Trout has expensive taste in treats.

Tiny has to get used to treats before he'll eat them. But eventually he gives it a try. Neither cat is very fond of anything but chicken wet food, so I feed mostly dry... They're creatures of habit, those cats.

I think it's a survival thing. Cats are very careful about eating new things, because in the wild those new things could be dangerous. If you have a picky kitty, she probably inherited that trait from her wild ancestors.

Hennessy rarely wants a cat treat unless I try to give them to the dog, in which case, they're amazingly delicious (until he can hide them under the couch and forget about them).

He'll pick them out of his food dish too. Eat all the food and the treats are set daintily beside the bowl.

We have four different types of treats for George, and he likes them all except the Whiskas Temptations ones, which you would think he'd like the most! He even likes the ones that are good for him and help clean his little teeth!!! He's a strange kitty indeed.

Lexi won't eat treats either but Maggie and Louie do. Now the funny thing is, about once a week I let them have a small can of wet food for a treat. Maggie won't eat that. Louie eats it all. Are girls just more picky?

Persi is a cheese aficionado. He used to eat any cheese I would give him and then one day I spotted some Vermont white cheddar cheese that was aged two years. Persi went crazy over this stuff. That remained his treat for quite a while until I spotted some Canadian white cheddar cheese that was aged four years. Talk about going crazy over a treat! That is now his very special treat. The other night I was having a ham and cheese sandwich and as usual Persi was almost trying to take it out of my hands so I tore off a piece and offered it to him. And yes, he snubbed his nose at it and it remained uneaten. Normal cheese is just beneath him now.
