Is it normal for her to..

Eat Onions, tomatoes, potatoes, carrots and chicken in broth?

Ben bought a whopper 2 nights ago and she just attacked his food and ate atleast a quater of the burger! Is this normal???

She eats way more than teufel, ben thought it was because she has worms, but so far she seems to be healthy.

What do you think?

Am i just too used to teufel being picky?

Onions are toxic to cats... I would not reccomend he to eat that It is probably Teufel is just picky... I have a couple cats that will eat anything too!

i know we took a video because its very cute.

I knew they werent good for them but before i could remove it from her she was already eating the tomato! (luckly the onion was a small piece)
She was actually very hungry when she got here, she ate a whole bowl of dry food by 10 pm that evening.
Now she seems to be satisfied

Don't kittens need more food than full grown cats? At least in proportion to size.

Yes, it may seem so, as they are growing so fast when they're tiny. Still, the suggested serving sizes for their weight and age bewilder me.

Reading from the side of the bag...
serving size for less than four months, 3 lb. cat: ½ cup
serving size for 4-6 months, 4 lb. cat: ½ cup
serving size for 7-12 month, 5 lb. cat: ½ cup

Please be careful what you let her eat, even in small amounts many foods we eat are toxic to cats- onions, tomatoes, chocolate

fwan - glad your burger king kitty has a full tummy!

hissy - i'm concerned, if tomatoes are bad for kitties (and i trust you that they are) why are they in some cat foods? i just noticed that the innova evo i feed lists tomatoes in the ingredients?

I know I'm not hissy, but I'm up, so I'll share some info about cats and tomatoes:

Tomato plants contain a toxin, solanine, as do the potato plants. The green parts of the plants (stems, leaves, buds, unripe fruit) have the highest concentrations. I'm wary of any cat foods that contain tomatoes and potatoes because there are no guarentees of the ripeness of the fruit/vegetable, and because we don't know how careful they are about keeping the stems out. This site discusses some of the symptoms experienced by a cat who ingested some cherry tomatoes: http://www.felinefuture.com/nutrition/tomato.php

As for kitties being attracted to junk food, I have the king. Spot will tear into bags that the fast food came in trying to get to any little bit of grease. He loves bread products of any kind (though they don't love him--he gets diarrhea), and he once stole a KFC biscuit from right in front of me, though I stole it back. The first night I let him roam my apartment, he stole and ate two chocolate chip cookies. Fortunately, they only gave him minor intestinal upsets, and I learned to keep the cookies in cupboards with closed doors. He has tried more than once to open pizza boxes to get whatever might be left inside. Even the smell of greasy food gets his attention.

thanks cloud_shade! i guess i'm just a little frustrated right now...i just finished switching clinton from science diet to innova evo after i learned about by-products a couple weeks ago. he loves the evo and now tomatoes and potatoes (both of which are in the evo!) UHG!!!

ps - clinton loves the smell of fast food bags too...crazy kids!

when i got teufel he never ate that much!
She eats her wet food and then HIS! i had to seperate them untill teufel got to finish his meal, She gets cat milk and eats most of the dry food.
Mind you what she is eating is atleast 1 1/2 cups of food a day.

Our Hobbes will eat ANYTHING you offer him, even if it's greased-up plastic! It's insane the quantity of food this guy eats in a day!! We can't leave our food unguarded (no matter WHAT it is) because we'll come back (even five minutes later) to find him munchin' on it!! When he was a baby, I would let him sniff the food he would be begging for, hoping he would decide that it stunk and not want it (like most cats), but EVERY time, he would try to eat it!! Needless to say, Hobbes doesn't get to sniff-test ANY food anymore!! LOL!! We call him our Piggy Cat, our vacuum, etc.
