Does anyone else do this?

Lex loves his cat grass, but has a hard time chomping down on it from the top. So, I started the *very* bad habit of feeding it to him by hand. And now he expects it! Now if that's not a spoiled cat, I don't know what is.

*guilty*

Chloe does too, but fortunately she doesn't expect it. She just seems to appreciate the help.

I'd say that's a happy cat. I've started the ritual of holding Chasey before bed and hand feeding her shaved bonito, a gift I got from the three S girls (thanks again Steph!). I wash my hands right after though. I don't want my hand to be smelling like Chasey breath and bonito.

I grow "Kitty-Pot", er, I mean catnip for Toby and Tedy....but given the chance they will jump up on the counter and get to the windowsill and help themselves. (They are not allowed on the counters in the kitchen....but if i`m not looking or am gone they think the rule is up for grabs.....but I always know because I`ll find the pot (container) and plant and dirt in the kitchen sink.) If they could master hanging onto the pot (container) so that it does`nt get knocked off the shelf....then I`d probably never be the wiser...unless they ate it all!

I thought Ivo was the only one! She ends up "grooming" her grass, not eating it, so I have to hand-feed it to her.

We have some spoiled babies for sure!

Vespacat,
My daughter has a Russian Blue named Bentley. He's a BIG guy, and handsome! He was the first Russian Blue I'd ever seen. What a neat breed. We all spoil our babies. Nothing wrong with that!

Of course... and catnip leaves, spinach and lettuce too.

Great stories, everyone. But I do have to ask... what is bonito??? Is it like catnip?

This is just another case of the old saying Dogs have owners, Cats have staff!

It's fish flakes, I believe. Like "Kitty Kaviar".
Jamie manages to eat his cat grass himself, but for some reason cheese has to be hand fed. I assume it sticks too easily to his dish, or the windowsill (where he gets his evening treats).

"Dried shaved bonito flakes" That's what the bag says. It is a fish. Steph will have to tell you how she discovered them as a treat. They are actually used in many Japanese soup stocks and bases.

Boy oh boy do we like to spoil our cats. And I thought I was OTT 'cos I like to scatter their kibble across the floor so they can chase it and get some excitement from their food.

Mik will go after any piece of kibble that misses their dish when refill it, before eating from the bowl.
