Default What is wrong with the boys?

Basho and Issa, that is. I stopped at the market on the way home from
work and noticed they had an "all natural, no nitrites or preservatives"
ham on sale. I thought I'd get a treat for the kids, so I got a few
slices of said natural ham. Rufous almost knocked me over as I was
dividing the ham on the counter among several bowls and Maya would not
stop yowling about the yummyness to come. I put the bowls down and
retreated a few feet for my own safety.
Basho and Issa smelled the ham and proceeded to leave the kitchen. What
is wrong with them? Has anybody ever met a cat that did not like ham?
I think Xoxo didn't eat any either.

Sonny won't eat ham either. He turns his nose up at any kind of meat or
fish. He wants cat food only, or milk.

Maybe they want their preservatives?

I've never tried to give my cats ham, but I eat hot dogs sometimes,
and Roxy drives me insane trying to get some. But Licky has never been
interested, and even Smudge is so-so about it. I expect their reactions
would break down the same way to ham, too.

The others don't know that it isn't bad for them. LOL

Oh, Victor, don't let them fool you! Have you forgotten, the Kitty Code
doesn't allow them to actually *admit* to enjoying something special
that you gave them. But if you put some finely diced ham in a dish on
floor when you go to bed, in the morning that dish would have been
scoured clean.

Woodgie loved Spam (the Hormel kind) when she was a kitten- loved brisket,
too. But now that she's grown up, she'll only eat cat food - and only kibble
for the most part. Her canned food experience is to lick juice off of it and
let it sit until it dries up. Then it seems to be acceptable and she'll
polish it off....

"all natural, no nitrites or
preservatives"

You just answered your own question, Take out all the "good stuff" and what
is left. The cats knew all the good stuff had been removed!!!

Doh! You're right. I forgot they hate super-premium, 95% pure meat, no
grains foods.

Actually mine have never shown much interest in it - or in ANY "people
food", for that matter. I DID have one, once, who like fruit flavored
yogurt, and another who drank half a glass of brandy fortified eggnog
when it was left unguarded one Christmas. The ex-feral kitten I adopted
from summer camp when I was a teenager liked popcorn, potato chips and
ice-cream (along with ANYTHING that landed in his dish), but most of my
feline companions have preferred cat-food.
