Maisie once managed to get into my purse and unwrap and eat an unused tampon. That was the day I realized he knows how to open zippers. I still have no idea what caused him to go to all that trouble, since it wouldn't have had much of a smell. He got it out of the applicator and everything! Why, Maisie? Why?

Another time Maisie ate a quarter of a bar of soap before I caught him and took it away. It had come in the mail, and he discovered it before I did.

The weirdest thing Zephyr ever had was... um... a drink. Once when he was a kitten I was having a Kahlua and milk, and I wondered if Zephyr would bother it (this was before I got Maisie,) so I held it where he could smell it, and he wrinkled his nose and backed away. I stupidly figured this meant it smelled bad to him and he wouldn't bother it, so I left it on my desk, went and used the bathroom, threw in a load of laundry, and puttered around a bit.

When I returned, a good third of my drink was gone, and my kitten couldn't walk a straight line. It was funny and horrible at the same time. I felt like a terrible mom, and I have never made the mistake of leaving unattended alcohol near him again.

Oz is bad but Baz will eat almost anything - we had to take potato peel off him this week.

Two things: a house-fly, and dirt from the broom.

Holly jumped up on the table and stole some of my son's penne pasta and sauce. LOL. She looked so hurt when I took it away.

My last cat use to immediately come around whenever anyone was eating a banana. She would meow until you let her sniff and lick the banana peel a couple of times. She wouldn't eat it though. It was bizarre.

Oscar is a pumpkin freak. He'll sit and howl for pumpkin, or any squash really if one is being cut up in the house.

The weirdest thing my cats have tried to eat was my metal key ring.

Two of my cats have always seemed interested in the smell of packaged, unused, tampons, but I really don't know why. I don't think either of them would ever eat one though!

Most of my cats eat normal cat-type things, but Cosette will eat oats, bits of bread and crackers, and lettuce on occasion. And, Galileo is odd, in that he really likes fruit. He'll readily eat, and even mooch for, tomatos, watermelon, cantaloupe, roasted bell peppers (though not a fruit), kiwi, peaches, apricots, and nectarines.
