My dog LOVES uncooked tofu. She goes nute for it! Also, she absolutely freaks out for frozen french fries- still frozen. She also loves all her veggies– carrots, broccoli, cucumber, spinach, artichokes. She despises brown rice, though.

The ferrets on the other hand, love mushrooms and grapes and dried fruit. They don’t gey any of it much, but when they do… those little fuzzies go nuts! (The smaller one actually hides her treats and eats them later.)

my cats are so weird. they don’t eat anything but meow mix – like we’re talking no other brands, no soft food, no tuna… nothing. HOWEVER, one of them loves popsicles and will lick them whenever he gets the chance. and the other one loves parmesean cheese. if we eat pizza and put it on top, he’ll lick your plate or your slice of pizza when you turn around.

I was going to say popsicle sticks but then realized everyone was talking about actualy food items!  Both of my dogs love ice.  They will be in the basement and if someone makes a drink with ice upstairs they will run up and sit and stare at you and the freezer.  The other week they actually looked so pathetic that I gave them the last 2 cubes and had a warm bourbon and coke.

Cheese!  The dog could be sound asleep on the couch but as soon as she hears the cheese drawer open in the fridge, she’s standing right under you.  

She also loves milk.  She can’t wait to get at the glass after I drink it.  

Besides that, she’s a begger in general.  She waits and stares at the dishes after we’re done eating, waiting until she gets them to “pre-wash”.

Our one cat eats EVERYTHING. His favourite is veggies… I swear, he can smell tomatoes or peppers from a mile away. He also loves bread, pancakes, anything that comes out of a bag, cereal, strawberries and other fruit, mustard, pickles, tea bags… you name it. Not that we feed him many of these things intentionally, but if we’re not careful and turn our backs while cooking, he steals food and runs away with it! He also eats his regular food, so that’s not a problem, and we’ve checked with the vet… the vet thinks he was a neglected outdoor cat before we got him, and had to eat whatever he could find. So funny.

Our other cat is a food snob and will only eat one kind… However, for some reason, he goes ape-shit over olives. Weeeird.

Our cat who passed away in December used to love prosciutto. Like could hear the deli bag opening across the house and be in your face trying to eat it out of your mouth loved it. He had good taste, lol!!

My cat likes canned mushrooms and canned corn- but more like the juice from the canned corn.  One of my dogs will eat anything.  There hasn’t been a vegetable that he doesn’t like.  One time he spit out a pickle but then once he got used to the bitterness of it- he went back and ate it!  You honestly would think he is starving although he hasn’t went a day or even 12 hours without food!  We even have to put a tennis ball in his food dish because he eats so fast.

@futuremrskline: so cute!!

What DOESN’T my pup eat?! He loves vegetables, except leafy greens, and that’s probably just because he can’t chew them easily. Cheese of course, and peanut butter, and he’s been known to take down a HUGE pork shoulder bone in 1 hour.

But the funniest thing is corn on the cob–he learned how to shuck and eat corn on the cob just like a human. Puts his paw over the one end and pulls the husk down with his teeth, then nibbles off the kernels!!

He would eat anything given the chance.  Such a terrible begger.  But he has a bad tums, so he can’t eat anything human.  However….he loves eating acorns, and all sorts of random plant crap on the ground.  It’s bizarre.  Oh…and bark.  He loves eating bark and woodchips in the dog park.  I spend most of my time running after him yelling “drop it!” because I don’t want it returning later on when he throws it up….

When he’s sick or needs pills though, cheese is our go to.  Loves cheese.

My last cat (Rhapsodie) loved french fries, she wouldn’t beg for or eat any other human food but if she saw you had french fries she would try to take one from you.

My cat Lola loves mangoes, watermelon, lettuce, oranges… she acts RABID when she smells any of the fruits, and often tries to steal them from me as I’m eating them!!!

My cat Azrael loves Icy Hot. Yes, the muscle rub. If I put that on, she will attack me, licking, and then biting me when I try to get away!

Our pug Brutus eats gum wrappers and anything else that smells even faintly of food if we leave it in rage. Our other pug, Otis, eats hair.

They’re a little crazy. They do eat their food, though. Brutus would climb walls to get scrambled egg or banana.
