Currently I have 2 cats that will eat vegatables before any meat. I used to have about 7 cats and all of them would chow down on brocolli (it was their favorite) and any other vegtable that was on the plates. But if I put down steak or hambuger, they will wait until I give them vetgtables to eat. (They do have cat food but they get specail treats {table food}). Has anyone ever had cats like this?

one of our cats is like this and loves veggies. I wouldn't be worried- its a vegetable and as long as it isn't something considered toxic for them, it should be fine! =D

I don't know, my cat wont eat ANY human food, even fish or milk! My dogs will eat anything, and when ever I try to feed my cat any type of human food, she refuses. She just loves her special cat food mix and cat treats.

I have seen our cats play with string beans, grapes and cherries, but they won't eat them. I have a friend whose cats like oranges and melon better than any kind of food. Never heard of any cats liking to eat fruit before!

I have known many dogs that love veggies and fruits, but no cats. I don't feed my cats people food very often though, so maybe they would love veggies and fruits. My aunt and uncles dog will eat any veggie there is though! (Her favorite is Tomatoes!) That is funny though that your cats love veggies! :)

Yeah, one of my cats once ate a tomato right out of the back of a sandwich I was also eating at the time. And another one loves raw vegetables - but more as toys than as actual food. I think they must make a satisfying crunch that reminds him of mouse bones or something (not that he has ever in his life SEEN a mouse, much less eaten one).

My cat Mickey, our youngest, LOVES fruits and vegetables over meat, chicken, fish, etc! It's really strange. He also loves yogurt, which probably isn't as strange. He paws you as you eat your fruit and tries to steal vegeatables off your dinner plate. He prefers them raw. It's good to know there are others like him out there! The only thing a little unusual about him is that he was hand raised by my friend when he was only days old. Does this have something to do with it, I do not know!

I had a cat that insisted on chicken. Baked. Had no choice but to make sure there was always chicken for dinner. Fortunately, I LOVE chicken.

I had a cat that LOVED Granny Smith Apples and also enjoyed carrots and tomato sauce. Even when he was dying and had to get an IV twice a day and was being offered tuna, chicken, steak, and anything I could think of the only thing he would eat was Granny Smith Apples! The second you cut into one he would come running no matter where he was, on the other hand you had to find him to offer him some tuna for a treat! Cats are just very unique creatures!
