  • I think you need to go to the store and buy some cat food...

  • lol I doubt it but no harm in potatoes, try it. They do like dairy but can't tolerate a lot of it so you can try a small amout of milk, ice cream, yogurt or cheese. My cat also eats on a rare occassion scrambled egg.

  • LOL We had a cat that ate donuts, loved to lick werther's originals down to nothing, ate a whole plate of pot roast, carrots and potatoes once, and loved spaghetti.

    You can give the mashed potatoes a try. Do you not have any tuna on hand?

  • They'll eat a lof things they are sweet. But don't give kitty chocolate-its BAD.

  • My dad and step mom feed the stray cats in their neighborhood(not only leftovers but they set out cat food as well). They'll eat most anything.

  • Dont get your anima used to eating people food. It is really no good for them.

  • my cat will eat anything. the last weird food shes eaten was green olives. she LOVES mandrin oranges!

  • Lunch meat and processed meat is not good for cats or dogs, as it has LOADS of salt and preservatives that are not good for the animal's body.

    Cats and dogs will eat just about anything, but it's not what is best for them. I suggest going to the store and getting more pet food. They have certain needs that "mashed potatoes" are not going to give them to stay healthy
