  • We have 4 cats cats, 3 eat mostly wet and dry cat food but the old tom cat (16) will only eat cat biscuits and human food. He has raw hamburger ( minced mouse to him ) raw steak and cooked fish, chicken and beef. He isn't keen on pork but he will eat a little cheese and mayonnaise. We must have tried him on every brand of canned cat food on the market over the years to no avail. He has long since given up hunting so we hunt at the supermarket for him . He is a lovely old fellow , a good friend .

  • Our dog gets some leftover steaks, or turkey burgers, but it's rare. Normally when there isn't enough to save...

  • We have guinea pigs- we feed them 'people food' every day, but it's only fruit and vegetables. Dh always points out that half our produce bill goes to the piggies! LOL!

  • Our Lab gets a LOT of people food. Sometimes it's leftovers, sometimes I cook specifically for her (organs & rice, most of the time). Doesn't faze her, she's never been sick, she loves it.

  • I don't. The only 'people food' my dog gets is if the kids drop it on the floor when they are eating.

  • They will get the last small bite once in a while when we're finished eating but that's about it. We don't give them food if we're having a snack because that just becomes a bad habit, and isn't healthy for them.

  • I offer my indoor cats a sniff of my food but the outdoor stray cat and neighborhood dog help themselves to leftovers daily
