This is by far the most annoying thing about my cat. He begs for food constantly. He is NOT hungry. He will NOT eat when he gets what he begged for. It's just the process of begging that he enjoys so much. Oh, and if he doesn't get what he want, he will do his best to steal it. :rolleyes:

Please tell me your cats do that too :D

My gang is super fun to watch when they want something humans eat. They don't attack the eater, they have it all planned and act accordingly 😂 They start by placing themselves somewhere high in different parts of the room (I guess to confuse the eater lol) and then they slowly approach. They barely let out one meow each and instead they just stare and stare and stare... And yes, they do steal whenever possible. One makes sure to distract humans, other grabs the target :rolleyes:

Yup, she will beg and she will not give up until she gets what she want. Unlike your cat, she will eat it, or at least try it if she's not sure her prize is edible.

I feel like vix is dealing with a stealthy team of kibble stealing experts here.

Maybe CCTV installation is in order?

I've got a hungry begger -- Chaucer thinks he needs everything I'm eating or preparing. He even loves spinach and asparagus, but he hates citrus. Immy and Chaucer go nuts begging for honeydew, cantaloupe, and other melons like those. Duncan won't eat anything from my hand. He comes over curiously but doesn't beg. He likes cream though.

The one thing I've found every cat seems to like is cream cheese. It's crazy!

Although not sure how great it is for them... But if Duncan isn't eating anything, maybe dab some on a spoon and see?

Victor was like that when he was younger. He would beg for absolutely everything and would eat it all :rolleyes:

I'm surprised your other two cats didn't follow and are not so interested in food like he is.
