Tortie Tuesday

Happy Tortie Tuesday!

Today I'm going to skip the lessons and talk about one of my favorite things - Food!

Mommy thinks I have the most bizarre taste in food out of all the cats she's known. She also thinks that being on my own as a kitten for awhile and having to find my own meals may have been the reason I like so many different things. I was really skinny when I went to live with her so it was really nice to move in and find out that food was plentiful.

By now most of you have heard about my love for beer. Please don't worry because I know when to stop and even if I didn't, Mommy would never let me drink more than I should.

Here is the list of some of my favorite things besides my cat food:

Beer ~ a capful or two at the most!
Bananas and the peel ~ I guess that's because I'm a Monkey ;)
Pizza ~ I steal it off the plate
Pineapple and pineapple juice ~ Fresh is best but I'll settle for canned
Avocados ~ It's best in a salad with croutons
Tomatoes ~ I even eat the stems!
Yogurt ~ I think most of you like this
Ivory soap ~ I am not allowed to eat this ever again. I'll never forget the awful shriek that came out of Mommy when she found me eating this!
Chicken Korma ~ A spicy Indian dish made out of CHICKEN! I don't know why Mommy thinks this is 'weird'. It's chicken!
Lettuce ~ I once took off with a whole head of lettuce
Ketchup ~ On a burger is best
Oranges ~ Not the peel, just the orange
Strawberries ~ Here's a video of me enjoying a stawberry

Now I'm pretty sure I'm not weird but Mommy thinks I have strange taste so I'm anxious for feedback from my friends about this. Do any of you like 'weird' things?

You're funny, Delilah! I only like real kitteh food, although I do like to lick the bowl if icecream is on the menu.

Anya said...

I also like Cat food,
or ham and cheese and coooockies :)
Lovely video we enjoyed it :)

Mom has to defend every meat she eats. Siena likes dry pasta! We both like yoghurt... The other day our neighbour wanted to bribe us with cooked ham and - can you believe it - Chilli refused it!!!
Purrs, Siena & Chilli

Wow Delilah! I never try it before!
Come to my bloggie!
I've tagged u!

Delilah, you like some very interesting foods! Maggie May likes a few strange foods too.... like Mac N Cheese, crackers, french fries, chips, pies, and cake. She will try to eat anything of of mom's plate.

CCL Wendy said...

Delilah -- that is sooooooooo cute with the strawberry! Yes, indeed, I think it's because you had to eat anything to survive that you developed a taste for all these exotic kitty delicacies!

My kitties don't like anything too strange. Dante loves to eat yogurt, but only if I feed it to him out of a spoon. He likes strawberry the best, too, and eats the little bits of berry.

My friend has a kitty who loves cantaloupes.

Zeus said...

That's an amazing list of food delicacies, Delilah. I'm very picky about what I eat so I tend to stay with kitty food and tuna. My sister, Isis, on the other hand, enjoys anything she can get her paws on. You two should meet sometime!

Mishkat said...

That's a great video with the strawberry - and that's an amazing list of food (and soap! Yikes!) We think your mom is probably right that you had to eat a lot of different foods to survive when you were on your own. We are so glad you have a good home now! Big purrs to your mom.

P.S. Tasha says she only likes kitty food - of course, chicken is OK too! Dobby is the same way, but Franklin has to check out everything the people are eating just to see. So far, the only "strange" thing we've found that he likes is the juice from olives.

Delilah, my sister, Hope, has some interesting food habits too but not quite as diversified as yours.

Our mom thinks Hope got her "people-comfort-food" cravings the same way you did...from having to forage for herself to stay alive. Hope like butter and mayonaise among other things.

Unknown said...

Oh yeah, we eat weird things too, Delilah! Dizzy loves cheddar cheese and the milk at the bottom of mom's cereal bowl. Harry will stand up on his back feets for roast beef! Pip will eat anything that doesn't eat him first, including spaghetti noodles and cottage cheese. I like yogurt and ice cream, too! I'll have to try a strawberry--it looks yummy!!!

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

That is quite an array of food you like there. I was so surprised that you like orange as it is known that cats hate orange, some people use it as a deterant. You are unusual. I think it is probably because you had to get any food you could.

No matter though if you enjoy that is all that matters.

Ummmmm Delilah, I would never call anything you do, including your dietary habits, "wierd"..."odd" maybe, but never "wierd" ;)

The Island Cats said...

Those are some strange things to eat, we hafta admit!

Wally likes tomatoes...he once took one right off the counter...mom forgot all about it for a few weeks...then found the "remains" under the bed...ewww!

Scooter, the one that came before us, liked to lick the Ivory soap bar...he never ate it, but he did lick the h*ck out of it!

Quill and Greyson said...

How cute! I love soap! I like the honey soap or the glycerin kinds best. Yum!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

What an impressive list!!

I adore soap too with a side order of warm soapy water. Mmmmm....

Daisy said...

You have some very fancy tastes! Pixie loved bananers, but she never ate the peel. Harley likes watermelon! I enjoy cheeses.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

You do have strange tastes. We don't eat anything weird, but I do Like to drink soapy bathwater.

Anonymous said...

We can honestly say that we've never seen a kitty eat a strawberry! Your diet is very interesting, Delilah. Very interesting...

Pee Ess: Tristan goes crazy for green olives!

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Strawberries? Oh wow--Tommy says you can never come to visit when strawberries in season. She says you're pretty and everything, but she'd have to fight you for them!


Just Ducky said...

You have some very different food likes. Give me meat, no fruit or veggies!

BeadedTail said...

You certainly aren't a picky eater Delilah! My sisfur Angel likes whipped cream and I like popcorn and tortilla chips. My big sisfur Sadie eats anything!
