Can cats eat cake? A long time ago, I was asked this question if cats can eat cake by a visiting guest. He wanted to know if our cats would eat it. I gave him the usual curt “no,” but then he persisted, asking me again.
I finally decided to let him have a try. So he started with a slice of apple. I gave him a quizzical look and said, “How old is that?” to which he replied, “Seven.” I then went on to show him a slice of cake. He took this in his paws and looked at me with curiosity. He obviously thought that was the right kind of question to ask. He sat there looking at the cake and making a face.
I then went on to show him a piece of chocolate cake. Again he was fascinated. He kept his face calm and did not get up on his hind legs. I think he was about to fall over, but I stopped him before he got hurt. He returned a few seconds later with his tail still hanging. I think he was just checking to see what else he could get his teeth into. Anyway, he ended up with a whole cake between his teeth, and I think he enjoyed it a lot more than my other guests!
