Gravy Train.
They get a taste of just about everything we eat. I won't give them anything that I think will upset their stomach. They DO NOT get scrambled eggs either, or, we pay for it later!! LOL
They LOVE tomatoes. They love ice too. When DH fixes his cooler every morning, they stand at the frig and wait. All they have to do is hear the ice maker spitting out ice and they will coming running!

My hammy Napoleone gets the seed mix with special reinforcement of extra sunflower seeds daily, but the brat has a habit of only cherry picking on sunflower seeds, pumpkin seed and sometimes corn, and throw the stuff he doesn't like out of the cage.
He also loves cheese, crumbs from breads, cakes and biscuits, and all sort of nuts.... ah, and he loves to lick on whipped cream!!
<<<Napoleone gorging on one of his favourite treat, Cantuccini with hazelnuts

other dead pets? after all, you are a raven.

my cats get 2 feedings of canned food a day. usually fancy feast, but we mix in some whiskas pouches, and an occasional sheba or other can.
they have available at all times about 3 or 4 kinds of dry food, (we got in this bad habit when we were d.i.n.ks and the pets were our "kids"), including hill's science diet - oral care and sensitive stomach, purina indoor formula, and a few others.
for treats, the get whiskas treats, and ham or turkey cold cuts, and leftover sashimi.

my birds, an african grey and a molluccan cockatoo, get a bowl of fresh food and water, as well as a parrot seed mix, and "zupreem"or "kaytee exact" parrot pellets.
my grey gets a few peanuts everyday, but i have to limit his intake of those. he would eat peanuts all day long if allowed. same goes for my molluccan and almonds. an old friend taught my grey to say "slut for a peanut!".
their fresh food bowls always consists of a fruit (grapes, oranges, apples, pears, melons, berries, etc.), a veggie (broccoli, cauliflower, cukes, tomatoes, corn, eggplants, yams, carrots, beans, peas, etc.), and a starch (potatoes, bread, pasta, etc.).
they also get many of our leftovers, except for anything that contains chocolate or avocado. they love hard boiled eggs, pizza, chicken and turkey leg bones, sushi, meatloaf, tuna salad, egg salad, potato and mac salad, hamburgers and hot dogs, french fries, pancakes, doritos and potato chips... pretty much anything (junk and otherwise ) that we eat.

My kitties love Kirkland brand Cat food ( from Costco) ( which I leave out all day) and then I give them a bit of canned kitty food, (any brand, as long as its fish flavored, they hate the meat varieties) for breakfast... and once is a while a little soft kitty treat.

You mean we're supposed to be buying her food?!?!?!?

We just let the dog out a couple of times a day when there are rabbits or squirrels in the back yard.

I made mole last night... and of course.. fat-cat Mike loved it... tried to lick the plate clean. I stopped him though, b/c I dunno if there's anything in there that would be bad for him.

My geriatric, senile Jack Russels were raised strictly on high-end dry dog food. When people commented on it I'd tell them that is sure as heck makes house training easier if the dogs eat only that. Now one of them needs science diet k/d in the can (doesn't have enough teeth for dried!). They are allowed to be the "pre rinse cycle" on our plates after supper -- AFTER I've scraped them. For treats they get Old Roy, though! The stuff looks like an old felt hat that's been torn up, but they love it, it is cheap, and it doesn't cause gastric distress!

Before a party I tell my incoming guests that anyone who feeds my dogs chocolate WILL be responsible for finding an emergency vet, taking them there, and paying the bill. Fang nearly died from chocolate once and that isn't happening again.

My dogs also love non-citrus fruit, and their vets over the years have encouraged us to feed them that as treats as well. So when hubby has his diabetic snack of an apple, pear, or pieces of melon, the dogs each get a bite or two.

My cairn terrier will eat anything. She will stick her snout down your throat for strawberries. But, we will never again feed her eggs, or dairy products. Folks should know, we did the hard way, there is a reason for dog food.
