Berserk for beans

My mum made chilli for our friend Elizabeth this evening. As they sat down to eat their dinner I hopped up onto the side and saw half a tin of kidney beans. My humans are usually such spoil sports hiding the meat away faster than I can lick my lips but tonight was different. The leftovers were left in the pan and were there for the taking…

When they turned around to see what I was up to, however, they were as surprised as I was to find that actually I wasn’t interested in the pan of spicy meat but the tin half full of kidney beans!

Oh my cat! They’re delicious! I pawed a couple out and believe me they are like little beans of joy! I just LOVE them!!!

Mum told me off and shooed me off the worktop, she’s not sure if they’re bad for me so she stopped me eating any more, even though I whinged for more for AGES. I don’t think they can be any worse than my usual cat treats though surely? She told me I was naughty even though she had a big smile on her face and I’m sure she was trying to stifle a laugh. Since she didn’t offer me any treats, I think I’m entitled to make the most of a tasty opportunity!

My humans think I’m weird for loving kidney beans… What do you think?

Do you have any strange food cravings?






  1. Viva Violet says:

    Hahaha, kidney beans. My cat likes eating the tomatoes. And I have no idea why 😛


  2. Bailey, looks like you’re in the clear – according to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center website: Zoey craves everything – she loves anything fish-related, especially a bit of perfectly cooked salmon! She bellows “meeeeeooooow” after meow when we make tuna, salmon, or even fish sticks.


    • Oh thank you sooo much Aimee…. I can present this to my mum and demand more kidney beans! I’m so happy! Zoey and I would get on well, I love fishy foods too. She would love dinner on my boat! =^.^=


  3. Machatte doesn’t like any people food, except for a little bite of plain fish once in a while. But my mother used to have a cat that loved kidney beans like you do. They would have chili and they would put down a little plate for her and Mittens got some kidney beans.


  4. I eat peanuts!

  5. Kidney beans are good fuel for humans, not sure about the needs of kitty engines though.


  6. We only sniff people food. If it doesn’t come in a Fancy Feast can … =^..^=


  7. Bailey, you are so adventurous: first being a sailing cat, and now trying kidney beans! I’m sure after your Mom researches them, she’ll let you have a few for a treat – if she finds out they’re safe for kitties!

  9. Broccoli. What cat eats broccoli?


  10. Gee Bailey – I’ve never tried beans but I think I’d like to push them around on the floor with my paw if not eat them. They look fun…and kind of yummy…Thanks for the tip!

    Btw, I found your blog via Blog of The Year Award FB Group, following you here too! xx Donah


  13. Love how you paw those beans out. I’d think you were utterly mad, except that one of my cats goes crazy for baked beans, so maybe it’s not all that odd.
