Out of 16 (!) cats I have, one absolutely loves toast. I don't have any olives with me at the moment so I can't try the experiment.

i don't have any olives and never will, since no one in the house likes them.

however, all the cats are fascinated whenever my mom gets her hair permed. for the next few days, they stick their head in her hair and sniff.

but they hate the smell of nail polish or nail polish remover. go figure.

I just tried the experiment with my cat ( she was sleeping) and she has sniffed and then licked the olive.

I don't have any olives in the house, I'll get some next time I go to the store. Question- does the vinegar in them scare the cat away? Do you have to wash it and have only the pure olive smell to get this reaction? Oh, just remembered- last night I was eating some olive pimento cheese spread and my kitty came up and begged and licked some off a cracker. I don't know if it was the cheese or the olive or both.

OMG! You've had told me the weirdest things about your cats

I asked you to that experiment 'cos the other day we were eating a dish my sister cooked and had olives. (I really don't like olives much) . So my mom ate them and left the seeds on the table. Later guggi jumped over the table and started meowing and licking the seeds! We were laughing and surprised. Then my sister grabs the olives jar and pours a little vinegar on a plate and lets guggi sniff it. He starts meowing excitedly again and follows my sister until she gives him the plate. He licked all the vinegar and ate the olives she gave him, and then he started to roll on the floor and rub himself into the plate After a minute, he just lay there, like in ecstasy, and from time to time he rubbed against the plate

Weird way to find out your cat likes olives (or the vinegar flavor)

I didn┤t wash the olive and I think that was the vinegar but who knows , sometimes cats are just
