Why do cats like string cheese?

Is it true that all cats love string cheese? I have two cats who are very fussy about where they want their food. One won't eat it unless it's on her plate. The other has to have string cheese. Both of them have been fed the same brand of cat food since they were weaned at six weeks old. Does anyone know why string cheese is their favorite food?

I have a cat like that. When we got him from the shelter, he was absolutely obsessed with string cheese. I couldn't figure it out at first because we never bought it. Well, I did at first, but the cat just wouldn't eat it because it had that weird smell to it. I've since bought him the same brand of canned food, and he loves it, but I still don't understand it.

I'm sure it has something to do with the smell of the cheese. They do love that odor though, so I'm sure it was an important part of their diet before.

If they are eating canned food why would they enjoy string cheese? A normal cat needs canned food, and doesn't really care much for cheese.

For them the string cheese is a toy, not a food.

My friend has a cat who also eats string cheese and thinks it's great, so that makes sense.

my dad used to have a cat that had an absolute love of string cheese (although never on her own - she loved to eat it on his finger as much as she could ) I do remember that when I was little she would always want it when we had our cheese string from a cheese cake on the table for supper, but she loved it on a saucer in her bowl even more than on her own!

My cats also love string cheese, even canned, but the one that's fussy about where she eats it only likes it from a bowl on a saucer. If it's a string cheese for her it must be fresh, in a bowl and on a saucer. And she only eats a little bit each time.

That's a really interesting fact. I've never heard of that before.

But my one has issues with canned foods, so I don't think she'd like it. She just prefers dry kibble. I was planning on getting some of this canned food, but if it doesn't really work for her, I'll probably just get the more expensive one that doesn't require refrigeration.

Well if you want something good enough for the little rascals, get the canned stuff. For some reason we just had a huge sale, 2 for $20, at Petco. We got some pretty decent brands, including the $1.00 one, I can't recall which. I've seen it on the internet for even less.

My mom just brought home a small bag of it today, and I gave a big bag to my grandkids (they're all still at their dad's, it's been a year so they're back with my brother and sisters now). My one will eat some just because she knows where it came from. My 2 year old only eats canned.

My little ones (who are now in high school) love the $1.00 stuff. I just started to get the $1.50 stuff. We used to use the $1.00 stuff, but it is much cheaper if you want to get the same brand. The $1.50 stuff is just a little better quality. I just started buying the regular sizes, and the older ones don't eat the smaller ones. The smaller ones are just too easy for them to choke on.

My mom's friend used to make her a big batch of it when she first got back in the swing of things. She always had some in her house so she'd just buy a big can. She'd pour it out for her mom, and when it was gone, she'd buy another big can.

She died from cancer a couple years ago and we've kept the tradition up to this day.

I was looking around the supermarket and saw a box of the stuff that says "BONUS" on it. The first is that it is cheaper than a gallon of milk, or 2 cans of the same size. The second is that it is "natural", i.e. a lot less toxic than corn syrup or HFCS.

The bonus part is that it is lower in carbs (though they don't mention it in the ingredients, and you still have to pay attention to that aspect, since they just cut carbs).

The second time we had her over for dinner, she made a huge pasta sauce, and put some of it on the side, saying that this was for her as a treat. The next time we had her, we told her that she had been so generous with her portion, that she shouldn't just eat it all herself. She took the extra and sd she would put it on the side.

The next time we had her, she told us she was going to hide her "extra" pasta sauce in the freezer, and come over and give us the rest in a
