Our Cat Likes People Food

Kat | Oct 19, 201205:26 AM     629

Is this weird? We adopted the cat a few months ago and while he eats hs pet food, he hangs out in the kitchen whenever I am in there and sits at my feet when he sees me eating. The cat LOVES gravy; he smells it cooking and meows piteously until I give him a little. He also loves ham and meows for that. I found him eating out of my son's discarded bowl of honey nut cheerios ( but he doesn't like milk alone!). I know this isn't a pet health board, but should I not let him eat these things? Do any of you let your cat eat people food?
