There’s some old thing about putting butter or margarine on your cat when you move which will stop it from running away or getting lost. I don’t believe it is true myself, but we once did it with our Big Cat when she was very young. She now loves both butter and margarine. You can’t make a sandwich without the kitty hanging around under your feet looking all please butter me. In fact she can tell when you’ve taken out the margarine container and immediately runs to the kitchen from any spot in the house.
I spoke to our vet about it and he said that it isn’t a bad thing in moderation, especially as the big kitty seems to keep her weight regulated to the point of looking a bit scrawny. I try to fatten her up with bacon, ham, roast chicken skin and tuna but she never gets bigger than 5 kilos. However if I don’t feed her the bacon, ham, roast chicken skin and tuna, she can drop below 5kg fairly quickly and you start to feel her bones more than I like or feel comfortable with so I regularly keep up the treats.
Once she has eaten a treat, she then runs around the house all happy and kinda freaky like. She’s an odd creature in many ways and this is by no means the oddest of her behaviours.
