Cats don't eat sweets, cakes and waffles - their taste buds are not able to sense and appreciate sweet stuff.

So, conclusion, this bunny is up to something more nefarious than seduce our feline overlords.
My Maine Coon cross, Ole, loves sweets. Even simple frostings that don't have other flavorings added. He also loves biscuits. Plain, not buttered. His fovorite snack is immitation crab. He turned his nose up at the real thing and the only reason I can think of is that the immitation is sweetened a bit.

...this reminds me of a thread started a long time ago when I used to post on the amdmb motherboard forums....
Someone started a thread with the question - "What does the word [bump] mean in a thread?"....well, folks picked up on this and the thread ran on for years and years and had a ridiculous amount of replies, most of which had nothing to do with the original question. It was epic!
All the replies to the original post started with the word [bump] of course ...which actually brings the thread to the top of the forum.
It might actually still be going if the site is still alive...
[bump] such a little challenge - fits well with this thread.

If not already, then a diet of sweets surely will make him/her a big cat soon enough. Said diet probably also would significantly advance feline diabetes and urinary problems, and chop the expected lifetime in half.

Beer and squirrels are frequently mentioned on PF. Here's a dumb news article that connects the two:

19 lbs. He needs to loose just a bit, perhaps. When he was just a bit over 18 lbs the vet said his weight was okay for his size. ( he can stand on his hind legs and just barely peekover the edge of the kitchen counter, and can easily pull things off of it with his paw.

Yeah, except for the immitation crab which he gets daily (the vet says that's okay) he only gets those things occasionally, and in very small quantities. He has had a urinary tract infection in the past due to struvite crystals so he's been on a diet of Science Diet Prescription CD for a few years now.

Feed him a more natural diet: cats are meant to eat raw meat, etc., feeding them industrial food, especially dry food (cats just don't drink enough) is like having a human eat at McD on a daily basis, and that for a lifetime.

#1 cat Sydney has a thing for chocolate. Mostly she is an indifferent eater and has never had a weight problem, long and slim as ever. But don't ever leave an open candy bar on the desk. She will swoop in totally silent and be gone with it and you will never know she was there. I suspect either teleportation or mind control.

Oh, never mind, that's too horrible to contemplate.
