nope....my wanna be is sort of taupe/brown....and eats nothing from the floor bit chocolate and blue cheese. You can spill cheerios, drop a cracker even a piece of cheddar cheese and she will inspect it....and walk away.

I've always loved that shot!!!

I have a tabby that sits in the middle of the kitchen when he's hungry. Just shows up and parks his butt, waiting for me to notice him, as I'm noodling in the kitchen.

My white-with-brown hole can hear a crumb fall from 2 rooms away!

We used to have a cat that would come in a flash whenever we opened the drawer for the can opener. Really funny since you could open the drawer for something else and no cat. How do they know???

We have a black hole and a mostly white hole in our tiny galley kitchen. They weigh between 50-55 lbs. The white one can hear a bag of chips open from the second floor at the other end of the house.

My sister in law used to babysit for some neighbours when she was a teenager and one time, she was there around suppertime and went to get the broom to sweep the floor...the neighbours stopped her and said " you don't have to do that, we just let the dogs in".

I have had one of those going back to 2001. In March I got a new model. Boy, can black holes move fast!

I have a black cat and a grey cat - they will beg for anything I am eating but mostly just slink away when it is not something they should eat. Had another black cat the begged for crackers and chips, she's gone now and the remaining hole grabbers won't touch those things, although they beg anyway if I am eating. Didn't know cats begged like dogs. When I had two 50# Samoyed dogs - they were my "white holes in the kitchen". Ate every tiny bit of stuff that fell - especially raw pasta. Go figure. Never had to resort to a broom with them around. I miss them, as the cats wouldn't scarf a crumb, ever. Love your photo Sooz!!

No, mine is smaller and sort of tabbyish. It is also selective towards meats and shuns vegetables.

Mine is MUCH less stealthy:

Yeah, I have an assortment of "holes", but this is the biggest one:

Yes, that's our shelter dog, Molly. She's 12 now and a veteran scrounger and floor cleaner.

The cats don't even try to be stealthy, they just howl until you give them something, and then they walk away. One is very picky, but loves liver. The other is a junk food eater, he likes popcorn and chips and goldfish cheese crackers. Neither would eat anything that's dropped during food prep, though. Good thing, if they tried, Molly might eat THEM by accident, LOL.
