OK, the WEIRDEST thing I've ever eaten is a cigarette butt. But cigarettes are supposed to be bad for you, so I won't do that anymore. I've eaten a LOT of different things that I wasn't supposed to - I'm pretty good at getting things off of counters, out of bags, just about anything. I've opened zippers and jumped up completely on the countertop from the floor to get some tasty snacks. The trick is, you have to wait for your humans to leave the house before you go on a snack hunt so they can't stop you.
