No one will argue with the fact that cats are predators. Every year, 70 million domestic and almost as many stray cats are killed by billions of living creatures. But, despite the passion for all kinds of freshly caught game and fish and meat special food, many cats will not give up bakery products. Why does bread arouse the appetite of domestic predators? The answer was simple.
The solution was found on the Tumblr website, whose users began to share evidence of an unhealthy hobby of their and other people's pets with fresh pastries. There were plenty of similar photos and videos — cats not only stole bread from packages, but also boldly engaged in battle with the owners and outsiders in general who tried to get in the way of the coveted loaf or slice of pizza.
The site users offered a lot of hypotheses in the comments, but all of them were either comic in nature, or did not stand up to any criticism from science. However, the collective discussion of the bread-cat phenomenon was not in vain and the secret of fluffy gluttons was revealed.
One of the users reported that cats like not the bread itself, but the yeast on the basis of which it is baked. It is known that the fresher the loaf, the stronger the yeast aroma is felt, so cats' paws shake precisely at the sight of the freshest bread. This is absolutely certain, because neither cupcakes, nor cookies, nor even eclairs with custard do not cause such culinary longing among pets.
And why do cats need yeast, you ask? The educator from Tumblr explained this by saying that the smell of yeast is incredibly appetizing for cats, well, about like valerian. To make sure of the harmony of this theory, try to offer Murka or Barsik not fresh bread, but just yeast. In most cases, this product will appeal to the animal, although there is information that the reaction can be individual, up to complete rejection.
By the way, if you were so moved by the sight of a cat eating a bun that you decided to transfer the animal to a vegetarian diet, remember that this is illegal, at least in the UK.
