My cat Wicky would always do this. One year at Thanksgiving, we had all gathered around the table and were serving up tofurky (there was real turkey too) and other goodness when Wicky jumped on the table. We thought she would head straight toward the meat, but no, not our Wicky. She went straight toward the salad and stole a piece of baby spinach with ease. We were shocked (maybe proud since we are almost all vegetarians) as she stole away to eat her prize.
