Does your cat eat better than you do? Some of these kitties at the recent Santa Monica Cat Show do. I asked their respective humans what is the fanciest, tastiest, nommiest thing they feed their cats. Keep reading to learn what they said, or 10 Cats Who Eat Better Than You.

10. Raw beef heart:

This cat is a Japanese bobtail. Her owners Shirley Jensen and Zaneta McCain feed her raw beef heart, chopped up. Does it satisfy the cat's inner serial killer? Does anything?

9. Grilled chicken with cream cheese and spinach:

This cat, Cupid, is an 11 month-old Cornish Rex. He steals spinach leaves when his owner Lisa Kuta is eating salad. He eats only the leaf part and discards the stem. Kuta knows he's been stealing spinach when she sees stems lying around the house. "He's a little thief," she says.

8. Freeze-dried duck heart:

Beamer and Calypso are Oriental Shorthair cats. Their owner Dick Olsen feeds them bites of duck heart. Nevermind where the ducks come from.

7. Baby food:

"Only Beech Nut," says owner Sibyl Zaden. "Never Gerbers. Because Beech Nut contains only chicken and fluid and no cornstarch." Her cat is named Prom Queen. The cat's mother is named Drama Queen. Of course it is.

6. Lean cuts of New York steak and turkey, and Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia:

One of these cats is named Effphasis. She's a Somali. Both the cats are. I think. It wasn't entirely clear because their owner, Sara, did not speak. Her friend or maybe husband, the guy on the left, spoke for her. "They know what costs $3 a pound," he noted. The ice cream is for dessert. Obviously.
