Most cats proudly bring home little “gifts” of mouse corpses and bird heads or random pieces of garbage they’ve found in their travels.
For perhaps the first time ever, a cat – named Hobnob – brought home a gift that was actually enticing: a cheese omelette. Amber J. Cobb, Hobnob’s owner, posted the following note on the wall of the Facebook group Crazy Cat Ladies in April: “Speechless, Hobnob has brought the usual cat things home mice, bird but this morning he came through the cat flap making enough noise to wake the dead and presented us with a warm cheese omlette, goodness knows where he stole it from xx.”

While Cobb told The Mirror she has no idea where Hobnob procured the breakfast entrée, she acknowledged her cat has a mischievous streak, admitting he has a history of “going into people’s houses and having to be chased out.” Hobnob is a rescue cat, who Cobb described as “very loving and well worth the trouble he has caused.”
We’re left with one burning question: Did Cobb eat the omelette?
“The omelette is in the bin and thankfully he hasn’t brought anything else strange home!”
Seems like a missed opportunity.
