Even after scouring the web, I haven’t found a definitive answer to this. Some people claim cats love the scent of olives because of their saltiness. On the other hand, others claim they love the scent because it resembles naturally-occurring cat pheromones. There are several theories as to why cats may be drawn to the scent of olives, but none have been definitively confirmed.
One theory suggests that cats are attracted to the saltiness of olives. Cats tend to have a natural craving for salty foods (let’s not forget catnip). However, this theory does not explain why cats may be particularly drawn to the scent of olives specifically. There are many other salty foods that they could potentially be attracted to.
Another theory suggests that cats may be drawn to the scent of olives because it resembles naturally-occurring cat pheromones. This theory suggests that olives may contain chemicals that are similar to those found in a cat’s own scent. It could explain why they are attracted to it but honestly, I don’t know.
Despite these theories, there is still no definitive answer as to why cats may be drawn to olives. While scientists are hard at work somewhere trying to figure this out, please enjoy this hilarious video featuring a cat that drops to the floor with happiness every time his owner makes him smell a can of olives.
