Your tips for feeding four cats while I'm out of town?

Overnight is one thing, but how can I make sure my four feline snowflakes get proper nutrition while their humans are off on a three-day cross-country jaunt? Given we've got one cat with food intolerances, one super-picky princess, one food-snatcher, and one with what the vet has described as a "highly efficient colon" (meaning she needs wet food every day), things are going to need a bit more consideration and prep-work than just leaving a big bowl of crunchies out. Please, kittyfolks, share your wisdoms! [more inside]

Are humans more naturally disposed to eat certain foods over others?

Most animals (herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores alike) seem to eat and/or prefer food from a very limited set of options. But humans eat just about everything. Are there foods that humans are more biologically disposed to eat? Alternatively, are there other animals that eat foods as widely diverse as humans do?
