Default Why is my cat eating people food from the counter now?

I have a 5 y.o. female cat. She has always eaten dry cat food (and occasionally wet food, but very rarely). She has recently begun getting on the counter in the kitchen and eating people food. She has done this before in the past, but only if we leave something out, like a tasty meat. Now she's eating anything on the counter, such as last night when we caught her tearing a hole in the bread bag. I know she's eating her dry food because we have to watch her around the other cat and the dog. We've not changed her food or started giving her less, so I'm not sure what's up. We are doing our best to keep our food put up, but the bread incident was a first for us.Any thoughts about why she is doing this?

It is possible she is getting tired of her dry food or isn't getting enough of a certain food group like Grains/meat etc. Look for a food that has all the food groupes the first or second ingredient should be a meat then a grain and a vegetable. If it has lots of weird stuff on it don't buy it

Maybe she's developed a taste for it. We keep our cats off the counters, but that doesn't stop them from begging when one of us is in there. Just don't let her eat chocolate. That's poison for cats.
