Which pets lack a sweet taste receptor?

dogs
cats
hamsters
house rabbits
Domestic cats are neither at­tract­ed to, nor show avoid­ance of the taste of sweet car­bo­hy­drates and high­-in­ten­si­ty sweet­en­er­s. Record­ings from cat taste nerve fibers demon­strate re­spons­es to salty, sour, and bitter stimuli, but show no response to sugars. Other than that, the sense of taste in cats appears similar to that of other mammals.
