Food For Thought

I've had some extra time lately so I've been reading the diaries of The Cats That Came Before. TW doesn't know that all her cats have passed along diaries/journals of what life was like while they were alive. Long before blogging, they had the foresight to write these journals. How pawsome is that? Of course, these journals can only be seen and read by other cats such as myself.


Please excuse the poor quality of the scan. The photo is hunnerts of years old (like TW). I'm lucky it didn't biodegrade before I could scan it!


I've been finding out some fascinating facts from the diaries of Faith and Chizzy (short for Machismo). For instance, they tell tales about cat food cans that were 6 full ounces, not the 5 ounce cans some of you are lucky enough to get today. Sometimes, there would be sales where these cans would be 5 for $1! Can you believe that! And, are you ready for this one? Pathmark used to sell sardines in gellee that contained whole fishy chunks. Think of all the beneficial Omega-3s. OMC! Can you imagine going to your plate to find a fishy head with the eyes staring back at you! I don't know about you but that sounds amazingly nommy and appetizing to me! Can you just see it! Apparently, according to the journals, the humans didn't think it was so appetizing when they opened the can first thing in the morning. Hey, there's no accounting for humans' taste. I bet your humans are all grossed out reading this. Apparently, this food was so rich and fishy that Chizzy was beset by urinary crystals and had to be put on a special sardine-free diet.

TW, can I have the food with the eyes?? Yeah, that one!

Today, lots of premium brands like Tiki Cat, Avoderm, Wellness and even Whiskas make sardine cat food but is it all chopped up or do the eyes have it? I want my food to only have eyes for me! How about you?

VOTE FOR ME
Please vote for me in the Petfinder.com Luckiest Pet contest so I can win green papers for my favorite charity. You can vote once a day from each mobile device. Those furrends from out of the U.S. can pretend they've moved to New York and become a Time-Warner subscriber but don't tell them I told you that. In fact, Pop says he can vote more than once a day from his work computer. Again, you didn't read that here. A great big THANK YOU to those who have been voting every day. I can't believe I'm not in the Top 10 and a bunch of DOGS are.

How cool is it that you've found the lost diaries of those cats that came before. Surely there's more dirt you can dig up. ; )

Hi CK, long time reader first time poster. Not really, I just always wanted to say that. The HuMom is voting 3 times so far. Once by Twitter, once by Facebook and once by email. She's going to get the boy/man to do some voting too. She just needs to see how that will work out since she's already using his email address. We'll do our best to get you past the dogs!

Mom tried feeding us sardines one time. She thought the oil would be good for our coats. You know what? We didn't eat them. We took one sniff and walked off.

Hi CK...Momz remembers those chunky eyeball sardines...nommy for cats, yucky for momz

I can't vote for you cause Petfinder requires me to choose a "" (for some dumb reason) and we don't have one...No cable or dish here...Why would they need something like that in a pet contest?
