Wednesday Word—Pouches


Pouches are for cats. Am I right? Everycat knows what comes in pouches: cat food and cat treats. Can you believe that some human noms come in pouches also? I can’t wrap my paw around that. In other words: that ain’t right!

I get my grain-free Soulistic food with pumpkin soup every day around noon. When TW gets out a pouch, I know what to expect. Most of the time, it’s gut rot but it’s MY gut rot. At night, she gets out a pouch of treats for me. I only get a couple; however, it’s another example that proves if it’s in a pouch, it’s for The Cat! Can you draw another logical conclusion?

That logic held true until recently. In leiu of a raise or company-paid medical—Pop brings TW home pouches of something from his new job. She calls it the nectar of the gods. Whenever I see her kneading the pouch, I jump onto the table cos I know it has to be cat food. She says I’m wrong! Can that be? Human food doesn’t come in pouches, does it? OK, when did human food start coming in pouches and imitating cat food? Have you ever heard anything as asinine?

The pouch Pop brings home contains some human concoction called almond butter, if you can believe that. TW says it has it all over peanut butter. What the hiss? Of course, she’d like it, it costs a fortune! She’s drawn to anything that costs about a hunnert dollars a jar. TW sez it’s right up tehere with chocolate and coffee. The Cat sez Woman, next pouch I wanna see you open is the one with the Greenies SmartBites. NOW! Does your human eat stuff outta pouches?

My human eats stuff that comes out of the microwave. I'm glad I don't have to eat that slop.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

No, she doesn't eat much that comes from a pouch, but then again neither do I. I'm not a treat kind of kitty. Now, if the Gerbers came in a pouch, I'd be singin' a whole different tune, Baby! XOXOXOXO

Oh boy you should see Star jump when she hears me opening a cough drop pouch! She insists on smelling my breath to make sure it wasn't her treats too!
By the way, I know I'm late late late, but Leo nearly fainted at your offer to bribe him to tell you the secret! He was looking for kitty breath mints and begging for more information to sell to you!
Just curious, but did you ever get a replacement for your rainbow paws kitty bowl? If I missed it, I'm sorry! Been over busy here unfortunately.

Uuuhh... No. Our human never eats from a pouch. She cooks double portions of meal to be able to warm a part in microwave the next day at noon at her workplace, but she never eats ready-to-eat food. Pouches are for kitties only ! Purrs

My human eats outta pouches sometimes - can't blame her for wanting to be like us kitties!

Molly The Wally said...

No pouches here and lucky me I always get a little leftover dinner which is always cooked from scratch. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Whenever I dip into a pouch of Hershey's chocolate drops Truffles comes running thinking it's one of her treat packages :)

Brian said...

I have not noticed any of the human food pouches here CK, but now I must go snoop around!

Katie and Glogirly said...

We couldn't agree more, CK. From Cheetos to almond butter, they taunt us with every rip of the bag.
; ) Katie


ps - Glogirly LOVES almond butter!!! She found a jar though and it only costs about half a hunnert dollars.

Mariodacat said...

Pouches - I don't get anything other than treats in pouches. Not fair - I'm being deprived again. M must be withholding the good stuff that's in pouches from me and maybe eating it herself! Now I'm really upset! (flexes paws)

Flynn said...

No pouches for humans here, but mum says the almond butter sounds delicious.

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

We go through that good stuff by the truckload thanks a vegetarian hubby!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

No pouches here but that almond butter sure looks yummy!

Dash Kitten said...

No human pouch food around here. We try to avoid any human food that comes in bags and boxes because of preservatives and stuff.The doctor says fresh foods only. However, Cinco and Manna do get treats from pouches. They seem to like them quite a bit :)

L. E. Mastilock said...

You only get a couple? Our humans do that to us to. It's not like they can't go get more. The rationing is so unfair. ~Rascal and Rocco

Jobi Harris said...

If I do want to have a pouch with granola in it, I have to be very very quiet about it. Any slight sound pouch opening brings them running for treats.

Pouches? Nope....my humans don't do pouch food...the only thing in our pantry that's pouched are my treats and we make sure there's a gigantic supply of those (OR ELSE I GET CRANKY).

Hugs, Sammy

Mommy used to live near a dollar store and bought slippers there. She had to glue them together many times but they worked! But now she has trouble with swelling, and now her slippers have to be accommodating because of her diabetes. She really did wear her last pair to holes everywhere!
She wishes she could find ones that would work at the dollar store.
ps. her favorite pillow (on her bed) came from guess where? Yup. the dollar store north of here!
