While I wait for Mom to open up a can of my favorite Fancy Feast for breakfast this morning, I thought I’d whine a bit about FOOD in general!
I’ve always had a sensitive tummy. It started back when I first came to live with Mom and Dad. The shelter told them to feed me hard kibble because they’d tried canned stuff and I’d been sick, sick, sick. In fact I was STILL sick the first few days when I got to my new house – but Mom found a Friskies hard kibble that I really loved and soon I was right as rain. In fact, I HATED canned food and refused anything Mom tried in the canned department – although I would drink the water from human canned tuna – in fact I loved that!! Anyway, I ate Friskies for years and years – until all of a sudden, over a year ago or so, Friskies just stopped making my favorite kind! I was devastated – I even went on a hunger strike (which didn’t work so well)……..How could they just STOP making my favorite meal???????????? Mom even wrote to the Friskies people to ask WHY?! Of course she never heard back. Poor Mom – she probably spent hundreds of dollars trying everything on the shelves of every pet store in the entire state trying to find something I wouldn’t turn my nose up at! She even tried to get me to eat raw food which would (so she says) be the very best thing for me to eat………..NO WAY BABY……….not for this guy………
One thing I WOULD eat was the semi-crunchy cat treats that come in those little bags. I also eventually started eating some canned food like Fancy Feast – but only if Mom would mix lotsa water in it so I could slurp it up (loudly of course).
I think I’ve finally forgiven Friskies for removing my favorite crunchy food from their lineup of food. It took a while, but now I’m eating some canned wet food along with crunchy cat treats. I still have digestive issues (my doctor says that’s just ME though because I’m a nervous type guy) but I’m very healthy, and not overweight (I love my doctor!). He even said my weird combination of super wet canned food and cat treats was perfectly fine for me. It wasn’t easy getting to this “good place” though with my food – – – – after ten years of eating just one kind of Friskies hard food – and loving it – it suddenly disappeared and I didn’t understand why (neither did Mom!). But we adjusted…………..kicking and screaming (and screeching) but we did it.
Oh goodie!!! Mom just called me to the kitchen. I have this feeling it’s gonna be Salmon Feast (with tons of water of course)………off I go! Hope your breakfast is as yummy as mine is gonna be……..
