Yellowfin Tuna Florentine

WARNING: NOT FOR CONSUMPTION BY HUMANS!!!
… tho you might be fooled what w/ the deluxe aqua can and the name of this prod for cats: Yellowfin Tuna Florentine in a delicate sauce w/ garden greens, part of a new line by Fancy Feast called elegant medleys. ball, my Siamese guy, is the fussiest diner on 4 legs (a condition for which I cannot be held responsible, since he was already that way when I adopted him from the shelter), so I’m always trying to find food that’ll please His Nibs. but doesn't this seem totally stupid? what cat gives a sh*t about whether he’s eating yellowfin or albacore?? yet here’s the sick thing: ball looooved this. loved its creamy sauce, its spinach shreds, ate all the #$& yellowfin in the bowl. but here's a surprise not: this stuff goes for .79 vs the .50 that regular fancy feast costs

Back to people stuff tomorrow

Hmm...Your warning intrigues me. Maybe it could be fit for human consumption?

T.G., I think it's a good idea to include cat food in your diet. I also like to recycle my used teabags and of course you can always find a second, third, even fourth use for a sheet of aluminum foil.

Our cats are too busy watching TV, and will not be fed this stuff. They will have to stay with Shrimp Sheba and Ocean Whitefish IAMS. I'm not spending more per pound on meat for a cat then I do for myself!


BTW, I thought I was the only one in Texas who knew what 'his nibs' referred to! Finally, I can talk English again and not be looked at like some kind of ferener! I am still working on postprandial, though... starting with my wife.

clairevoyant, methinks that no one, not even Twisted Dog, knows more than you, who knows all (and knows it before everyone else!), even when the topic is "what dogs eat". but hey, that's just a guess on my part. whaddo i know

DOGS HAVE INCREDIBLY SOPHISTICATED PALATES AND CAN APPRECIATE A VARIETY OF TASTES AND TEXTURES.

WHILE CATS WHINE FOR THIER FAVORITE FOODS, MUCH LIKE CHILDREN WHO WILL EAT ONLY MACARONI AND CHEESE, WE APPRECIATE THE SUBTLETIES IN ALMOST ANY DISH.

TG: Maybe you are lucky you got a picky eater from the shelter. I had some friends in New York that adopted a kitten that was found in the subway tunnels. It never got over the fear it was going to starve to death. Before they could even take food out of the fridge or the cupboards, they had to lock it in the bathroom; otherwise it would attack. Catahoulla 86, also a shelter animal, is a little picky but a big eater, who especially likes people food.

Certain (ill-bred) dogs will eat anything (and I think we all know which ill-bred dog I'm referring to). Any dog I've ever owned has had tastes that are as just as discriminating than mine.

Suggestion for both dogs and cats. Buy a container of frozen chicken livers. Defrost. Cook if you can't stand the thought of your beloved eating them raw. Either way, your animal will love you, and it is cheaper than plain or glorified fancy feast. (Also, if you elect to cook them, you might share in the meal.)

I'm glad this is a pet-friendly blog! With commenters that rescue their pets from shelters! (Except for Paris Hilton. What is she doing here?)

Jess Truhart gives good advice. My friend had a retriever that was old and becoming feeble. She began to feed the dog a raw diet and the dog revived very nicely.

Now, you know I don't have much interest in religion and tend to keep my opinions to myself, but I can't keep quiet about this yutz, Mel Gibson. He's exactly why I can't stand the goddamned christians. Always going off on the jews. It's because of jesus-loving freaks like him that we have conflict in this world. I'd love to stick my hand right up in his salad bowl and toss him on his head.

DOG KILLER MEANS, OF COURSE, THAT SHE NEVER FED HER DAMN DOG. R.I.P. TINKERBELL.

I thought Tinkerbell ended up in a Gordita with the Taco Bell dog?

So does this taste any better than Chicken of the Sea?

I'm afraid that you'll have to ask Jessica about that one. My daughter is an expert on canned chicken.

I looked for this the other day, but my store only had regular Fancy Feast. They did have Meow Mix's upscale gourmet counterpart, and I bought some. It smelled kind of good -- like stewed meow mix (which smells rather pleasant) rather than stewed innards and guts (like Fancy Feast). My cat ate it, but threw it all up a few hours later. I guess he's just not gourmet enough. He's a tabby cat. Maybe this stuff is tolerated better by the Siamese.

Good God. I hope you people are not serious about feeding cats human food and raw chicken livers. Cats need a "balanced" diet specially designed for cats. They are not like humans. They need a high protein, high salt diet. Even this "gourmet feast" that looks and smells good to humans contains stuff cats need (but humans don't) -- okay, some by-products but at least they're cooked. Raw food has parasites. Do not feed your dogs or cats raw food -- there's a reason why house pets live longer than wild dogs and cats.
