NOW , MOM!

Jake: Oh, I am just so mad at my mom. Yesterday she came home with two big bags from our favorite but seldom used pet store. She went on and on about how she bought us new foods and how good they were for us and how tasty they were. Lies, lies, lies. She's a big fat liar. As soon as the big hand hit the twelve and the little hand was on the five I started hollering for MY stinky goodness. Hollering is very important. I'm the only one who knows how to do it and I do it well. She comes in and excitedly opens up a can of the new stuff. I'm thinking, "Good Mom, good girl. C'mon move just a little bit faster. OK, put it down, put it down. Me firs,t me first." And then I stuck my muzzle in it and take a big chomping bite...BLUCK, BLUCK, BLUCKITY, BLUCK. I ran out of the kitchen with my tail between my legs. I think she was trying to poison me. So I give her 30 mins. or so to see that I wasn't going to eat the crap and then I started hollering again. "Where's my Max Cat Gourmet Classics Salmon and Whitefish Entree, please"? But then Mom did something unexpected, gone was the 'OK honey I know that your hungry.' And in it's place was, "Get your butt in here and eat this food. I paid a fortune for it." And it was the same exchange between us for hours. With her adding tidbits like, "I bought a case of it," and "I bought the 13 oz size." Now I ask you kitty friends. Is any of this my problem? SHE bought the wrong food and won't admit her mistake. And that kissface Sophie didn't help by eating a few bites. So kittyfriends can you help argue my case. Tell my mom that she needs to feed me the RIGHT stinky goodness RIGHT NOW!

Mom here: The new food is Innova's EVO chicken and turkey canned food. I feed them all a can last month as a taste test and they gobbled it down. But since then I bought some of the Max Cat canned food on sale and I think they're taste buds were spoiled. I'm going to give it another try after a few days without any wet food. They are eating the crunchy Innova EVO without a problem, thank goodness.

You can suggest your mommie eat your food if you don't like it. Who knows, maybe she will!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Ah yes... well you know the cheaper foods are always tastier...

Christine and FAZ said...

Oh boy, I hate it when that happens, when you don't like something you just don't like it. FAZ

Jake, maybe in time you will grow to love the new foods! At least, I hope so.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I so totally understand. I love my Evo crunchies but give me that icky stinky goodness...no way! I like Merrick stinky goodness, its really really healthy AND its really really tasty.

LL here- I'd stay strong a bit longer. Latte and Chase usually cave and given enough time between either eating the new stuff or none at all, Kaze caves too.

When my Bean went hunting to the new place, they tried to make her change my foods. She asked if they have free sample. They say no. So she would not change because she will buy something I not inclined to eat. And she only buys little cats because I don't even eat one of those, so it's pointless to buy a big can and have it all go to waste. That is the problem with some of these pet shop foods, is they don't have little cans.

Oh for heavens sake Jake, everycat knows we cannot be forced to eat something if we don't want it. Just because you ate the same thing yesterday doesn't mean you have to accept it today!! My advice is to stand your ground. Be firm and your human, afraid you will starve to death, will cave in and offer you whatever you want.

We just hate it when that happens. Sumtimes mum comes home wiv new food and we know she's trying to poison us.She sez "It's on half price offer and it's reely good expensive food, try it yoo'll love it."
If it's that good, why did they haf to put it down to half price to sell it?
