My cat is finicky, persnickety, and stubborn, especially when it comes to food. She no doubt inherited those traits from me.
At any rate, I couldn't find her 9 Lives Tuna and Egg canned cat food, so I was forced to go looking elsewhere. All of the other varieties of canned tuna did NOT have "tuna" as the first ingredient, which meant that Her Royal Fuzziness wouldn't eat it. Seeing how much the tuna food reeked, I thought that this might be a good time to make a switch.
Friskies, however, makes Turkey Strips in Real Gravy. Seeing as how a) she ate the Thanksgiving turkey along with the rest of us and b) loves anything with gravy (baked bean sauce is a favorite, along with hummus), it would be a good bet. She gobbled up that turkey. I was thinking "Woo-hoo!" So when I found Chicken Strips in Real Gravy from 9 Lives (in a considerably more reasonably-priced 4-pack), I put it in my grocery cart.
Hey, turkey tastes like chicken, right?
She has thus far refused to eat almost all of the canned chicken. She licks all the gravy off of the chicken and then leaves the rest to dry out in her little bowl. She'd go hungry before eating the damn chicken.
It's not even real chicken or real turkey. Screw the label! How can she tell the difference?
So, to express her dismay at her food options, she asked if she could express her feelings on my blog.
And without further adieu, I would like to present a public service announcement from my cat, Aria (she likes to use a French accent when speaking):

Aria thanks you for your time.
And I hope she starts to eat her freaking chicken because babe, you have three more cans of this stuff.
