Dear Leila,

Sinking teeth and claws in Mummy's brand new yellow handbag that cost her a fortune will not help you in your campaign to have your cat food exchanged for another brand or flavour. As I have told you before: you have had all the brands and flavours the local supermarkets stock, and the fact that you're not keen on any of them, means that you have a problem.

I suggest you learn to like salmon and sardines.

LOL! I'm afraid Leila's behaviour is rather typical for a feline ;-)

Hope your new handbag isn't too damaged!

It'll live ...It was actually kind of funny, the way she went at it when it hadn't even been in the house 5 minutes.

And I may have misunderstood her intentions. She may have just wanted to protect us all from the Yellow Danger lurking in the hall...

Salmon and sardines? I think I've figured out why your cat won't eat supermarket food. ;-)

Salmon and sardines?

It's a flavour of cat food. And it stands for all flavours that Leila doesn't like, which is basically any and all. Although sometimes, she does. Like one, I mean. She likes confusing me like that.

Ooooh. That makes more sense. I thought at first your cats were eating gourmet. :-P

lol silly, fickle kitty!

I too know the frustration of finicky feline eating habits *sigh*. Instead of the overpriced stuff we've tried most recently, she's now started to eat the dog's food.

Weird cat!

Dog food? Weird cat, indeed -- although once upon a time, I used to have a cat who'd rather snack on peanut butter sandwiches than eat his kitty nosh...

We had a dog once who would only eat cat food.

Silly dog!

Personally I totally believe that our cat is capable of reading supermarket bills - if any flavour of catfood happens to be on special offer, even if it was yesterday's favourite brand and the only thing that he would eat for the past week, it immediately becomes so disgusting that he doesn't know how you could possibly think he would dain to eat it!

That's my problem with Leila's eating habits, exactly! Whenever I think "finally, I've found a brand/flavour she likes", it instantly becomes the vilest food I could ever think to serve her.

And she's stubborn, too: she'll happily go 4 days without eating (complaining loudly all the while, of course) just to see me cave -- then she'll take two or three bites of my next choice, before starting the game anew. She drives me up the wall...and yet, I love her to bits.

Make her eat own brand! That'll teach her!
Apr. 4th, 2005 06:23 am (UTC)
Own brand! She'd rather die -- I know, I've tried. 4 Days, the bloody cat wouldn't touch it, and the whole house reeked of it!

The smell of cat food is the only thing i really don't like about cats.
Apr. 4th, 2005 10:58 am (UTC)
I'm not too keen on it myself...
