A Purrfect Thanksgiving Dinner for #TeamAllie

It's just days away from Thanksgiving, and Allie's totally into the holiday this year.


She's put in her order for Thanksgiving Day Dinner... quite literally, as you can see!
But then she heard Merrick had Turducken in their Purrfect Bistro line.

Since we've never bothered to serve this delectable dish at any of our Thanksgiving dinners prior to today, well...she insisted on taste-testing this as well.


Faraday: So Allie, uh...can I try it too?


Allie: Honestly, Faraday. Do you think just anycat can select the best foods to offer our guests? This calls for a sophisticated palate. Anycat that still plays "pull my paw" is automatically disqualified.

Faraday: *grumbles* But Mommy says it's polite to share.


Allie: Tell you what, Brat. I'll share this dish with you.


Faraday: Uhm, Allie. Cats don't eat cranberry sauce. Even if it is homemade.

Allie: Well, she garnished it with catnip. Then said something about it "adding color" to the photos, so deal with it.


Faraday: Catnip?!? Why didn't you say so??? **faceplant**

Allie: While Mother's busy hiding the pumpkin pie from a certain Tonkinese Terror, baking her fresh challah and 'from-scratch' stuffing, I'll be digging into some delish entrees from Merrick! Won't you join me?


This season we're very thankful that Allie is well on her way to her ideal weight, with her pounds lost in a slow and safe manner while eating a food she loves.

We three kitties are also very thankful to have a warm and loving home, and we wish the same for the many homeless pets across the world who are not so fortunate this holiday.

May they soon enjoy warmth and safety all their own.

  3. Allie, you are an excellent spokescat for discerning dining. I wanted to make Challah stuffing but some male person got all primitive on me, bought a grinder, ground his own flour and now I had to make whole wheat bread for the stuffing. Ick if you ask me but a certain male person is happy

  6. OMC, we never saw the video of Faraday and the pie. That's too funny! We are all for the whipped cream, but we have never actually managed to taste the pie to find out whether it's good, but Faraday answered that question!

  17. You look wonderful Allie. TW bought that Thanksgiving Dinner by Merrick one year for Christmas. I think I ate it but I haven’t seen it since. Their Gramma’s Pot Pie was a fail.

  18. Wow, that's some fine china and silver you're eating from. We were just gonna eat some Fancy Feast turkey and giblets for Thanksgiving, but now we're gonna insist on some Turducken. :)

  19. that pie video is priceless... I can see why you took it :) Well Allie might not be sharing now, but I bet she will on Thursday :)

  20. Lots of healthy yummies at your house. MySquatty the Stray likes the Merrick canned food but Raven is too finicky to try it. Maybe she's waiting for fresh catnip garnish.

  21. Did you like the turducken? We just love that stuff. We put a pic of ours on the blog last Sunday. Mommy is doling it out slowly, so we can enjoy.
    Have a great day, furriends!
    XOXO

  23. Well, thanks for this post. My cats saw it and now they are demanding Mom go and buy them their own turkey dinner since my sisters and I have the dog turkey dinner in a can. You cats!

  24. It does appear as if both the humans and the kitties at your house will be feasting. We hope you have a most wonderful Thanksgiving. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
