How many times have you heard me lamenting about Maxwell's refusal to eat wet cat food? I even threatened to ship him to his Aunt Connie for an Intervention, he was that stubborn.
I've been keeping quiet about it (because I wanted to make sure it was really happening) but something huge happened back in August. Who knows how long it had been going on, but that's when we noticed.
Maxwell was stealing Faraday's dinner. His wet food dinner.
|"Guilty as charged, Momma."|
Right now, I'm all about keeping him interested in wet food - the good, grain free, no plant protein kind. So when I saw there was a campaign on Purina's new Muse® Natural Cat Food, I wanted to see what it was all about.
I ran over to PetSmart - that's the only place you can find Muse - to take a look.
Here's what I found:
- Muse is a wet food. Period. (love!)
- There are 5 different types of recipes: Chowder, in Broth, with Toppers, in Gravy and Paté.
And to be honest, I owe the little guy. Who knows how long Maxie's been stealing his dinner? No wonder the poor thing was acting starved!
I picked up several cans of chicken, turkey and salmon.
Here's what I found on the label:
- Only seven ingredients (excluding vitamins & supplements) - and the first 5 are meat protein, real fish and poultry.
- Grain free, and no pea protein, which I really love.
- No artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, and 100% complete and balanced for adult cats.
Purina states that "Natural has never been so delicious. Put Muse to the test with our clean plate guarantee."
Well, if you insist....
|Um, Allie? That's not terribly ladylike. ...Allie?|
|Max: "Uh, Allie? Can I have a taste?" |
Allie: "Get your OWN, this is MINE."
|Faraday: "M-m-m. Move it, Maxie. Incoming!"|
1 photo = 1,000 dirty words. Calm down, Maxie, I'll get Faraday his own. And refill yours.
|Um, Maxie? I know you're a bit miffed, but be careful.|
Your face might freeze that way.
That was taken a week ago. They're all still happily chowing down - as long as I run interference to make sure everyone gets their fair share.
Purina states that "With Muse you don’t have to choose between natural nutrition and food that tastes great. Your cat can have both when you choose Muse." I would agree. I like the ingredients, and they obviously love the flavor. As the mom of one very fickle and stubborn kitty, I also know how tastes can change overnight. Given that that there are two dozen varieties, I like that this gives me options.
The Mystery of the Missing Food
That was the paté. What about the Toppers?
Their initial response not surprising, as under the topper it was shredded food in gravy and none of our three have ever been fans of the shreds.
But when I came back an hour later...clean plate.
Any guesses as to who might have eaten it?
