Kitty treat Tuesday: Ever chew on a rubber ball?

I hate giving bad reviews, especially when I had high hopes! This treat review is Awesome Possum. What does the human think: For a moment I turned into a train… chew chew chew chew. Bad joke but you get the point. Never broke down this bite sized nugget of possum. What did Proximo think: Poor…

Delish-fest 2017

Changing from the norm of a one by one review and we’ll tackle two of Rachael Ray’s Nutrish Natural Food for Cats. What does the human think: It is insane how much these taste like the human dish they are supposed to mimic. The purrcata absolutely tastes like chicken piccata! From mouth feel to flavor!…

A salty treat from the sea

Today we review Applaws Tuna with anchovies and seaweed in broth. I see the seaweed but has the seaweed seen me… What does the human think: Tuna with a balanced salt finish. Sort of frustrates me the packs of tuna I buy for lunch don’t have this complexity! What does Proximo think: Delving in to…

The Maltese Cat

In the poorly received sequel to the Maltese Falcon, Sam Spade searches the streets of Valletta for a stolen cat statue. I’m sure I’ve seen a Maltese Cat somewhere around here!! (Insert Bogart accent) Ok. Maybe not. But if one is looking for cats, culture, and cuisine… Go Malta!! Valletta, Malta will be the European…

Kitty Treat Tuesday: speak!

Haven’t done a kitty treat Tuesday in awhile. Today’s treat is a special one: Orijen Tundra. (Even the bag is tasty) What did the human think: boat, goat, venison, Arctic char… freeze dried… say no more… handing out his treat went like “one for you, two for me”. It would be funnier if I was…

A feast too fancy???

Life is full of surprises. I think I’ll just leave it with that teaser for today’s review of Tiki Cat after Dark Chicken and Quail Egg. What did the human think: With no expectations, I opened the can was totally intrigued. A brothy mix of chicken pieces and parts (heart, liver, gizzard). Way more broth…

G-day mate

Wandered into the wonderland that is Kriser's Natural Pet Store… imagine that first time you walked into a Whole Foods… it's like that, in a good way! Anyway, not sure which goody to start with… so let's go with with an honest to goodness star: Koha Wild Kangaroo Pate. What did the human think: I've…

Kitty Treat Tuesday: crunchy fish

Treats are always fun… and for a few treats Proximo will legitimately listen. See the high five in header photo…. Today's treat is Blue Kitty Cravings with Real Tuna. What does the human think: This is an easy one. It literally tastes like crunchy fish bait… Full stop. What does Proximo think: With a slight…

Lamb-tastic!

Proximo has been off the pate circuit for a few months… we try to freshen things up a bit with Nature’s Variety Instict Lamb Formula. What did the human think ?  đź¤”Tastes like a grainy brauschweiger one gets at the local Safeway.  That’s not a knock, I was surprised how good it tasted. But that…

Kat shares his Muse experience 

Proximo thought Kat’s, his inside-outside cat buddy, diet of dry kibble and bunnies was a bit boring. So he sent over some Purina Muse Chicken and Salmon. Any chicken and salmon is pretty much the gateway food for kitties. So, what did Kat think?? What did the human think? It is real chunks of chicken…

Wings… the great Mid-West

Sort of a review, sort of a treatise…  I find myself sitting in CLE airport waiting to head back to the rat race of D.C.  Not really hungry but there is a primal call for proper Mid-West wings, so I stop at Bar Symon… The anatomy of a properly cooked wing: crispy skin, juicy flesh,…
