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…

Does asparagus make cat pee smell?

One of the biggest questions in science today is : does asparagus make cat pee smell? So in our attempt to win the Nobel Prize, we try Applaws Chicken Breast with Asparagus in Broth. Simple and straightforward chicken and asparagus What does the human think: Well… simply put it tastes like hospital food. I do…

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 ?  ūü§ĒTastes 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,…

Siegfried, and some Rachael Ray

Today we have a guest taster, Siegfried! And we’ll be getting all nutrish… with Rachael Ray Nutrish Super Premium Wet Food for Dogs, Hearty Beef Stew.  What does the human think: Well… on appearance it’s tops. Nicely cut potatoes and carrots. Fresh looking peas. The veg tastes nice. The meat is real not pressed protein…

Kitty meatballs: Freshpet

Today we boldly go into new frontiers: the refrigerator aisle and try Freshpet Vital Chicken & Beef.  What does the human think:  These fresh from the refrigerator little nuggets taste like a cross between a liver dumpling and meatball. They are little grainy. Overall, these taste like the classic German dish: leberknodel. I like these…

Nothing like early Thanksgiving! 

Months from Thanksgiving the craving starts to set in… turkey, stuffing, gravy, gluttony… Interesting enough Proximo has the same cravings, but he likes a side of spiders instead of cranberry. Today’s review is Merrick Thanksgiving Day Dinner.  What does the human think:  Opening the can you get a smell of Thanksgiving leftovers– warmish meaty starch….

Kitty Treat Tuesday: Applaws 

Today’s treat is a dinner treat Applaws Chicken Breast with Pumpkin in Broth. Super corny name. Let’s see if it gets applause.  What does the human think: This 3 ingredient dish is simple and good. I would say it would be great for someone with high blood pressure. Actually, yeah, it’s probably way better for…

Battle of Wellington 

The Battle of Wellington is a surprising taste skirmish. It pits Merrick’s Beef Wellington vs Fredric Maryland’s Hooch and Banter beef Wellington minis.  First, let’s start with the human version. Hooch and Banter’s minis are delicious. The puff pastry is crisp and the flavors pop. If I had one criticism, it would be the filet…
