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!

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….

Proximo’s Weekend Words of Wisdom

Even Proximo can’t pass up a pint. Ok he doesn’t drink it. But he sure loves the cardboard around the can. And that toucan sure looks delicious. 

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…

Kitty Treat Tuesday: Freeze-Dried Salmon

Next up on Kitty Treat Tuesday, Merrick  Backcountry Freeze-Dried Raw Real Salmon Recipe.  That was a mouthful. My fingers are tired from typing. (**Note that the package says this treat is not for human consumption. Good thing this is the age of alternative facts.) What does the human think:  What’s nice is that it doesn’t…
