Happy St. Patrick’s Day

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…

Human Food Friday: JOTT

Taste testing cat food isn’t for everyone.  Not sure why.  But that is a conversation for another day.  Our new section profiles a spot for humans to get away and enjoy some vitals.  Today’s review is Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern (Herndon VA).   Jimmy’s is a must visit in the DMV (DC-Maryland-Virginia). Can’t really go…

Kitty Treat Tuesday: Chicken & Salmon

Every Tuesday (or so) Proximo and I will try to knock out a solid treat review. Today’s review we are taking a look at Blue Wilderness Chicken & Salmon Recipe treats. What does the human think:  The bouquet is a warm shoe.  The first taste that hits you is salt, then a bit sweet.  I don’t…

Kitty Sülze

The world of cat food is ever surprising… Today we take a look at a German classic–Sülze (but for cats). Applaws Layers Chicken with Lamb in Aspic.  Headcheese is the head/ stomach turning name in the States.  So headcheese for kitties, let’s party!!   What does the human think:  It’s pretty dense. Probably because of the…

Chicken soup that’s not so good for the soul…

Today’s review compares Nature’s Recipe Indoor Chicken and Sodexo Chicken Noodle Soup.  This review is invaluable to the Washington DC worker living on cafeteria food for lunch. What does the human think:  Sodexo’s Chicken Noodle Soup is as bland as it is salty.  Perhaps it is just better described as warm(ish) saltwater with mushy stuff….

Battle of the pâtés

Today’s review is a comparison of pâtés… Battle Nature’s Recipe chicken pâté versus Blue duck pâté… and a bonus human quality recipe…   What does the human think:  First, I’m picking a comparison of pâtés we both liked.  Purina One pâtés are on the whole gross… All of them.. Full stop…  Proximo doesn’t care for them, and neither do…
