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

Proximo’s Words of Wisdom

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

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

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

Kimchi Gochujang Grilled Cheese

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, here is our contribution to the mix… Kimchi Gochujang Grilled Cheese.     Nothing crazy in the recipe… Cheddar, parmesan, kimchi, plenty of gochujang, wheat bread… side of relish made with korean peppers…  

Who let the dog(‘)s (food) out?

A bit of a change of pace.. but perhaps a chance to discuss the merits of knowing what your animal’s food tastes like. Nature’s Recipe (which I will follow up on in future posts) really is a great cat food.  It actually tastes like food.  I picked up a pile for good

Le Diplomat Sardines vs Purina Tuna Entree

Le Diplomat, on the ever expanding food boulevard of 14th Street, Washington, D.C., is a typical Steven Starr restaurant — and that’s a good thing. What does the human think: From a Johnny-on-the-spot bartender, to balanced cocktails, to the Pittsburgh style steaks, to making a vegetarian dish tasty, this is

Rabbit flavored treat…better than Vegemite

What does the human think: The little cat treat is slightly chewy…slightly gritty.  It doesn’t really taste like rabbit, but more so generic, crude protein.  There is definitly a sweet and yeasty quality.  Which is strange, because I thought cat’s couldn’t taste “sweet”… This makes me think it is actually made as

Purina Chicken, Tomato and Pasta

Let’s start with an easy one, chicken, tomato and pasta. What does the human think: It’s not horrible… The chicken some how tastes a little fishy. Pasta passed al dente.  Slight tomato taste.  But over all, it tastes close to a human quality pasta dish.  Even better when heated for a
