  1. Our cat loved Döner Kebab more than anything else. So much we couldn’t bring it home without her going crazy 🙂 So this means that’s the best protein/fat source? Strange! ^^

    1. I thought that article was fascinating! I’m also wondering if there are different types of protein – Mr. M has an obvious preference for chicken, while Purrseidon’s favorite is fish … don’t know if this could be due to age or something … do you think Purr needs Omega 3s or something?


      1. Yes, there are different kinds of proteins. Purrseidon preferring fish shows how deeply she loves the water ^^
        I am not always sure that animals choose what is best for them. I’ve seen them eating too many silly things. Thinking of the wasabi peanut kitty once stole. She never took a second one though 😀

      2. I’ve often wondered if her preference for fish was related to her water obsession. .. am NOT surprised that the wasabi peanuts were safe after the first was swiped… however, if a bird had gotten it, they’d have come back for all!


    1. This month, M & Purr tested a pate food – M didn’t polish his plate, but Purr did that favor for him. (Usually it’s the other way.) I wondered if he objected to the texture or flavor.
