This is definitely our Keku…
He’d totally stuff his face, still have it stuffed, and mumble “Any chance there’s more of that chicken?”
I always secretly wished nutritional labels had this. . .and honestly, I’m kind of felling better that I’m not alone!
It goes without saying that cats are particular…pretty much in every regard. They are incredibly discerning when it comes to food, for one thing.
Oh yes, as babies they ate their broccoli and snap peas – but nowadays its “no, no thank you. Call me when you have shrimp!”
We don’t even have to unwrap the seafood – the mere hint of fishy fragrance and I’m suddenly swarmed by furry black beasts. God forbid they grab a hold, it’s growl central… (Not that I can blame them – my husband makes a mean stirfry!)
I guess I can’t really complain, though – my boys’ nutrition is top-notch! They care about portions (that’s by default – Keku would gladly wolf down a blue whale, provided it smelled remotely edible.)
They also eat clean (also a function of mum, but a girl has to make sure her boys are fit and healthy so they can frolic to their hearts’ content without issue!) They love protein – egg whites, chicken, and shrimp are favorites – just like, you guessed it… Mum. ❤ Way to go, boys!
The only real trouble with it is that I go to sit down in my chair and there’s a cat in it, thinking it’s his seat for dinner…
Word of this newbie just came my way (and honestly, I suppose it was only a matter of time, given the popularity of veggie stix, right?!) I personally love fresh fruit because they are LOADED with fiber and good ol’ H2O, making for a filling snack. But…sometimes you just want some crunch with your “sweet” and you don’t want to reach for a Nestle Crunch bar. . .
Enter these fry-shaped snacks, which come in three flavors:
The stats for Snack Factory’s Fruit Sticks are as follows (for 0.75 oz. (about 2/3 cup)):
While they aren’t a sub for fresh fruit, they are – at least – a better option than grabbing some candy. I am thrilled that companies are trying to be a little bit more health conscious these days, and offer more options for anyone wanting to proactively head off a craving. These are available in Walmart, Kroger, and Giant Eagle, among other retailers. You can also snag them on Amazon, which is always a great option when a product is new (and slowly making its way into stores!)
Don’t I know this dilemma!
