I, sometimes, get these thoughts in my mind…and I just have to share.
This morning, I went to feed my three very hungry cats. You would think that they had not been fed in weeks with they way they meow and circle my legs every morning. To keep the two younger cats away from our senior kitty, I put some canned food into each bowl.
This morning, the can I selected was Mixed Grill. I immediately started thinking…what is that? It’s as if the cat food company wants to humanize my feline family by choosing these sanitized names. Mariner’s Catch. That sounds like something off of a 5-star restaurant’s menu where you and your loved one go to celebrate your annivesary.
I was thinking…what if I contacted the company and suggested a few names. Being my cats go outside (not by my choice, I must add – I volunteered to be the Goddess of Litterbox Scooping but it was vetoed by my husband), I think the names need to be a little more appropriate. So, some of my ideas would be:
For the fish loving cats – Water Wonderland. Imagine the look on your cat’s face as he faces a body of water loaded with fish. He would love to just get in there and start playing!
For the country cat – Farmyard Frenzy. That is what would happen if you let my cats loose on a farm.
For the suburban cat – Backyard Bonanza. Complete with their favorites: squirrel, vole, chipmunks, you name it.
And for the exotic cat – Serenghetti Slaughterhouse. This would be for the cats with food allergies that need to consume exotic proteins for their delicate systems.
With these canned cat food titles, any husband would be proud to pick up cat food. You can picture them at the grocery checkout, with their shoulders held back…their chests puffed out and that oh-so deeper than normal voice stating the facts: “My cat loves Serenghetti Slaughterhouse. It’s his favorite.”
