We think Mom made a terrible mistake. She says she knew exactly what she was doing, but I'm not so sure about that. I'll tell you what happened and you be the judge.
You see this month when Miss Sydney from Chewy asked Mom what treat we'd like to review, Mom chose one we'd never heard of before. It was called Cat-Man-Doo. Are you starting to get the idea? It said that it was dried Bonito Flakes. Mom wasn't real sure what bonito was, so she looked it up. The Google said it was a tuna type fish. Ok, we like tuna, so why not? Then it arrived.
Look at this package. First it has that clue in the name. Then it has a picture of a cat on the front of the package.
Then it says this across the top, "A natural and nutritious treat for cats". MOM.... we are dogs.
Mom said not to worry, she knew what she was doing. So last night when we went down to the garage at dinner time, she took the package of cat food with her. We all went into the yard to wait while she made dinner, except Noah. He always stays and helps Mom make dinner. He's a mama's boy. She opened the bag and this was inside, super thin flakes of tuna.
She asked Noah if he wanted to try it and he did. He said it was good.
She put some flakes on top of the kibble for the girls. Noah and Sebastian and I get special food, so she didn't give us any.
Then she let everybody in. The girls loved this fishy smelling stuff. They gobbled it up. See, this is Lola eating her Cat-Man-Doo dinner.
Tess liked her, too. The girls didn't even care that it said cat treats on the bag. They told me to be more open minded and try new things. How about that, my own daughters lecturing me.
Then she gave it a real test. She put some on Sydney's dinner. Sydney is a really really fussy eater. She doesn't like any food very much, not even treats. Mom and Dad have to coax her to eat anything. Look... she likes it. She ate her whole dinner with Cat-Man-Doo bonito flakes on it.
Mom said the only thing she didn't like about it is that the flakes stick to everything. They stuck to her fingers and to the spoon. Then the girls had some trouble getting the very last flakes off the bowls and Mom had to help them.
It looks like the Cat-Man-Doo people have changed some of their packaging and now call their treats for cats and dogs, so maybe they realized that we like fishy things, too.
Mom says to tell you that Chewy sent us these treats at no cost to us in exchange for our honest opinion. I didn't get to taste them, but the girls and Noah all said they were excellent. Don't worry, Mom says the next taste test is for me. I can hardly wait!
Your pal, Fudge
