I’m admittedly more of a dog person than a cat person, so I find myself wondering if perhaps there is something I am missing here, but I doubt it.
Think “cat food.” Think “paradigm shifter.” What could Purina have possibly done to change the way we see cat food? Could it be that they have created a fabulous new low carb protein based meal? Have they committed to eliminating corn in their diets?
Are you ready for this?
ba da dummmmm…..
Cat appetizers? This is their paradigm shifting product?
A team of 40 at Purina worked 3½ years to develop this new product, shape it, fine-tune it. They spent hundreds of hours on research and design. When a select group of St. Louis area cat owners last year tested the product at home, they were forced to sign nondisclosure agreements.
Who buys this? WHO BUYS THIS, I SAY? I’ll tell you. The person who buys this is the same person who brings me their 24 pound “Maine coon” for skin problems, hauls their overstuffed blob from its Juicy carrying case, readjusts their crystal collar and then tells me they can’t afford antibiotics. And when I suggest weight might be the cause of the skin folds leading to the infection, the owner insists there is no way they can change their pet’s diet since “Mr. Purrface is very particular.”
Treating your pet well, and treating them as a human are not necessarily the same thing. Have you ever seen a feral cat nibble on a gecko before tucking into a finch? Why would anyone pay for small, prettily packaged portions of non-balanced pet food that serves absolutely no new purpose? (don’t answer that.)
