Oh wise Max, I have a question. What are your favorite Fancy Feast flavors?
My humans are starting to bring me Fancy Feast offerings instead of the free range artisanal crap they’ve been dragging in since my beloved Nutro Max Cat went away.
I horked up half a can of some tuna and salmon garbage last night. You’d have been proud of me, Max. Right in the middle of the hallway carpet!
What flavors of Fancy Feast should I demand? I’ve tried something with chicken guts and it was really good. What are your favs?
Keep on ticking, Max!
Oh, I think the better question would be which ones don’t I like because that takes less time to answer. I’m not a fan of salmon, so I don’t eat that one (though I do enjoy the salmon & shrimp, go figure.) You can’t go wrong with the classic pates, like tender beef or chicken feast, and the fish & shrimp is amazing! It’s like it expands once it’s out of the can and there’s A LOT of food there, tasty fish and really big shrimp chunks.
I mostly get the pate flavors and don’t know much about the ones with gravy. The Woman has never liked giving me those because there’s not enough bulk in them and I get hungry faster, but this week she bought me some of the gravy lovers beef and a can of the chicken one to see if I liked either of them. And the gravy is pretty tasty! I didn’t eat much of the meat part but licking up that gravy was awesome.
I don’t like the one that’s beef liver and chicken. In fact, I don’t like any of them with liver. But try all the others, they’re pretty tasty! And the bonus: the stabby person told the Woman that Fancy Feast is not the junk food she’d been led to believe. Though at this point it wouldn’t matter. I get what I want, as long as she can figure out what that is.

Hay, Max, I know you gots a dot on your nose but did you always have that? I gots a new one and my mom is worried about it.
Well, I’ve always had the little diamond shaped mark under my nose, but the dot didn’t appear until I was almost 4 years old. In fact, the Woman thought I’d gotten into her Sharpies somehow and given myself a little tattoo, so she tried to scrub it off.
Imagine her surprise when it didn’t go anywhere. That might have been the first time I growled at her.
We get marks, just like people do. She did ask the stabby guy, who likened it to a freckle. I mean, your mom should get it looked at to be sure, but she doesn’t need to panic. Chances are, it’s just a beauty mark. Though mine is totally a tattoo. Chicks dig tattoos. Right?

How ya doin’ bud? I saw on your Woman’s FB yesterday you weren’t eating. Please eat.
Dood…today was a better day and I ate well. Yesterday was just one of the bad days, which she hates because she can’t control it and she wants me to be well, but I have one or two of those every week. I started coming around last night and asked for food twice, and I licked at it a little bit. By this morning, I was hungry again and ate all my steak bites plus all my breakfast. For the rest of the day I nibbled on food and got her to open 3 different cans for me, then ate half my evening steak snack.
And dood, just now I devoured my half of the Fancy Feast Medleys can she opened for us. Normally my 9pm snack is the last one of the day, but she promised that if I asked before she goes to bed, she’d get me more to eat.
This is just how life is right now. Some days I eat really well, others I nibble, and the bad days I just don’t feel like eating at all.
Today was a good day.
Not gonna lie and say I’m great because I’m not. But I’m hanging in there, and as long as I have more good days than bad, we’re not worrying too much.
Oh! And I got a new fountain today! That was AWESOME!
