You’ve got to be kidding.

.

Lord Dudley Mountcatten has been a finicky eater. When it comes to canned food he won’t eat fish. He won’t eat anything grilled or in pieces. No meaty morsels, no shreds. Nothing with cheesy bites or creamy sauce. The little bugger won’t even eat tuna FFS. It took me a solid month of trying every brand under the sun… from cheap to ridiculously expensive…. to find one kind he liked.

.

.

It’s the only brand and variety he’ll eat every single time. So you know what that means….. it’s now virtually impossible to find. In person or online, and believe me I’ve tried. Oh, I could buy it on eBay.

Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently it’s still being made but there’s a disruption in the supply chain which is making it scarce…. so the price gougers are in full swing. Amazon?

A little better, but still outrageous. Sorry Dudley… you may have to learn to like bologna.

  1. Seriously? Well, then our cats have more in common than I first thought. Charlie won’t eat any of the foods I’ve tried, including what you mentioned. He like the gravy and gravy only, I have to buy cat food with “gravy” and mush it all up so it’s completely liquid for the mofo to eat it.

  2. At first I thought this was going to be about the new Fancy Feast cookbook for humans who want to eat like their cats. I’m not kidding about that. Fancy Feast has produced a cookbook for single-serve meals to help people somehow bond with their cats.
    On the bright side the book can be downloaded for free so you don’t have to worry about price gouging there.

  3. You might want to call Lord Dudley’s bluff by filling his dish with nothing but what he has been refusing. Even as spoiled as he is, he’ll probably give in before he starves to death.Or let him outside and tell him to catch his own food — tell him you hear that red squirrel is particularly tasty.

  4. This is a problem we have had, too. I’ve been buying Crave pate since before Agnes had her kittens. They all liked it, but it became harder and harder to find at the store. In fact, all the grocery stores around here stopped carrying it almost as soon as the kittens were old enough to be earing it and it became clear we’d need several boxes of it a week. We had one store left that still carried it until a few months ago as well as getting it through Chewy. Then there started to be some kind of supply issue with Chewy, and I just happened to notice someone in a review say that Crave wasn’t going to make the wet catfood anymore. I don’t know what the deal is. I can’t find anything online as to why they’d stop making it. And like Lord Dudley, my cats are very picky and don’t really like the other brands I’ve tried.

    Good luck with your kitty food saga. I hope you have better luck than we have.

    1. He’s a young cat and doesn’t have any dental issues. He also crunches happily away on dry food, but our vet has always advised against a steady diet if that. Too many carbs.

      1. I remember thinking Hermione’s cat “Crookshanks” had a fantastic name, and have been trying to think of similar names for animals ever since. Unfortunately our cats have always received very boring names, like “George”, “Tom”, and “Sam”. The most recent – a little black rescue cat – got called “Kaspar” after a Michael Morpurgo book.

      2. We made the mistake of letting the neighborhood children name our last stray cat. He was white…. and was saddled with the least imaginative moniker possible. Mr. White.

      3. I wait for my cats’ names to appear. The neighborkid keeps asking why “Floofims” is now “Professor Floofims”… I can’t explain that she needs to ask him!
