For years - 10 actually - I fed Betty (and Travis when he came along) mostly dry cat food - whatever was the cheapest at the grocery story.  Then, about six months ago, her lady-ship started getting old lady indigestion issues.  These, as it turns out, a solved by switching to mostly wet food and not the cheap stuff.  

I have spent a fortune trying to keep her supplied with food she will eat and food her old lady parts will tolerate.  I have spent the fortune because I did it wrong for six months.  I'd get a sample, she's eat it all up, I'd buy a case, she would no longer touch it.  Or some variation of that scenario.  Or I'd forget which kinds she liked and buy the wrong kind at the store.

I did actually try to find a cat food diary map but failed.  The pet diaries and the human food journals don't do it.

So I made my own.  I use catch.com.  I make an entry for every kind of cat food we try.

I take a picture of the label.
Note the meal.
Note the intake - licked the bowl, at it all or picked at it.  

Now, when I go to the cat food store, I can whip out my phone and see what's hot and what's not.  AND also track whether one kind is good for breakfast and not for lunch/dinner.  The whole project is way over the crazy cat lady top which is why I didn't do it originally but I'm tired of throwing out expensive cat food!

Travis does not give a shit.  He'll eat whatever she leaves for him and he's happy.

This just popped into my email:

Hello Susan,

As you may already know, I am a recruiter who specializes in finding Surgical Services RN candidates as well as similar positions in Gold Beach, OR and other locations nationwide.

Your background may be a fit for the position below.  Please check out the link and apply if you are interested in hearing more about the job.


It was a long email but I didn't need to read the rest.  Oh yeah, I'm a nurse... especially a surgical RN who want to live in Oregon.

Or a drug mule with sights set on southern Mexico.

One is not more outrageous than the other.   The writer did not mention Nigera - well, maybe it's mentioned further on down the note.

Web_Merrick_Cat_Can_TurduckenThe pet store guy had me try several selections from a brand called Merreck.  Instead of names like beef and turkey or salmon and rice, they have Pot Pie and Thanksgiving Dinner (both of which Betty loved to the point of licking the bowl clean).  But tonight she nibbled a little and then turned up her nose at Turducken.  I'd like to think she was objecting to the outrageousness rather than the flavor.

Its now on the list with a label photo and marked NFW.

My Nexus 7 tablet has been shipped.  No arrival date yet on the tracking number but I'm guessing Wednesday.

I'm ok with that.
