Sharing the Cat's Food...!
No, it's not what you think!
This may sound like a silly idea to you, but I've been thinking about it for a while. Most of the time I feed my cats dry cat food. I also give them a treat once in a while by giving them a can of wet food (read meat). They really like this combination, but being typical cats...they start getting picky!
Dry food isn't too expensive, but the canned food is starting to get costly. Normally I can get canned food at Kroger's for about .49 cents a can. Today I found canned tuna in another food store for the same price! You see where I'm going with this, right?
The thing is, the cats will eat the cat food...but I won't! They REALLY like the canned tuna, and that is something that I'll eat as well! Now, I figure that we can share a food source and all be happy!
So here's the plan for now. I'll stock up very heavily on the canned tuna, and only buy the canned cat food when it goes on sale! That way, when I run out of canned cat food I can feed them tuna fish...with a clear conscience. I'm really not wasting food, but instead I'm buying a smaller number of cans to feed us all! At the same price, see? Now does that sound like a crazy idea?
I mean, I'm going to eat regardless and I'm going to feed the cats anyway so it only makes sense to me!
Besides, I can't wait to see the look on the faces of folks when I tell them that I eat the same foods as my cats! That look is priceless!
Now I can hear some of you saying..."how can you feed your cats canned tuna when there are so many hungry people in the world?" That's simple! I just open the can, split the tuna into three parts, and place their share on the floor. My share I use to make a sandwich with. That's the three of us sharing one can of tuna that cost less than .50 cents. No guilt for me, sorry!
Now, let's get some fresh coffee and sit in the kitchen, my friends. I just glad that the cats don't like coffee!
