and why dont they sell flavors like mouse,or rat or ANYTHING cheaper then Salmon!!!!–besides–you ever see a house cat catch and eat SALMON or BEEF!!!!
This is because the cat food (especially the “gourmet” types) are made to appeal to the human which the cat owns. Some examples:
> “Yellowfin tuna in a classic primavera sauce, accented with garden veggies and greens”
> “Yellowfin tuna in a savory tuscan sauce, complimented with long grain rice and garden greens”
> “Filet mignon flavor”
> “Alaskan king crab flavor”
Newman’s Own even has an “Organic chicken and brown rice” cat food, where “the chickens are fed a 100% natural all-vegetable diet with NO antibiotics and the grains are grown without pesticides or synthetic fertilizer”!
The barnyard cats of years ago were happy with the rats and mice they caught, along with whatever table scraps the farmer’s wife put out for them. Today’s cats have been spoiled with “people” food, and therefore demand something more.
