Cats can be known for being pretty particular about their food.
Pet owners will do anything to please their feline friends. Dogs? They’ll eat just about anything — wet, dry, with gravy, from a box, in a bowl, out of the toilet… but cats? They’re something a bit more special and refined.
Is it any wonder that the cat food aisle at the grocery store is stocked with more flavors than the soup aisle? But more importantly, do cats really care what you feed them?
Well, sorry to burst your bubble – but your cat really could care less about the food they find in their bowls.
At least, that’s what a RECENT CAT FOOD SURVEY said.
Most people answered that they just know that their cat prefers a certain type of food, specific flavors. But in reality, cats just don’t have as many taste receptors, taste buds as people do. So there’s no reason to equate human tastes to feline tastes.
To a cat, it’s the shape of the food that’s important — but even more important is the texture of the food and the smell of the food. If it doesn’t feel right or smell right, then that’s why your cat hates you. It’s never been about the taste, it’s always been about the cat food stink.
