What's wrong with the meat at McDonalds and Burger King?

Tails Kitty is a most discriminating eater; she knows what she likes! For canned food, she will only eat the most expensive Sheba brand which costs twice as much as the others and looks like whole shredded meat. I have literally tried every brand of wet food and she only likes the Sheba.

Cats and Dogs all beg while their human subjects dine at the table; Tails is no exception and of course we occasionally feed her something from our meals.

The kids and I have dined on assorted fast and home cooked fare. Tails will NOT eat Burger King or McDonald's Chicken or beef; turns her nose up at it and sometimes performs the ultimate kitty insult; she goes through the scratching motions on the floor next to it like she makes in her litter box while covering up her....uh....how to say this without offending...uh..yes...her solid waste!

She will eat Wendy's though or any chicken or beef I prepare at home. She's been offered Burger King and McDonald's Chicken and beef many times; even if her bowl is empty and she's obviously hungry, evidenced by standing next to her bowl meowing, she will not eat them!

So, what is it she smells in them? What really makes me fear what she might be smelling is that on one occasion Tails had thrown up a little, and, as some animals will do, went back to it and tried to (eeewwwww!!!) eat some of the chunks, so, WHAT THE HECK IS IN THE MEAT FROM Burger King and McDonald's that Tails, not matter how hungry she gets, she will not touch though she will eat her own regurgitated food??

Be afraid! Be VERY afraid!!!

Chris,

We feed our cats only dry cat food. Several times, we have imagined we would be giving them a treat by offering them various specialty items--tuna, trout, shrimp, etc. They smell the food, sometimes lick it, but will eat none of it. They love the dry food, however.

David - What brand of dry food do Zeus and Thor eat? Tails is very lackluster about dry food and I have tried them all (I think)

Uh oh! Tails saw me typing this and has jumped up in my lap and is meowing loudly. My cat is a bit rusty but I think she is trying to say "Tell your friend David that if he has not bought the Sheba canned food, she heratily recommends for Zeus and Thor the variety in the Yellow can, though the red can is almost as good"

We feed the boys Purina Kit 'N Kaboodle dry cat food. We have tried other brands, and they greatly prefer Kit 'N Kaboodle. They prefer the ocean fish variety.

We Stuffed It! When it comes to variety, Kit 'N Kaboodle has it all! Packed with two Stuffed Morsels and two Crunchy Bits, Kit 'N Kaboodle is the 100% Nutritionally Complete cat food that makes every meal a mouth-watering occasion!

Kit 'N Kaboodle has 4 yummy flavors: chicken, beef, ocean fish, and turkey. And with 4 snazzy shapes, Kit 'N Kaboodle is as fun to eat as it is tasty! Treat your cat right with the only cat food that has it all!

Kit 'N Kaboodle - the stuffed, crunchy, snazzy-shaped, packed with-flavor extravaganza!

You have made me hungry for cat food!
