Good day, friends. Here is some important news from the Melville Cat:
1) Trixie, the Midget Fluff Ball Menace, is still in my home. She keeps growing larger.
2) I have been hired as a spokesperson — a spokescat, if you will — for the local cat food company, Montego. Montego has recently made some changes to its range of cat foods and they have hired moi to tell you about it.
As I dictate this post to Heather, she insists I tell you the Midget Fluff Ball Menace has also been hired as a Montego spokeskitten. I can’t explain why. She is a child, barely three months old, and has virtually no experience as a social media influencer.
Hmph. But fine. I will include the Midget’s input, if I must.
Montego Cat Food: A Spokescat’s Review (and some input from an inexperienced Midget Fluff Ball Menace)
Montego has unveiled new adult dry cat foods in tuna and chicken flavors. I should mention this new food contains “Hairball Assist”. I personally do not suffer from hairballs but I imagine they must be quite a nuisance.
I also received packets of “Tender Chicken and Gravy” and “Atlantic Salmon and Jelly” moist foods, and chicken and lamb “sauce” that is to be poured over dry kibble.
I quite like the dry food, especially in tuna flavor.
I also enjoyed the moist food, in both chicken and salmon flavors.
I was not a particular fan of the chicken and lamb sauce poured over dry food. I prefer to eat either plain dry food or plain moist food, depending on my mood, and nothing in between. But each cat to his own.
I asked the Midget to report on Montego’s kitten food, which I’m told has been reformulated into a new, easy-to-grasp clover shape. Here is what she said:
“Mew mew mew, squeak squeak squeak…Errrr?”
As predicted, the Midget’s response was babyish. She is a baby, after all. And although she was very eager to steal MY food, Heather reported to me that photographing the Midget with her own kibble was like herding cats. Literally.
I later ate the Midget’s kitten kibble myself and found it delicious. Then the Midget decided she wanted to eat it too, because she is a copycat.
A Cat Food Contest
Montego has instructed me to inform you, my readers, that they are holding a competition to win a Montego cat hamper worth R250. Only South African cats are eligible.
All entries must be submitted by 9 November and I will announce the winner on Instagram (@themelvillecat) on 12 November. Best of luck.
