My cat liked grasshoppers, lizards and sparrows too.
If cat food was being sold directly to cats, I'm sure they might have other flavors.
The truth is, however, that humans actually buy the food. Therefore, cats get filet mignon and roast chicken flavors.
If there were mouse-flavored catfood, cats might not bother with hunting mice, so maybe it's just as well.
It's a marketing thing ... ever been to a survey group meeting?
People buy cat food for their pets while looking at them almost like a baby ... from that perspective they will never even come to think of them as an animal which would like to catch and eat a mouse ... even the idea of buying something to do with a mouse and bringing it into their home maybe quite repulsive to these enstranged consumers ... so the manufacturers will sooner create cheese cake flavoured cat food, if it sells well ...
It may not say mouse flavored on the can, but I'm sure that there is a bit of mouse in there somewhere. That's cheap meat! They can catch it anywhere in their factories and add it into the gravy.
Probably because people wouldn't buy it because they see mouse as discusting and tuna (and other flavors) as appealing since they eat it too..
Because cats would love it too much and then eat way too much, thus making them fat....and not as much fun.
Many people used to borrow from other. but mouse don't have that tendency to take food from cat... same way cat also.. both are very satisfied from each other.... but as we are human beings .. we also have to behave like cat and mouse....
The computer hardware manufacturers would never stand for it. And as cat aren't vegetarian, apples are out.
That's the best question ever. My take on why they don't make mouse flavored cat treats? Probably the same reason there are not cat poop flavored dog treats-someones' gonna get all sensitive and whatever.

Our cats are 15 years old. We feed them Friskies Urinary preventative cat food. This has been working for several years. Are there any other brands that are available?

I have 4 cats (yes I know, crazy cat lady in the making), 3 of which are fit and one who is just a big fatty. I leave them a large feeder, so that they can eat as they please. I do this because I work odd hours and sometimes have to be gone for a full day or two, so I can't give them a standerdized...

I only load usually load my own page headed ‘explore notifications Angie Jardine start a new hub’. Then I have to jump through hoops to find the HP blog page and, incidentally, the ‘post a new topic in forums’ page. I’m wondering of HP could add these two headings...

What do you think is the BEST cat food then? You seem to hate every cat food out there, so maybe...cat owners should just let their cats starve to death based on your "expertise" of cat food.
