For our Chewy product review this month, I thought I’d be crafty. The Solid Gold food we reviewed last month was such a hit with the permanent residents that when I saw that there was another kind of Solid Gold food available for review – the Solid Gold Holistic Delights – I laughed evilly while rubbing my hands gleefully together. Talk about a slam dunk, right?
We received a box of the Creamy Bisque with Crab & Coconut Milk flavor. I wasn’t thrilled to see that they were in pouches, because as a natural-born klutz, I always manage to make a mess when I open the packets, even when I use scissors to cut them open, because I am just that talented.
The cats gathered.
Newt and Archie have no special love for each other, but they both hate Stefan, so it’s a “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” situation. I like to think they’re checking in with each other while they’re waiting for breakfast. “Still hate him?” “Yep. You?” “Yep.”
All of my cats really like more liquidy foods, so I knew this stuff was going to be a hit.
Just as Stefan started eating (he was off somewhere being Stefan, and was the last to wander into the kitchen), the mass “NOPE”ing began. You can see Jake back there, NOPEing it up on his way out of the kitchen.
In fact, they NOPEd so fast that I didn’t even get pictures of most of them. Dennis, Joe Bob and Alice all took one lick and then were like “See ya!” Maxi gave me a dirty look and went to hang out under the side stoop.
The only cats who liked it – and who, in fact, took it upon themselves to eat not only their own food, but all the food everyone else had left behind – were Kara and Archie.
So, unlike the food we reviewed last month, this stuff was absolutely not a hit. I didn’t even offer it to the kittens, because I figured I could feed the rest of the packets to Archie and Kara over the next few days. I did, and they both continued to eat it, though I don’t know that they actually liked it.
Here I thought I was so smart, choosing a food I KNEW they’d all love, and they had different plans. The best-laid plans, eh?
2015: Louis was all ~FLOOF~ and ~HISS~ at Jake, who ignored him.
2014: Gilbert, lookin’ for trouble.
2013: Norbert Desmond is ready for his closeup, Mr. DeMille. (Also: the Starks!)
2012: “Seriously. Do you SEE this?”
2011: No entry.
2010: Elwood’s all “Nope! No room in the basket! No room for a little kitten! Sorry! Move along!”

2008: Kaylee would like you to know it’s a rough, rough life.
2007: Now, the Snuggle Sack has some of that crinkly stuff in it so that when a cat climbs in, it crinkles.
2006: No entry.
2005: No entry.
