Au The Gourmet Kitty

Au used to eat 1 type of cat food, 1 type of cat biscuit, and ham.  He would take a mouthful of roast chicken or beef but only a bit.

Now that he is a Senior Cat and coming up for his 14th birthday, Au has become a gourmet cat.  Each day is a new adventure in tastes and textures.

Yesterday Au ate:

Chicken and Sardine Cat food
Cat biscuits
Red Snapper Cat Food (twice)
Roast chicken (twice)
Half a slice of chicken roll
Steak - raw, cadged while I was preparing lunch.
Steak - cooked, cadged off our plates
One slice of bratwurst
A smidgeon of Gouda cheese
Several BBQ crisps
Dental treats

After he was so sick last year, we're so happy to see him interested in food, we give him what he wants!

Is dat rost pork? rost chikkun? rost lamb? i want some!  it's my favrut!
Could you resist this face?

Mum says she had a cat like that. Always pretty basic tastes and then when she reached her teens developed a liking for broccoli and vegetable samosas! Deccy x

ohmygoodness! Au is truly living the life! And I'm so happy for it! Just don't tell my cats, Au, that you are getting all that. I fear a revolution in the household...

Sharon Wagner said...

My cats quickly sneak a taste of almost everything that I prepare. I obviously pick my battles. And let them briefly lick the dirty spoons and bowls. The kitchen crazies.

Katnip Lounge said...

Cripes! Au ate more than ME! Although I substituted chocolate for a couple of his items.

Photo Cache said...

Emma is picky too and only eats when she's hungry. Buster grazes all day long, we're worried he's going to be sick from eating too much.

You Au has a good appetite for a senior cat. Way to go.

Eric and Flynn said...

You have a very good appetite Au and we are glad you are doing so well. Mum wishes we weren't so picky.

Father Tom said...

No, Mom Julie could not resist his face or..can I say, his food, but that is gourmet all the way!!

Purrs,
Tom

meowmeowmans said...

Just don't let him eat too much. I must say he has excellent taste as well as a good appetite. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Tamago said...

It's wonderful Au enjoys eating! And his dish sounds delish!
It's impossible to resist that cute face :-)

The Purr Diaries said...

Aww what a spoilt kitty! ;o)
My little Ollie is so fussy so I might take some of these as recommendations!
=^..^=

Katie Isabella said...

Au...you deserve every bite and my mommy would be just like yours. Mom told me about how sick you were and how she and Admiral purred for you. It was scary. YOu keep on feeling good handsome boy. xoxoxo

Indrani said...

Let the appetite continue.

BeadedTail said...

Au, you are living the good life! But of course with your cute face you knew that already! :)

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

What a kitty buffet you are serving Au...and so glad he is indulging, too! Oh...and Disco went 2 ounces in the wrong direction, hahameow!

catsynth said...

Wow, that is quite a feast! Hope Au is enjoying his gourmet cuisine.

Luna is quite a picky eater. I sometimes offer her human treats as well as cat treats, but for the most part she likes simple routine of her basics, and a little piece of cheese now and then.

Gattina said...

I could write the same post about Arthur ! He also became a "gourmet" and a thief too when it comes to food in the kitchen ! and we are also happy that he eats again !!

bichonpawz said...

I could not resist that face!!

Whisppy said...

We're so happy Au's a eating machine! Especially after last year's scare.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Au, No one with a heart could resist that little upturned face that says, "I'm hungry, Mom!" You've got your Human wrapped around your little paw--which is as it should be, of course.

Cheri said...

Boy - the choices you get for food! Glad to see your appetite back.

Donna Heber said...

I won't tell Cheops what you are eating. He would be very jealous, but you so deserve your gourmet food.

Barbara said...

Ooh get him! I can understand you giving him what he wants after he was so poorly, but I do hope my kitties don't get to read this post!!!
