Double the fat and still relevant

Remember our 1994 album Double The Phat and Still Tasteless?

A few months ago I was getting food for our cat.  She's 19 years old, and like many old cats her kidneys are failing so she needs low-protein cat food.  The problem is, low-protein cat food apparently doesn't taste very good.  So we experimented with a few different brands, and I lucked into a cheaper brand at a close-out store.  Problem was, while its protein content was about equal to the expensive brands from the vet, the fat content was half as much, and I figured that would mean it would taste worse.  Surprisingly, our cat preferred it, which prompted my comment:

"Huh -- the food from the vet has double the fat, but it's still tasteless."

Never expected to use that phrase in my everyday speech.  Yet, here we are.


A chat moment not to forget...

DJ Empirical reminded me of this old poster hack, which I realized wasn't on the site anywhere -- but it is now:



Cute cuddly Mumia.  Litter-trained, mostly indoor.
Not neutered.  Has had shots.
