SUPERMARKET PET AISLE


If you visit the supermarket pet isle to buy your dog or cat food have you ever come across the people like you who stand pondering for ages over what food to buy for the dear little furry friends who have us all wrapped around their claws?

We often get involved in conversations with other pet owners who all seem to have the same dilemma.

'Oh, last time they didn't eat that.'

'We've tried that before remember, they only ate it once and then refused to even go near the dish 
again'.

'Well, Polly likes that, but the others won't touch it'.

'How about these kibbles for a treat? No remember we gave the last lot to the seagulls'.


Or is it just me ???

  1. I definitely remember the days of a multi cat household and trying to remember who would eat what. Mealtimes were worse than when there was a house full of children.
    We are down to one now and it is so much easier. I know what she likes (or should I say will eat) and that's all I buy!
    She also likes the odd bowl of porridge and a drink of coffee :) ~ Cathy

  2. Yes I know just what you mean, our last three cats could be very fussy sometimes but now
    we are left with an ex-stray boy and, bless him, will eat anything! SueM

  3. Yes, that usually happens. I rarely buy cat food from a supermarket now, unless it's on offer, which is not very often. I buy from the discount stores. I know what my cats like so I always buy the same, but I do get other food for Garcia up the road. He will eat anything except Tesco cheap pouches.

  4. I always have a terrible time buying Olga's food. Fortunately, she eats pretty much anything.

  7. HAHA....that is me in the pet area looking over cat litter!! haha....I have been trying several trying to decide which I like best. One gives me a headache, most Lily carries in her paw when she jumps out carrying it all over, the low dust is great put it takes more of it to cover the bow.....and so on and so on.....so yep, I am one of those folks.

  8. no problems with our dogs, I have never had a cat but have seen many stories about them being touchy about their food. dogs just eat dry dog food and say YAY.. I have stood in the aisle reading though because I had to change because they quit carrying what I always bought. now I have to buy senior food

  9. More time was spent in the pet food aisles than any other. Now we order it from Amazon and they like it or don't get to eat.

  10. I didn't believe that cats were so fussy about their food until we had a cat that absolutely refused to eat a certain brand, it seemed she'd rather die first. So now I understand the dilemma of the folk in the pet food aisle a bit better!

  11. Yes, here too! I think this is the aisle that people spend the most time in. And so many choices, you could look for a long time deciding. And I have to read the ingredients, too.

  12. I've never heard that kind of conversation in the store but I can relate. Other dogs Ive had have eaten anything. Gibbs is rather fussy though

  15. Ahh yes🐺 we used to raise Siamese and they liked one brand only and the kittens we stared them with milk soaked in that brand.

  16. Oh absolutely, picky or what, we are trying to change food at the moment, up hill struggle lol, their particular brand is getting hard to buy locally, but they are certainly not enamoured with the replacement! Xcx

  17. We had this problem with Feline Fayre cat food. the supermarket stopped holding it, we now buy this online. It partialy solves the problem but not all as they don't all like it. lol

  18. we have fed our dogs the same thing for 27 years, dry dog food, IAMMS, they all four ate it like it was steak. we also gave all four tidbits of people food, bread crust, a bite of egg or bacon, that kind of thing. we do not buy treats, never have, we buy dog bones and dry food. there treats are people food. we use the dry dog food as a treat.. one small piece at a time, and give them green beans or cooked carrots as treats.
