Life in Lock Down: Day 7 (sanitised version)

For those folk who find my other Lock-Down Diary versions too “negative” or otherwise unpalatable…

Here’s a photo of my cat,




Tomorrow’s Sanitised Version: a pretty flower.





It’s a cat’s life…

It’s not just those cute and/or crazy cat memes on Facebook – Real Life took a weird turn when a sample cat-food satchet turned up in our letter box (with accompanying “menu”-stle advertising brochure).

At first I didn’t take much notice of it and casually chucked it into the pantry with the cat food cans. Next day when I took it out to give to our four-legged, non-rent-paying boarders, the label caught my eye;



Tuna, surimi, whitebait ?!?!

Who gives their cats whitebait ?!?!

Holy smoke – I don’t eat whitebait! Not when the price-per-kilo is fast approaching that of gold bullion!

Maybe the front label was referring to mock-whitebait. Like surimi is mock-crab?

So I checked the Ingredients list as the back. Yep – there it is; whitebait.


Image 001.

So, the only thing left – open it up.

With the contents emptied into a bowl,  a visual inspection showed what definitely looks like… whitebait.



What next – crayfish?

Pate de foie gras?


Would the pussy cats like to see the wine menu, perhaps?

Whitebait… I think we’ll stick to cans of  ‘Chef’ or ‘Whiskas’.  I definitely prefer the natural order of things where cats pester us for our food, and not the other way around.
