It’s uncanny. Fudge and Ziggy instinctively know when a box delivered to the front door is for them. The latest arrival from Fancy Feast containing the four newest chicken-flavored Broths was no exception. They eagerly helped me unpack pouches of the new flavors along with a cute little broths bowl for serving what is undoubtedly their favorite snack.
My cats have been enjoying the Broths for a while now and are huge fans of the fish flavors. So I was thrilled when Fancy Feast hired (and compensated) me to take part in their #WaysToWOW campaign to promote the newest editions to the line-up. As for Fudge and Ziggy, because of my work, they are professional product testers and were only too happy to be part of any PIFF program – payment in free food!
Cats are notoriously picky about their treats and I find myself constantly having to change up flavors and textures for Fudge and Ziggy. Treats are important because they are a catalyst, if you will you will, in enhancing the human-animal bond. They can change up games around the home and of course are a great reward for good behavior, or in learning new things such as sitting on command or giving a high five. Ziggy is becoming a pro.
The Fancy Feast Broths are what I like to call a snackable-treat. And since I originally discovered them when they were first released on the cat treat shelf, they have come to play a very important role in Fudge’s life. She is a nibbler and, in fact, needs to be coaxed to her food bowl. I have found that the Broths work as an appetite enhancer and prompt her to eat and hence head for her bowl for a meal.
I kick start my day with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and have developed a lovely morning routine whereby while my coffee is brewing, I give Fudge her morning “pick-me-up” in the form of a pouch of Broths. She laps it up and then heads to the food bowl for breakfast.
Ziggy and I have a totally different routine. He likes to play wand games. He will in fact bring me a wand toy, drop it at my feet and paw my leg to get the games going. He does this several times a day and I always oblige because it gets me away from my desk and keep him engaged and active. But every afternoon, when I am in the kitchen again preparing coffee, he will bring his toy and drop it in front of the cupboard where the Broths are kept. So we play a game and then when I drink my coffee, he gets his treat — a Broths bowl.
The broths come in a “silky” texture that is like a consommé and a creamy one. The latest recipes are two silky-styled ones namely chicken and vegetables and chicken, vegetables and whitefish. The creamy styled options are chicken and vegetables and a tuna, chicken and whitefish combo.
Fudge and Ziggy tucked into the new flavors and declared them all to have the “WOW” factor. I never thought they would like the creamy texture over the clear broth, but the latter definitely the flavor of the moment.
Because the snack is a broth, both cats tend to lap at it and, in doing so, send morsels of fish or chicken over the side of the dish. So I have taken to placing a paper plate underneath to help with their mop-up operations. And a plate can be used numerous times before its deemed ready for throwing away. This saves me from wiping down the kitchen counter, or the floor.
