That cat-shaped shadow? Actually a cat. Inside a pillowcase.
Marcus will only eat turkey canned cat food (although he will eat bonito flakes).I’ve tried in the past to give him other things. I thought, “hey, chicken, it’s almost turkey!”
Apparently, chicken is the uncanny valley of turkey. He sniffed the food and then looked at me with a face of such unmitigated horror and betrayal, as if he were saying “Why do you hate me? What did I do WRONG?”
Thursday I tried turkey with salmon.
He decided that I hadn’t fed him.
I put bonito flakes on it.
He ate a little bit around the flakes, then threw it all up.
So I figured I need to stop trying to give him non-turkey. I left for work; went out after; came home around 8.
All the food was gone. I guess he just needed some additional motivation.
