Woke Capital Makes Your Dreams Come True

(Or, may be, nightmares???)

I mean which one of us hasn't dreamed of eating insects for breakfast or grilled worms for dinner? Especially when you can feel so virtuous about saving the planet from climate, too!

    No, this is a huge opportunity here: virtue-signalling pet food that the owners have to cook up for the little critters just to show How Much They Care ...

    Our cat used to go hunting for flies, he'd have loved some of this stuff, especially with alfredo sauce.

    But I could have poured alfredo sauce over a crushed brick and he still would have eaten it, so that's not saying much. :-)

  2. Oh yes, cats do hunt flies, but do they really eat them??? Mine didn't, as far as I know. But even cats prefer real meat, mine is crazy about chicken, for instance, so I'm not sure he could survive on the diet of mealworms!!!

    Yes, some cats do eat them, but I think my cat liked his extra treats to be a little spicy anyway ...

    I brought home a curry chicken takeaway from the corner Chinese restaurant, and while I was eating it the cat wanted a bit out of hungry curiosity, so I gave him a few small bits of chicken and some carrots with curry sauce to try.


    After each bite, the cat would look accusingly at me as if to say, "What is this stuff you eat, human, and why does it burn my mouth and make me sneeze?"

    But I didn't know my cat had a thing for curried carrots.

    *achoo achoo achoo*

    I thought this would have dissuaded him from wanting to eat any more of my curry chicken takeaways, but every time after that ...

    So I think he'd have been totally game on for bug pasta with yellow curry chicken sauce, and this company is totally missing the right market: pet food for virtue signallers. :-)

  4. Not sure if you are trolling...but it is funny:)

    Seriously, nobody should be eating curry chicken takeaway, it's hardly healthy!

    Yes, I do prefer to make my own curry chicken with actual ghee, butter, and properly healthy fats ...

    But if you order it without the rice, it's not nearly as much of a shock to the body in terms of carbohydrates. So if I worry about the quality of the fats, I can add a bit of butter and improve the richness of the curry.

    And yes, I'm trolling about the virtue signalling "pet food", but completely not about my old cat.

    Unfortunately over the past two decades, I've become allergic to cats, mostly because of not being around them all that much ...

  6. I wasn't so worried about rice but more about the quality of the fats they use in these joints:) And the lack of veggies.

    My husband loves cats more than dogs, btw. That's why we only have cats, though I'd love to have a dog, too. But it's too much work and we go away quite often and have no dog sitter. Anyway, cats are fun and much more independent hence easier to care for.
