Can I Eat Cat Food? Bizarre – Man Eats Cat Food

I reckon every cat owner has wondered at least once about how cat food tastes like. Can I eat cat food? Some people take it to the end. Read how.

Colin McQuistan was a curious cat lover since a young age and was always wondering what cat food actually tastes like. Grown up he started a foodie blog, but not as you know it.

Colin likes experimenting and cooks using bizarre ingredients. Apart from cooking with toothpaste he tried… eating cat food!

One day Colin goes to a shop and grabs “Felix As Good As It Looks Cat Food With Chicken In Jelly”.

“Lucky cat!”, says the cashier, but quickly changes in face hearing the Colin’s answer: “I don’t have a cat.”

Coming home Colin opens the cat food pouch. It looks bad and smells awful. Colin tries it!

“It tastes of chicken, yes, but there is something so very very unpleasant about it I almost vomit; it has a very burnt-rubber undertone and the chicken is chewy and tough; it is slightly sulphorous and the jelly is slightly more palatable than the chicken bits in so far as it doesn’t provoke such a strong vomiting response.” – reports Colin in a cat food post.

Being from the brave ones, Colin decides to cook it. He chooses to improve the taste by making a Chinese stir fry, “because they eat cats in China so maybe there’s a logical tie-in there”.

After adding ginger, garlic, chilli, gherkins, peas, soy sauce, and other things, and frying it for some time, Colin serves it up with sticky rice.

SO. How does cat food taste, Colin?

“1% edible. This is a very challenging dish to eat. There are nice enough flavours from the spices, vegetables and sauces but the cat food lends a weird flavour and horrid texture to the dish: I can still taste that sulphorous and burnt rubber and I feel a bit ill. The dish also makes my mouth produce an alarming amount of saliva so I end up drooling all over the place.”

Here you go! Even being relatively safe for humans to eat, do you think cat food is still worth a try?

Share in comments what you think of eating cat food experiment. Have you tried cat food or know someone who did? Share experience in comments or on our Facebook.

Apart from trying cat food, Colin also eats grass… May be he is a cat? Colin’s food blog is here and you can meet him on Facebook.
