Trouble's Tall Tales: My New Gourmet Food Line

-OR-
How I Re-Invented The Cat Food Industry

Kitties, I have had a very busy week.  I have just returned from Los Angeles.  I was asked to go and assist with the development of a new line of cat food.  They asked me to help because of my recent, highly successful Food Network Cooking show:  Cooking With Callie. 
Of course I couldn’t just travel without ensuring that I would be comfortable, I gave my handlers a list of my basic needs.  They included:  imported water, mink throw for the limo, fresh shrimp and caviar platter, my own personal chin scratcher and fish flakes.   I also asked for a security team and that the limo driver does not make eye contact. 
When I arrived, by private jet, I checked into the Beverly Hills Hotel Presidential Suite.  Before my meetings started, I was invited to grab a bite at Wolfgang Pucks place.  While I was eating, I was approached by the producer of the Bachelor/Bachelorette series begging me to be their next Bachelorette.  When I told them that I am no longer available and that my Sweet Ba-Boo, Kozmo was now my boykitty friend, he started crying. He got my crab cakes all soggy and salty!
My cat food line – Callie’s Cuisine for Cats – is still under development, but here are some flavors you can look forward to. 
1.      Wood Oven Roasted Rabbit in a silver vine sauce topped with roasted crickets
2.      Pan Roasted Mouse basted in chicken stock  with fresh grass
3.      Grilled Shrimp and lobster in a Chilean bass mousse
What is your favorite?

Hmmm.... not really sure but... I'm LOVING the idea of silvervine sauce. I've never had silvervine but I hear it's divine.

What? no squab? No song bird medley? Good call with the silvervine sauce though, that sounds yummy!

Callie, you mean you were in L.A. and did not look me up?!! Darn! I could have showed you some awesome spots that only the truly elite cats know about. I love your food flavors, but since I favor crickets, I will have to go with the rabbit as my favorite.

Oh Callie! We definitely wanna try that Pan Roasted Mouse!!

Eric and Flynn said...

The pan roasted mouse sounds heavenly, but we think you should offer it with the option of silvervine sauce as well as chick-hen stock.

So long as the back legs are off the crickets we choose the first one! (We just don't like that part of the crickets & leave it for the mom to enjoy.)

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

As we have special dietary needs, we would select the rabbit with silvervine sauce, but without the crickets. Let our cuisine director know when this becomes available.

Wow Callie! You are quite the gourmet and diva!

We know Kozmo because he's a fellow Canadian and his sister Nellie is also a Cat from Hell. He must be attracted to bad girls.

Your cat food line sounds scrumptious!

Thanks for coming to visit Dante.
