Jinja and George Make a Food Blog

We decided to start our own food blog.  The human with whom we share our space, Dan from IslandEAT, seems to have been too busy to post much these days.  How hard can it be to write a post?

Jinja, the ginger female on the left above, and I, George, have chosen a fish-themed post for April 1st, “poisson d’avril”, as they call it in France.  We both understand English and French, so we can switch back and forth.

I also know Bislama, the official language of my homeland, Vanuatu.  George hemi wan bigfala pusskat, be hemi nogat wan tingting, as we used to say back in the South Pacific.  (“George is a big cat but he is absolutely clueless” but I say this to his face all the time, and he just closes his eyes, pretending as if he is just ignoring me when he really has no idea of what I have said to him).    –  Jinja.

Honestly, I really do not know why I put up with her…COL (“chuckle out loud”).  Jinja also insisted on hogging our site’s banner and then is trying to insult me in our first post.  It is a good thing for her that I am older, wiser, and so easy-going, given that I weigh 16 pounds to her eight pounds of feisty-South-Pacific-feline.

Carlyle’s Just Tuna For Cats

We do not agree on many things, such as the superiority of NoPac islands (north Pacific, where we both live now) to those down in SoPac (South Pacific) or other territorial matter. However, we do agree that our favourite tinned food is Carlyle’s Just Tuna for Cats. Its title makes us think of that television show the humans used to watch, Will and Grace, with its character Jack, whose cabaret show was called Just Jack.  This food makes us POL, or “purr out loud”, for those of you not used to feline-internet slang.

While it is darker than the tuna which the humans seem to eat, Just Tuna for Cats does not have sodium and other things we do not need.  This product also has vitamins for us, so we give it a two-paws up rating.  We even share and share alike, every other day when Dan decides to give us each one-quarter of a tin.  Now if this could only become a daily routine….

  2. While there are no kitties in this house, I’ll have to read for knowledge should one every acquire us.

  3. Love, love, love the picture of Jinja in the banner. Adorable. I am thinking April Fool’s joke Dan, since I noticed the post date. IF not, well good for you. I am totally (see I have previously mentioned I am like such a Valley Girl from the 80’s…it sneaks up on me sometimes) starting to get out of ideas for what on earth to write about. Maybe Sadie should write my blog for me. She would have a lot to say about her food this year since she has had to switch to a plethora of different grain free, minimal ingredient foods to narrow down her allergies. She is just too hip for school…I have a gluten free dog! 🙂 I do realize gluten free is a medical necessity to many. Not trying to be politically incorrect or insensitive.

      Hi, Geni. Yes, it was April Fools, but there has been such good response that I’ll have to see what George and Jinja occasionally are up to food-wise, that is.

      I bet Sadie’s food blog would be totally a big help for the gluten-free dog world, which is probably growing like the gluten-free people world, you Valley Girl, you.

    You are so lucky, G and J, not to be tormented by a six-year old all day. Although, now that I think about it, she could prove useful to me. Maybe I could get her to lobby her parents for the yummy healthy canned stuff?
