Everyone knows the good old joke about a cat and buckwheat.
Do you remember? Once the owners of their cat decided to train buckwheat. On the first day, the cat sniffed fastidiously: “Fu, buckwheat”, on the second day he was surprised: “Again buckwheat?”, And on the third he rejoiced: “Oh! Buckwheat!”
So this joke has a sequel!
On the fourth day, the owners put semolina into the cat’s bowl, the cat came up and was indignant: “And where is my buckwheat ?!”
For gourmet cats, our next story.

Reviews of cats and veterinarians
Asya writes: “Mostly my cats eat drying, but I decided to partially transfer it to wet food. The Four-Legged Gourmet became pioneers with us. I bought cold cuts. The can is opened in one motion, but if the cat doesn’t eat everything right away, then we need to shift the contents to glass dishes, since the shelf life in the jar is 1 day. Inside the jar there was a decent stuffing, I even licked it and was glad that it was tasty. And the cat licked and refused to eat. I didn’t buy it anymore. "
Tatyana: “I bought the Four-Legged Gourmet several times. Because it is not expensive and the composition is good. All the same, the meat is 50%! I noticed that the kitten food is much better in composition and consistency. My cat eats, but without much excitement. I think he’s embarrassed by the smell, very reminiscent of stagnant jelly. "
