Yaki Katsuo (from the Ciao Cat Snack Series)

This is not the only type of cat food sold in Japan, but it is certainly the most interesting. Encased in this vacuum-packed plastic is a strip of katsuo fish (bonito) imbued with green tea essence to reduce the fishy smell. This one is regular katsuo flavor, but it also comes in scallop, sardine and even dashi (Japanese soup stock).

The packaging tells the rest of the story:

"Direct from Tosashimizu Harbour"

"Gently juicy, with lots of taste appeal. Delicious fresh ingredients to please your cat."

"Cats like salty foods. Your cat will like it even better if you heat it to body temperature before serving."

"The katsuo that come in on the Japan Current from Souda are cooked to fragrant perfection and soft juiciness to please your beloved cat."

"Soften by squeezing gently before opening."

"No artificial colors. Made in Japan."

Price: 88 yen
Manufacturer: Inaba Foods (pet food division)
Sales point: Seifu supermarket

TuTu LOVES this snack. I feed it to her as a treat when she has been good (so not often).

There is also a new snack for cats that I saw at the pet store which is cheese based. She loves to bat these cheese strips around the floor before chewing them to bits and leaving little soggy crumbs around the apartment.. nice!!

salty seafood should be a cat favorite, since cats and for that matter probably all felines lack taste receptors for sweet tastes- or so i learnt an hour ago watching a science magazine , your post feels almost like a follow-up to that. ciao cat - love that name.

The cat on this package looks stunned by the giant fish protruding from it's head.
