||do dogs actually like the taste of cat ? will they chose it in preference to steak or chicken ?
||Given the choice between moggie and mutton, my labrador would eat the mutton first.
||<aside> when I worked in the flavour industry we did some work for a guy who wanted to make pet food for snakes. He knew snakes went mental for crickets, so we took some crickets, extracted them and did a flavour match. The snakes loved it. Never did cats though. </aside>
||It sounds like a great marketing idea. Just throw "Cat Flavored" on the label (along with the other boxes which might be bacon flavored, beef flavored, ...)
||The marketing of pet treats has always been geared toward humans. It doesn't matter what it actually tastes like.
