Supermarket shelves are stuffed with so many airy-fairy flavours of cat food from Gourmet Salmon to Fancy Trout with Spinach and back again - all of which cost a bomb, and all of which my cat turns his whiskers up at.

Instead I think my cat (and millions of other cats) would go mad for Mouse Flavoured cat food - after all, he spends all his time catching them and scoffing them in the wild.

So why don't cat food makers sell Mouse Flavoured cat food?  Are they missing out on a lucrative new product line?

I wonder if the better way to do this is to make a bowl that the cat has to chase for its food - I suspect that it is the thrill of the chase rather than the taste that makes mice and birds so appealing!
