Diane, the caretaker at Black and White Cat World, writes that "Costco had the institutional size can of gefilte fish on sale for 97c -- my husband is the one who suggested this would be a good deal for the wild cats. So we stocked up.
Packed in oil, there are enough patties in each can for a couple days. I cut them in half, trying to spare the kitties' digestive systems, but the cats don't care about that. They hop from treat to treat, gorging themselves on as much whitefish, carp, mullet, passover wheat, etc, as they can getbefore another cat pushes them off. I'll save the oil, congealed with the cold (I store the opened can on my enclosed porch), for after the fish is gone, to mix with their Meow Mix."
Ha ha ha ... love it! I think the cat with the white blaze looking longingly at the gefilte fish is Rachamim. Many of the cats at B & W Cat World have Jewish names, so the gefilte fish is quite apropos. But Diane ... where's the chrain?
Readers: yes, we are open to donations of cases of gefilte fish!
