There’s No Goop in These Treats! You Can’t Fool Me!


I hate GOOP. It is a known fact.

You know what I am talkin’ about. That gooey brown stuff that humans try to give you when you start ackin’ up hairballs.

Some cats like the schtuff. But not me.

And when you don’t likeĀ  it, humans get real icky about it. They squeeze it all over yer paw, thinkin’ you’ll lick it off. I rub it on the wall.

My pal Morris from Twitter is one of those cats who likes it. He felt bad that I didn’t, so he sent me some Beaphar Malt Bits that his staff Nellie Jean found to see if I would like them. Sent it via Royal Mail, no less, as they live in the UK.

I really didn’t think I would like them, but I felt I owed it to my pal to give it a try. Lo and behold, I found that they weren’t half bad!

Now, if ya watch the video, you will see that I crunch on the crispy outside, and kinda leave it half eaten, so I am not sure I am getting the full effect. But my human, BZTAT, thinks this is an encouraging sign.

The packaging is in a foreign language so we had to look them up on line to find out more about them. You can read about them here: Beaphar Malt Bits. They are not easy to find, apparently, so we will hafta order them online.

I do have a side note, though. Since I have been on the NuLo Simply Fit System, I have not had any barfisodes. BZTAT is thinking that my barfing is more because I eat too fast and I don’t chew my food well, and the NuLo kinda makes me chew better. This could be an added bonus to the NuLo food.

Anyways, I thank my furriend Morris for sending me the nommy snacks. I will keep nommin’ them to see how I do with them.

Just Meowin’,

    I’ve never had goop. But I’ve never had a barfisode either. I’ve just started shedding in the last few weeks, so I guess I’ll start having them soon. I guess kittens don’t shed, but now I’m grown up! (I’ll be a year old in a couple of weeks.)

    I named your blog for an award. Visit my blog at to pick it up.

    • Some cats seem to pass fur better than others, fur some reason PumkinPuddy. Not sure why. Noah and Who rarely have hairballs and they are long haired cats. Hope you don’t hafta get the goop. Thx fur the award!!!

    Ick, I hate that goop stuff too. I never thought of wiping it on the wall, though – I will have to try that next time. Maybe it will inspire my human to hunt down some of those malt bits.

  3. We are not fans of the goop either – mostly Kirzon is the one to get it and he will fight it like he is going to the vet or something (actually, he fights going to the vet less). Mom has thought about getting him special treats or something – we may need to look into that a bit more, because it looks like they are pretty tasty!
