So Do Cats Like Meowstard and Catchup and Dogs Like Muttstard and Petchup?
While Meowstard and Catchup and Muttstard and Petchup are all sold in squeeze bottles, like traditional human condiments, we received plenty of sample packets to test out.
After tearing a Muttstard and Meowstard packets open, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it looked just like real mustard. But after a curious sniff, the smell of the yellow condiment was quick to remind me that the turkey-flavored treat was pet food and not human food. Muttstard and Meowstard smells nothing like human mustard and is more comparable to other wet pet foods with a slight vitamin-y smell to them.
Since I only give Scribbles and Joy dry kibble, they were extremely interested in their neon yellow snack.
I could tell that both Scribble and Joy enjoyed the scent, but it was Joy who really went to town on the Meowstard-covered food. Scribble still ate her food at her own pace covered in Muttstard, but the golden goo really perked my cat’s attention. The crimson Catchup and Petchup variety had similar results, with Joy openly showing much more appreciation for the kitty condiment by eagerly chowing down than Scribbles ever did.
I tested both condiments on my extended family of animals, and I found similar results: Cats Like Meowstard and Catchup more than Dogs liked Muttstard and Petchup. What is funny to note that in checking Amazon user reviews for the Muttstard and Petchup for Dogs and Meowstard and Catchup for Cats that other owners had completely opposite results with the dogs really liking their condiments and the cats less so.
My verdict is that if you’ve got a finicky feline or canine, pick out the flavored condiment that would best suit your pet’s taste. Muttstard and Meowstard are both turkey flavored, while Catchup tastes like salmon and Petchup has a beefy flavor, so there is no shortage of kibble-enhancing condiments to try out! If you’ve got a dog with a wider palate, who isn’t afraid to try new things, go for it and try it.
Your pet may find these flavor and nutrition enhancers a welcome boost to their daily diet.
