Thursday Thirteen #4: Feline American restaurant FAVORITES!

I'm feeling hungry. (Audio: Stomach growling pitifully)

It's past my dinnertime. (Visual: Analog Kit-Kat® clock registers 6:00 PM)

Mom's still not home from work ... (Visual: Empty driveway; no black masheen)


Now's the time I start daydreamin' (or is it "evening-dreaming"?) about where Mom is and what's she's eating.

Don't get me wrong, Mom is good about sharing. I don't worry that I won't get a "kitty" bag full of tasty tidbits. But I do kinda wonder what's gonna be in it!

That wonderin' got me to thinking about my favorite people restaurants that make good cat food (and are purveyors of Triple F: Fudge Friendly Food).

Here's my Top 13 Cat Food Eateries in San Diego!

1. El Pollo Loco: I'm crazy for that flame-broiled chicken. I snap it outta Mom's hand with the ferocity of a Great White shark!

2. CJ Oriental Express: Barbecued pork, anyone? I also like the shrimp ... I'm not picky.

3. Quizno's: I'm partial to any sub sandwich made entirely of turkey. Sometimes Mom orders me ... I mean "us" ... a Toasty Kid's Meal just the way we like it:
"Not toasted. No cheese. No vegetables. No sauce. Yep, just meat and bun ... and you can leave off the bun."
"Lady, you've got a weird-a** kid!"

4. Long John Silvers: Can you say f-f-f-fish? We like ours without the breading with NO tartar sauce or malt vinegar. What can I say? We're purists ...

5. Roberto's Taco Shop: Number 5 Carne Asada plate. Mmmmmm ... meat.

6. KFC: Any of the Colonel's birds are perfect for me, but Mom can dole out the boneless stuff speedier. Speed is good.

7. El Torito: Carnitas Michoacan. Mmmmm ... porky goodness.

8. Subway: Much the same as #3 above, but they don't put as much turkey on their kid's meal. We tend to vote for Quizno's.

9. Pizza Hut: Super Supreme pizza! It has my three favorites -- ham, pepperoni, and "mystery sausage." I guess that this goes back to my kitten days when I'd follow the three-year-old around waitin' for the little doofus to drop stuff.

10. McDonald's: Yeah. I know. This is a breakfast-y thing, but I LOVE the bacon on a Bacon-Egg-and-Cheese biscuit. Mmmm ... bacon.

11. Merckl's BBQ and New York Deli: They have the smokiest chicken EVER! This is one way to work Fudgie and me into a lather. We can smell Merckl's when Mom's barely drivin' up the street.

12. Burger King: I personally like the edges of a Whopper®. Mom lets me take my own bite ... sometimes ... when she's not looking or she's temporarily abandoned her hamburger. Like when she's eating an onion ring or something. Finders/keepers, right?

13. Arby's: But only if she's ordered a turkey sandwich. She "claims" that they put "too much turkey on a single sandwich," so she wraps up half for us. Can you believe that she'll put it in her purse? Moms ... Gotta love 'em!

Wow!! you have a very large selection of restaurants. Here we have Subway (Tuna!!!!), and a couple of hometown diners (hamburger). Not a big selection.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Triple Ms ... You've gotta teleport down to visit me here in San Diego! I can hook you up! Most of the places on my list are where Mom's students work. They've been known to send Mom home with an extra burger that got dropped on the floor (five second rule?) or an extra wing. They know that it's for us.

she said...

Wow, that's quite the list. I'm surprised DaisyMae eats so much restaurant food. Neither Thanatos nor Bubba are interested in restaurant food.

Rosie & Cheeto said...

You have a very sophisticated menu choice, DaisyMae. You and me should go out on the town for dinner! how fun! I'm hungry just thinking about all of those yummy places.

Sparky Duck said...

JohnH985 said...

I like Long John Silvers but there are none around here where I live.

My 13 are up.

Renee said...

We order our Quiznos very similar to yours...only we take the bun too. But no toasting, no cheese. I tell them "Meat on bread...bag it!" And can you believe that the one shop doesn't get that? They gave us a toasted w/ cheese sandwich...that I had to take back and ask them to do it right! humph! We haven't been back.
Our regular shop knows better.
We haven't been to 1,2,5,7,11.

Dragonheart said...

Yummy! That's quite the selection of restaurants. I'm not allowed to eat human food yet. I hope I am soon!

Skeeeeezix the Cat said...
