Store bought baby food smells a lot like cat food One of my mother's old cats had a bunch of his teeth pulled due to an infection. I have been having a hard time finding something he can eat. Even can cat food has little bone shards in it that hurt his still tender gums So I've started buying the baby food. Today I decided to offer some baby food and can cat food in an attempt to work him up into firmer foods. And when i opened both I could hardly tell the difference between the Liver Pate' cat food, and the beef in beef gravy baby food. They both smell so much alike. UGH. When I have children, I am NOT feeding them this stuff. I'll make my own thank you.
