Pet store owner eating only pet food for month

KENNEWICK — Pet store owner Dorothy Hunter is eating only dog, cat and bird food for a month to prove its nutritional value.

She says if she can’t eat it, she won’t sell it at her Paw’s Natural Pet Emporium stores in Richland and Kennewick.

The Tri-City Herald reports Hunter began her 30-day pet food diet on June 19.

Hunter says it’s surprising how good the cat and dog food tastes.

Her favorites are Tiki Cat brand chicken, which she eats straight from the can. She also likes Natural Balance dry kibble and, for a treat, dehydrated green beans.
