Created in Partnership with Whiskas® a Savory Feast for Your Cat

It's been brought to our attention that several of you have voiced objections to our recent content partnerships with the makers of such incredible products as Tree Top®, Chunky Soups, and Reddi-wip®. We, and our partners at Whiskas®, just want you to know that we hear you loud and clear.

For more than 20 years now, The Stranger has maintained our commitment to excellence. Our spotless record of covering news, politics, social justice, arts, gay, and food free from outside bias speaks for itself. But we're not complacent. There has never been a more important time to renew the principles of independence that have made us the number-one newspaper in the best city on earth. And no company understands the rigors of maintaining high ethical standards while navigating the shifting sands of media in the digital age better than Whiskas®, which is why we're proud to introduce them to our family of branded content partnership solutions. Although any cat will tell you: They need no introduction. Just ask our friend Scruffles, the GOP kitten. After a long day of wondering how many dead Americans' bodies were desecrated by the smoldering pile of deleted Benghazi-related e-mails by Madame Secretary Clinton, there's nothing Scruffles likes better than a big crunchy bowl of Whiskas®.

Isn't that right, Scruffles?

Warm regards,

The Stranger
