Rachael Ray didn't really seem to enjoy her fancy feast.

Rachael, does that even have EVOO in it? Rachael Ray has been the spokesperson for many food brands, but now she has her very own brand of all-natural pet food, called Nutrish. And to prove that her palate is just as refined as her furry friends, Ray gave everyone quite a wake-up call this morning when she sampled her line of cat food on live television, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

Although she was hesitant at first, show regular Thomas Roberts coerced her into trying it. Ray decided to go for the mackerel because she said that was the tastiest. Not to be a spoilsport, Roberts ended up eating a spoonful as well.  Later he admitted that even though the cat food was “not bad,” he said afterward, “I’m still trying to get the taste out of my mouth.”

Later today, Ray will be continuing to show her love of cats by helping to give shelter cats a makeover, with professional groomers and a photographer, which will hopefully help the felines finds new homes.
