There is more to healthy cat food than a catchy name — and the name Tiki Cat Food by Gourmet Carnivore is certainly eye catching. The name is romantic just like the lore of Tiki, that originated in the South Pacific and on the island of Hawaii. Here there are many Tiki gods strewn throughout the rainforests, oceanside cliffs and beaches of this beautiful island. In the 1930’s the lore of Tiki came to the mainland of the United States with the opening of a restaurant called Don the Beachcomber that served up Cantonese cuisine and exotic rum cocktails with names such as zombie, headhunter and fog cutter!
Along with Tiki bars and restaurants, a musical genre arose in the 1950s called exotica. The most famous musicians of “exotica” include: Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman and Martin Denny. The music is pure fantasy and combines jazz with sounds of the tropics as people imagined them to be with a dash of the orient. The name exotica comes from an album (yes album) by Martin Denny of the same name.
