My 72-year-old mother is in her early stages of dementia, but refuses to get treatment or seek help. A few days ago, she finds an opened tin can in the fridge. Thinking it was salmon or tuna, she takes one bite before realizing that something wasn't right. A few days later, I take an opened can of food from the fridge.
Mom realised that she ate cat food.

Don't have Mom try the cat treat Temptations. One time I gave Dad a bag so he could give treats out for the cat, but he misunderstood me and he ate a couple pieces. He said it was ok. So brave me, I tried one.... oh gross, I couldn't get that taste out of my mouth for hours :0

Or if it was a smart cat, it would negotiate for some of the turkey to make up for the cat food loss.

That's cute, but I'll bet kitty wondered where her/his food went!

Thanks for sharing yet another adventure in dealing with dementia.

ROFL. I'm glad cat food is okay to eat.
