So, I grew up poor, until I was a teen. Potted canned meat was something that poor country-bred kids ate. I loved it. I still love me some mechanically separated beef-parts. It makes a scrummy breakfast. I get fowl looks for eating "cat food." But, really who else has love for the potted meat? Canned meat is bad for you. What else in potted meat, nitrtates aside, that's bad for a hungry cat-woman?

You mean sort of like rillettes? I make rillettes fairly often with leftovers and think it's delicious. Really it's only the name that is fancy--just potted meat. I would, however, try to make potted meat yourself instead of buying it in a can. Other than the excessive salt, you get questionable sourcing for the meat. (It's ridiculously easy, by the way, to make your own.)
I really love this blog for ideas if you're able and/or inclined to try making rillettes sometime, but tend to not do anything fancy myself. (Pork shoulder, salt, fat. Maybe some spices if I'm feeling fancy.)
