The New York Daily News covers the rising cost of pet food today, with a cameo appearance by Pet Emporium owner Sam El Romi:

New York Daily News: Cats Really…: “All of a sudden – boom – prices on pet food just skyrocketed up, and people began going from premium healthy brands to cheap dog and cat chow,” said Sam El Romi, owner of Pet Emporium in Brooklyn Heights.

In the last few months, El Romi said, a can of Fancy Feast has gone from 49 cents to 69 cents. Premium Wellness has nearly doubled in price from $1 to $1.89.
