Bad Cat Food

Postby JO 753 » Fri Apr 14, 2017 8:42 am

For several months my cats hav been rejecting the cat food. I get them Fansy Feast mostly and sum flavorz uv the cheaper normal size canz, also frum Purina.

Alot uv stuff haz sat on a plate all day, finally left on the porch for the possumz & racoonz.

Tonite I opened 2 canz uv Purina Friskies with Garden Greenz and put them on a plate on the porch to see how the possum who iz usually the 1st guy to show up liked it.

He didnt. He ignored it and munched on the Purina Dog Chow dry food thats 20$ for a 55 pound sack! Relatively awful stuff that iz usually the last thing they eat. And keep in mind that possumz will eat just about anything. They will eat their own poop if therez nothing else!

My oldest cat died yesterday (aNJE, 19) and now I'm wondering if there may be another melamine type situation going on, exept not melamine, rather sumthing animalz can smell.

I'm going to feed them real meat only from now on. The risk uv poizon iz too great, plus money wasted on 'food' that gets tossed out.

Normally I would suggest that you try it yourself, but in this case maybe you should just flush it.

my cat wouldn't eat canned wet food, she only licked the gravy off of it....dry food is best for cats and dogs...and scraps of meat...sorry for the loss of your cat...

My cats hav particular tastes. PiWaKIT (aNJE'z dotr) likes seafood mostly. FREZ likes Meow Mix (dry crunchy cat food) and the salmon&shrimp Fansy Feast (wich he haz been rejecting for months), and canned salmon. aNJE'z fave food wuz raw beef, raw chicken and deli counter slised sandwich meat. HiZeNBRG likes a variety. I havent figured out wut PaNDORU preferz yet.

I will haf to keep buying the Meow Mix kuz they all like it and it's FREZ'z main food. But I'll be regularly searching the newz for any reports uv poizoning.

Pet food haz alwayz been bad, but now with a Trump appointee likely to be an assclown, you can bet its going to get much worse.

You have my sincere sympathy. I would be crushed.

On a cheery note, remember that cats were only domesticated by humans about 4,500 years ago, and all cats have vowed to take revenge on humans, for taking them from the wild, by destroying furniture, taking over half the available bed space, spraying inside and forcing humans to open endless numbers of cat food tins, simply to walk away from.
:D
