    I and Love and You Whascally Wabbit Pate formula change

    It's been a few years since I fed Sylvie this food (she lost her taste for it, as with so many other foods!). I took a look at it again on Chewy and saw that its ingredients have changed--for the better! The product page still touts "whole food ingredients" like apples, cranberries, spinach, and...

    Increasing water intake for a cat with 0 thirst drive

    Sylvie eats only wet food (either canned with a little extra water added, or fully rehydrated freeze-dried raw) and has always ignored the water in her water bowl. For the most part, I don't worry about it, because she's getting plenty of liquid from her food, but I did mention it to our vet...

    Happy heavenly birthday to your dear girl!

    How do you handle pushback from your veterinarian?

    I ordered some Lotus Pork Pate in order to approximately replicate the taste of the Primal pork nuggets. Sylvie scarfed it up and then promptly barfed it up. I cleaned up the barf, tossed out the remaining Pork Pate, and served one of the usual Primal pork nuggets. All is well. For now at least...

    How do you handle pushback from your veterinarian?

    Do you put them in a plastic bag before you whack them?

    How do you handle pushback from your veterinarian?

    Thank you for these suggestions, daftcat! I will keep them in my back pocket in case any constipation problems develop. Sylvie did get constipated when I first gave her freeze-dried raw and was so pleased with her energy level, coat condition, etc. that I got carried away and fed her nothing...

    How do you handle pushback from your veterinarian?

    I searched for this topic after Sylvie's checkup at the cat hospital this morning and appreciate the experiences everyone has shared. Her vet has a specialty in geriatric feline medicine and I like her very much; she also cared for my previous cat, who lived to 21.5. She told me today that she...

    Best freeze dried food

    Primal responded to my inquiry very promptly! Here's what they said: "Our frozen and freeze-dried nuggets are the same formula, so the bone content will be the same for each option. Here are the bone amounts for our feline formulas: Beef & Salmon: 6% Chicken & Salmon: 10% Duck: 10% Pork: 6%...

    Best freeze dried food

    Thanks, @lisahe ! I hope you and your girls are doing well too! We are fine. Sylvie had me concerned a few days ago because she spat up clear liquid a few times in one day, but then I read some vet blogs that said that was a common "pre-hairball" symptom. Sure enough, yesterday morning, while I...

    Pumpkin supplement for cats

    Sylvie is one of those cats. I tried adding a bit of Libby's pumpkin puree to her food and she refused it, but she eats Rawz rabbit & pumpkin canned food with no complaints.

    Best freeze dried food

    Sylvie loves Primal pork too. I hadn't ordered it in a while and noticed a recent Chewy review said that bone is now the second-listed ingredient (used to be third). I just emailed the company to ask for the percentage of bone content in all of their flavors; they redid their website and removed...

    Dr Elsey wet food... smells weird?

    Haven't tried the chicken, because my cat can't tolerate chicken. I introduced Dr. Elsey's pork pate a few days ago, though. It smells fine to me, and Sylvie seems to like it. Are the other pates you've bought also chicken? I wouldn't expect chicken to smell like Spam or hot dogs, since those...

    What are you feeding your cat?

    Between Sylvie's intolerance to chicken (and, to a lesser extent, turkey) and her fussy palate, the menu here is very limited and very expensive. The mainstay is Rawz rabbit--Sylvie likes both the plain variety and the one with pumpkin--with occasional meals of freeze-dried raw food as a treat...

    Try Redbarn Naturals Canned Pate!

    For the record, there is no safety issue that I am aware of. I just feel that I need to listen to what my cat is telling me and switch to a food that she finds acceptable.

    Try Redbarn Naturals Canned Pate!

    Aaaand she's gone off it, as of today. I dished it out for dinner and it just sat there. Then Sylvie started complaining in a tone that suggested it was simply unacceptable. I thought perhaps something was wrong with that particular can, so I sniffed what was still in it and agreed it smelled...

    What to feed a loud and picky eater

    I’m guessing that @deckm00 is using “meal” in the British English sense of the word, meaning “grain” (for instance, what we in the US call whole-wheat flour is called wholemeal flour in the UK).

    Remembering Krista

    Daft, I'm visiting this site for the first time in a while and am saddened to learn of your darling Krista's passing. You cared for her with such patience, persistence, and devotion...no cat could have wished for a better caregiver and companion.
