Hello, I have had cats all my life. They always have been apart of a family. I have noticed something quite odd.. I have 2 cats one a girl and boy. I have been using fancy feast for majority of their lives. Then i have decided to change to Friskies just to give my cats a twist on food. Then all of a sudden, my male cat had trouble using the litter box. He started going out the box and one time i watched him do his thing and he only dripped urine. From right there i knew something was wrong. Cats just don't want to drip, something must be blocking him up. So, i take him to the vet and they tell me he has a blockage. Then the veterinarian tells me blockages are common on male cats. I found that weird because my cat was 16 years old and never had any issues in till i switched the food. I then said it may just be a coincidence so i didn't think nothing of it. The Vet recommended the urinary tract food made by Friskies and that's like double the price and we had no choice but to get the food. The problem went away after a week. Once he was using the box as normal i thought he fine now ill just switch back to the normal Friskies. A few days after that he got blocked up again! I then said OK maybe its just the cat not reacting right with the food so i switch to 9 lives. He lived the rest of his life blockage free and passed on thanksgiving day year 2015. We then got 2 more cats, both boys, to help the family get over the passing. These cats are kittens. We fed them the normal kitten food like we were recommend then switched to normal food. I went with the Friskies thinking nothing of it. After 1 month of feeding my cat that food, he started to get bigger.. like very big near his stomach. I thought he was just growing up because he is still less that a year old and hes a kitten. Then he started going outside the box. Now i automatically thought oh no.. not this again. I then let him do his attempted business outside the box and he peed all this blood! I then rushed him to the vet and they held him and let him urinate and the vet did a test under the microscope of his urine. They said there are crystals forming in the urine coming from what ever food we were giving him and those crystals cut up is tract causing him to bleed. I then said that's so weird the moment i start using Friskies my cats started getting urinary problems. Then the vet recommend the urinary tract food that is double the price and he got better. I have yet to get Friskies again because i believe that that food causes urinary tract issues. I haven't fed my old cat friskes almost all of his 16 years of life then the moment i do, i get problems. I get these brand new cats then the moment i switch to Friskies i get problems. Thats not a coincidence. Then i did some research. I am not the only person that has this problem with Friskies but while researching, no one assumed its the cat food its just the cat getting problems because males always get urinary problems. I find that not true. Its the food that caused male cats to get urinary tract infections and females don't get affected by it because their tract is obviously different. Then that got me thinking... What if the company purposely put something in the food that causes urinary problems then you take your cat to the vet then they recommend that charged up urinary cat food that's double the price then they make more money? What if this whole urinary tract thing is just a setup? Its the corporations trying to make more money selling double the price food. How do they get people to buy double the price food? They use the love of our pets so you will not hesitate to buy that food to make your pet that you love get better. Please if this has happened to your cat and you feed he for she Friskies please spread the word. Corporations that do these evil type of things just to make an extra buck should be put away for life. If you are reading this and your saying this guy is crazy, just do your own research on this you will be surprised. Friskies isn't the only cat food company doing this.
