I also think if you're going to feed your cat commercial food (Wellness and NB aren't exactly "supermarket" brand catfoods - yes, they're sold at Petco, and perhaps other places, but when I think "supermarket" brands, I tend to think of the store-brands, or things like Friskies, Whiskas, etc which are very low-quality) -- Newman's, NB & Wellness are high-quality in comparison to these brands, although perhaps not as good as a raw diet.

Animal food that is tested on animals isn't a big priority for me. I have a problem when BLEACH and things that animals are not supposed to be using is tested on animals. I want to make sure my cat is eating well and that it is approved and healthy for cats.
I hope you change your mind about buying animal food that has been tested on animals. A very popular experiment is chopping of a chunk of the animal's body after the animal has eaten the food to see what his tissue looks like. They do not clean or sew up the wounds of these poor animals and most of the animals die in their cages after a few days.

Purina is not really listed as high quality, but it's what my cats will eat, especially Cami. I'd love to feed them high-quality, top of the line food, but I can't justify the prices of most of them around my town. If my cats are eating well, happy, and healthy, that's what matters most to me.

I think more cat owners should start giving their kitties high quality food (like Royal Canine, Hill's and Wellness), regardless of the price tag. They are our babies and desserve the best
hey katerina! curious, do your kitties just drink up the fish oil or do you mix it into something? how much do you give? and i LOVE WELLNESS (dry)! i leave some out for sabo sometimes for snacking.

I give them Omega 3 fish oil, mixed in their wet food, twice a week. Only when I think their coat is not pretty enough, I will increase to at least three times a week. I just prick the capsule with a needle and squeeze the oil out. I remember Anastasia also can lick it directly (not with food - Katrine eventually found out when she spilled it on the floor).

Hee hee, yes she did! I usually do mix it with her dry food, actually. Takes less time She's also licks it straight from the capsule when I hold it.

Better than when you have to beg them to eat, even with their favorite wet food...

In gen Raw is the best,but not realistic or safe for everyone. I personally have gotten sick from it.


Innova EVO, Wellness,Instincts,Natures logic, orijen is what we feed.


I think the supermarket brands are terrible why even have a pet if your feeding it like that? wouldn't the money be better spent on gardening?.

I buy what my cats will eat. If you saw some of the prices for cat food here in my town, you would buy the supermarket brands as well! Innova is $40 a 5lb bag! Seriously, that is ridiculous.
You can rant on and on about the damn foods you keep listing IN EVERY POST YOU MAKE, but they are pretty pricey, and not everyone can afford it.
