We have a lot of new kitties and I'm asking for you to put out a welcome paw two when when you have time. went to Rainbow Bridge today after a very short life here on earth. We here at the Junction hope you will stop in and give a few words of comfort. a beautiful fur named Romeo has 51 friends.

They have been busy readying their pages for you all to visit. So please give them a big Catster welcome.

I have also been asked about the great cat food I have been feeding my guys. I will say Grandma Human put her cat on it a few weeks back and she said she has already seen a big difference. It's Blue Buffalo. They have many types of food for many tastes.

Wilderness chicken is Grandma Human's kitties choice. Ours is, Healthy Mature and Freedom the grain free formula. They are not cheap. You will find they eat a lot less of it because the nutritional needs are satisfied and hungry becomes a thing of the past.

They are so much more active and their fur sheds less and their new bodies look super. We have been giving it to our main house guys for almost a year. The Freedom is new. Our guys are loving it.

It seems all vets are programed to Science Diet and that's because Science Diet supports the vet schools. My guys have never done well on it. My carpets are a testament to that.

I had better luck with Purina prescription. The food just got to pricey. The results were not that apparent and my diabetic just kept gaining weight. . Most vets will shun anything sold in a store.

Many brands, I agree they are junk. But I believe the new generation of premium diets are going to make them do some changes to their thinking and foods. A good blessing for us cats and dogs too. My Human has a nutrition background for Humans and applies a lot of the knowledge she has accumulated over the years to all types of animals. Blue seems to fit the bill, she says.

Grandma Human became interested as when she stayed with us. She noticed the big difference in their lack of hairball problems and leaving gifts about. She was sold. She was so surprised that her finicky cat loved it at first site. I told her to be careful and mix it with her regular food. She told me the other day that miss finicky, is just eating the new stuff and picking through and leaving the rest.

So give it a try if you can. I would still keep another of your cat's favorite brand on hand. Offer it least once or twice a week. I always believe in a back up in another brand. Just in case your supplier can't get what you want, you have a backup they like. Also give some canned foods. Blue has some good choices our guys like Wilderness salmon the best. For those who make their own foods you just might ck this out. Worth the effort.

OK, enough of the advertizing. But, I was being asked. "Just some good food for thought". TEE HEE and Winkie Winkie!!!!!

Romeo's already my bud, but we stopped by Penelope's page to leave a message and ask to be friends. Thanks for telling us about her.

I have been eating some Blue Wilderness Wild Delights canned food. Ashlynne won't eat it -- she only wants Fancy Feast.

Yes it is expensive. The first few bags the cat will eat just like it is your old food. Part way through the second bag you will notice a big slow down as his nutritional needs are be met. They eat a lot less. The expense becomes nearly the same because the bags are lasting much longer then with the old food. Also you will have a happier, healthier cat with a beautiful coat. You will find less throw ups, less shedding, less clean up and less pooh in the litter box. Thus you use less litter and less cleaning supplies and less time cleaning up hair. So in the end it is a, win win. Worth the initial investment, we found.
