Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

the endless search for food

Tiggie's Mom here - I just really need to vent. I did in the forums already. I certainly do not want to keep Tig on the prescription diet forever. I am afraid that the acid will cause him other problems down the line. I just put him on it, because he still blocked even being on 90% Natural Balance wet& 10% Blue Buffalo Wilderness dry. Had to get the PH down. I don't even know how long to keep him on that food. The vets say they can have it the rest of their life, but I am not happy with the ingredients, and boy do it stink! pew! But trying to find a wet food that is low minerals, has no fish except for salmon oil, and is not shredded. I looked online so much I got a headache. I don't even know how to figure out what the mineral % should be. It's like I just want to see a can, and it is exactly what I need. I realize there is no perfect food, but this really should not be this blasted hard. Every time I think I found something, I read that it is not so good. Or Smitty won't eat it. He is doing so good without any kibble - I am so proud of him. He takes all these meds with little complaint and eats his food like a good boy. ok now I feel better. The search continues tomorrow.....

Baxter took urine acidifying pills & he lived to be 15 years old. I don't remember the name of the pills,but I'll try to find them online. They worked really well for him.
