Indeed, an very beautiful marked kitten. She is probably just your typical Domestic Short-hair though. The calico coloration can be found in multiple different cat breeds, but I say Domestic Short-hair for their commonness as well as the fact I do not see and breed specific traits. If you'd like a cat of that coloration. I'd suggest checking out Petfinder , and I am sure you can find loads in your area. There is even a dilute calico coloration which is the grey, white, and orange. Rather than the black, white, and orange. Very pretty as well in my opinion. Keep in mind though they typically cats of these coloration are all females. happy dance

Food & Nutrition > Throwing his nose up...again! (Nutro or Holistic Select)

Thank you everyone for the information! I have been reading and hearing, many good things about the Holistic Select and I am finding myself leaning towards that brand. The nearest place that carries this food though is an hour drive, one way. So, the transition to a new cat food may need to wait a few weeks until I get my new debt card in the mail. That will certainly make life simpler, always have been nervous though of CC or DC, due to so much identity theft. Hubby convinced me though, that it will make our lives simpler.

Anyway, I have read many reviews on Nutro, so they still have my attention. I guess I have a few weeks to decide. The thing that concerns me are the grains that are contained in Nutro, as Brownie mentioned it seems to me that Holistic have better grains.

Thank you, Brownie as well for the other food suggestions. I will certainly take a look at the websites.

@ Shadow- To clarify things for the sake of a disagreement. Yes, I have been using Chicken Soup Dry for my cats and Taste of the Wild for me dog. The local pet store that I get my pet food from, checked every one of their bags during the recall. All of the bags they had in stock were all clear. So, no worries and I appreciate the concern greatly smile

As some know before the recall I had switched both Sylvester and Stinkers over to Chicken Soup Dry Adult Formula. At first both absolutely loved it, now once again Stinky is refusing to eat it and has been getting into the outdoor cats (neighborhood strays) meow mix. Which has been causing him to throw up.

This is the SECOND grain-free cat food that Stinky has done this with, first Taste of the Wild both venison and canyon river. Now, Chicken soup. I don't know the reason why he is doing this but it is become very stressful and taking a lot of money out of the budget. Any thoughts or suggestions on this, on why he could be doing this?

As of right now, I am thinking that perhaps he just doesn't like the grain-free diet. I am thinking of two brands...either NutroMax or Holistic Select. If anyone would care to give more information about them other than what I can find on their websites, that'd be awesome and greatly appreciated! kitty

Thanks!
From and stressed cat mom.eek

I thought that article that Dorian wroth was simply lovely. Everything, she had stated is very true. We care for each of our animals, we ponder over which food to feed, what vet to take them too, worry if the sneeze for cripes sake. An its not only cats either, that this goes along with, its every animal that is in our home.

I have a dog, 2 cats, and mouse...and we're adopting a guinea pig, which we're bring home this weekend hopefully. Although, the guinea pig is not here yet, but the animals that are currently with me..I view them as my fur-kids, yes even Stewart my mouse. They are the most important thing to me, and my fiance of-course.

I agree! DO NOT add water to dry cat food! It indeed does create harmful bacteria that will mess with cats stomachs! Sometimes I add chicken broth over dry cat food, but that is rare occasions and it is taken away almost as immediately as I put it out.

Food & Nutrition > A change in food = a bad idea

Hello Hunter wave

I have to agree with Wallace on this. I personally think that the cause for the loose stool, is due to the sudden food change/rotation. As well all know, cat systems are quite sensitive to drastic changes. I wouldn't give up on the new food. Personally, I would just slow down the process a bit, by mixing the two wet foods together possible. Maybe a ratio of like 1/4 new food, 3/4 old for about a week or so, then 2/4 new and 2/4 old, and so on and so forth. I wish you the best of luck, keep us posted on how Hunter is doing! wishes

Food & Nutrition > What do you think of these ingredients for cat food?

Ugh, I am getting so very FRUSTRATED with cat foods. With Stinky being a VERY finicky either everything just keeps getting harder and harder. I have been looking intensely in the cat food Chicken Soup for Cat Lovers Soul. That too has Spinach in it, but it isn't as high up on the ingredients list, as it is in the Serengeti.

All I know is I want to get him off the Purina Beyond and Iams. Like I have stated, at this point and time I am only limited to 3 options at the pet store, unless I can talk to the owners and convince them to order food for me. For practical thinking though, I'd like to think that they will not order it, and make the best decision out of the 2 of 3 foods Stinky will eat. Stinky will absolutely not eat Taste of the Wild: Venison or Canyon River. He literally starves himself..literally. That's the reason he got stuck back on Iams.

So, the choice are Felidae and Chicken Soup. I have heard Felidae contains a lot of salt, and now Chicken Soup has spinach... eek

What to do! I am going to the pet store to pick up different food this evening, and am leaning toward Chicken Soup.

As most know I have had some trouble with cat foods of recently, as my cat will not eat TOTW so now I am stuck on to finding other alternatives. Anyway, both of my cats eat wet and dry food, and they do absolutely fine.

When I had Kito, a male kitten that I had rescued. He was on the wet/dry diet as well, as going completely wet was not an option. He did absolutely fine, and grew up into a young adolescent quite nicely. One thing I can say though is try to stay away from feed "fishy" wet food often. Once in a while its fine, but if fed to frequently it can cause Urinary Tract infections and Urinary stones, particularly in male kitties.
