  1. some of your cat food is not fit for animals..I bought your food & my cat kept vomiting it switched to her old brand some of your canned food to stray cats & they threw up in the area I feed them. Then I read some opinions from others & they had the same bad experiences. Please stop selling unfit-for-consumption canned food & charging a high price so consumers would think it's a top-notch brand, it's not! Better check with who's processing your food. Better yet try it on your cat(s).
