I am usually a fan of brand names and established companies. They have lasted so long because of how they treat customers and what quality of product they sell.
As you know by now, I have two amazing cats, whom at the very least I would like to think I succeed in feeding well. So when it comes to their food, I always thought anything by Purina should do wonders.
So with very good hopes, I got “Be Happy” by Purina:
At first glance it looked like brown poop drops. Lacking color variation, and it smelled unsually bland. Still I fed it to my two darlings. How I regret it, they threw up as soon as they ate it, I thought it was just hairballs or something. Still I fed them this food, giving it the benefit of the doubt. Until a pattern of cleaning puke off the floor and them not eating unless they were super hungry. More puke. The bag still had about ten servings left when I decided to trash it. My babies had lost an impressive amount of weight, and happy cats they were not.
Lesson learned just because it has a reputable company written on the label does not mean that it will be what it advertises. My cats are not at all picky or even rare breeds, they have simple tastes, apparently this cardboard colored bland smelling garbage they call food was not to their standards. I should have known even the packaging is boring.
So my dears are back to Friskies . A wonderful product by Purina that has all my cats love, and then some I’m sure. The food not only smells delicious, but is colorful and it’s small bite size pieces. Since we been back on Friskies, my baby Nolan gained back his normal weight and so has Sammy.
This got me thinking about Animal Cops, how they claim animals are not skinny because they are being fed but because they are starving. While that is true in 99.9 percent of the cases. There is still that rare percentage of people whom I will give the benefit of doubt. I fed my cats “Be Happy” and happy I was not after they ended up looking like the malnourished cases on Animal Planet.
Lesson learned, if the food you give your pet, you can’t imagine eating yourself, then don’t expect your pet to.
