For the love of god, does anyone know how to use an apostrophe anymore?

Not after they busted the hyphen open.

Kudos to you, that was good.

I thought all those were just part of having a cat for the privilege of stepping in a hair ball barefoot.

Makes sense.  Chicken and chicken liver formula containing too much choline chloride, which is used in chicken feed to make them grow faster.  Which still tells us it really isn't a good idea.

Looks like someone bought another Chinese batch of "animal origin protein" to add since the fisheries, beef, and pork plants aren't churning out enough scrap product.

And yes, I've worked dog food plants. It's farking disgusting. The offal that's not fit for rendering into base protein gets shipped to fertilizer plants.

LMAO, yeah take your cat to the vet and throw the evidence in the trash.

I will pay more for safe food. I shouldn't have to. And cost doesn't prove quality. I don't like a market in which my recourse is "stop buying the poison food your loved one ate". Fark you Adam Smith with your cold dead fist.

I had no idea Smucker's made cat food. I thought they only made jam.

Ah, yes, a housecat's natural prey.

Or, wait, do you have a tiger?

The company actually owns a bunch of different brands. They acquired two pet food companies in 2015 and 2018.

Look, we all know it says beef on the container, but it's really made of lizards and assorted insects.

Grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs and cats. :So if it's Smuckers, maybe its gotta be toxic.

Great, this is the one brand of wet cat food my 16 year-old cat will eat.  It's not exactly cheap either.  She doesn't eat this exact variety, but I still feel horrible that we might have unwittingly put her life in danger.

Mine both eat dry Purina Cat Chow.

When I adopted them, the shelter specifically said in their literature not to feed it to them, but it was all they would eat at the shelter, so they said keep feeding it to them.

They're brothers.  About 10 now.  The one was always scrawny, but he's losing weight and kinda bony now.  I don't think he's got much time left in him.  I keep them cool in the AC, and they are inside only cats.

The other brother is a big plumper.  I mean he's a real bruiser.  And he's doing well.  I think he's got a lot of years left in him.  I have to admit he is my favorite.  I got him because he looked like my old cat who died around this time of the year in 2010.

I'll miss the little one, but I think back on the journey the had from being left on a city street, still not weened, and the comfy loving life I gave them both and think to myself how lucky we all were to have each other.

The scrawny one wouldn't leave my wife's side when I was in the hospital in 2018-2019.  He was a real comfort to her on long winter nights alone.  The fat one was there for her too, but skinny boy is my fav.

Enough cat talk for one morning...


There is never enough cat talk for any morning!

Shortly after adopting our previous kitty in 2015, I had a bad medicine reaction that put me in the hospital. When I was feeling sick beforehand and after coming home to recover, she wouldn't leave my side, following me from room to room. She was such a love.

She was an old girl and passed on New Years Day 2020 (we think that's why the rest of the year fell apart). At the end, when she was sick, I didn't leave her side either.

My guy (former feral) gets Friskies. I tried giving him a couple cans of Newman's Own fancy ass cat food and he turned it down.

Been saying this for years. And yet, I know of veterinarians who continue to push garbage food at their clients. It's bizarre. Or maybe it's not, if it keeps those clients coming back.
