Foooood glorius fooood

Speedy here, I need to ask yoo guyz sumfing. Mom changed our food over to Wellness cuz she's skared about what we mite be eeting wif all da recalls. We used to get Purina One for Sensitive Systems (mostly cuz of my tummy trubbul). Now, I eet it. Well I'll eet just about anyfing. Like, when dad haz dat salami stuff I always ask fur some and he gives it to me effun tho mom sez not to and den I get a tummy ake and den mom sez "see yoo shoodent haf given him dat sawsije" and I think well yeah, maybe I shoodent eet dat stuff den da next time dad has it, I forget dat it makes me icky and I eet some more...uh, where wuz I? Oh yeah, so she gots dis Wellness stuff and Zippy won't touch it. Mom's kinda mixing it in da bowl wif our old food and Zippy just picks around it. Sadie will go two fur one, two Purina chunks to one Wellness and she don't spit it out or nuthing so we think she'll eat it. Da prollem we'z haffing is dis, when all da Purina is gone do yoo think Zippy will eat da Wellness? Mom duzzent want to go back to da other stuff cuz of all da recalls and kitties getting sick and stuff, but if Zippy won't eat it den it's not doing any good fur her.

Hopefully Zippy will slowly come to accept it. The so-called experts recommend slowly mixing the new food into the old one, gradually increasing the amount of the new food. My humans have done that when I switched foods, and I've had no problems with it.

If Zippy doesn't like the Wellness, there are other good foods you can try (if you can find them in your area) like Orijen and Felidae. Those are two other brands that my humans have heard nothing but good things about.

All I have to say about the Wellness is YUCK! I wouldn't touch it with a 20' pool. But that's me, I'm very picky. I think you would probably like Innova or California Natural (Made by Natura). Either that or Pet Guard. They are very good foods that actually taste good too!

A food changeover has to be done very, very gradually, mixing the new with the old over a period of weeks. Cats don't like change and sometimes will refuse something new unless it's introduced so slowly they don't notice it. Crew eats Iams, and so far it hasn't been on any of the "bad" lists. George is very picky about what he eats, so I alternate between different types of Iams just to give them a flavor break, plus it seems to make him vomit less!

Hi Speedy! ::waves paw madly:: Stop eatin' sausage if it's makin' you sick! I want you to be well.


Daisy said...

Pixie said to tell you that maybe if you put bananers on top she will eat it.

The pink sweater is 16 inches around and 9 inches long. The blue one is 18 inches around and 10 inches long. I can make larger or smaller, I will do my best to fit your precious loved one.

Ariel is my only fussy one, ad so far I've been lucky with all the switching I've been doing lately. I just bought Solid Gold, which I got at a health food store, but they haven't tried it yet. It was recommended by Cheysuli and Bonnie on Mom Robin's spreadsheet link.

We loves our Wellness, but they just changed their form-you-la an I like the new stuff better while Bonnie don't like change. What kind are ya gettin? Mom's gettin us the Indoor Form-you-la, but the reglar adult cat food comes in diffrint flavors an she mite like one better than anofur. The Super 5 is what's goin away. There's also a new vershun called Core that we's hafn't tried yet.

Bonnie's mean. She says if Zippy gets hungry enuf, she'll eat it.
I'm wif you, Speedy - I want whatefur Dad's got.

Kim and Oscar the Puppy Cat said...

Since I only like cat food, I don't mind switching. However, I have a very sensative tummy so my Mommy is staying with what doesn't make me yack. Sorry I can't be of much help. I just wanted to put in my 2 cents cause I'm feeling sassy today. I hope you work it our. There are some great suggestions!

Thanks for telling me how you got your names. I love hearing everyone's story!

Wellness is good, we like wellness! I hope Zippy will come around.

And I want to thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. :)

Tara said...

I so far haven't found a dry I don't like, its the wet I'm picky about. But you might want to try Evo if Zippy doesn't come around. I love it..

We don't think the ants are carpenter ants cuz the bug man showed us carpenter ants once and they were much bigger than these little guys. These little guys are like the odorous house ants or piss ants. We don't know for sure which they are. Maw calls them sugar ants too.
