Just remember to cancel your subscription once your first order has shipped. Don't cancel it before they have processed it, or it can cancel your first order.

hot!
as for cancelling your subscribe and save orders after you've taken advantage of the discount. fair play. but bear in mind there is a system in place to permanently block you from having them at all if you do this too often.

what you have to remember is that the people who buy this sort of stuff … what you have to remember is that the people who buy this sort of stuff are barely able to feed themselfs correctlyso for them its always going to be about saving money and not the welfare of their catbut its not all bad news, at least its not dry food



Why don't you let everyone know which cat food you buy then?

Personally I've thought about the food my mother feeds her cat but I haven't really looked into enough, I was aware that dried food was especially bad for their kidneys? if I remember rightly.

Remember Amazon are into Tax Evasion Amazon claimed sales in the UK of … Remember Amazon are into Tax Evasion Amazon claimed sales in the UK of £207m last year. How much did Amazon UK actually take? £2.9bn , though this is a good price.


yeh but the second they have to pay tax on 100% of their sales, means us the customers suffer with higher prices.

about this cat food, is it renowned for being particularly bad then?

EDIT- ive looked into it and cant find anything substantial, besides ive been to an animal carcus factory, and its not pleasant but the fact is every part of the animal is being used, we dont want to eat it cos its pretty wrank, but theres nothing wrong with it and cats dont care, so the fact that this food is 96% animal by-product only means its not good enough animal parts for humans. same with dried food, that comes from bonemeal. i dont know what the manufacturer adds in after this stage but im pretty sure it cant be much worse then the additives added to the food we eat.

Thank you. As I have never tried it, can't comment on it being full of rubbish so will just add it to their dried food lol.

i try to avoid buying any sort of cat food, mine usually get real meat … i try to avoid buying any sort of cat food, mine usually get real meat but i will admit feeding a rubbish tin of cat food in an emergencyyour right about the kidney problems and it causes a lot of other illnesses as wellhttp://www.catinfo.org/easy to comment on it being rubbish, you just look at the ingredientsMeat and animal by-products (incl. 4% of the specified variety), vegetable by-products, fish and fish by-products, vegetables (min. 4%), minerals, sugar. sugar oO


there isnt anything harmful in the ingredients youve listed, but i admit the site you posted looks like a good read so will have a look at that now.
i think its important that cats have a varied diet like we do, just giving them dried food will dehydrate them. one of my cats now only eats a special diet dried food for FLUTD as hes suffered from him several times through his life. He doesnt drink much water on his own, so he has his dried food mixed in water, almost like cereal lol! but he seems to like it.

Edit, have you read this page "WhatsThePoint"?
"If your cat is on a properly hydrated diet of 100% canned food - and no dry food - you stand a very good chance of never needing to read this webpage."
so why are you using this site as a source for your argument against the food listed on this page?

and to backup my earlier post:
"By-products are not necessarily low quality protein sources. In fact, they can be extremely nutritious. However, there is more variability when quality is being considered when compared to muscle meat. "
i really dont see why you guys have an issue with this cat meat. It is for cats not humans!

You have to remember that it "can" cause kidney failure if on dry food..not that it WILL cause kidney failure.
I have always kept an eye on my cats drinking habits and they drink "a lot".
We have 2 cat water fountains in the house going 24/7 and they drink from it at least 3 times a day each (and I am only around for 1 hour in the morning and evenings..so no doubt they use it more than that.
They also a rain water catchment in the back garden which they always go to after they go to the toilet in the morning.

One of my cats also insists on water from the bath whenever I go to the toilet.

They do massive pees in the cat litter tray too so a decent amount of fluid is going through them.

But then I also regularly give them fresh meat and fish.

It is about knowing your pets needs and ensuring that they are met. I could tell you straight away if my cat is not feeding, eating etc..most owners would not have a clue.

Actually whatsThePoint, I feed my cats better than I feed myself. In general they eat day old chicks and other raw meats but they do occasionally like this 'McDonalds' food and even the occasional snack of Science Plan dry food (shock horror). Isn't variety good for everyone?

have you seen cats eating vegetables in the wild? can you show me a link … have you seen cats eating vegetables in the wild? can you show me a link which says highly processed food is good for humans? no independent tests have been done to see what damage it causes in catshistory is full of examples of something that was said to be good on release and proven bad in time


yeh i get your point completely but the key is variety. Dont just give them processed meats, or just dried food. Make sure they take on board plenty of water day to day. Do you never give your cats treats? cats may not each vegetables in the wild but there is nothing wrong with cats eating vegetables unless theyve evolved so much that they cant digest them and they actually become harmful to them. and besides wouldnt you rather the minerals come from the veggies rather then added synthetically?
and how do you know the food your giving your cats isnt keeping them as health as canned meats do? wild cats probably arent as healthy as a pet cat.

Thanx OP. Bought 4 different varieties (192 sachets) using this deal. All but 1 of the choices were the same price with the other one not much more.


Oh and my vet sells Royal Canine dry food which i feed cat with as well. Mine did enjoy raw turkey last night though. I can't see how any wet food could be a benefit for their dental health compared to dry food.

I've had 4 cats prior to this one and they have all lived 20 years plus so they have just been lucky if you read some of these comments. In general domestic cats will outlive wild cats end of story.

I don't like the 4% meat content, and I personally try to find my cat food with a one much higher (e.g. 50-70% is achievable without paying excessive amounts) but I have to admit that this food is still designed to be a 'complete' diet so should be ok if that's what you choose to feed them, although probably not the healthiest - might lead to some fat cats!
What really bugs me is how they market this to the owners as a 'luxury' cat food and try and make it look appetizing/appealing to humans and give it fancy packaging when in reality it is no better than whiskas of felix, for example. I get annoyed that some people will probably buy it thinking that they are doing their cat a favour or looking after them better, when that's not necessarily the case.
Still a good deal though for the product, which is what the post is all about, so hot for that.

Bearing in mind how old and healthy some of my cats are, I don't think its going to be as big an issue as people think.

having had 2 cats that reached their 20's eating tinned catfood i dont think its that bad.

However I did once work for a major petfood manufacturer that tried coating the chunks with a weakened acid mix to put a skin on them to help them stay fresh and juicy or something and they were innundated with calls from concerned pet owners whos cats mysteriously started taking ill.....

Another add campaign was something along the lines of "you can tell when your cat has enjoyed his dinner he will lick his whiskers..." when in fact this was caused by some syrupy ingrediant that stuck to the cats whiskers and drove them bonkers until they washed it off....

can you explain how a dry food that contains sugar cleans a cats teeth … can you explain how a dry food that contains sugar cleans a cats teeth better that biting into flesh and bone?



For goodness sake it a pet, not a wild animal. I think anyone (other than perhaps yourself- sound like you might be more suited for sponsoring a cheetah through one of the many programs offered) excepts the fact that a domestic cat is going to have different requirements to a wild cat. The bit I can't fathom out is why you have a cat. Do you brush it's teeth or does it survive on the local rodents and bird life. My cats have all lived well beyond the age of what a wild cat would live to with no dental bills whatsoever.

I would be dead against taking a lizard or even a fish out of it's natural environment and caging it etc, and I'm totally against circus animals but think zoo animal should exist if captive bred etc.

I have domestic cats, am not prepared to brush it's teeth, don't fancy any more caught pigeons, frogs, mice in the house beyond the trophies brought in, can't imagine 'fluffy' is gonna take to being fed chicken carcasses (although I'm prepared to be educated on this point). So does fluffy starve to death, get a mixture of wet food,dry food and meat from my kitchen or should I just be banned from having a cat?

My response was to your 'flesh and bones' My cat get wet food, dry food, a dry food for dental care, and fresh meat I choose to do so.

So the dry food is better than wet food, the dental food hopefully better than normal dry cat food ( I confess I blindly accept the writing on the side of the packet from the same manufacturer I buy normal dry food from [ head in lion's mouth time]).

That is enough 'twaddle' from me on this subject but if forced to I'll word count my postings on this subject compared to your knowledgeable claptrap

Various dry cat food can be swallowed whole..therefore no chewing. This will evidently not lead to abrasion removing tartar etc.

However, this significantly reduces the level of food left on the teeth etc when compared to eating wet food.

Therefore, it may not aid in removing it..but it will aid in stopping it building up.
(So over time, it will aid in removing it by default as the levels drop back down).

The end....

It took you a long long time to find yourself a web article to agree with you.
