Cat food

Anyone ever heard of or use "Blue Buffalo Cat Food"? You can look up their site on the web. They also make dog food. It sounds good, but I'll bet it's really expensive.

Blue Buffalo is an excellent food, but yes it is not cheap. Not always easy to find either, but I would recommend it.

I got a $3 off coupon from their website. It listed 2 stores in my area that carry it. I'll go check, but the paramedics may have to revive me when I see the price! hee hee

Haha!! I've been seeing commercials for Blue Buffalo. It sounds like a very good quality food.

BLUE actually makes terrible cat food lol (although better than a lot of other foods). Quite honestly, its impossible to find a GOOD cat food. Cats are true carnivores (no debate here) meaning they are strict meat eaters. Every single cat food on the market (except for some raw foods and canned foods) have fruits and veggies.

Actually, if you're going to feed a true balanced raw obligate carnivore diet, part of that actually IS incorporating a small amount of vegetables and other things. For smaller prey like mice for example, cats eat the entire thing, meaning the stomach contents, and mice do eat vegetable matter as part of their diet along with other things. From everything I've read, feeding them entirely just meat and bones is unbalanced and promotes nutritional deficiencies, since their true, live-diet means eating the stomach contents of their prey, and depending on the prey they catch that day, and when the last time their prey ate, they'll ingest their prey's stomach contents whether it's been digested, partially digested, or not at all.

But if something hits the stomach then it is introduced to the prey's digestion, not whole food.

Most part of feeding cats raw diets is including stuff like stomachs and nutrient rich liver to incorporate that (as well as taurine)

canned food does this by supplementing vitamins into the mix
