She was rescued at 4 weeks of age and given care needed for strong growth while malnourished as a feral can be living in freezing cold weather. While the extreme cold elements took her other 6 siblings due to malnutrition and hyperthermia which is extremely painful since I suffered from it in my hands. I would recommend this product mixed with warm water mixed also Churu Treats. Gives kittens and cats nutrients and also water which is extremely necessary in proper balanced diet. Without water, kittens, cats wild not survive without life threatening G.I. issues! Very important to INCLUDE kittens, cats (domestic and especially feral) WATER in all the food!
My cat recently got his molars and premolars removed due to a chronic condition and needs to eat soft food for the rest of his life. I was desperate for a softer dry food I could leave in his automatic feeder for when I travel or am out for the day, and after lots of trial and error, this fit the bill! It’s soft enough that he can “chew” it with his gums and get it down and he looooves the turkey flavor. The pieces are HUGE though, so I need to break them up by hand.
When I first started ordering this for my cars the morsels were so soft, wonderful for my dental issue kitties, but in recent months morsels have been very hard, last back I had to throw put because they were hard as rocks. Did Stella & Chewy's manufacturing process change or is this due to a storage issue?
My cat's health took a nosedive and I couldn't pinpoint what was causing it for the longest time. The vet couldn't figure it out either. It turned out that the kibble I was feeding her (Nulo brand) was upsetting her GI system, causing her to vomit frequently and have the worst smelling bowel movements I've ever smelled in my life. I don't know why it took me so long to figure it out but I'm glad I did because she turned into skin and bones from losing so much weight. I quit feeding the Nulo kibble, and she is now eating this and a a different brand of kibble but she will hardly touch kibble these days, so she's eating this almost exclusively. She is doing SO much better! I have my old kitty back. This food is very expensive but in my opinion, when you take a pet in, you have an obligation to give them what they deserve, which includes high quality food that isn't going to harm them. Something has happened to the pet food industry within the last few years and it seems that a lot of people's pets are reacting badly to pet foods that were previously okay. Even the high quality foods have taken a nosedive in recent years. Something is terribly wrong with the pet food industry and our pets deserve better. I'm glad this freeze-dried cat food is available because I've lost trust in most pet food brands.
I use this as treats and to add something special to his wet food. I live in a high fire area so I also put a bag of Stella & Chewy's Tummy Ticklin' Turkey in my kitty's go-bag.
Normally these are soft as easily crumbled for ferret soupies and as treats but both bags I got are hard and even in hot water they dont crumble. Very disappointed for the amount of money spent !
