The more I think about it the more fear I have about getting a new cat. I know that the biggest part is opening up my heart and making myself vulnerable to this kind of pain again, but even if I can get past that my next worry is what to feed him or her.

Who do you trust? Wet food is out. Dry food causes kidney problems. Organic food is pretty expensive. Real meat is best but then you have to add stuff and grind bones etc.

It's just all so confusing.


Sadie (named after the Beatles song "s e x y Sadie") came into my life when I rescued her from a cage in the SPCA in 1991. Then she was taken from me when she ate the tainted IAMs food in 2007. You will always be in my heart and thoughts, Sadie. There will never be another like you!

Rev 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, [be] unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

Once again, Moose Mom's advice is worth gold!!!!
Organic meat is best because the meat contains, no hormones, antibiotics, medications etc.. If you can get grass fed organic meat this is better because it's leaner and higher in omega 3's. When it's certified organic it means there are inspectors checking that the farmer is really complying. Good pure food is much better for a source of vitamins and minerals than supplements are so when you are paying a little more,you're getting vitamins and minerals along with it. Also , they will be happier. A neighbour tells me that his chickens were raised on organic grain and one day he couldn't find some organic grain so he got the conventional grain and his chickens wouldn't eat it at first, so even chickens know the difference in taste!
