Meow mix cat food about killed my cat, UTI!! Warning!!
Boise my 5 yr old beautiful cat about died. Im having financial problems and bought this brand, I know there are many brands like this full of ASH! Do not feed your cats dry food wish this especially neutered males. Vet bill on a Sunday 300 bucks! If I didn't take him in he would of died. I contacted the company and told them that they should pay my bill, it was their fault. They will get back to me. All cat food with ash should be banned!!!!

Wow I did not know this. I fed my cat MeowMix for 19 years he just died last month. Did they just start doing this? Ash?

Re: Meow mix cat food about killed my cat, UTI!! Warning!!
Sorry to hear about Boise. I have one cat that has allergies, so I've switched mine from the big box dry foods to Taste of the Wild cat food. No corn or wheat gluten, no ash. So far they love it. And, it truly helps with the litter box smell. All but one of mine are potty trained, so we will hopefully be able to do away with the box altogether pretty soon. It is a bit more expensive, but not as expensive as some of the other "high-end" cat foods that really aren't that much better than Friskies and such.

Re: Meow mix cat food about killed my cat, UTI!! Warning!!
My eldest cat developed cystitis (balladder/urinary tract stones) after eating Dad's cat food for years. I had no idea I was poisoning him and my other cat.

Vet put him on Prescription Diet c/d...made by Hills/science diet people. It is expensive ($51 US for 18 pounds), but all the cats get it now, and none have had any bladder probs for 5 years.

Basically, avoid ash, phosphorus, and magnesium: buy the lowest levels listed on the bag. If it doesn't list phosphorus and magnesium on the bag, don't even consider buying it. Try and couple these factors with high moisture content.

Max Cat (made by Nutri-Cat?) is a semi expensive dry food that has low ash, mag, and phos--lower than all that shit out there, even Science Diet (but not as low as Prescription Diet). I recommend Max Cat since it claims to be all natural and two ferals I took in last year were happy with it. It's $20-30 US for 20 lb. bag.

So sorry for your loss OP, but never again will you go through that. I can assure you, I got off easy through the grace of God: I still have Aleister--my mayor of cat town.

Peace.

Sorry for your loss, but don't feed your pets shit. That's like giving your cat fucking McDonald's every meal, every day. That's lowest common denominator meal. I don't even like cats and wouldn't feed them that.

That's all anyone could ask: make a change. Tell people about how cats get sick from the shit we feed them. Anyone you hear of getting a cat, you immediately tell them what not to feed them.

That's what Francis would do.

Sorry to that OP. Cats can only survive on fish. Hopefully you will give your pet only wet food in the future. Dry food is suspect.

Wet food is best: true.
Fish is good for cats: used to be true, but now...FUKSHIMA---idiot.

Better off feeding cat, people food. My male cat, lived till 18 years old, loved pizza, spagheti, olives w/pimentos, gelfilta fish, turkey slithers, he was kosher w/ human food and at the end of his last 5 years of life, didn't like cat food, and preferred human food.

Look into Inova. Best dog/cat food in my opinion. I feed it to my cat, and my 2 corgis and they are amazingly healthy and energetic. Only time I've ever had to take them to the vet was for vaccinations.

Tractor Supply sells a brand of dog food called 4HEALTH
It's all natural, all the ingredients are good stuff.

My dogs hate it compared to Purina food haha

but it truly is healthier, and I can tell. My Pekingese has stopped puking every week.

It's $22 for a 30LB bag. Cheaper than even store brand.

My cat eats Purina indoor formula. I haven't been able to find dry food that he will even touch that is healthy.

That's true, but I'm in the business of rescuing unwanted cats, so they're better off than dead to start, and I refuse to spend my life cooking for cats all day--or for 4 hours twice a week.

Altruism and Idealism doesn't work in the matrix: so do what you can.

Apparently you don't have 7 cats and work 60 hours a week.

Max Cat....you'd bre surprised.
Please don't feed your kitties purina: they don't list phosphorus/magnesium--last I checked. Please research mineral content.

I know cats are finicky, but please---no purina dry.

Okay this is the thing..most dry cat foods especially the cheapies have ash and it will cause UTI especially in neuterd males but I also had a female that had it. Now I use Purina One for urinary tract health. Not expensive. I just feel sad for all the kitties that were abadoned because of urinating outside the kitty box because they were sick wit a UTI and they avoid the place that gives them discomfort when a simple antibiotic and change in cat food would help. If you cant afford a vet then make payments like I do.

Cat must be placed in quarantine and monitored for 7-10 days. If cat acts normal, they stop looking for the person(s) who came in contact, and than I hope they start looking for a home for tough guy/gal kittie.

purina is bullshit: they don't list nag/phos content: it's not the ash. Ash isn't good, but it isn't ash that forms the stones: it's minerals. Please read some of the shit carefully.
