Thailand is not China, don't paint it with a broad brush. Thailand has very good controls and regulations regarding their food processing...
Pet Foods Made in Thailand
i didn't mean anything against thailand except where they get their fish. they're much closer to japan than we are, so i don't know. i'm already kind of leery of fish, i probably shouldn't have bought the one with talapia (it's not middle east feast, it's the other one) but my cats have always been fish and chicken nuts. i'm not exactly worried as much as i'd just prefer US made pet food (i love thai food myself, and if i die, i don't care nearly as much as if i killed my cats or made them sick
) if it were made in china, i hate to say it but i doubt if i would have bought it. another person mentioned the human-grade processing facility but then had doubts about her own
food lmao. but since i don't eat fish or chicken or any of that, i don't have to worry about it. it seemed like kind of weird logic too, because she said something like, "that's fine for the cats but then what if my food is made alongside cat food?" well, if it's a plant with human consumption standards, it's not like your food would be contaminated by offal and rotting slurry, so i don't see the problem.
glad to see so many people love it, i knew there was just something about it:jump
whoever said they respond quickly (sorry, there were a lot of people i wanted to reply to and three names is my CRS memory limit lol) then: i'm glad to hear that. see? you just never know when you read things online. one person was complaining about that--but it was one of the lone less than stellar reviews. i paid NO attention at all to the one that said, "my cat started gaining weight on it and i was feeding 1/2 what they recommend, and he also developed urinary tract problems." um. lol (well, i tend to read between the lines when i see something like that where there are 28 5-star reviews and 1 2-star and 1 1-star, so my first thought was, "were you starving your cat before you bought that?" and also that i highly doubt it caused
ut problems, they were most likely already there and possibly more protein exacerbated it.
but if mowmow and dweamgoil feed it, hey, that's good enough for me (and yes, the rotation thing made enough sense). i'm not unhappy with blue buffalo at all, my cats just get a little bored with it so if that's all they're getting (thank god they aren't dry food junkies) i figured i might as well mix it up a little.
i think i liked the lower-calorie part, i don't remember a count for phosphorus but that was why i didn't choose EVO 95% (it's probably fine food, but it is pretty heavy on that), and i can't remember all that i looked at. weruva caught my eye (i almost just bought it first because i liked so many things about it, then i thought i had better look at a few) because i thought, "wow, those pictures look like my plate at wild bangkok," lol. that and the names of the different flavors reminded me of ben & jerry's haha.
