Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Hello everyone! I have had rasha on Natural Balance for a while but after the recalls I switched to Wellness thinking it was such a great food. I just read somewhere that they are in association with menu foods? I also read about it giving some cats urinary and bladder problems? I am currently feeding him wet food and some dry food and just wondering what everyones opinion is? Thank you!! :D

    Wellness WET food is made in a menu plant. No recalls... yet? The DRY should be least I hope that it is. :?

    We were told Wellness is associated with Menu, but has a totally different source of meat than the other Menu brands...and the canned and Core dry is grain free... But who really knows what is safe- there are problems coming up from some of the raw foods (like Wild Kitty):( We feed Wellness canned and Orijen dry...

    Like the others have said, Menu does make Wellness canned food, but I am still eating it. It's one of the few brands I like! I eat the dry Wellness food and occasionally I eat the canned Wellness. I want to try Core, but it's not available in the store where Mom buys my Wellness. I think it's safe, but it's hard to tell these days. Who knows. I think any food could have a potential problem these days, especially one made by Menu. But so many high quality brands use Menu that it's hard to find a brand not using them. Merrick, Wysong (except their Au Jus lines which are made by Menu), and Solid Gold are a few of the ones that don't use Menu. There really aren't very many that don't. At any rate, I've been eating Wellness for quite some time and haven't had any problems. So I hope that's a good sign about its safety!
