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.


EVO 95% Complete Diet?

Are the EVO's 95% canned foods a 'complete' diet? Meaning my sister has a cat who has food allergies, she's wanting to know if it's okay to feed these (venison formula) as the complete diet, or would she have to feed something else as well?

    All the EVO foods are complete =; They contains all the necessary vitamins and mineals. Something that is a 100% meat or seafood formulation would not be nutritionally completely because the only ingredient would be the meat or seafood plus water for processing, maybe a few other ingredients as binding agents or such. These foods would be only supplemlents/treats. Fancy Feast Appetiziers is one such food, though the labels don't say 100% or anything :-k As a general rule, if it contains vitamins and minerals, then it nutrionally complete. Be sure to closely read the label, too. The teeny tiny print will say nutritionally complete, or if it's not, then something along the lines of "intended for supplemental feeding only"

    Thanks for the info! I'll pass it on to her. I feed Raw so haven't researched canned foods for about a year :) so I couldn't remember for sure, I thought it was.

    Yup, that's one of the flavors I used to eat for my allergies before I went raw. That one's good and the Natural Balance LID venison is good too. For me anyway!
