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.


Wysong Au Jus

Hi all. I believe that I remember that the general consensus was that Wysong is not a good company, but I mostly see recalls of dog food listed. I'm interested in buying a couple of cans of the rabbit au jus as emergency back-ups for Blackberry's all raw rabbit elimination diet. Can anyone tell me if this is a bad idea? Thanks very much, BB's mom

    I very strongly disagree that Wysong is not a good company, but that was not your question. If I remember correctly, the Au Jus is not complete and you have to add their "Call of the Wild" supplement to it in order to feed it as a staple of the diet.

    Hi BB, I think it's a good small company. Though they do have some odd food, one being a vegetarian cat food ( ::o ). But I think it's a good enough company. Though some of their canned food (and dry) has too much grain etc., in my opinion. The Au Jus doesn't have any supplemention, as Amber said, so it has to be fed sparingly or have supplements added (taurine, calcium and other vitamins). But it's good that it's only meat.

    Wysong Au Jus It's only a supplemental food. There are no vitamins and minerals in the food. Quote: Use as a supplement to basal dry diets, and rotate with fresh foods and Wysong TNTâ„¢ raw foods as described in the Wysong Optimal Health Programâ„¢. I would keep regular canned food as an emergency back uo food source.

    Thank you everyone. Ok, I mis-remembered about the reputation of Wysong and that is good, the more good pet food companies we have the better off we all are!:D Actually, I do know that the au jus meats are not complete diets so don't worry, I have no intention of making the au jus rabbit a staple of any cat's diet. I really do mean "emergency" back-up, as in case of power outages (unfortunately all too common here), needing to have the neighbor feed the cats for a meal or two, etc. They would just be sitting around otherwise. I'm probabaly paranoid, but I feel uncomfortable not having something around just in case!:) Oh, and he's supposed to be eating rabbit only, so while I love, and feed, Instinct canned all the time, the number of other ingredients it has makes it not suitable for the 3 month elimination diet. Thanks again for all of your replies! BB's mom
