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, www.catster.com 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.
New Merrick - Purrfect Bistro
The new Pet Supplies Plus ad had with a new Merrick food. Looks like they rebranded some of their popular wet food like Cookboy Cookout, Turducken, Grammy's Pot Pie and add some more new flavors. The pate ones look to be carb free. (I wonder if the formulas changed? Do you think until all the "Classic" is sold out with that label they keep up on the website?) Looks like in this line they have dry food now. I know they had a dry food for dogs but I can not remember dry food other than the BG line for cats which will only be chicken or salmon now. The Purrfect Bistro dry has cellulose and whey. I'm not too wild about either one. Oh well, we will for sure try a few of the pate ones.
From there website:
What is different about Purrfect Bistro recipes?-
Cats' unique physiology makes them carnivores - meaning high quality protein and grain free foods should be a significant part of their diets. Purrfect Bistro recipes are what cats want and need - crafted to nourish kittens, adult and senior cats with a healthy diet of high-quality, natural nutrition, with real deboned meat as the No. 1 ingredient and a minimum of 70 percent protein and fat ingredients in every dry food bag. Our recipes are 100 percent grain-free, highly digestible and rich in essential fatty acids, such as omega-6s and omega-3s, to replenish cats' fur and skin to keep it soft.Purrfect Bistro also features the tastes cats love. The recipes come in feline-friendly flavors including chicken, salmon, tuna, duck, turkey and beef. While taste is paramount, texture is a close second, with recipes that feature patÃ©, shredded and sliced varieties.
