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.
I\'m new and was hoping to pick your brain. I\'ve done a search about the subject, but I still have some questions. Here\'s the situation:
I have two cats, Remi and Mephistopheles, who have been on Science Diet Light all of their adult lives. I recently read up on cat nutrition (as I was reading about human nutrition) and discovered that it was very important to change their food. I went to our local cats-only store (Madkatz!) and bought 1 month\'s worth of Innova EVO.
I had just enough Science Diet left to do one week of transition.
During the transition, they seemed so healthy! I was amazed. Their coats got softer, Mephisto stopped wheezing so much, *gross part* their poops didn\'t smell as bad. I was excited.
Now, they\'ve been eating exclusively the EVO dry kibble. Mephisto pukes up his food almost every other day. Most of it is undigested, so I\'m guessing that\'s because he\'s eating too quickly. Now there are four feeding times a day of 1/8 c. His puking remains, still mostly undigested.
Remi\'s stool has gotten nearly unbearable. They\'re very soft, sometimes almost liquid. I feel so bad for the poor girl!
They both have water at all times, and I\'ve noticed they\'ve started drinking more water after eating the EVO.
I\'m wondering if any of you smarty smarts out there have some answers for us! Should we switch to a different grain-free brand or will this go away as their digestive tracts get more used to the EVO?
