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.
Changing to wet food diet, few questions.
Hey, new guy here!
My wife and I have three cats, two female American Longhairs and a male American Shorthair (who is spoiled rotten I'd like to add). They have been getting a diet of Purina Catchow indoor formula in a free graze setup and a variety of Friskies soft in the afternoons, usually one can split between the three of them.
I'm going to switch to an all soft food diet and would like some input. I've read up on Catinfo.org and have been browsing the forums here as well.
Is it considered ok to switch their soft food up. Say Wellness one day, Natural Balance the next, etc?
Has anyone used Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul soft food? What are your thoughts on this brand? After doing some reading I came across this stuff and it seems pretty healthy for a decent price. I picked up a couple cans and my cats seem to absolutely love it!
Lastly, a question about portions; The Chicken Soup can basically says each cat should have two cans a day but I can tell you they are not eating that. I've split two can's between the three of em morning and night last couple of days and there is usually a bit if untouched food on their plates. Should I be concerned that they aren't eating enough or is this ok?
FYI; one female is 8lbs, the other 11lbs, and the spoiled boy is 15.5LBS(!!!!). Thanks for any input!
