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.

Hi, Has anybody tried this? Our pet store owner is a certified pet nutritionist, and since I am about 5 - 7 lbs overweight, he suggested this. It looks like brown sugar, but I eat it right up. Was curious if anybody has tried it, and if i should be getting it dry / granular, or if my mama should mix it with some water?

    I never even heard of it. What are the ingredients?

    Chicken Meal, Menhaden Fish Meal (Select Grade), Lard (Source of Omega6 and Omega3 Fatty Acids), Poultry By-Product Meal, Undefatted Liver Powder, Menhaden Fish Oil, Whole Dried Eggs (Human Grade), Whey Protein Concentrate (Human Grade) plus Minerals And Vitamins. Are you supposed to eat it as is or are you supposed to rehydrate it in water? :-k What does the feeding instructions on the bag say? The ingredients aren't great, IMO :? No dry food will help you lose weight. Dry foods are very high in calories. One cup may contain as much as 400+ calories :-O A 10 pound cat only needs about 200 calories per day. Have you seen the tips on how to safely lose weight?

    The directions dont say one way or the other. You could either feed it dry or wetten it a little bit. i haven't determined what consistency works best for him just yet. He ate it dry, but seemed to be a little too dry for him. they suggested i feed him 1/8 of a cup, twice a day, along with his small half can of wet food.. So almost like a persons diet - 3 small meals a day. Phillipe is so food driven i think he'd eat me if it was down to just the two of us, lol, so he's been enjoying it. I just want to know if anybody else has had results with it. Like i said, the pet shop owner swore by it. And it wasn't like he was trying to upsell me.. there are other foods out there that are more pricey.

    I would add water to the food. Dry food, as you may have heard, just keeps a cat in a constant state of dehydration which can cause urinary and other health issues. The food doesn't need to be soup, just moist like canned food. I've never heard of this food before and I don't think I've seen it at pet stores here :?
