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.

    I haven't tried it. The pictures look like it's full of vegetables. Anyone else?

    We've tried the Turkey/Liver a few times and it was well liked and no tummy issues. Yes, quite a few veggies and lots of liquid gravy. Probably not the most economical food to feed. I just looked at their website and they have new flavors, one with beef, and two more with fish - haven't tried those.

    I've used the Freshpet Vital dog food before, which is grain free and 80% meat or more. I used it for my dog when her oncologist recommended not using raw food while she was on chemo. I was thinking of trying it with my cats but it looks like all their forumlas contain chicken which several of my cats are allergic to. I think I did try the Freshpet Selects once which is like little meatballs, for my cat who is not allergic.

    We use it once in a great while but it is liked. We received a coupon for free food when we emailed asking a question (although the question was never answered.)

    He likes the wet food that comes in the cups and it's one of the few wet foods he will eat. On the other hand, he wouldn't touch the soft kibble food at all. All of it has quite a few veggies.

    3/3 cats refused to eat the wet food AND the refrigerated kibble food. They looked at it and walked away.

    The Freshpet Vitals line says: "All recipes contain 80% or more animal protein and 10% fruits and vegetables".
