Bad Cat Food

Hills, the maker of Science Diet has recalled one of its DRY cat food brands. Likewise, Purina recalled some Alpo brand dog food - with certain date codes.

Well I decided to read the ingredients of the two brands of cat food currently in use here. Purina "One" food for fat orange cats, and Eukanuba kitten food for little furry cats.

Eukanuba dry foods contain NO wheat gluten. At all. In fact, the dry foods are not even made by Menu Foods. So I concluded that Cleo's kitten food is in fact safe.

The Purina One food for fat orange adult cats who like to bite if you do the slightest thing to upset them (FRED!) lists "wheat gluten" as an ingredient. Now to be fair the Purina web site says that its dry foods are safe. And Purina is a good company that has been making animal food for a very long time. They make food for pets, farm animals, and even zoo animals. I have seen Purina cat chow, dog chow. CATFISH chow, monkey chow, and so on. Everything.

in other words, Purina is a company that has a lot to loose by risking its brand name. The company says that its dry foods are safe, and that only the "wet" Alpo with specific date and plant codes are now part of the massive recall. So I tend to believe them.

However, I concluded to stop using Purina "One" dry cat food. I will go back to the store and buy some Eukanuba dry food for fat adult cats. Fred is on a diet, and the other two adult cats are as well - even if they are not fat. Gigi the calico cat is not at all fat. Sake the long haired siamese looking cat is not skinny, but not fat. She is actually at the top end of what her weight range should be. Fred is the fat ass of the bunch. I will use Eukanuba until this "wheat gluten" thing blows over.

In other news, the flea market was OK. I looked at a bunch of junk. Some of it was good junk, some was just the garden variety junk. I did pick up a few little things. Like a new tackle box for lures. Now I have two tackle boxes! One for hooks and leader wire and swivels and sleeves and weights and sabiki rigs and shit. The other is for lures, plugs, spoons, and other assorted artificial baits. Slick.

I also got this "magic cloth" stuff. It is some sort of super "micro fiber" with magical properties that trap dirt without using any cleaning type chemicals. The gut doing the demo of the stuff scribbled on glass using a crayon, and then using just the magic cloth dampened with water cleaned it off. Just like that. So I bought two pieces of this magic cloth for $10.

And what do you know, it works! The glass sliding doors are filthy. Terrible. Horrible. But just like the guy said, one cloth with some ordinary water cleaned it up. No Windex or anything. And it worked on the truck windshield too. The inside of the windshield was in need of a cleaning. Not anymore however. The magic cloth is pretty cool.

Hi sweetie! I was wondering if Bush had a different Bill of Rights, and it turns out that I'm correct! Thanks for this intrepid piece of reporting.

You know, this pet food scandal is really scaring me. I'm wondering if I need to go to the extreme of making my own...

Saur - The most powerful crayon on Earth is in the President's desk. If I were you I would read the ingredient label on the pet food you buy. I now only buy 100% wheat gluten free pet foods.

being a good cat owner such as yourself, I think you should make their food at home, with only the best of organic ingredients. Please google a recipe for cat food and begin this procedure post haste.....

over and out

RAbbit, rabbit!
I LOVE the Bush countdown, and I think I need a magic cloth.
We watched Pursuit of HappYness last night--that was one of your netfliks,yes? I thought it was frustrating and stressful to watch, but knew it'd end happily.

Maybe Fred could teach Serena how to chowdown. She's making me look like a bad parent--she'd rather sleep than eat.

The Lazy,

This pet food brouhaha has me thinking why haven't any down and out humans died. The economy must be pretty good since the homeless aren't eating pet food.

I had a magic cloth but it disappeared.

Blogger Daisy said...

Love the Bush countdown. Anyway to speed that gizmo up?!?

I am very upset about the whole pet food fiasco, especially to find out about Hills prescription food. So far my Hills X/D is safe.

Blogger The Lazy Iguana said...

Beanie - I thought I was going to have to cook for the cats. Get some boneless chicken breast and rice, cook it, then put it in the blender and mushify it. but I found wheat gluten free cat food, so all is good. The commercial cat food has all the nutrients a cat needs to get fat and lazy.

Actionbell - EVERYONE needs a magic cloth. The thing rules. Pursuit Of Happyness was a OK movie. Positive and upbeat. It seems that the majority of the films I get from Netflix are dark. Fred's fat problem comes from his chow down nature. Cleo and Gigi like to nibble. Sake eats what she needs then goes away. Fred eats everything he sees. So the nibblers demand food constantly - but only in small amounts. Give them too much and Fred eats the leftovers. It is very much a pain in the ass.


Caiman - good point! As far as we know human food is not effected. OR IS IT!??!?! Conspiracy theory anyone?

Daisy - who knows if the clock will speed up. It all depends on what the oversight hearings can dig up. I decided to take my cats off any dry food that contains wheat gluten. Iams and Eukanuba do not use wheat gluten. So for now (and possibly a very very long time) I will just use Iams.

Blogger Normy said...

That pet food recall is nuts. I had some Iams in pouches that my dog gets sometimes, I ended up just throwing it away. (Not before considering feeding it to that biting neighbor dog.)

Ok... where do I find one of those magic cloths. If they're anything like magic erasors they must be alright... anything that makes cleaning more fun is a great thing to have.

Blogger Cheesemeister said...

Wow, another crazy cat person! Cool!
I haven't fed science diet to my cat in years. They stick their noses in the air at it then come find me and meow pitifully. They actually like the Purina indoor formula the best.
My cats are in order of age P.E., who is 15 and is starting to have kidney problems :-(
Then Isis, who is six and is the pushiest cat ever.
Leon and Raymond are littermates and are both five.
Trinity is probably about three years old. She was dumped by her owners who thought she was pregnant. It was a false pregnancy. Why have an animal as a pet if you're going to a) not get it fixed and then b) get angry with it for following its natural instincts? Some people need to be fixed so we can get their stupidness out of the gene pool!
