Our New Food


Today I want to talk about food. I love food and will eat anything Mom puts out. We free feed from dry kibbles and hardly ever get stinky goodness around here. I mean really, it's been ages, Mom. A shared bowl of tuna water now and then just isn't enough for a guy like me! Don't you think I, um...I mean, we would like a bowl of moist food?


You're big enough already. You don't need more food.


(sigh) Well, it was worth a try.

Anyway, we used to eat Iam's kibbles, but Mom thought it was making us throw up too much so we switched to Science Diet and have been eating that for a long time. Then one day when Mom & Dad were at PetSmart, some guy came up to them while they were in the cat food aisle ready to put our usual food in the cart, and gave them a sales pitch about this Nutro Max Cat stuff.

He said it would improve our furs, reduce hairballs and help with my bombs in the litterbox.


Before this, when Max dropped a bomb, he could clear a crowded room. Even strong men would gag as they ran for the nearest exit!


Mom, I'm talking about food. Why do you feel the need to tell the world about my litterbox problems?!

Anyway, Mom politely listened to the sales pitch and thought, "Yeah, right", but since Nutro was about the same price as Science Diet, she agreed to try it.

Well friends, I'm here to tell you, it worked! There are not nearly as many hairballs and vomit piles around as there used to be and my stink bombs...well, they're not so stinky any more. And...if that wasn't enough to make Mom happy, do you know the best thing of all? Mom found a $5.00 off coupon on line and now she's really happy!

Note to readers: I was not compensated in any way for this endorsement. I simply wanted to share information about a product that helped in our multi-cat household.

We use Science Diet for sensitive stomachs but Spunky Doodle still vomits a lot. I wonder if maybe we should try MaxCat.

We've been eating Blue Buffalo for a couple of months now, and we don't many problems like that. Glad that the MaxCat works for you--different foods work for different kitties!

We are still eating Science diet 'diet' food, We do know know why we are not loosing those extra pounds. WE only get a cup full between three of us! Maybe we should try this, too!

We like anything that has no grain and fewer preservatives. Oh and Max--was that food named after you?!

Binga and Boodie eat grain free canned food. Me? I eat anything I want... and I am very picky!

That is fantastic! We are grain free and stink-bombless too.

Well now you got the Woman thinking...I used to eat that and then she switched to SD diet a while back. And SOMEONE is horking a couple times a week. Hmmm.

That is great news! Hooray for good food!

I used to feed Sweet Praline the Nutro canned food. She ate Royal Canin and Iams dry food. I think the future furchilren are eating Royal Canin for Kittens right now.

I'm back blogging. I have a new blog set up for the future furchildren that will come to live with me in September. The name of the blog is Sweet Purrfections. Please feel free to come by and visit at

We think that good stinky goodness actally keeps weight DOWN! Ya should try Merrick Turducken, an Thansgiving Dinner, Spot's Stew Chicken, , an especially Soulistic Chicken. Espeacially the Soulistic. It has good gravy! Bet ya LOVE that one. Available at Petco. Mebbe other places too, just where WE can find it.

Max, we're so glad you found a food you like and doesn't make you have stink bombs. We eat grain free and Ernie eats venison and peas because of his allergies.
