Top Food for dogs AND cats!

Since I have cats I wanted to find the BEST FOOD POSSIBLE for my 2 little buddies. I literay did a minumum of TEN hours in finding out the answer. 8) I have become a dog and cat food expert!! LOL!

Well the conclusion is.... the very BEST DOG & CAT FOOD IS: (drum roll) http://www.naturalbalanceinc.com/ Dick Van Pattens: Natural Balance

Who would have though Dick Van Patten has the best animal food??!!!
As a BONUS this is generally 10% LESS than Eukanuba (sp?) and others.

So, did I see results??!! YOU BET! My cats eye color changed to a deeper green and the fur became much softer and didnt shed as much.

And this will be more of a shocker..... if you want pet food that is EQUAL to Eukanuba but at about HALF the cost..... Wal-Marts own brand. I forgot the name..... I DONT think it actually says 'walmart brand' on the package. But the packaging is a silver foil bag with one solid color printing on it.


ALSO: the best resource for cats is at this link: http://www.sedgwickcounty.org/animalcontrol/cats.htm

And for the cat owners..... dont give your cat milk. It gives them upset stomachs AND gas. :(

But Domino DEMANDS her cream - and these days she's not even satisfied with 1/2 & 1/2 - she wants CREAM!

Doesn't seem to do her any harm and she only gets about an ounce a day.

Go figure!

If My Gandmother's cat will eat Garlic flavored roast beef, I sure do not know what cat food is best.
