Question

LIFE SOURCE BITS

Has anyone experienced their cat not eating / liking the Life Source Bits? My cats eat the regular kibble and leave the Life Source Bits behind. I'm just wondering if anyone else notices their cats doing this.

I would say to try adding a bit of warm water to the food. They claim this will help release the flavors and aromas. It may help your cats not pick around it so much. As for the review below that "hasn't heard good things and will never use Blue again", Blue Buffalo is a great product that works for many, many cats and their owners, its a healthy food and uses quality ingredients. It sounds to me like that particular person has some picky cats if they will only eat one variety of Merricks. My cats have really enjoyed the switch to Blue and also seem to enjoy the both the dry options and the wet (I use the Healthy Gourmet varieties of wet, and the Indoor Health Chicken & Brown Rice Dry w/ Life Source).

I have 5 cats and they will eat nothing but Blue. They do pick around the bits, but eventually it all gets eaten up.

Hi, I actually tried this bag out myself and my cats too do not like the Life Source Bits (even the STRAY I adopted hates it LOL, she just eats around it). It actually caused an allergic reaction to one of my kittys. She vomited and had diarrhea within a few days of switching to this brand and cried often (as if to tell me she was suffering!!!). I will never go back to this brand (something about the ingredients, not many cats are fond of from the reviews I have researched). If you're interested in a grain-free diet, I would recommend Merrick Before Grain in SALMON. I have tried the other flavors such as Tuna and Chicken, they throw it right back up! But Salmon they love, it's quite affordable, cute packaging and most importantly, my cats LOVE it! I've passed this on to all my cat parent friends. Good luck! =)

Personally my 4 cats do wonderful on this food. They are healthy and look wonderful. I recently took my kitty in to have some tests done and the dr. told me her blood work was incrediable. To me that would fit the "completely balanced"/"nutrionally complete" status.

They have 15 lb. bags at the stores. Last time I bought them (I have 5 cats to I buy the big bags) I think they were around $33 each. I'm seeing online that they are about $35 and free shipping. In store I could use coupons though if I had them.

For me it is cheaper to purchase on-line as I live about an hours drive from the nearest Petco. I also purchase two bags at a time to save the shipping charges.

Although I am not sure of the exact breakdown of protein/carbs, I know that most Blue Buffalo dry foods have a higher percentage of proteins and less carbs than most BIG NAME, CHEAP NATIONAL BRANDS. They also have far less fillers and meals (ground up proteins that may include yucky parts of animals that they are required to report) than the cheapies. I feel very confident giving my 2 boys almost any Blue Buffalo dry food. I know that the wilderness formats are higher in proteins and fats that some of their other dry options. I feed one feeding dry (morning) and one feeding wet (night) using only Blue Buffalo products and I have seem a positive change in my kitties.

We switched to blue buffalo duck for our diabetic cat. Six years later we dropped the protein level by switching to the chicken mixes. He is still with us. I understand about expensive, but IMHO the healthiest (best) brands keep the vet bills down.They eat less and get the nutrition they need without grains and fillers. Most grains are bad for diabetic cats.

I don't know of anything you can feed a cat to prevent or even reduce shedding. The closest you'd find would be food that helps prevent hairballs. While you can't prevent shedding, you can minimize the flying fur by brushing your cat every day or every other day. Also, a high quality cat food would keep your cat's coat healthy. Cats are carnivores, so they should be eating grain-free food, preferably canned because the additional moisture in the food helps to keep their kidneys healthy. Wellness is a good brand of cat food.

Try the Wellness brand. Look for labels that are clearly marked "GRAIN FREE" on other brands.
