this is the third time it’s happened. time to start sending emails and stuff.
my cat sammy is 16 this month. she’s been treated for diabetes for the last three years. the first year was a real battle, because she couldn’t tolerate human insulin, not even the 1/2 to 1 unit i was giving her (do you know how hard it is to measure that small an amout in an insulin syringe?) they don’t make feline insulin anymore. why not? there are still felines that need it. well after much trial and different cat foods and settling in with glipizide 5mg twice a day with kitten food as the best choice for glucose intolerant cats, going from 8lbs to 15lbs (from whence the problem occurred) to 4lbs to a steady 5.8 lbs…..i finally have a food she can digest easily and maintain on well. a kitten formula chicken and liver canned. high protein and fat, low carbs. yummy.
the problem is, this is the third time they have mislabled their cat food. they other variety of kitten food they have is chiken and lamb, which is too rich for sammy and makes her sick. this results in spewing from both ends. not pretty. not fun for sammy. i know this is the case, becasue i tried her on the lamb version to see if she liked it. well, she likes anything to eat. but the lamb never agreed with her, and smells distinctive from the chiken and liver, and looks distinctive as well. less like the pate-ish liver, more like juicey meat loaf.
i will have to take the cans that i JUST BOUGHT and return them and exchange them for hopefully the right ones. this is aggrivating. i have to trust this cat food maker to lable their products right. it makes a difference. a big difference. sammy can’t afford to just puke up her calories. i disrupts her blood sugar routine. it creates a mess in her cage, or where ever she is. i got home from work today and had to give her an impromptu bath.
she rewarded me with a wet tail in the face.
so, when i finish my chocolate bonbons i’ll have to email this company and explain to them why i think they should give more attention to which lables they are putting on which cans of food. for all i know it could be adult formula (more carbs) cat food in these cans.
