Is Your Cat Getting More and More Chubby?

This is Raja, our overweight cat!

Raja started out a reasonably svelte 12 lbs when we got her from a local shelter at age 7. Then, barely 2 years later, she was up to a hefty 15 lbs!

Diet cat foods were no help. Then, I happened to read a book: "Your Cat, Simple New Secrets To A Longer, Stronger Life" and it changed everything.

We invite you to follow our quest for a healthy weight-loss plan for this funny, personable and very talkative cat.

Hopefully, together we can help all our cats live healthier and thinner lives!

Nature’s Variety Recalls Some Instinct Rabbit Meal Kibble!

*** Recall Alert ***

Nature's Variety Recalls Selected Bags Of
Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula Grain Free Kibble Diet For Cats

Nature's Variety has issued a voluntary recall of two date codes and two sizes of Nature's Variety Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula grain free kibble for cats.

Nature's Variety recently discovered that some bags of its Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula kibble for cats may contain small pieces of ground sorghum in the product.

While this presents no health risk to the cats being fed this product, the company says that this formulation is not consistent with Instinct's grain free standards or Nature's Variety's insistence upon meeting the highest standards of integrity for all products.

According to Nature's Variety, very little of this kibble has made it to the market, and there is no health risk to people or pets. However, any consumer who has the affected product should stop feeding it to their cat, and return it to their retailer for a refund.

The two lot codes of Nature's Variety Instinct Rabbit Meal Formula grain free kibble diet for cats affected by the recall are:
  • UPC# 7 69949-60385 6– 5.5 lb. best if used by 09/28/11
  • UPC# 7 69949-60381 8– 12.1 lb. best if used by 09/29/11
