Wellness TruFood

I was given the opportunity a few weeks ago to let my kitties try Wellness TruFood. I was sent (free of charge) a full-sized "sample" (2lb bag) of the Chicken, Chickpeas & Chicken Liver Recipe and my cats really like it. It is unique in that it has these little "superfood nuggets." The red ones (no artificial colors) are butternut squash and sweet potato based, and the yellow ones (again, no artificial colors) consist of mangos, nectarines, and orange peppers. It also is less processed than many pet foods today and is made in small batches. While it is not the main food for my cats, it will remain in the rotation for my cats. I am very happy to have been given the chance to try this food for my kitties!

Pet food news...

I must say that I am saddened to hear these two news stories today because these were both fairly good pet food brands. Innova is being discontinued (EVO is NOT from what I have heard but Innova is). Also released today was the news that Merrick was bought up by Nestle Purina. This last bit of news is very concerning because, while not announced yet, Purina will very likely change ingredients to increase profit margins and Merrick has been a really good food up until now. One also has to wonder why Purina is buying a good food company when they have said time and time again that by-products are healthy, nutritious ingredients and that corn is a good ingredient (of course, this also doesn't make sense when they already have their Beyond brand, which is corn and by-product free). The only answer, of course, is that they are in it for the money and really don't care (and will say anything to make money).
