Default Just read about what is really in cat food

I just read a book called "Food Pets Die For" and it is horrifying!!!
This woman did an extensive study about the ingredients which go into
cat and dog food. Almost all of the major brands include euthanized
cats and dogs in their formula, as well as all of the spoiled and
diseased parts of animals which are not fit for human consumption. In
some cases, the protein ingredients in cat food are actually heat
treated feathers and hair, and sometimes heat treated fecal matter.
There is even road kill in some cat food. Some brands, including Iams,
Eukanuba, and Science Diet, fund cruel animal experiments on cats and
dogs at universities. They give to good causes as well, but, wow...
Some of the pet food companies which have healthier ingredients are
Petguard, Natura, and some others (cant remember)

I've been buying Wellness brand canned food for Brio. It's the only brand
I've ever seen that says it contains human grade meats.

Think of the birds, mice, whatever cats will eat. Human grade? ;-)

You should be aware that the term "Human Grade" means absoutely
NOTHING under law. In fact it has been so misused by various companies
that the term is being considered for legislation to stop the misuse
of the term and the deception of consumers.

Companies used the term "organic" then the law stepped in and made
them actually be organic - now there are no companies using the term
organic- wonder why?

Then came "All Natural" and the law stepped in and made them actually
be "All Natural" what happened to all those hundreds of companies
claiming to be "All Natural" they moved on to...

"Holistic" and "Human Grade" - another meaningless term with
absolutely no teeth whatsoever. I could market used crankcase oil and
sewage and call it holistic and human grade it would mean nothing.
When "human grade" gets smacked by the law, these same companies will
move on to other terms that have no meaning at all but fool consumers
everyday. There ought to be a pool for the next meaningless term to be
created by a fanciful marketing department.
