Let me explain the title right away. About a year ago, our second cat, Rocky, started developing stomach problems. Well, that was in part caused from the severe gingivitis he was developing, causing him not to be able to chew the standard crunchy cat food. So, to help with both issues, my wife did some research, and made up special food for him. To be honest, it’s pretty damn tasty! It’s all healthy and sugar free ingredients.
We love it, and Rocky’s stomach issues are solved. (Unfortunately the gingivitis isn’t!)
Of course, when we eat it, we spice it up a bit with the usual salt and pepper, but Rocky prefers it bland. (Yes, he did tell me that!). Okay, I know, he has to have it without spices.
A note for anyone that might see this and relate this to their cat’s issues, you need to also add Taurine to this for the cat’s eye health. Something normally added in all cat foods.
So, check out the ingredients and you’ll see it really is tasty, healthy and a mighty fine chicken salad that goes well with crackers, as a sandwich, or even a condiment. Whatever fits your personal preferences and diet.
