By now I’m sure all you know just how crazy I am about my pets. After all, they are the only children we have. My 2 male cats certainly rule our household. If they want attention, they get it. If they want food, well of course, they get that too. My husband and I adopted “the boys” as we call them, when they were just tiny little kittens. We had planned to come home with William *fluffy one* and instead came home with Jack too. 6 1/2 years later, they are both still kings of the roost. Roxy we’ve also had since kittenhood. Her story is a little different than Jack and William’s and you can read all about her HERE.
Being a vet tech, I am very in tune with all of my pet’s individual needs and health issues–and believe me, there are plenty of them to go around. The boys struggle with being overweight–so does mom–and bladder issues. When I was asked to try out the new Purina Beyond cat food, I was so excited. Not only is this food a high quality, but it addresses the individual needs of all 3 of my kitties.
I love that the first ingredient in the new Purina Beyond food is a protein–chicken, fish etc. It’s also corn, grain and soy free, which is great, especially for kitties. Cats aren’t made to digest grains, especially corn. They are TRUE carnivores and need meat!
The high amount of protein in the Purina Beyond food also helps keep my cats thin. Excess carbs, just like in people, can cause obesity in kitties, and obesity can lead to life long problems in these cats. There are also no artificial colors or flavors in this food. Unlike a lot of other big name foods that add all sorts of dyes to their food, Purina Beyond keeps it simple.
My husband and I try to eat a real food diet, so why shouldn’t our kitties?
I love H-E-B, and shop there weekly. It’s so nice that I can just grab a bag of cat food while I’m shopping for our food. No more separate trips to the pet stores to get a high quality food. And, it’s very reasonably priced! Most higher quality pet foods don’t come cheap, but Purina Beyond is very affordable.
So, do they like it? Of course! Even Jack, who is my more finicky eater, and generally turns his nose up at fished based foods, really enjoyed it.
Believe me, if he plays with his food by sticking his paw in it, that means it’s good by him.
