So I'm going


I found it highly interesting that Hills would invite me to come and visit their facilities.  With my basic personality being  very similar to a cat's the whole thought of traveling gets my fur up, but everyone said I should go... so I'm going.

I don't know a whole heck of a lot more then the fights at this point which is May 8th.

I know I have some pretty major questions, which again I'm sure they have someone with a bunch of letters after their name can totally justify away, but I can't wait to see what they have to say.

So, do you have any questions for Hills? and if you do, do you mind if I use your name/blog when I ask them?

  1. I'd like to know how they justify so many carbs in their cat food, given they are obligate carnivores, especially their "diet" formula.

  2. I agree with Katnip Lounge. Also, are they planning to introduce a grain-free canned line? (I know they have a grain-free dry now.)

  3. Yes, ditto Trish. I want to know the same thing: Does anyone know what the words "obligate carnivore" mean and, when a cat's natural diet is 3 to 5% carbs, how can they explain selling diets that contain 40 to 50% carbs? And does anyone know a cat's gut is short and not designed for all those grains?

    Bottom line is that it's about $$$$$$, and corn is filler, pure and simple.

  4. I make it unanimous! Explain the carbs! They use junky fillers!

  5. Good questions for them from the others. Mom Julie says she cringes at the junk that's in Hill's. Anyway, we're not happy about this since we lost two pets to cancer now and can only figure the food in general might have been a factor. (not Hill's)

    Thank you so much for your kind words when we lost Trapper, Connie. ((Hugs))
    Good luck on your visit!

  7. I cringe everytime I look at the ingredients on Hill's food. Is it any wonder that pets on Hill's normal range has to get on their prescription diet after a few years? It's sad when I look at the food sold by vets as the general public still tend to think that food sold by vets must be good. So NOT true.

  8. Can you say,"Corn Lobby"? The agricultural lobbies are powerful and pull in huge subsidies. We grow tons of corn in this country, propped up with tax dollars, which then enters the animal and human diet via corn syrup, corn fillers, corn starch, etc. Fewer dollars spent on high yield, big-agri grain crops could benefit all of us and the environment.

    Apart from that, why not try to suppress your natural Travel Grinch by embracing your inner Garden Gnome? You might have an excellent Polaroid adventure if you put that back down, deflated your tail, and unflattened your ears.

    [My name and blog are, I'm sure, virtually worthless; but if you can use them, feel free.]

  10. I am with everyone else: I am a kitty and I love and need MEAT! If my human gives me a can of food that has vegetables in it, I even eat around the peas and carrots. So yeah, what is with all the carbs?
