Wild Kitty Cat Food

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Has anyone heard of this and what do you think of their information on their site. I thought it might be neat to get raw food locally but it seems their stuff is fishy.

My question is .. is the fish raw ?>?? if so NO NO ... if it is cooked then the food isnt truely raw ... Someone correct me if this is wrong... they have some wheat NO NO for raw I know it is germ but

that is the last recall.. for salmonella I am sure that problem is solved

In the Chicken and Clam recipe posted on their site, I was wondering at first why apples were so high on the ingredient list, and then I realized the list appears to be in alphabetical order.

Anyway, I would like to hear people's experiences with this food, as well.

I've looked at this food a few times out of curiosity, and to be honest it's never really struck my fancy. I guess I just haven't been terribly impressed by anything about it.

I had never heard of the brand until I was on the AVMA website the other day and read that they were recalling all product due to possible Salmonella contamination.

Yeah, but are you going to feed your cats any of the recalled Menu foods 6-8 weeks after the recall? They issued a nationwide recall February 16. I would like to have seen that recall addressed on their website (maybe it's there nad I missed it.) It's just that when companies don't say anything about stuff like that - even if they are in the clear - it makes me leary of them

Raw food is usually regional so yes i would feed it so soon after if they could answer my questions... since it was salmonella that can be tested for and the tainted product all gathered... They did say something early on ...

As for the current recall I beleive it will be expanded to many more companies if the FDA and MENU are seeing what my vet is seeing ... For now NO canned will be served ... I actually took back non Menu cans and threw a few others out ...

I use Wild Kitty not currently because of the recall...They were open about the recall..It only effected the turkey formula(but they ended up pulling all of them-to be on the safe side)...their are different formulas..My kitties tend to love fish and the only two brands I can find that have fish are Wild Kitty and Primal...luckily both their favs!!

the salmonella stuff is on their site i saw it.

Sharky. . . .i asked your question and they emailed - 'what is it you would like to know' i guess the first question wasn't explicit enough. .. . . .

Yup, I posted it here, plus their response. My understanding is they have not been able to duplicate/find salmonella when they did their testing.

In genural after reading the ingredents and hearing about their somanillia I would advoid it, it doesnt seem to be a very good brand of raw.

I am sure there will be an answer re the fish they use, but fwiw, this is a **respected** company, and the bit about salmonella is something that if you eat chicken, you'd best be worried about as well. The company uses the same source/quality of chicken as we all eat, and salmonella is an issue in our chicken supply. I'd love to see the FDA address that issue with the chicken we eat instead of going after one small raw food company.

The following is what Rick Nadeau said about his fish ingredients:

The fish is raw. We use all raw products and some small amounts of vegetable matter to get the right amount of vitamins and minerals.

Hmmm interesting. I wonder if Primal's 5% fish content is raw too. Anyone know? Don't mean to hijack...sorry.

I don't know the answer to that but i do know that I just want lots of information BEFORE I pass any judgement. Many companies can be affected by recalls that don't necessarily mean bad handling or negligence. I respectfully with hold my opinions about this company until i get a bit more info.

I thought raw fish was a no no - sharky, care to chime in?
post #24 of 25
well NO RAW fish is allowed according to my vet .... whom was nice enough to ask about that to the holistic vet since she couldnt remember why no raw fish ... it is a bacterial and parasitic issue.... I WOULDNT serve a food with RAW fish
