Ok. I think I woke up with hives this morning; that is how anxious I am about all this. I thought I was fairly under control before this NB news.
First of all, as someone said upstream, we have to stay calm. The more stressed and confused we get, the stressed and confused our cats get.
The more food switches we make and watching/hovering over our cats we do, then they certainly will have reactions. Animals are truly empathic creatures.
It's good to be vigilant but speaking as someone who can feel panic setting in, I just want to do a group check!
Question: Has anyone found any actual statements by Natural Balance foods? I cant' find anything on their websites. I *DEMAND* their full disclosure and attention to this matter. Not only have countless people trusted their food over time, but countless have *switched* to NB after the recent recalls and after weeks of research.
One of the links provided had some wild back and forthing between posters who say NB has been lying all along. This totally confuses me?! Other posted that NB is just being responsible and careful in light of all the recalls and stepping up to the plate to voluntarily remove questionable batches, despite lack of documented tamperings.
I have ordered both NB and Chicken Soup for Cat Lover's and still have plenty of Purina One standard variety on hand. I can just imagine the confusion and frustration and worry in pet households
I posted earlier that I do believe a couple of my cats are going through a new digestion process and changeover can take a few days, but until there is a response to THIS latest news, I am on full guard.
