What is "green" tripe? I can't find where on their website they list the ingredients for each product. Did I miss it somewhere??

Their website is very dog oriented. That always annoys the heck out of me.

I got some samples from them. The food sample was sent in a baggie with a handwritten label "Cat Food Sample, Venison & Fish Recipe." I'm very reluctant to feed them food sent in a baggie. A note in the packages states that "This is the only real meat diet on the market that is a shelf life stable alternative to raw." Supposed it's sourced from antibiotic-free, hormone-free, grass fed, range raised venison and lamb from New Zealand, and all other other ingredients come from New Zeland as well. It smells very strong (not pleasant to me, but I'm not a cat).

They also sent me a full size bag of "Good Cat" treats. Hand written on the front is a note that cat & dog treats are the same. The ingredients in the treats are:

Lamb
Chicory Syrup
Hoki Fish Oil
Lecithin
pherols
parlsey

I broke one treat in half and offered a piece to each of my cats. Swanie snarfed his down, Cindy got up and moved away from hers. Swanie then snarfed Cindy's half too.

yes tripe is made from the stomach. Here is some info:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tripe

Green tripe is unwashed tripe and its unsuitable for human compumsation but can be used in pet food.

We got some kitty treats at a show (curtesy of the cat club). Was freeze dried fish flakes (swear its just normal flaked fish food). But Charlie loves them - Ling will walk away from them.

But both will eat the talepia fish we cook for ourselves Go figure

The price sounds outrageous, but I've been buying this food for several months, and the feeding instructions are right on, i.e., one 185 g./6.5 ounce can will feed a 4 kg c. 9 lb. cat for two days. It's very rich and filling.

Glad you like it! I used to offer this food, but it was expensive with the shipping and I didn't have a lot of interest. My cats like the treats but the food..not so much

I don't know about the cat community, but I know many people in the dog-world that feed raw green tripe to their dogs, and the dogs go crazy over it. I could never find it raw around here that wasn't cleaned and bleached and so fed the 'Tripet' in the can. My dogs really liked that as well. Never thought to offer it to the cats. I have one cat that is a raw fanatic. Especially beefheart. He mauls me when I'm cutting it up for the dogs.

I think its really cool, but after hearing about cats being fed to cats. I'd be wary too, I was thinking about doing a Orijen/Ziwi dry mix and feding wet Innova EVO with Raw Natures varity chicken and turkey every so often.

Hmmm, I wonder if this would work for my crew. Of course, I'm not sure the feeding guidelines will work with Khan, if he'll eat it.. he really only likes fresh made raw, but the others might try it. Khan, of course, eats twice as much raw as he's supposed to. If they'd eat it as a supplement to what I'm giving them, though, that would be awesome.

I can't, though, afford to feed them that all the time if Khan still eats his normal amount (he's currently eating right around a pound of raw a day).

I'm thinking this might be a good supplement (if they'll deign to eat it), though, to their normal diet.

I don't think it's as well known in the cat world, but for a freeze-dried raw green tripe there is a dog and a cat version made by Dr.Harvey's...comes in a resealable pouch.

I swear i have seen it, name rings a bell LOL

certainly sounds decent but i have pretty much given up trying new foods with my group

they seem quite happy with what their on, so if it ain't broke, why fix it?
