Goodlife Recipe - Sharky please help?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am trying to convince a friend that Goodlife Recipe is NOT a good food for her cats. I was wondering if Sharky could analyze the ingredients so I could pass that along to her. I've been trying to convert her for ages to something healthier. She doesn't have a lot of money to buy the real premium stuff, and she will only buy Purina. Is there another Purina kind that would be better than this garbage? Thank you so much for the help!

To guarantee that you get a response from Sharky, it would be better to PM her the question directly.

If you're looking for input from others as well, it is best to not direct the question right at Sharky as others may skip your thread.

Sorry. I didn't PM because I'm not in a huge hurry. Input from anybody would be welcome, I just put Sharky on there so maybe she would look at it when she got a chance.

If I broke a rule or something, I apologize.

With the GoodLife, you get all sorts of colors or poo. And it stinks.

The biggest thing is the sheer amount of grains, at the shelter, when feeding GoodLife vs. Purina, there was more poops on GL(not that Purina is good, but GL is that bad!)

Purina Naturals isn't half bad, if you can talk her into it, Wal Mart's Maxximum is even better.

Maxximum is a knock off of purina one's formula. Depending on plant though, maxximum does get fresh non frozen meat (here they buy human grade meat from a local meat packing plant - Bar S), except for lamb since it seems to be harder to get.

Yes, but Purina One has byproducts and Maxximum does not.
