Timberwolf Organics "Serengetti" cat food

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Has anybody tried this? I got a sample from my local petstore today.

Here's the info:

Chicken Meal, Fresh Chicken, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and rosemary extract). Low Ash Salmon Meal, Potatoes, Sardine/Mackerel/Anchovy/Tuna Oils (preserved with mixed tocopherols and rosemary extract) Eggs, Dried Chicken Liver, Dried Whole Milk, Dried Whey Extract, Kelp, Alfalfa Leaf, Casein, DL � Methionine, Potassium Chloride, Lecithin, Taurine, Lysine, Carnitine, Choline Chloride, Creatine, Probiotics: (Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product, Bifidobacterium Thermophilum Fermentation, Bifidobacterium Longum Fermentation Product, Enterbacter Faecium Fermentaion Product, Bacillus Subtillus Fermentation Product, Blueberries, Cranberries, Mixed Tocopherols (a source of vitamin E), Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Thiamine, Niacin, Vitamin A Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Iodine Proteinate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Biotin, Folic Acid, Pyridoxine (a source of vitamin B6), Cobalt Proteinate, Papain, Yucca Schidigera Extract.

Gauranteed analysis:
Protein: 38%
Fat: 18%
Fiber: 2.5%
Moisture: 9%
ASH: 5%
Kcal/kg: 3,980

I forgot to mention that the reason I'm asking is b/c my dog did not do well on the TO formulas, so I was wondering if it was different for cats

I know there are a few folk s on here that use it or it is in there rotation... I see several things I dont like in dry food or the vet has said avoid( she is a vet who know s alot about nutrition and holistic medicine)

I love the protein and fat levals ... The omegas are not balenced to correct levals 5 to 1 to 10 to 1 depending on the souce but anything in that range is generally accepted as good .. Phosphorus is higher than I accept ///

I just bought some Serengeti to add to my mix of HealthWise, Innova, Nature's Variety Raw Instinct and Evo. I guess I'm kind of hoping they will all balance each other out.

In addition I am feeding canned twice a day.

Serengeti is one of several dry formulas I feed, when I can get it. Jamie loves it, and hasn't had any problem with allergies (a major concern with him).

Thanks guys...I have another question (because he really seems to like it and I may buy a bag)....do you think it's OK enough for a young kitten? I still don't understand why it has such a high calcium/phosphorus but has such low ash, lol.

It's an "all-stages" food, so it should be fine. http://www.timberwolforganics.com/pr...i-9-4-bags.htm

Yes it would be kitten safe ... the high phos may actually be good during bone growth.. and the protein is great for a kitten ... Remember calcium and phos are only two of I think 10 common minerals

I live in Germany, and apparently several zoos here feed Serengeti as a supplement to raw meat to their "big cats", meaning lions, tigers, leopards, etc. There is quite a bit of worry here about BSE (mad cow disease) and avian flu, so supplementing with a dry food makes sense. One importer has an online shop, and will "break down" the huge bags supplied to zoos for domestic cat owners, so I order a couple of pounds of it whenever it's available. It really goes over with Jamie and the "half-cats" (who live at my neighbor's, but eat here.)

I thought this was going to be the greatest thing since whole grain white bread and as far as my kits are concerned I was totally wrong!

All I can say is, I tried it and they don't care for it so I have a bag of All Stages Natural Balance on order. Now that I have little ones in the house it occurred to me that feeding light foods wouldn't be a good idea, so I have to keep to all stages.

I did also order Eagle brand and some Pet Gold tuna for the MILs' cat tht refuses to eat anything wet but tuna. I hope whe will accept this instead of the 9Lives tuna she's had in the past.

Ya know, my kids were never allowed to be this picky when they were growing up.

Well it looks like I won't be feeding it because even my unpicky kitten won't eat it...oh well.
