We live in a remote location and our five cats are all completely "indoor" cats. (There are rattlesnakes and coyotes outside.) We have always had a problem with cats "throwing up" a lot and we have simply accepted it as part of the price of having them around. When we talk to other pet owners, it's "Yes, our cats throw up too. Isn't it terrible?"
But things have been getting gradually worse. In fact, in the last year, we have paid hundred dollar bills to the vet to see if something else is wrong. Those trips to the vet have resulted in steroid pills and "prescription" cat food that makes Newman's Own look economical by comparison.
The turning point came when one of our neighbors sponsored a screening of the film, "Genetic Roulette" about GMO's in food. Quite frankly, the film didn't apply to us directly because it was "preaching to the choir". We actually don't buy much of Newman's Own other products because we don't buy processed foods in general. But part of the film is about the effects of GMO's on animals, including pets. We thought to ourselves, "Hmmmm ... Maybe."
I think we were like other pet owners. If the pets like it, it must be OK. But how many things taste good that really aren't good? We were applying reasoned thinking to our own food but not to our pets! I did some research about what pet foods are really made of. In most cases, you just can't find out. But a few brands, including Newman's Own, are willing to tell you what is in their pet food and do their best to exclude GMO ingredients. (You can tell who is being honest. The honest ones will tell you how hard it is to completely exclude GMO's.)
We decided to try Newman's Own.
I expected a gradual change, but that didn't happen. It was like going through a door into a different world. Before Newman's Own, we were used to at least one incident EVERY NIGHT. When we would return from a day away from the house, cleaning up the messes was a regular routine. But in the last month, there have been exactly two, very minor, incidents with just one cat. And that cat hasn't had a problem in the last two weeks. We can sleep all night long now!
Our senior cat, Smokey, has been showing new life. He has been climbing the cat tree, jumping up on the table, and playing "paw" with my wife again. After reading some reviews, we were initially concerned that our cats just wouldn't eat Newman's Own, but that hasn't been a problem. It took about a day for them to get used to the switch and now they go after it just like normal.
These are all "rescue" cats of random ancestry. There's nothing the same about them except that they all showed up on our doorstep one way or another. So you could consider them to be a "random" sampling of the cat world. If Newman's Own works for our cats, it will probably work for any cats.
My motivation for writing this is to reach out to other cat owners. We are good to our cats, but we weren't being good enough. There are at least some rules that apply to human food, but it appears that the world of pet food is complete anarchy with just two rules: (1) Will pets actually eat it. (2) Is it cheap and profitable to manufacture.
I have just one complaint about Newman's Own. The largest size is less than five pounds. They really need to start providing larger, more economical bags!
Update - three months later
The health of our cats is still as improved as one month after switching. The only upchucks they do now are clearly related to hairballs, not food. (And there have only been a few of those.) But we've noticed something else that is worth mentioning. They don't "gorge" themselves on this food like they did on the cheaper stuff we used to feed them. We have decided that the clever people who manufacture the other stuff have figured out that if they can formulate it in a way that induces the cats to stuff themselves (and then upchuck later on), they can sell more. That doesn't happen with this food.
And they DO eat it. My wife has gone to specific feeding times and they start milling around and making a lot of noise about a half hour before. When she opens the food containers, they're just as eager. They just eat a more moderate amount now.
We've gone to Amazon's subscription plan to save a little more now.
We're sticking with Newman's. Absolutely.
UPDATE, 5/18/15: Contains Dicalcium Phosphate (DCP), which is used primarily as a calcium supplement and tartar control agent. DCP is another additive used for improving texture in cat and dog food. It cannot absorb water and is virtually insoluble. It can cause calcification of soft tissue, and research has shown it leads to kidney stones as well.
I never ended up putting my kitty on insulin. I give her Newman's Own grain free wet food and dry food... her diabetic symptoms went away IMMEDIATELY after I switched her food and it has been almost a year now and she is still doing great for as old a kittty as she is :)
