Semi Moist Cat Food
 
I am in deseperate need of finding a semi-moist cat food. One that is in kibble form but moist.

I know tender vittles is no longer sold in the USA nor is 9 lives semi-moist. Can I buy it from another country? where? how?

I know people on here prefer wellness or something else but i have a unique situation and have to find semi-moist: NOT canned or pouched food!
I found KD online.

Anything else????

Thank you!

Can you explain your situation a little bit? Does your cat have medical issues? Is there a reason why he/she needs to be on semi-moist food as opposed to canned/pouched? Tender Vittles is a really poor-quality food....

meow February 13th, 2009 12:54 PM

I meant to say Supreme V I found on line,....not KD...but nothing else.

Looking for semi-moist. nothing else is an option right now. poor quality food is better than no food when your cat won't eat.

I guess I was thinking that we might be more helpful if we knew what the restrictions were based on...does your kitty have problems with his teeth/mouth?

Meow's cat, Simba, has had most of her teeth removed and is now on a feeding tube because of inappetance. Here is her original post: [url]http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=59566&highlight=teeth[/url]

oh geez, sorry, I didn't see the original post. Wow, what an ordeal you guys have been though!!!

meow February 13th, 2009 07:09 PM

I honestly have no idea. The only semi-moist product I can think of is Pounce treats or Hip Action cat treats. Would Simba go for Whiskas Cat Milk? You can find it at most grocery stores, comes in a little purple carton.

i can't see the actual pages. can you? i see the table of contents and the cover. it looks like the name of a couple companies to who make semi-moist food might be in here. help!:frustrated::fingerscr

meow February 14th, 2009 01:31 PM

machine to make semi-moist food
 
these people make a machine that makes semi-moist cat food
[url]http://www.darin.cn/[/url]

I emailed them to see if they can tell me who sells it. I am thinking if there is a machine that makes the food it has to be sold somewhere.

IS THERE ANYONE HERE FROM CANADA?? DO YOU HAVE SEMI-MOIST THERE?
can you call 1-800-268-5345 and see if they make semi-moist? this number does not work unless you are calling from inside Canada...so I can't call it b/c I am in the USA. thank you.

ancientgirl February 14th, 2009 02:00 PM

I don't know if this will work for you, but have a look at this product:

[URL="http://www.thehonestkitchen.com/products/prowl.shtml"]Prowl[/URL]

It's a dehydrated food that you hydrate with warm water. I just bought some because I want to start slowly making my cats home made food and this has all the nutrients, vitamins minerals they need to thrive. I was going to mix some of this in with the home-made. But if your kitty has had her teeth removed this may be at least an option.

Here, they have some locations in Canada that sell this. Maybe you can get s sample.

Sorry to hijack, but just want to mention that Prowl is not meant to be a vitamin mix for balancing a home made diet. It's supposed to be a stand-alone food and will become unbalanced if mixed with just meat. You can certainly supplement it with up to 15% fresh meat though. My other problem with Prowl is that it's pretty high in carbs. Nothing wrong with feeding it occasionally, I just wouldn't make it a main diet.

ancientgirl February 14th, 2009 02:21 PM

I can supplement with some meat now and then. Thanks for the clear up SCM. I thought it might be a good option for Simba.:shrug:

You add warm water and let it sit for 10 minutes.

They sell it at Global Pet supply. I saw there are a lot of places in Canada they sell it.

Butler Lean Treats
 
Simba loves the Lean Treats made by butler. i need to find a food of that consistancy

ancientgirl February 14th, 2009 02:49 PM

[QUOTE=meow;747601]thanks i wrote and asked for a sample:thumbs up worth a try![/QUOTE]

I hope it's an option for her. :fingerscr The reviews I read on one site had some people saying their cats liked it all soupy as well as mushy.

ancientgirl February 14th, 2009 02:53 PM

If you enter your zip code in the store locator section, maybe there is a place that sells it near you and you can get a sample from them sooner

meow February 14th, 2009 05:20 PM

thanks i didnt even see the pet locator. i thought it was sold in Canada only./ there is a store 5 miles away that sells it!:D i will try it. if simba doesn't like it i will give it to my friend who has 4 cats...she is getting all my canned food that simba won't eat,.

Good luck.

meow February 15th, 2009 05:23 PM

sunday
 
the whiskas milk was a hit. she didn't drink much but seemed to enjoy what she did drink. how long can that sit out in the bowl before you throw it out?

the prowl was not a hit...but at least we tried it

ancientgirl February 15th, 2009 06:07 PM

At least that's something. I wonder, can't you maybe put some kibble in with the milk and let it get mushy?

meow February 15th, 2009 06:33 PM

[QUOTE=ancientgirl;748034]At least that's something. I wonder, can't you maybe put some kibble in with the milk and let it get mushy?[/QUOTE]yes and then she refuses to eat it. i have soaked kibble in water and drained it. nope won't eat it. i am now taking bread and putting it in a ziplock baggie with the kibble to see if the bread will soften the kibble (like what you do with hard cookies). It's worth a shot.:wall:

I also took her kibble and chopped it with a food processor. she eats the equivalent of 4 pieces of kibble. not enough to say she is eating.

ancientgirl February 15th, 2009 06:40 PM

Hmm...there has to be something specially made for cats who have few teeth.

Good luck with the bread.

ancientgirl February 15th, 2009 06:44 PM

Have you tried the Wellness packs?

meow February 15th, 2009 11:00 PM

[QUOTE=ancientgirl;748056]Have you tried the Wellness packs?[/QUOTE]yup. she hates all canned and all pouched food.:shrug: I wish there was something for cats with few teeth....canned food I guess but my girl refuses to eat any of it. the brand, flavor, etc doesn't matter. she doesn't want it. I spent $45 on cat food today just to buy a variety and see if she would eat any of it. i have a feeling i will be giving most of it to my friend with 4 cats.:pawprint:
