Chico2 I agree fully that if something or somebody has kept a cat healthy for nineteen years you shouldn't mess with the program. No way no how.
I personally will not use IAMS and in no way condone any of their past actions - ever. I need to make that clear. Nor would I try and convince anyone who doesn't use IAMs to use it when there are so many better options.
My only point was that they do contribute to charities still and have stopped their cruel practices. What more can we hope for? Fight one battle at a time and realize that you can't always annihilate your enemy completly, sometimes you just have to win and I think we have. Japan and Germany are now friends of the Allied nations that destroyed them over sixty years ago. That's the way it works, it has to.
