pets4life prepared raw

My local Global is carrying pets4life raw now. Thinking of buying some on payday.

http://www.pets4life.com/index.php?p=research/faqs

Has anybody tried the feline food from pets4life? If so, any issues/concerns?

No kidding? Good thing I waited for you to waste your money before I rushed out to buy it. Expensive I suppose? Can it be returned if they do not like it? Worse case scenario is giving it to the feral cats....

Thanks for the update. You probably saved many of us a lot of grief..sorry you were the guinea pig.

Ya, there are a few ingredients in this product that I'm not so keen on, but particularly the grapefruit seed extract. Even if they're using a miniscule amount, that stuff has a very strong, NASTY flavour. I'm always surprised when I hear about cats that DO like it.

If my foster kittens won't eat it, I doubt the ferals will eat it, maybe the raccoons? My fosters were feral and don't mind cat food now, but before: no way, raw, raw, raw is what they wanted. If they were going to be kept by me, they would be on a raw diet, but they are going up for adoption so I need to prepare them for their future life.

I have two shihtzus and also tried the Pets 4 Life Chicken and they would not go near it! I tried several times.....and they would simply sniff and walk away.
I am not sure where you are but I am now using Paws and Claws and they love it! You may want to try that one!
