Supplies are running low on Curie’s current brand of (canned) cat food, and it’s time to begin research on whether I’d like to continue feeding her what she is on right now, or if there’s a better alternative out there. This means literally spending an hour or so comparing different brands, long (and often scary) lists of ingredients, guaranteed analyses, and prices per weight; on top of ensuring that it’s something she wouldn’t turn up her nose at. Curie LOVES salmon, whitefish, and tuna (it’s advised not to have solely a seafood diet however because of mercury concentrations and bio-accumulation) but doesn’t care much for grilled chicken. And I’ll also admit that I try to find foods that I would personally feel comfortable handling (some of the stuff stinks! and oozes with gooey fat!)
When it comes to making sure Curie is well and healthy, has the silkiest and softest coat ever, and bundles of energy and love… the time and money is worth it.
