For A More Economical Brand Of Canned Food


I’d just go by what Dr Susanna has recommended when it comes to kibble-diet (Go!) and canned food since she has done extensive research on the ingredients used in most of the brands available on our Klang Valley market.

Her choice of quality canned foods:

1. Go!, Natural Balance, Addiction (above RM5)

2. Qiut (only fish) – more as a treat (RM3.90)

Option (2) would be for those who need slightly more economical food for their cats.

I’ve tried Go!, but my brood doesn’t like it. They seem to love Natural Balance but I’m having trouble getting supplies as it’s sold out in most places.

I bought Addiction today, and half of my brood ate it, but it has jelly.

What’s wrong with the jelly? Apparently, it’s toxic. It is something close to fabric softener and is banned for humans. Animals don’t live that long, so they figured it can be used for animal food.

I thought I should try Qiut before I write about it, so I did. Qiut is avaiable even in supermarkets since it’s not an expensive brand.

†There are many seafood flavours, but I bought these two to try.

†Bunny and Tiger stamped their approval…with GUSTO!


These are to be used as treats as it’s only fish.

Fish is not a complete protein for cats. Of course cats can eat it, but more as a treat, and not on the long term. Think about it, cats hate water, so how can fish be their natural food? Chicken, bird, or even rabbit or possum might be a more natural choice of food for them. So, for home-cooked, think BIRD – the cat would eat up the whole bird except for its feathers. So, our home-cooked food should be about 95% protein and 5% digested (pre-cooked) veggies.

Updates on 1.1.12, 5.30am – everyone ate Quit except….little Tabs! She took one sniff and walked away!! Maybe she is saying, “Huh? Fish?? Me doesn’t like fish. Me is descended from the leopard. Fish is not Tabs’ food.”
