    Well, the mystery continues, but I took her back up to 1.25 and started a new pen, so we'll see how she looks when the depot is full.

    Had a long talk with the people at Darwins today about them losing my order....then we moved on to a discussion about their "Intelligent Design" vet prescribed food (which is much lower in Phosphorus than their usual food) and the questions of "why do they contain such stupid ingredients as beets, zucchini, celery, parsley, dandelion root, turmeric, tomato pomace and cranberry powder"?? They didn't have such an "intelligent" answer :(:mad:

    My oldest DS says he's going to run up to KC tonight or tomorrow and pick up the last of the RadCat that I bought over the phone when I heard there wasn't going to be anymore. I don't remember exactly how much it was, but I think it was 6 tubs....but don't remember the sizes. I think it was a mix of medium and small tubs. If he does, I'll wait until I go up to Columbia for pain clinic next week to pick up the Nature's Variety Signature medallions and the Darwins should be here by then too so I will have some time to transition China from the RadCat to the other foods and see how she does. (and IF she'll eat them)

    Yo China!! You see how much trouble your mama's going through for you?? How about you do your part and bring those numbers back down to all green?? That's not asking much!!

    When you get the FoodFurLife premix, I would still give it a try. Neko (and civies) loved it. Before using it, I used the TC Feline premix, the Special low phosphorus version. Not sure if the Special version is available in the US. Another premix that is CKD friendly is Alnutrin with calcium. They give free samples. And were started by a member of FDMB.:) Home made done with premix has no fruits and veggies in it. The "intelligent" design is probably lower in protein, because of the additives. :rolleyes:

    Good luck getting enough Radcat to tide you over.

    I thought that too but the "regular" is listed as 16% and the "intelligent" as 15% protein so they're close

    Well, there are always hotdogs :cat: :p

    Good luck in getting a good substitute for the RadCat, Chris.

    I saw some canned bug meat cat food the other day in the pet food store. Wish I remembered the brand.

    I've heard of cricket flour based dog treats but bug meat cat food?

    You'll have to look into it the next time you go! I understand bugs are very high in protein so I guess it could make sense

    Is it next to the powdered crickets?

    Would you recommend the Alnutrin with Calcium or the Alnutrin with Egg Shell calcium?

    The main problem with the Alnutrin is it requires chicken livers....something not very many places nearby carry (although I think I can get them at HyVee on the other side of the lake)

    I would email them and ask for the phosphorus numbers on the two products. I have never used them. I preferred the FoodFurLife produce because only meat, water, premix needed. TCFeline just required adding an egg and water.

    China's numbers are looking good. I hope the food issue resolves - yup, we'll do anything for them.
