    Organic turkey breast meat - ingredients are turkey, water and 2% or less of salt. It’s the cleanest thing I could find.

    It's healthy, so like humans, they want junk food until they get used to it :D After awhile, they'll turn up their noses at junk food :joyful:

    Yes, I have tried Purebites. My cats didn't like them. Thanks for the info on Ziwi.

    So . . . funny how things change in a week. :p

    Three of my four cats have now decided that organic turkey breast is pretty much the best treat EVER! And the 4th cat likes it ok too. :D

    The ingredients list on the organic turkey I've been giving as treats has changed. :(

    It now says - turkey breast, water, contains less than 2% of the following: sea salt, potato starch, salt, chicken broth, rosemary extract.

    Is this still ok? Are these other ingredients at less than 2% safe?

    It's probably still fine…...testing will tell you the truth though!

    If you give him some and his numbers go up without any other good reason, suspect the turkey

    Thank you. I will check that.
    I don't like that it has potato starch and rosemary extract even though it's such a small amount. But it's still the turkey with just about the least amount of added ingredients.

    Thanks.

    When I was researching cat food ingredients, everything I found on rosemary extract said it is okay. It acts as a natural preservative and can actually have some health benefits. It's rosemary essential oil that can be toxic. Now, potato starch, not so much. And why wasn't one kind of salt enough?!
