NATURAL CHOICE(R) Cat Food Gives Finicky Felines the Ideal Nutrient Balance
Nutro Products Challenges Cat Owners to Switch to NATURAL CHOICE(R) Cat Food to See the Difference

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 2 -- Finicky cats may be a thing of the past - at least when it comes to food. Nutro Products, Inc. has just released a new formula, NATURAL CHOICE® cat food with Ideal Nutrient Balance (INB), to deliver the natural nutritional balance that cats intuitively seek from their diet.

Developed by Waltham, the World's Leading Authority On Pet Care And Nutrition®, Ideal Nutrient Balance is the perfect mix of protein, fat and carbohydrates along with essential vitamins and minerals to give cats balanced nutrition.

"Many people come to me concerned about their cat's health and diet because their cat is overweight or simply doesn't like his food. It is imperative that cats get the right balance of protein, fats and carbs from their diet in order to have the foundation for optimum health," said Director of Health and Nutrition for Nutro Products, Inc., Dr. Tiffany Bierer. "NATURAL CHOICE® cat food with INB provides this balance, which supports cats' healthy immune systems and strong bones along with other important benefits."

NUTRO® NATURAL CHOICE® cat food with INB is available at pet stores nationwide. The NATURAL CHOICE® brand includes Chicken Meal Formula Products in Kitten Original or Indoor, Adult Original or Indoor, Weight Management Original or Indoor, and Senior Original or Indoor. Oceanfish Flavored Products come in Adult Original or Indoor and Weight Management Original or Indoor.

Hey guys! I can't believe its already Howloween time again this year! Mom always dresses us up! This year I am an indian chief, my little brother is a cowboy, and mom is an indian! We entered the Howloween Pet Costume contest at Petco and won 1st place! Mom was super excited and really proud of us! You know how moms are! They can be soooooo embarrassing sometimes! But, I added some pictures that the radio station took of us to my page so you can see!

Mom was also really excited because I got picked for Diary of the day this week! She was bragging about us to all of her friends and it was all I could do to keep from blushing!

Making Improvement

So I am starting to feel SOOOOO much better again! I just hope it is for good this time! After I got the good pain meds in my system I started to feel much better. I am completely off pain medicine now and just on antibiotics. I do have to go back to the vet on Monday just to check my white blood cell count to make sure that everything is improving on track but, other than that I am great! I have a good appetite and Mom says I'm starting to get a little pep back into my step!
Also, Dr. Brocki called when she heard from the oncologist and it was good news. The spot that she was concerned with is where part of my bones were degenerating and good bone is forming to make a bridge under the unstable part! So that is super good news and Mom couldn't be more happy! She says she can't stand it when one of us pups or kats are sick!


I Really Don't Care For Vet Techs With Thermometers.

So, I went to the Vet and there was this new girl trying to get all friendly and I really just didn't have a good feeling about her. Don't get me wrong, I love humans. They know how to give some good pettings and love to leave food on coffee tables for us, but this girl I was not particularly feeling. The first indication is that she took my temperature...and not under my tongue (lucky humans) or from my ear! Ya, I was not pleased but I did tolerate this! Than she tries to hold my head while the doctor is messing with my hurt legs. Yes, I tried to control myself but, a dog can only take so much! I snapped. I just had to let them know that I am not going to be toyed around with while my legs hurt. Than they took all sorts of x-rays and aspirations and finally they let me go home. Mom keeps giving me all sorts of medicine now and said we have to go back next week, something about sending the x-rays to an oncologist whatever that means. All I know is after the medicine that mom gives me I feel much better and can walk around. I'll keep you posted!


It hurts...

Well, Mom is all up and about and in a huge fuss. She is babying me and freaking out to say the least. My leg is hurting really bad to the point that I can't get around. Mom has a vet appointment scheduled for 3 p.m. today. She is super worried and I can tell even though she is trying her best to act strong, but I know her so well I can tell. It all started when Saturday I started limping. Mom was concerned but, not overly worried because lets be honest here-I'm not the youngest dog on the block. I have had my fair share of hip and joint issues and every winter I seem to start limping. Mom didn't think much of it until last night when I could barely get around and started whining and whimpering because I couldn't get up to go outside and go potty. She really knew something was not right when I didn't get up to greet her at the door...thats when she started crying. I hate it when my human cries. It makes me sad. I don't mean to make her cry but, I can't help it my leg hurts real bad. There is this big lump on my hind leg and it trembles and I flinch every time Mom touches it. She of course got on the internet which is never the smart thing for worried Moms to do. She is praying for the best and keeps assuring me that Dr. Brocki is going to make me all better. I sure hope so because I don't want to be stuck laying down all the time-I like to meet my human at the door. I also think that Mom is more worried than me. Well Mom keeps asking everybody to pray for me so I guess I'll ask you guys to do the same and I'll come back and post after the doctor visit!
