Cat parents, now is the time!
Perhaps you've made incremental improvements in your cat's diet. Stopped free-feeding dry food. Transitioned her to canned, a little at a time. Began rotating in different flavors and protein sources for variety.
Things are going well. She's glossed up and slimmed down, can now reach around to her butt for cleaning, lost the dandruff problem, and the litter box is smelling better. But wait…there's more.
You could go all the way to RAW. The ultimate carnivore high-meat high-moisture diet that puts an end to obesity, urinary problems, dental decay, arthritis and digestive disorders. One more transition, with a pretty big pay-off. Your cat will be sleeker, more muscled and lean, ageless, practically immortal, with clear eyes and infinite non-jittery energy. No more litter box smell and very little to scoop out. She'll be able to leap tall buildings with a single bound…
TIP: Start out with a raw cat food that has NO vegetables (they don't really need or like them), like Rad Cat, Vital Essentials or Natural Pet Pantry. Be prepared to spend at least two weeks overcoming your cat's previous food imprinting. They are creatures of habit, after all.
SECOND TIP: No free-feeding!! Pick up leftover food at night, wash bowl to remove the food smell and wait until your cat is hungry the next morning to offer some raw. (Cats are gorge and fast eaters – they do best on a morning/evening schedule.) Then, put down a tiny spoonful of thawed raw food either by itself or mixed with regular food. Occasionally a cat will want to lick it off your finger. But I digress. Best bet is to mix with a favorite canned food. If accepted, slowly increase amount of raw at each meal. If acceptance is not forthcoming, we have a whole bag of techniques and inducements.
Latest Tricks and Bribes
Holistic Food for Your Unique Animal
It’s not easy being innovative in the pet food world, but Great Life manages to pull it off. It’s founder, Dr. Elliot Harvey, herbalist and author of “The Healthy Holistic Dog”, understands how different ingredients affect body chemistry and how certain whole foods, herbs, seeds, and oils can improve general health and ward off conditions like allergies, diabetes and arthritis.
Single Protein, No Potatoes
Grain-free Great Life dry foods have a single protein source (buffalo, salmon or chicken) to manage allergies and food sensitivities, and a unique combination of low-glycemic carbs -- jicama, yams and tapioca – to prevent the onset of diabetes. Sprouted chia seeds, abundant source of Omega 3's help skin and coat, immune function and calms inflammation. But the most innovative ingredient is Great Life’s Nutri-Coat freeze-dried raw food blend* that includes active enzymes, probiotics and wild salmon oil that coats and saturates each kibble.

Incredible Odor Control from Walnut, Macadamia and Pistachio Shells
We are very picky about committing to a new cat litter -- it needs to have great odor control, be good for the planet, kind to the wallet, and offer something unique or different.
We have found an original one—Purr & Simple. It comes in both a clumping and a pellet form. Both are dust-free, non-tracking, flushable and safe for septic systems. But what really stands out is how it neutralizes ammonia odors, as evidenced by the complete absence of a urine smell when we pass by the litter box.
Environmental benefits - it's made from the shells of U.S. grown nuts, and renews itself yearly when a new crop is harvested. Purr & Simple doesn't take food out of the global food supply, and it’s priced below any of our corn or wheat litters. This litter is part of our Healthy Rewards program.
