We’ve just got an alert that the PetSmart brand of canned cat food, SophistaCat, has caused some serious problems for some cats. A product incident report has been filed but there is no product recall in effect yet. If you use SophistaCat brand, please watch your cats for lethargy and low appetite, and if they have any symptoms, bring them in to get their kidney function checked. Scary!
Incidentally, dear reader, I hope you’re buying food for your animal friends from a locally-owned and -operated business, to support your local economy. Also, ideally, we animal lovers should buy from establishments that don’t sell live animals, which supports the exploitative breeding industry. If you’re in the Ithaca area, Ithaca Grain & Pet Supply is a great choice.
