I am so amazed at what FELIDAE food was able to accomplish
10/22/2010 – This is MO, short for Michael Oher from the movie Blind Side about a family who took in a kid who really didn’t have anybody, but had great survival instincts and went on to be a great defensive tackle in the NFL. Well, our little MO was roughly 2-3 weeks old when my son figured we could rescue him. My wife has always wanted a cat, so there was no talking her out of this one! He is from a feral cat and we assume the mother died (coyote) shortly after giving birth.
The old man whose house they were at was only feeding them large kibble dog food. The two other kittens died, and MO was quickly on his way. MO had the sense to take the large kibble dog food and put it in water to soften it, and that’s what he was eating, with barely any teeth! MO’s eyes were glazed over, he could barely stand, stomach was very bloated, and he was a mess. I didn’t think he would survive the night. We went to the local feed store, bought some of the powder formula for kittens, along with some samples of cat food. Among those samples were FELIDAE(which I have never heard of, sorry!). MO still preferred the hard food, (I think because that is what he ate before) so we soaked the FELIDAE in the formula to soften it up. Of course he ate very well. The next morning he was standing a little better, so we had some hope.
In a week’s time, he had good color in his eyes, and was walking fine, even grooming himself. Since he ate the food so well, we decided to keep purchasing it for him. In three week’s time from then, the swelling in his stomach was gone, he was running, purring and acting like a normal cat. Now at approximately 15 weeks old, he is the most loving cat I have ever come across. His eyes are crystal clear, and he has the shiniest coat I have ever seen on a cat. I am so amazed at what FELIDAE food was able to accomplish. I am so impressed by it that I have now just recently switched my dogs over to CANIDAE. I figured if it did wonders on the cat, has to be great for my dogs as well. Thank you for such a wonderful product. With MO’s coat and eyes being so shiny, I have to imagine that it is doing wonders internally as well. I look forward to seeing the transition in my dogs in the future.

Back to no hairballs
8/24/2010 – All three of my cats love the FELIDAE Chicken & Rice dry food and have had very few hairballs since I started feeding them FELIDAE a few years ago. My cat who is very prone to illness has also been much healthier! I did briefly try your newer Grain Free Salmon kibble but found that my cats experienced some hairball issues on it… so I am back to Chicken & Rice and back to no hairballs! Thank you for making such a high quality product!
Keep making good cat food!
6/17/2010 – Where can I leave our positive comments about your canned cat food? I hope these pictures can be used. We would like to comment about FELIDAE cat food and how healthy our kitties are because of it. Keep making good cat food! We tell others about your product and our vet says our cats look VERY healthy and asks us what we feed them.
My retired Mom is also feeding her three new rescued cats (Kiki, Buster and Honey) your dry and canned foods now. She rescued a Mom and her two kittens last August. They are doing well on your foods too!
This is my Lena, she is a sweet Calico mix, five years old. Just had to have a fluid cyst removed from her hind leg, cost $600 but it was getting big and needed to go. She’s a beauty isn’t she? She was given to a shelter after a girl found her outside and took her home but her Mom said she couldn’t keep her. When we got her she was sick with Calicivirus, took her to a holistic vet in Barrington who treated it fast with herbal meds and gave her chiropractic adjustment.
Luka is six years old. He had fatty liver disease two years ago. We had to tube feed him for two months to save his life. The tube was surgically put in the side of his neck. He hated the whole process, and it was very stressful, but we had to help him! He isn’t losing weight now. He is always hungry and we feed him FELIDAE PLATINUM food.
Jerry, the senior citizen here, he’s 20 now, was diagnosed with kidney disease. Was giving him IV fluids for months but was able to wean him off. He’s drinking on his own, eating well. He cannot chew dry food so his diet is ALL canned FELIDAE PLATINUM.
Petite Molly is 14 months old. She is a sweetheart and one of the three babies we rescued last October. Some person was handing them out in front of a Sam’s Club in Countryside from a shopping cart! They were terrified. My mom and sister adopted them!
Leo is Molly’s brother. He’s a shy, quiet, passive boy, a loner. Loves paper wads and tries to eat my Spider Plants!
Lyle, the other boy in the trio, he’s a cuddler, attached to my son. He follows us when we go to another room and loves to be held.
Everyday, she got better. I feel like I have a new cat.
6/8/2010 – I just wanted to send a note of gratitude. My cat is doing so well after being on FELIDAE. I just cannot say how much I appreciate having a healthy, happy cat again. Thank you for making such a fabulous product.
Pictured is Jasmine, she’s almost 10. All her life she’s been such a picky eater. And then she got really sick with Feline Upper Respiratory Disease. I was so concerned because she got so thin and she wasn’t eating ANYTHING.
Someone recommended we try FELIDAE. Well, she acted like she had never been fed. Everyday, she got better. I feel like I have a new cat. She’s more relaxed, not jumpy. She’s more playful and happy. What a difference in her appearance, her coat is gorgeous. I can’t thank you enough. =^^=
Now we’re a complete CANIDAE and FELIDAE feeding household!
5/3/2010 – We started using CANIDAE after a bad experience with another brand. They always seemed to have runny stools that never improved, and they were turning their noses up at this other “super-premium” food. We did some research online and found CANIDAE. I was excited about it because it had no corn in it, and the price was reasonable, and it also supported our local pet stores rather than the big corporations! I emailed CANIDAE for some samples to make sure the dogs liked it (with 5 dogs you’re almost guaranteed someone won’t like a food), and they devoured them. I think they thought the food was a treat! So we went out and bought CANIDAE All Life Stages right away, and the dogs simply LOVE it. They even picked the CANIDAE out of their bowls when we were mixing the old and new food together. Even our older, pickier dogs picked out the CANIDAE to eat. Just recently I decided to try the Chicken and Rice version, and they loved it as well. I think it’s great CANIDAE offers a few different flavors that I can rotate so they can have some variety in their diet while still eating a great nutritional food.
We also have two cats, and decided that since the dogs were on CANIDAE, that we might as well try FELIDAE. They, just like the dogs, picked their FELIDAE kibble out of the bowl and left their old food. They made that decision easy for us 🙂 So now we’re a complete CANIDAE and FELIDAE-feeding household! We even buy the Snap-Bits and Snap-Biscuits and they dance in circles in the morning for their treats!
Their customer service is first-rate – always quick to reply to emails and offer coupons and frequent-buyers information. How can you go wrong with such a great company?
The photo I’ve attached shows the two pups of the family (they’re about a year old now). River, the black and white Siberian husky, and Charlie the one-eyed husky/collie mix. They’re my children and I wouldn’t feed them anything else! The cat is Phoebe, a shelter-kitty. They all say thank you for such a great food! They’re all happy and healthier than they’ve ever been.
Thank you again!
I thank you for making great food to keep our gang strong
12/15/2009 – Words can’t express how important my gang is to me! I want them to be healthy and strong and thanks to your food they are!
Our newest baby, Little Guy, was rescued by my husband who found him very sickly and so weak he could barely eat canned food.
Little Guy quickly made great progress and is now ruling the roost and thriving thanks to FELIDAE Grain Free canned and dry formulas! We think he’s finally off to a great start!
We have two other babies too: Meg who is 16 and Spotty who is almost 15. As soon as I opened the first can of FELIDAE Grain Free they both came running and chowed down. Now all three are happy, healthy cats. The first picture [above] is of Little Guy the day my husband brought him home and the second is of Little Guy just two weeks after we started feeding your grain free canned! He is really strong and healthy now thanks to your food and I thank you so much!
The third picture is of Meg, our 16 year old polydactyl who is still going strong thanks to FELIDAE grain free food!
This last picture [left] is of Spotty on the couch. He is our handsome big boy!
Thank you so much! I am one happy human and will have to order more of the big 13 ounce cans. I thank you for making great food to keep our gang strong!
There were no hairballs
10/13/2009 – I began feeding my two cats, Milton and Lucy, FELIDAE Grain Free dry cat food at the beginning of September. After approximately 2 1/2 weeks, I noticed there were no hairballs being thrown up around the house. Previously, with other food, I had that quite frequently. I’m so happy with the results since I switched to FELIDAE. They love the taste also.
She has never thrown up and only once did I find a tiny fur ball
1/4/2009 – Angie, named for an angel. She is a rescue cat and since she decided to live with me I have not had another sad day since. Angie is 4, acts like a kitten. I have had her for two years.
I can cut her nails, brush her teeth, she does not scratch on furniture, curtains, or anything else except her scratching post.
She has never thrown up and only once did I find a tiny fur ball. I believe this is because of the nutritious FELIDAE wet food I feed her.
Bouncer and Archie love the change
10/21/2008 – Wow, I’m not sure what was done to improve the FELIDAE Cat and Kitten Formula but both of my cats are crazy about it. Prior to the change my cats seemed to eat their dry food because it was all that was available. Bouncer and Archie love the change!
Thank you so much for improving FELIDAE
8/26/2008 – I just want to tell you how much my cat loves the new FELIDAE formula better than the old one. To be honest, I bought the food because I really liked the ingredients and knew it was the best for my cat, but she really didn’t eat it that well. Well I thought I would give you one more try before switching brands and OMG my cat “Chloe” won’t stop eating the new food. I have to measure her food now or she will over eat. After two months on the new food her coat is better than ever and she just shines with health. Thank you so much for improving FELIDAE Cat and Kitten food.

Wish we had tried FELIDAE years ago
8/25/2008 – Oh boy did we have trouble with our finicky little cats. We have four of them and they are all over 8 years old. For the past six months or so they have been vomiting on and off and their fur looked scruffy. We thought maybe they were just getting older, but took them all in for a checkup at the vet who didn’t find anything wrong and suggested that we try a new food. She gave us some brand names to try but the vomiting seemed to get worse. A clerk at the pet store said FELIDAE Platinum was just improved and he’d heard lots of good feedback. We gave it a try and the vomiting stopped. What a relief! All of their coats are starting to look shiny and smooth again. Wish we had tried FELIDAE years ago. Thanks so much for making a quality cat food.

Thank you for your commitment to the health of cats
5/23/2008 – I just wanted to say thank you for making such a wonderful cat food. We have had problems with one of our cats throwing up for the last four years despite having tried a multitude of “special” foods. We learned of FELIDAE through a family member and decided to try it. It is wonderful! Our cat no longer gets sick and her coat is thick and shiny. Our veterinarian saw her yesterday and remarked at how healthy she was. Thank you for your commitment to the health of cats.
