9Lives Cat Food Company Profile
I bought a large bag of Cat Indoor(9Lives)because it was a bit cheaper. My 3 cats leave some fod always in the bowl. With other cat foods (Friskies) they never do that. The food has old-faded colors, however it says expiration date is 2015. I will never buy 9 Lives dry cat food again. It is poor quality.
I usually am very picky about what I feed my three cats. I made the mistake of sending husband out for cat food. He came back with 9Lives indoor dry cat food, and immediately after the first feeding the problems started. My cats barely emptied their bowls, and started throwing up. There was puke everywhere. And the smell that came from the litter box was unbearable. I would have to scoop the litter every time they used while they are 9 lives. The smell was soooo bad. After about three days of cleaning up puke, I refused to feed my cats that poison. I went and bought Blue wilderness, and the puking has stopped and the litter box is finally back to normal. I threw out the rest of the nine lives, and I will never buy it again.
My family had bought a house and the previous owner would feed the stray neighborhood cats. They were hanging around and causing a real problem with getting into the house and peeing when we weren't there. We decided to use 9Lives wet cat food to trap them so we could take them to the shelter. We bought a 4 pack of gravy and beef flavor and put it in a cage. The cats were basically starving and ran to the cage. We did manage to catch them but to our surprise the cats we caught refused to even touch this food. These are STARVING CATS, and they WOULDN'T TOUCH 9LIVES. I have a tripod male 7 year old male cat who I have had for 6. Someone abandoned him and left him for dead. I took him in and he's been the best cat I ever had. I usually give Friskies wet food too, but decided to try 9Lives because money was a little tight and 9Lives was cheaper at the stores. Worst mistake I ever made. My cat (Smokey) would eat the gravy and run away from the food. My cat eats everything and it was not like him not to touch his food. He started losing weight. He was having problems pooping. He was constipated and blood was coming out of his bottom. He was wheezing trying to vomit, sneezing, with rattling while he was breathing, and nasty gunk coming out of his eyes. Took him to vet immediately. My cat is now on amoxicillin for an upper respiratory/urinary tract infection. And now have to have x rays done next week because the vet said he's not gaining any weight. A few weeks later I used another can to give my cat his antibiotics. I thought the starving cats had belly aches and didn't feel like eating. I was wrong. My healthy and happy indoor cat who adores wet cat food wouldn't eat this food either. He just looked up at me with a look of disgust and disappointment. And get this, when I opened the last can, it was discolored and disgusting. The food was in date but it had started turning a very disturbing purple color. I threw out all the 9Lives I had in my house after seeing that cats are dying because of this product. 9Lives, NEVER AGAIN. Morris has never forgotten his humble beginnings as a rescue cat. He and 9Lives® cat food continue to bring great taste and balanced nutrition to cats around the world. And Morris will not rest until every cat finds a home.Since I switched him back to Friskies he's eating everything again. But the vet told me there is a possibility my cat might have another tumor and this time possibly growing in his stomach. They also told me to stay away from 9Lives. I have also emailed 9Lives and they just said they would let their managers know and sent me free coupons to get free cans of 9Lives wet food. My cat could have died. I'm pissed off because my cat has never been this sick after he had his back left leg removed due to a tumor. I don't know who was my cat's owners before me but I wonder if they also gave him 9Lives.I have been feeding my cat the 9Lives cat food because likes the can food, but he became sick. I thought to switch to a different brand and decided to go with EverPet cat food figuring that would help, but it didn't, so I took my cat to the vet and they had to keep him there for a while. A few days later there was no change. $200.00 later I decided to try to feed it to him through a feeder. He started looking better, but he was getting weaker. I took him back to the vet and $51.00 dollars later due to him needing vitamins and a stronger medication.
