    Riley has a new sister named Lily who is part Greyhound or Whippet -- I definitely see a lot of Lily in Georgia. Does Georgia like to burrow under blankets and make caves for herself? Lily is constantly doing that...we think it might be because she has the thin skin of a Greyhound/Whippet.
    Georgia doesn't burrow but she has been known to have blankets put on her so she ends up being wrapped like a newborn baby. I used to frown on this until I noticed that Georgia will sometimes stay under the covers for a long time. I think most times she ends up getting to hot but it does appear that she enjoys it for a while. Most dogs don't like that but go figure. What makes it even more strange is that she appears to just love the cold. I had a few shots of her first snow where she just went bezerk. Crazy dog likes blankets and cold weather.

    We feed our cats Katz-n-Flocken all stages (we have one kitten and an adult cat). It has really helped the adult cat's coat. They seem to like it. The little one eats a ton of it, she is a growing Bengal kitty.

    Aww, twist my arm. Here's Georgia. She's from the local SPCA. We hit the lottery with her. She's only about 43 pounds and as near as we can figure she's a black lab mix with maybe border collie, dalmation, whippet, or greyhound in there. At two years old she is insanely playful so she would love to meet Riley. The local SPCA has a Riley look alike named Ethel up for adoption but we're not sure if we're ready for another dog.

    We use mostly Innova canned

    for two senior cats, one with diabetes (needs high protein) and another with hyperthyroid (too much protein is hard on her kidneys). Also, we've recently discovered Avoderm canned food with sauce.

    I used to frequent this dog forum http://www.dogforum.org/index.php and it has lively debates on food.

    Our dog gets Canidae or Innova and we mix kibble with wet from both. Both brands are almost always in the top two when I see rankings. I would love to switch our dog to a BARF (Bones and Raw Food) diet but I'm not sure I could find a good supply for the food and it scares me a bit.

    Only hard part with food is you never know how good it's really doing unless your dog had issues before. We pretty much started with high quality food so it could be the food that keeps her coat so healthy looking, or, it could be she just has an amazing coat. I should post a picture at some point, she looks a bit like Riley but has short hair.

    My dog eats alpo...I havent had any problems with it. I am thinking about getting a cat soon, any recommendations for food? I see some mentioned on the first page, can you get that food at regular grocery stores?

    After treatment my cat was fed...Fancy Feast at the vet! So I now I am buying both Newman's own and Fancy Feast.

    Most of her meals are mixed with meds, so sometimes it is a no go, I don't know if she doesn't like the flavor or the med taste.

    Newman's Own has a website, google the exact url.

    A chain store in the East Coast , Harris Teeter carries it .

    You can order Newman's Own from Costco.com, and a lot of natural groceries (such as Whole Foods) carry it.

    I've been blending my own mix of Science Diet dry foods - I mix up Advanced Protection® Senior 7+, Hairball Control Mature Adult 7+, and "Nature's Best" chicken or fish, usually; although sometimes I add the "Dental Care" or "Sensitive Skin" varietals to the mix. It gives my cat a little more variety plus helps her address whatever her seasonal issues are.

    However, I'd be really interested to find out where one can get Newman's Organic pet food. Is that only by mail order, or in stores, or...? Thanks!

    Newman's Own Organic has been great...

    See this article.

    "After the recall, Newman's Own Organics wanted to find out
    the source of the ingredients used in its entire pet food line. It
    took weeks to research the answer for a single product, its adult dog
    food. The company confirmed that every ingredient, from fresh,
    human-grade chicken free of antibiotics, to the vitamins, comes from
    U.S. sources, according to Peter Meehan, chief executive of Newman's
    Own Organics. "

    Iams changed several years ago when P&G bought the company and started mass marketing it.
    Bottom line on the food problems: there are still a lot of unknowns and there is no concrete answer right now.
