[Guest Review] Fortiflora & Other Toppings

[By Guest Reviewer WZ & her kitty, Tiger]

Cats, what do we do with them when they simply refuse to eat? A task made even more difficult when its raw food.

I was getting increasingly desperate transiting my one-year old cat Tiger, to raw meat, and on top of that, he was getting picky almost overnight. One day he’s alright with raw beef, but other days, he takes a couple of pieces and refuses to eat anymore.

I had been feeding him nearly-cooked chicken for the last few months, before graduating to mostly raw chicken with a 10-20 per cent surface-cook, just to get rid of any bacteria.

Then, one fine day sometime in the last couple of weeks, he absolutely refused to eat chicken any longer.

I switched him to raw beef before trying chicken again, with the same result.

This was when Forti-Flora comes to the rescue. Before I sprinkled this digestive supplement on, I had tried to feed him raw chicken cooked a little more than usual to lure him in, no effect. I had to try THREE different toppings before he finished three-quarters of his food.

First I sprinkled some Feline K9 natural on top, he ate a bit more, and stopped, next i used some fish oil.

So now, I’m trying what appears to be the feline equivalent of hash – Forti Flora!! (and you thought that was catnip, didn’t you).

At first, he still didn’t go for it, but then, he caught a whiff of the powder and in an instant, he was all over the chicken. Praise the Forti-flora!

Other tips: Some owners feed their cats less times a day so that their hunger ensures they really do eat. I cap my feeding times to twice a day now. Its overkill, but I’ve also bought some other toppings such as dried bonito flakes(a type of fish). Some owners also try real bacon bits and cheese.
