Many of you who have been around for years, know that I give Charlie and Trigg, my Ragdoll cats, Whole Life Pet Products treats every day after we come inside. I started calling them “cheats” years ago, and so that’s what many readers call them too. My sister’s cats eat them too.
Addie, my sister’s seal bicolor Ragdoll cat, has a gastrointestinal disease, Feline Gastrointestinal Eosinophilic Sclerosing Fibroplasia. The disease is exacerbated when inflammation occurs in her gut. After the discovery and the emergency surgery and as things settled down, Amy took Addie to our very trusted pet acupuncturist, Pat Perkins. She suggested that Addie eat “cold meats” for the rest of her life. In Chinese medicine, certain foods “carry” different temperatures and are deemed as “warm” or “cold”. Chicken is a warm meat, whereas Turkey is a cold meat. Duck is also a cold meat. Addie has to avoid chicken and fish, as a result – which has made it more difficult for my sister to find foods that have limited ingredients.
In this video, Ash and Addie are getting duck and turkey treats from Whole Life. Ash doesn’t need cold meats, necessarily, but he eats what Addie does (mostly). It is nice that Whole Life makes safe, healthy cat treats that are not made from chicken and do not have chicken in them.
In fact, the Whole Life Just One treats are made with just one ingredient (hence the name) – either the muscle or organ meat from the animal on the bag (Duck, Chicken, Turkey, Salmon, Cod, Beef, etc.)
You can buy them on Amazon or on Chewy.com:
