IAMS cat food

Meowm recently found out some stuff about IAMS cat food, specifically that they have been accused of inhumane animal testing. She read some stuff from PETA and read IAMS responses. She has decided that she will not buy IAMS anymore and will not purchase any Proctor & Gamble items as they produce IAMS cat and dog food. Here are some links that Meowm has (thank you Mama Cat in Paree):

And here is IAMS responses:

Please check them out and make your own decisions.

**Meowm would love to go tour their facilities, all of them, on her own, but that is not possible. She feels that is the only way to make a truthful, well informed decision and since she can't do that she has decided to do what she said above. She had already taken away my IAMS dry and replaced it with the RC Siamese, and I won't eat the IAMS wet. She only uses about 3 other P & G items, so she will find replacements for those.**

I have heard some of those things about Iams before. Luckily for me (I guess) I eat Hills prescription food so I do not have to make a decision about what to eat. Thanks for the links.

Thanks for sharing Junior! I use to eat Iams but my VET man said it was not something we should be eating. Great investigating!

Well, a friend of my mom's has a husband who works for Proctor & Gamble, and her friend said that the allegations against IAMS were totally made up by PETA. They don't engage in inhumane testing, according to her friend and her friend's husband.

We do not eat any food that has animal by-products, wheat gluten, or was recalled (if we remember right, IAMS fits all 3 categories). This makes Mommy crazy at the store. Especially since we got picky when she kept changing out foods after the recalls. Heh heh. We like to keep her on her toes. Hope you find new food that does not make you sick.

Thank you for the very informative links. I hope you can find a food that doesn't make you sick very soon.

Thank you so much for your kind words about my sister-in-law. They helped me tremendously.

Don't believe ANYTHING PETA says. They are not an animal rights group, they are a terrorist organization. I am waiting for the day when they go too far and are exposed for what they truely are. Do not support Peta!

we won't eat IAMS foods anyway - we doesn't like it, but thanks for the info. Your mewom is right, the only way to know the truth is to see for yourself, but that is just too hard to do anymore.

Peta lies! Dey also kill dogs and cats when dey is suppose to be "rescuing" dem. They take in billions of dollars every year and support no humane or animal welfare organizations. But we don't eat Iam's anyway for other reasons.

Hi Junior!

Tell your Meowmy thanks so much for her generous donation to Project H.A.M. for 10 poodins instead of only 6 in the bed. That was so kind of her.

We heard this of IAMS some years ago but momma does not buy thems anyway and we won't eat it if she does.
Not sure who is right, there are so many oppositional opinions on this topic!
It's sad 'cause you'll never know for sure if the company does lie to you when they say they don't do no animal testing or ofur stuff :(

1) PETA are not known for their honesty
2) Those reports are 10 YEARS OLD before Iams was bought by P&G.
3) To those of you who said "im fine as i use a different premium food" (ie Hills) read the WHOLE PETA site and you will see that they are all listed as "testing on animals" they just chose to publically go after one brand in particular, Iams.
4)Testing on animals means feeding them the food... NOT cutting thier skin off to test DHA levels! Do you really believe skin samples would be taken to test a omega that assists the BRAIN?!
