Life's Abundance - when only the BEST will do~!
My name is Shaila Bernard and a Kitten Parent of Desert Willow Cattery.
As far back as I can remember, 5 years old - - almost thirty two years ago I have loved Persian cats.
In 1995, after landing a job in New Hampshire I found a breeder of Persian cats and she had a shaded silver kitten. And he was such a sweetie! I made him into the most loved and spoiled indoor kitten as all of us know and love our babies! I spared no expense when it came to buying teepee's for him to sleep in - - though he often slept in my bed of course! I even checked with vets and breeders to ensure he had the best foods and treats! In those times it was IAMS.
When he was 12 years old he began to drink water constantly. He would still eat and purr and want to be loved but he was always thirsty. The vets all said he was just thirsty and it was nothing to worry about, so I didn’t worry about it. A few months later he started throwing up. Again worried I took him to my Vet and was reassured that this was only hair balls; after all, he was a long haired cat? And even though there was no hair in what was coming up, they insisted that it was hairballs.
Eventually, he started to lose weight, and would not eat anything and he couldn't’ even use his litter box any longer. Again I sought out answers through several vets, all suggesting fluids once a week and he could stay alive - -but now the blood work was showing he had kidney failure and it was only a matter of time. After a two attempt of trying to give him fluids and understanding how much love he had brought me and how much I treasured our sweet years together, I knew how much pain he was in, it was obvious. I knew in my heart it was time to let him go. I contacted a vet she agreed it was time. So I had his life terminated along with a big piece of my heart. I know today without a doubt this could have been prevented if I had known the food I was feeding my cats had been on recall.
In my search for another friend to fill this void, I contacted Theresa at Desert Willow and told her my story. She told me about the fillers now in cat & dog foods and how so much is coming in from outside of the country making it impossible to monitor quality. She also educated me on how bad corn products were for our animals now. Cancer growing ingredients now wrapped around pretty packaging is the NUMBER 1 Killer of Dogs and Cats!
Securely, I purchased two kittens from Desert Willow Cattery, a Blue Point and a Seal Point. And they get nothing but Life’s Abundance - - cat food, treats and moist food. They also get a spoonful of yogurt a day in the evening –they LOVE it! They are healthy kittens, happy, and SLIGHTLY spoiled with love. They have two toy boxes and three or four gyms to exercise on. My heart is full of joy once again.
I have another cat Sabrina who was a friend to the one I lost fed the same way with the same food until I recently began feeding Life's Abundance. ONE month after putting down my other cat, Sabrina started going into excessive thirst and throwing up. She will eat some days and others she does not eat at all. The blood tests showed the same systems with her. I expect by summer I will have to euthanize her also - - she ate the same food until recently. Eventually she will stop eating or not go to the litter box just as my other did. The damage is already done and it’s only a matter of time now. How horrible that PET FOOD COMPANIES do not have our “little 4 legged family members” best interest in their hearts as they make food that is suppose to sustain them. It's tradgic to learn how little my animals mean to these big pet food companies. They so eloquently teach us to trust them through their meaningful commercials with flowery words -- that now mean nothing to me! Watch out because these foods are still on the shelves!
My kittens will stay on Life’s Abundance as I don’t want to see another pet that I love go through pain of kidney failure or see their system shut down due to food I BELIEVED was safe and fed it to them myself!
Theresa-- thank you for taking time to “teach” on proper care & nutrition for our animals from a holistic point of view. I know you believe a healthy balance of both Modern & Holistic medicine is important, but the eye opening side of saying “NO” to our vets is very helpful for future issues that can arise too. Also for spending so much time on the education of proper nutrition, vaccinations and so many other issues that we can do safely that will not harm them as too many “DRUGS” do for our beloved pets.
My heart rests knowing my current Cats will live long happy lives full of contentment and happiness. I know they should live comfortably into their early 20’s! And when it’s their time to go because of a long lived healthy life, they will pass on dreaming of chasing birds into eternity.
