ORGANIX® Organic Canned Formula for Cats takes canned food to a new level. Outstanding taste combined with 95% certified organic ingredients means our cat will benefit from the very best available, bringing a lifetime of complete and balanced nutrition.Why serve canned food to your cat?Variety is the spice of life!
If you're tired of feeding your cat the same thing day after day, canned foods are a simple way to add new flavor and allure to a complete and balanced kibble diet. Cat on the mend, or needing to regain a few pounds?
More calorically dense than kibble and easy to digest, canned foods are a great option for cats recovering from illness or injury, and needing to regain lost weight. With a dollop of highly digestible canned food mixed in with kibble, you easily can add needed calories and nutrition to your pet's diet without adding a lot of volume. Having a tough time getting your finicky friend to eat?
Canned foods are a great way to encourage finicky eaters to eat a complete and balanced meal. If your furry family member is turning up their nose at what you're offering, try adding a spoonful of canned food to your pet's normal kibble meal. Mix well and then warm.
The aroma and flavor of the "wet" food is enhanced by warming, and the moisture brings out the flavors and aromas inherent in the kibble. A truly enticing mealtime! A tasty way to "hydrate. . ."
It's very common for cats to have a tough time drinking enough water to maintain a healthy urinary tract. "Wet" foods aren't a total solution, but they can play a valuable and tasty role in a strategy to encourage needed liquids into the systems of cats who just aren't thirsty enough for their own good! But remember: "Wield a light spoon . . ."
It seems it's a rarity when a cat adapts easily to dietary changes. In fact, most pets are sensitive to any change to their diet - even when the changes are positive, like stepping up to a new kibble formula, or adding canned food to encourage eating.
So, think about wielding a light spoon when adding canned foods to your cat's kibble. To eliminate unwanted surprises, "slow and gradual" is a good rule to follow when altering any established diet.

About Castor & Pollux
The origins of Castor & Pollux pet works were based on their firm belief that dog and cat owners were seeking better quality products for their four-legged family members. Work began on developing the first branded, premium quality line of pet products that would provide pet parents with healthy, safe and innovative choices for their dogs and cats. Brian and Shelley assembled a team of experts in animal nutrition, organic and natural ingredients, processing, packaging, distribution, veterinary medicine, and technology. Their goal was to develop specialty products in the top 12 categories in pet food and supplies to provide pet parents with a brand they could trust regardless of their dog or cat's needs. Castor & Pollux pet works launched in 2000 with 150 products.
