    I bought expensive organic, no-cruelty food for my cats after I specifically did research on it, and they completely ignored it. To be fair, though, it didn’t look or smell appetizing, even for cat food.

    They also prefer the cheap store brands that I feed to the ferals to the expensive, high quality food that I buy for them. It’s like feeding your kids organic broccoli when all they want is McDonalds.

    No, I feed my kitten Science Diet, which I do not believe is organic.  It is keeping her very healthy though!

    Nope. He is perfectly content with his beneful and healthy too so I can’t see the point.

    I feed my cats Wellness, which I believe is organic.  I would never go back to grocery store food, personally.  My cats have better/healthier fur, their litterbox smells a lot less, and I’m just happier knowing they’re eating more “pure” food.

    I tried. I started our cats off on Purina without giving much thought to it. That was 8 years ago, and they refuse to switch foods. About 4 years ago I began trying to iontroduce organic cat food instead, and have failed with every brand. They will eat around the new food that is mixed into their old food, leaving only the new food at the bottom of the dish.

    When we get the adult dog that we promised to take (long story), we will try to slowly switch him over from the grocery store stuff he is currently fed to an organic dog food. Since he is not very picky about what he eats, I think the switch will go over just fine. And when we get the puppy and chickens in 2013, they will be raised from babyhood on organic feed.

    I voted “other”.

    We feed prey-model raw diet: 80% meat, 10% bone, 10% secreting organs. It’s mostly non-organic. (I can’t afford organic grass-fed meat for myself all the time, I buy it when I can. I certainly can’t afford $7+/pound meat for the dogs every day. I try to keep the meat I purchase for them under $1/pound for poultry and under $2/pound for red meat.)

    Our dog has several food allergies so there is only ONE food he can even be on without having a reaction.  So no.

    Idk if its technically considered organic but its got all natural ingredients with no by products or fillers and real chicken. It took me a while to find an affordable one that she liked. I would have gone with blue but its expensive. So my dog eats 4health brand from Tractor Supply. She gets a mixture of dry and wet cus she’s spoiled rotten. Its got very similar ingredients to blue for half the cost! Dog’s happy and I’m happy!

    Fiance was sold on Pedigree because thats what his dogs ate growing up. But just because they lived doesn’t mean they were healthy. So that was the first bag we bought her but after reading what they put in those I refused to feed her that so I was on a hunt to find something real and healthier.  She was a picky eater and Fiance told me I was nuts and to just give her pedigree cus all the other brands are like double the price. We went through like 2 or 3 other brands before finding this. Blue is like what 50 bucks for a 35lb bag i think… I pay like 24 i think. Very happy! I highly suggest 4health if you have a tractor supply near you!

    We do Purina One I think? And Science Diet. Nothing too fancy, but we prefer to get a food that has meat as the main ingredient. I can’t afford to feed myself and Fiance with only organic food, I am definitely not paying to feed my dogs only organic food. They are both happy and healthy and thats what counts to me.
