Caffeine in your cat food?

Returning to the topic of cat food, I heard a disturbing fact the other day. Apparently, what some pet manufacturers have done in the past to increase their sales (and hopefully they do not do this today) is to put trace amounts of caffeine in their food products. So, you start feeding your cat a particular brand of food, and the cat actually becomes slightly addicted to the food. Then, when you try and change the food for whatever reason, the cat refuses to eat anything else, and so the pet food manufacturers have just conned you into staying with their products for life. Next time you’re buying food for your cat, make sure you check the label to confirm that there’s no caffeine in there. Ingredients should be natural, wholesome, and healthy.
