OK, this is odd...

For some reason, my feral cats have stopped eating--or, anyway, they're not eating much. I'm putting out the same food as always (Purina Cat Chow), I cleaned their bowls, I knocked the crud out of the inside of their food shelter, but the food barely dwindles, as if there's something wrong with it. I hope Purina isn't caught up in the tainted Chinese food scandal now. Guess I better check....

Far as we know they are not involved at all nor were they before and that they are an honest company with integrity. But we remember the first sign that the food was bad was the cats refused it.
Could it be how you've stored it somehow? Did it get moist or moldy? Do you see any bugs in it?
Its really weird they've gone off it like that.

The food is stored in a good plastic container with a latching lid that I got from PetSmart. I checked it for bugs, weird smells, effluvia from sick kitties...not a thing wrong with it, as far as I can tell. And my research about Purina confirms that there hasn't been any contamination of their dry food.
