A couple of weeks ago I posted an article that said Special Kitty cat food may be contaminated (based on some local accounts of cats dying). Today the manufacturer announced a recall of Special Kitty and several other brands.

Thanks, had to go check what I have right now. I jump around at the best supposedly and the least expensive as I have 2 large dogs and 3 small.
I also have 4 cats.
Why are we having our pets targeted by terrorists? Is it so that when the civil war breaks out they will have less pets to waste bullets on to get to us?

As a member of the Cat Lovers Society, thank you so much for informing us of this...

Excellent community service and I truly appreciate it...

Now, to go see what kind of food I have stored for my babies...

I normally use Friskies, but they do like some variety at times and I keep other stuff around...

Well they think its Salmonella poisoning (and lets hope that really IS the cause, not some tainted chinese ingredients) and Salmonella is usually only a big problem for young or otherwise weakened animals and people.

But it is contagious even when there are no symptoms, so if there are babies, frail, or elderly animals or people in the house it would be a good idea to keep an eye out for illness even if those individuals did not eat or handle the food directly.
