An inspiring yet complicated story for Sage with Kidney Issues caused
by Food Allergies that a Raw Diet Resolved! So happy for Sage!

Our path to starting a raw diet is a complicated one. We have a Maine Coon, Sage, who was diagnosed with kidney failure as a young 9-month old kitten. Everything was normal until one night he vomited and collapsed, groaning. We rushed him to the emergency vet where they told us to prepare to say goodbye, as he was experiencing kidney and heart failure. Test after test and we could not figure out the cause. Fortunately he survived the night and was moved to our local vet where he was put on fluids and kept on a kidney diet until his off the charts BUN and CREA levels returned to a stable number. It took about 28 days. We brought him home along with his canned kidney food, and only 3 days later, he spiked and was back at the vet. At that time I reached out to a former vet to our dogs who specialized in food-based remedies. Our dogs have been on a raw diet since 2 years old and they are now a healthy 14 years and still going strong! He asked for blood and tissue samples, his full chart, and for us to have a kidney ultrasound performed. We followed his instructions and overnighted everything to him (we’re in CA and his practice is in TN). He concluded that Sage’s kidneys were actually healthy, and his episodes were caused by food allergies that caused intestinal swelling so significant the blood supply to the kidneys was compromised. He instructed us to pick up Sage, bring him home, and only feed him raw Organic Grass Fed/Finished ground beef and slightly steamed green beans. We decided it was worth trying since his current situation of canned kidney diet and 24/hr fluids was not a long term solution. We brought him home and fed him the raw program. Three days later we returned to the vet for follow up blood tests and his values had surprisingly lowered. We continued the new regimen and eventually spaced out the blood tests to monthly. Four months later we had another kidney ultrasound and saw the intestinal swelling was gone and he was in a healthy state. A few years passed and things were good. We were having his supplements prepared by a local dog food company who specialized in home cooked meals. It was expensive and he was reluctant to eat the supplements, but it worked. A few years after the initial episode, we found ourselves expecting our first child and through the chaos of welcoming a new baby into the family, and having the confidence of Sage’s good health, we started feeding him a raw diet of Primal freeze-dried bites. Within less than a year, Sage had another episode and we were back at the vet. Although his BUN and CREA were again off the charts, I immediately took him home, without fluids, and fed him the raw beef and green beans. Three days later we returned to the vet and his numbers had again lowered. We were now faced with the undeniable fact that Sage would be on a home-prepared raw diet for the rest of his life. After some searching, I discovered that The Total Cat Store now carried an egg-free supplement option. This was perfect! Every ingredient was Sage approved! We purchased it, mixed in the meat, and he quickly ate every bite. It’s been months now and all his follow-up kidney panels have been normal and he continues to thrive. He’s almost 5 years old now and a big, healthy boy. I know our experience was extremely specific, but it only goes to show you that whole, raw foods can help the body heal itself even after given a grim diagnosis.

Our KItty Loves TCfeline Premix sense a kitten and is a Picture of Health!

Hello, Our cat loves the TCfeline and is doing well on it. We also have two small dogs that each consume around 1/4 lb of raw meat per day. I’m buying a powdered mixture similar to what you sell for cats and I was wondering if I can feed our dogs TCfeline as well? The dogs have on occasion eaten the cats food and liked it. He is not a year old yet, but he is doing very well. He was a stray kitten that we found along with his two brothers. We could not find their mother and they were crying and very hungry. Our cat was the smallest of the liter, but is now as big or Bigger than his two brothers who we placed in a good home. He was fed grain-free cat food for around the first few months, but I wanted to feed him raw and found your company. Your powdered mixture makes it so easy to feed raw. He has grown so much and is the picture of health since switching him to your formula mixed with raw ground meat. Oh, and he doesn’t sit at the water bowl anymore drinking an abnormal amount of water. Blessings,

Making a transition toward Better, Better and More Better food!

Thank you,Sam!   Looking very forward to receiving your product and  learning about this process and making a transition toward better, Better and More Better food for our 2 kitty boys (approaching 14 years).  It’s certainly about time that I do this!   I found you folks in a circuitous way…..did a search for making raw cat food and found site, Feline Nutrition Foundation, then nosing around this good site I found several choices for a supplier of a “ready mix” supplements – I’d shy-ed away from gathering all those separate pieces, quite daunting……but settled on your site mostly by instinct I’d say….I am such a novice that I couldn’t make any kind of experienced choice.   I could say that I got the best vibes from your site, your mission, our explanations, your products available and how to use……maybe the kitties were purring in my ear, who knows?  

I’ll most certainly take you up on your kind offer to check back in with any questions…THANKS!    Seems funny that something Nature took care of in yesteryear—the feeding of cats by the reduction of small rodents – has turned into a major transnational corporate establishment issue – with many high costs, some of the costs hidden (ie: additives).

Kitty thriving on Raw with TCfeline and its help him recover from diabetes!

Just thought I'd let you know that my cat has thrived on this raw diet. He is 14 & was sick & diagnosed with diabetes. The vets said insulin - I said no way. I have switched him over to this diet & he looks & feels fantastic! He has gained back his weight & his fur is soft again. I have tossed out all commercial cat food & treats. I am so glad I found you.

New Kittens New Start

After losing our two 14 year old Maine Coons last year, we found a Maine Coon breeder in Wisconsin and we waited impatiently during pregnancy, birth and then 12 more weeks. During this time the breeder introduced me to raw feeding. She has fed her breeding cats and kittens raw for her 20 years in the business, preparing 10 pounds of food/day. It all sounded overwhelming to me, but I was willing to try it, as the benefits Impressed me. When we went to pick up our beautiful, adorable kittens, Deb provided a carrier and a package of TCFeline Premix. So I now order the Premix and prepare 10 pounds of chicken breasts, egg yolks and Premix about every 10 days, freezing in small batches. Actually it’s easy, the kittens (now 4 months old) love it and meow loudly until they are fed. I feel I’m doing the right thing for our new girls, Cleo and Cassy.

Healthy Happy Kitties!

My oldest ginger boy, Solomon, had teeth issues for some time and had to have some removed. He also had urinary issues in the past. My other ginger boy, Tasuki, was starting to develop tooth problems and he had had constipation issues in the past. We just adopted a failed foster, Theo, and wanted to start him out on something that would prevent any tooth issues. Prior to switching to raw, we had been feeding Wellness, which was a lot better than most foods out there, but wasn't helping with their teeth. I researched and talked to a good friend online who was using your TCF powder and had great success with some of her cats abscessed teeth getting better! After some research, we started feeding raw chicken with your powder and even got a really good meat grinder to do that part ourselves too. It is amazing the improvement in my two older cats! (I don't notice much with the younger one since he's still young haha). Solomon no longer has trouble eating, and he doesn't chew on things like he used to. He has so much energy and seems like a kitten again, despite being 12. Tasuki has possibly changed the most! He used to hide a lot when company was over, or any sounds occurred at all that bothered him. He also used to sleep most of the time and not want our attention as often. Now he jumps up on the counter and rolls and rolls and meows and purrs and wants love and play all the time. He also doesn't seem as bothered by thunder or company. He's gotten slimmer and very healthy and his fur is amazing!!! I'm so so happy that my three sweet boys are doing well and I look forward to seeing if the raw diet prevents Theo from ever getting any tooth problems. Thank you so very much for making this wonderful product! I also think it's great that you are also in PA!!! I plan to be a customer for life! Thank you!!

Satisfied Cat

My name is TC and my mom switched my diet to TCfeline raw diet premix with raw chicken. I was very ill as a baby and somebody left me by my mom's waterfall. I fit in her hand when she found me and I didn't know how to drink or eat and had lost my voice crying for help. I was never able to gain weight. However I love this new diet and have gained weight enough to cover my bones. I'm so happy and content now in my new home! Thank you Total Cat Store

Bowel movement Issue Resolved and Acting Like a Kitten!

Good Morning Sam, I had written you before with general questions which you answered perfectly. I just want to let you know how thrilled I am with your product. My furry one (Bumbi) is a rescue (Ragdoll) who has had loose (very) stools from day one. I have tried everything to no avail. I started Bumbi on a raw diet and have purchased your raw diet premix (the one with everything in it).  You would have died laughing seeing me scurry to the litter box (daily) to check on Bumbi's stool for good news. Almost immediately, there were no HUGE wet globs so I thought for sure something must be stuck in there. It took maybe two days for Bumbi to pass a perfect, tiny, solid, tubular stool. Needless to say, his stool is absolutely perfect and Bumbi is acting like a kitten, running, jumping and terrorizing my 130 pound German Shepherd.  Needless to say, I am doing my HAPPY DANCE and thank you every so much!!!!!

20+ year old Kitty thriving because of feeding TCfeline Premix and Raw Cat Food!

Hi, I'd be happy to share a personal story about raw food kitty diets. Nine years ago we lost a wonderful kitty, Minou, to diabetes, after adjusting our lives to give her injections every 12 hours for two years. Minou and our older kitty Jazzy had been fed Purina Cat Chow. After we lost Minou I started reading about cat foods and how dangerous grains are in their diets -- which was the major ingredient of Cat Chow. I bought every book I could find on healthy cat food and found TC Feline through a store in Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. I ordered the mix and started making it and feeding Jazzy the fresh chicken and liver formula. Our new kitten, Ziggy, scratched around his dish like he was stalking a wild animal (!) and liked it from the first bite. Jazzy was a long-haired domestic and her fur has been looking like "The Fonz" -- kind of greasy and dull in spite of frequent brushing and grooming. But within a few weeks of being on the raw food diet her fur became full and fluffy and both cats thrived on their raw diet. After a couple of years I took a break from the raw food diet because my two kitty sitters were squeamish about handling raw food (and after having researched companies that made high protein canned food). Recently Jazzy, who was 20+ years, stopped eating the canned food and would only eat a little human canned tuna. I was happy to find your company and put Jazzy back on her raw food. Sadly we lost her last month but I know she thrived through most of her life because of the raw food diet. Thanks for carrying these great products.

TCFeline Premix Raw Diet Improved Coat and Stopped Vomiting

Hello! Just wanted to say a big thank you from me and my two cats, Phil and Nana! We discovered Total Cat Store and the awesome TCfeline product last year, and it's made a huge difference. Phil was overweight with stiff and straw-like fur, while Nana vomited up everything she ate. The TCfeline powder/raw diet has transformed my cats. Phil is super soft and has lost some weight, while Nana is able to keep down her meals. I can't thank you enough for sticking this product and for all of the useful information found via your site. This is definitely going to be a life-long purchase. Thanks again! Mandee, Phil, and Nana
