Germaine was out of food yesterday. I thought fatty would be able to reach before I finish work. then fetch me to SS2 to buy California Natural but..7PM only he started the journey. Crap! Ended up, I asked him to buy it from Ipoh for me. Unfortunately, all shops were CLOSED. Devastated (Is this the correct spelling?), I sms-ed Crys to see if she could help. Thanks a million to this kai ma, who sent over a packet of Blackwood's Lamb and Rice, with extra 10 bucks delivery charge. LOL!
I did some research on what they called Super Premium and Hollistic dogfood. Well, brands like Pedigree and Alpo are considered as commercialized. Hollistic is of course better than Super Premium in terms of ingredients. Some brands like NutraGold and Innova have both versions of Hollistic and Super Premium. Confused on the ingredients on the label? Click HERE! Holistic would have no soya, no wheat, no corn, no by-products, no gluten, no dairy, no artificial colours and flavours. Some holistic brands use Beet pulp in their food. It doesn't give nutritional value but it gives fiber in the diet. Well, to me, it's better than CORN.

Hmmm I'd be settling for CatNat after Blakwood finishes. Tho, it's hard to look for in Selangor area, I could always go back Ipoh to buy. I don't mind the price actually if they can make my baby live longer! Think about it.
