Updated: Dear IAMS Cat Food Company


Dear IAMS,

Please excuse any typos in this letter, I am rushing to get it done while my human has stepped out to the kitchen to make himself coffee. I have commandeered both his computer and blog to get in touch with you. My name is Ferguson, I am a ten-year old tabby cat. I like to say that I am a silver tabby, but truth be told I’m really more gray than silver, with a few tufts of ginger on my ample belly.

Since coming to live with my humans as a kitten I have enjoyed a number of your products, to the exclusion of all other foods, both feline and non. With the exception of a cat treat from time to time and, on special occasions, a piece of potato chip – for which I have developed an odd feline penchant –  for the last few years I have enjoyed dining on your Iams ProActive Health Indoor Weight & Hairball Care Dry Cat Food.

Old package on the left and new ‘made with chicken’ on the right

Recently my human brought home a new bag of said food and I was shocked to see that it now has a photo and text stating it is made with chicken. I am a cat with very discriminating tastes, as such I am not a fan of poultry, finding it quite fowl in fact. Has the product always been made with chicken? Have I been duped all this time? Is this the first step on the slippery slope to veganism? Will I ever get my old food back?

Here he comes … thanks for reading this.

Best,

Ferguson

By the way I am including a photo of myself should you want to feature it on your packaging.

I got a response from the folks at IAMS. I have been eating chicken all along and did not know it. Huh. Just the new package. Guess I’ll go have lunch.

  1. Gee. Our canines seem to like the chicken better than the beef and even more than the lamb. Of course, there’s not much of any of them in your food, but we sympathize. I hope that vegan doesn’t rear its ugly head. You are feline. Vegan is for people from Vega.
