Go-Cat is made by Purina, and scores 0 out of 20 on Ethical Consumer's ratings table for cat food. A big fat zero. My bad for buying the stuff, that's for sure. The good news is that things can only get better. So I'm starting to mend our ways by trying out Lily's Kitchen, which scores a reasonable 12.5.
The good: I can buy Lily's Kitchen at my local high street pet shop. I got the fish flavour, and it does smell like there's plenty of actual fish in there. Crucially, Daisy really likes it.
The less good: it is very expensive. I've worked out that if I feed her the recommended daily amount for her weight, it will cost me around £275 a year. It also comes in small packets which will last 5 days at the most. This means that I'll have to buy several packs at a time, or start walking to the pet shop on a more regular basis. The packaging claims to be biodegradable (good), but I'd be disposing of around 73 packets a year (less good).
The verdict: if it was up to Daisy, we'd stick to Lily's Kitchen. However, the steep price and the inconveniently small packet sizes have left me unconvinced.
The quest continues...
