A Review of Cat Sure: Nutrition Supplement for Cats
Cat Sure: Nutrition for Mature Cats
Cat Sure has helped extend the life of my cat.
I have a very old cat. Although his exact age cannot be documented, I got him in 1996 when he was 10 years old. If this is correct, he is now 25 years old.
He has lost some teeth and has some kidney problems, which combine to make it harder for my mature cat to get enough nutrition. He began to vomit a few times a week and lose weight.
This summer I started supplementing my cat's nutrition with CatSure. He loves it and it is helping him maintain his weight and health.
What is Cat Sure?
CatSure is a food supplement made by Pet Ag for mature cats, seven years and up, similar to PediaSure for children and EnSure for adult humans.
It is all natural and enriched with vitamins and minerals. It has a vanilla flavor that appeals to older cats and increases water consumption, which is often reduced and inadequate in mature felines.
It contains highly utilizable proteins for older cats, is low in fat to prevent obesity in less active pets. It is easy for mature kitties to digest.
It comes in 11 ounce cans, and my cat is currently consuming a can of Cat Sure every two or three days.
Available by the single can, a carton of four, or a case of twelve. Free shipping with Amazon Prime!
The First Day We Tried Cat Sure
Whenever I give my mature cat a new food, I feel a bit anxious. His digestive system is very sensitive and many things will cause him to vomit.
I first tried putting a small amount of Cat Sure in a shallow bowl. My kitty sniffed it and then walked away. He would not eat it.
Next I tried mixing about a tablespoon and a half of Cat Sure with a serving of his canned food. He absolutely loved this, gobbled it up and begged for more.
This was huge, because this kitty had become very finicky about his food and would eat only small amounts. I was afraid of vomiting, but I gave him more. I was very pleased that he kept it down.

Increasing the Ratios of Cat Sure to Canned Cat Food
Gradually I added increasing amounts of Cat Sure and mixed it with the canned cat food. I use a fork and mash the canned meat and mix it well with the milk supplement. I am now mixing the supplement and the food in a 1 to 1 ratio.
My cat likes this very much and he is eating more than he was previously. His coat looks healthier and he seems to have more energy. He has stopped losing weight, although he has not yet started gaining back what he previously lost.
One thing to keep in mind with Cat Sure is that it will only stay fresh in the refrigerator for 72 hours and then you must throw it away. I tried to stretch this time frame and my cat would not eat it. You can freeze the Cat Sure in an ice cube tray and then put the frozen cubes in a plastic bag in the freezer. Thaw them when you are ready to use them.

At times like these, this book can be a tremendous comfort and guide, as we navigate the geriatric years with our cats.
The purpose of this book is to educate and console the cat owner. It covers the aging process and signs of decline, medical disorders, nutrition, medical care, and choices before and after death or euthanasia. Interspersed are brief stories and anecdotes.
My Experience Using Cat Sure with an Older Foster Cat
A month ago another senior cat entered my home as a foster pet. He was not feeling well and the vet diagnosed him with hyperthyroidism.
After getting medicine for this for about two weeks, the cat started vomiting. He quickly lost his appetite and started vomiting bile and any water he drank. That was when I started offering him Cat Sure. He turned out to have gall stones, and I could not get him to eat any food, but he did eat small amounts of Cat Sure and kept it down.
This kitty ended up going to a medical foster home who had more experience dealing with his complex needs. I just wanted to share with you another senior cat's endorsement of this terrific product. He was willing to consume this when he refused any other type of food.
