And you can too!  Why doesn't ANYONE seem to support me on this?  As far as I am concerned, eating cat food is safe.  After all, it doesn't say anywhere on the bag that it isn't.  There seem to be some people sticking their nose all up in my business now because I eat cat food and they don't "approve."  Of course there aren't any studies proving that eating cat food is safe.  Where would the money be in that?  It has to be a lot safer than smoking.  The ingredients are listed right on the bag, and they're SO specific.  Meat by products, crude animal protein, corn (Corn is a vegetable. It's healthy) rendered by product of beef heart, etc. etc.  Anyway, it's all safer than nicotine.  Now, there have been a few people that have died after eating cat food, but it was an off brand that I wouldn't trust.  The safest thing is to do is to make your own cat food, but if you can't do that, go with a trusted brand.  Feed it to your cat first, and make sure he's ok. At first you'll want to start with a bag a day (5 lbs) then work your way down as your withdrawals lessen.  Should you find yourself becoming dependent on cat food, you can wean yourself off by switching to an all tuna diet.  Again, don't do this forever, per se, just as long as you feel comfortable.  Now I'm sure someone is going to come along and tell me how my method is not as good as your method.  I'll probably get a warning point for going against the "quit police," but I just want you to know that there are other options out there.  They might kill you, but they are out there.  

 

(Disclaimer- This is satire.  I do not now, nor have I ever eaten cat food to quit smoking.  Since I quit smoking, I made a decision not to put anything in my body if I don't know what it is, and I recommend  others do the same)

Lizi this is funny, for sure.  Although I would never give my cats anything with corn or by products in it.  I started my cat's on a healthy diet long before me.  One cat died of kidney failure and another suffers from FLUD.  I believe it is due to the dry "junk" food.  Still your post cracks me up!

OMG  this is so funny and just what I needed this morning.  Sometimes this whole quit smoking thing is just so serious that it's nice for someone to lighten the mood every now and then.

I am sorry to hear about your kitty :(  What brand of food do you use now?  I usually buy the Iams that has meat as the first ingredient.  None of them taste good to me though ;)

I just started to quit by using cat food but I am not sure how much to eat or what brand? Should I continue with the full flavor or step down to light right away? Also, why do some people get upset when people try to quit using canned cat food? I don't see anyone knocking quitting using the dry food. Aren't we here to support each other?

Yes, there are some real "anti c fooders" around here.  Depending on your lifestyle, I would go with more of an indoor/hairball/urinary tract health style dry food if you are sort of a "home body," and did a lot of smoking indoors. Go with an active/outdoor/kitten food if you were a lighter smoker, or were very active.  Ahh, canned food can get a bit tricky because there are just so many on the market nowadays.  People will tell you it's ok to just go with a $.25 cent store brand canned food, I think that may be what have killed some "c fooders" in the past, not sure though?? You're right though, Beacon, whichever cat food method you choose, I will support you!  As for stepping down, I would do it at your own pace, one week?  Eight years?  Whatever feels comfortable to you.  Some people switch completely from smoking to "c fooding" alltogether.  They don't even have to eat human food anymore.  How awesome is that ?!

I'm kind of caught in the middle though and need some guidance.  I was sort of lazy before I quit and now I am really active.  I mean just the other day I was having a conversation with my step-father and he said to me in the middle "Colleen can you stop moving around for just one minute?".  So, which type of cat food would be best for my new adopted lifestyle?
