I have very exciting news! The CatCentric facebook group is continuing its new “Ask the Expert” feature with a second session hosted by the amazingly passionate and incredibly knowledgeable Rodney Habib. And it’s only a week away! (CORRECTION: It’s two weeks away!)
Rodney is an award winning pet nutrition blogger, radio show host, and magazine writer, and is currently filming a TV series on pet obesity for Animal Planet. He is one of the leading experts on commercial pet foods, traveling all over the world meeting top veterinarians, pet nutrition experts and pet food manufacturers, and loves to share his knowledge with pet parents. His mission – to change the way people feed their pets. His motto, “Be the change you want to see in the world!”
Few have such an intimate and expansive understanding of manufactured pet foods and fewer still would be willing to donate their time to sharing that knowledge freely with cat owners. We are extremely pleased and excited that Rodney has agreed to host this session, and look forward to an engaging, informative, and fun-packed discussion. If you’re at all interested in what goes into your cats’ foods and how they’re manufactured, you don’t want to miss this!

Description: Get your commercial cat food questions answered. For instance: What is the make-up of those meaty-looking chunks in canned food? Which ingredients should we look for and which should we avoid? Why do so many recommend against feeding kibble to cats? And most important of all, “What IS the best food to feed our cats?”
Time: 6 April, 8:00 am, through 10 April, 5:00 pm (EDT).
