      Hi Tracey,

      Thanks for commenting and contributing to the conversation. Just to clarify, we’re not representatives of Special Kitty. If you want to make sure that your concerns are heard by the company, I recommend that you report your experience to both the FDA and the JM Smucker company.

      You can contact the JM Smucker company at the following phone number: 888-569-6767

      Thank you again for commenting. I hope your cats feel better soon!

      Best,

    I also have a ton (50-60) feral cats that I care for. Switched over because no other could be found at the time. ALL cats have the squirts and are throwing up. WILL NOT FEED ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS TO CATS EVER AGAIN.
