I don't know about the states, but in the UK all pet food must be safe for human consumption, on the basis that it is put down at floor level and toddlers could eat it, and can have tighter controls than some of the meats that go into meat pies! :geek: So on the plus side, kiticat beef on toast is r...

Re: nGen ?
