Cat Faeries is so pleased to introduce you and your cats to these Organic Pet Superfood supplements from Bixbi. When an elderly dog friend made huge strides in his health we knew we had to check it out to see how these four superfood supplements might benefit cats. And boy do they!
Each ingredient is organically grown or produced, and just as impressive: they are all sourced or grown in the US! You know us, we are against ingredients from China and similar countries.
Choose your formula or formulas and simply add the powder to your cat’s food – dry crunchies, canned cat food, or homemade cat food. Now you can boost your cat’s health and vitality in an affordable and easy way.
Digestion – Packed with thousands of natural enzymes, antioxidants and immune-modulating compounds. This unique blend of powerful organic, US grown mushrooms contains naturally occurring B-vitamins to help convert food to energy for everyday activity and fighting disease. And DIGESTION improves digestive efficiency while combating gas, loose stools and bad breath. Give your cat’s diet the support it needs with DIGESTION in every meal.
Immunity – Potent antioxidants such as L-Ergothioneine, selenium and vitamins C & E prevent damage caused by stress, infection, pollution and aging. The polysaccharides in our unique blend of powerful organic mushrooms improve natural killer and T-helper cell activity, and work to balance the immune system. Give your furry friend its best defense by using IMMUNITY every day.
Joints – Packed with natural antioxidants, our unique medicinal mushroom formula fights free radical cell damage caused by age, exercise and stress. It aids circulation, eliminates toxins and fights inflammation at the source. And JOINTS is made with NEM® (Natural Eggshell Membrane) — clinically proven to reduce joint and soft tissue pain. Keep your cat/dog moving with JOINTS.
Skin and Coat – Whole food antioxidants and B-vitamins provide key nutrition while nourishing the skin and reducing free radical damage at the cellular level. SKIN+COAT’s unique organic mushroom formula also contains natural immune modulators which balance overactive antibody responses — the cause of itchy skin, rashes and excessive shedding in pets with allergies. With SKIN+COAT, your cat (or dog) will look and feel the very best.
More detail about the benefits of each formula and the ideal serving size can be found on the Healthy Cats page on our website.
These recalls for salmonella from Proctor & Gamble brands of cat and dog food seem to occur every few months and we are sick of it.

Carrageenan is a common thickener and emulsifier used in industry to improve the texture of ice cream, yogurt, cottage cheese, soy milk and other processed foods. It also is in many canned cat foods.
This all too common food additive is extracted from a red seaweed, Chondrus crispus, which is popularly known as Irish moss. Carrageenan, which has no nutritional value.
This is what our trusted friend Susan Thixton has to say about with regards to cats and dogs in her Petsumer Report:
And for people, Andrew Weill, MD doesn’t like it either!
The recall by Natura because of salmonella contamination has now expanded to include all Natura dry cat and dog foods with a range of expiration dates. A shocking number of VERY popular dry cat/dog foods which are considered to be superior to others have salmonella. The brands: Evo, California Natural, Health Wise, Innova, and the weirdest one: Karma. It’s bad karma that these corporations are so careless with preparing cat/dog food.
