Orange bag, not yellow.  The product name is "nature's domain" but I think it's 
a Kirkland product.
I should look into the tax exempt thing.  Would be good to get out from under 
sales tax.  That would actually help a lot.  If not for the cats I would not 
bother with Costco.  We buy our own people food at a Grocery Outlet store, or 
at farmers mrkets and sometimes a regular grocery if it's on sale.  Just don't 
have much use for giant quantities of people food with only two humans in the

Subject: [Felvtalk] Kirkland Cat Food & Some Info On Tax Exemptions

I don't think I ever saw the yellow bag that Susan Hoffman mentioned.  They 
have a light blue bag of Reduced Calorie food (diet food) but I don't use that 
on skinny cats and the fat cats would probably eat the fatty food while the 
skinny ones would most likely head for the diet food.  Ding-bat cats.

You would probably need two memberships at Costco, one for cat food and 
cleaning products through a 501 c 3 tax exempt organization and your own 
private membership that you already have.  I pay about $18  year for my one 
third share of the membership.  I don't buy food there because I'm one person 
and can't afford to buy in quantity for myself.  But if you purchase cleaning 
products, paper towels, garbage bags, hand sanitizer, cat litter, flea 
treatment (they sell Frontline Plus and their own brand of flea treatment), 
anything you could list under caring for rescued cats, you can charge them 
under the non-profit heading. Costco also sells boxes of canned Friskies and 
canned Fancy Feast.  The price is comparable to PetsMart, maybe a penny or two 
less per can.  You have to buy a box of 24 for the Frikies.  I think it's 18 
cans for the Fancy Feast.  Way out of my league at this time though.  I usually 
purchase 9 Lives canned cat food and all
 cleaning products at HEB- Plus supermarket.  We are listed with the company as 
tax exempt.  I fill out a short form each time I make a purchase and don't have 
to pay the 8% sales tax. I do a separate order on my personal food and 
purchases. In the past I have also bought the round sherpa cat beds and litter 
boxes at the supermarket with the tax exemption. It definitely adds up.

Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors
