Mom & I have done a lot of research on cat foods, so we thought we'd share some resources that were helpful to us. (She did the research and I did the taste testing MOL!)

Also the book Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats is helpful reading if you want even more information.

Unfortunately like many things, pet food is somewhat "buyer beware." If you've never looked into pet food ingredients, there's a lot that you don't know. Don't feel bad for not knowing - mom didn't know all this stuff either. It wasn't until she started reading that she found out exactly what makes up a good quality pet food.

We could go on & on about this stuff but I need a catnap so that's all I'll say for now. ;) The most important thing is to start reading on this stuff. It will really open your eyes!

Gotta fo nap!
Purrs,
Julius

This is one of my mom's favorite subjects. She got very interested in feline nutrition and health when I became diabetic. A healthier diet has been part of what has helped me go into remission from diabetes. Catinfo,org is a pawsome site, one of our faves. Thanks for posting. It's an important topic.

Healthy purrs,
Gump

It is our Moms favorite subject too, she started looking into pet food about 10 years ago...we feel it is important to know what you are feeding pets....Mom says the more you know the better off you will be.

We got food to help our Angel Tallulah with her urinary infections, with better food and holistic remedy she never got those infections.

We have read Dr. Pitcairn's book and many others and we also like the catinfo....

thank you again for sharing this hopefully more will to research on pet foods.
