Why are there so many kinds of cat food? I can hardly decide which ones to eat. Maybe Science Diet, Nutro, Whiskas, Meow Mix?

There are a lot of cat foods, but not all of them are great. Be sure to read the first few ingredients because the list ingredients in order of how much is in the food. You don't want a lot of grains, meals, and fillers as the first ingredient. Look for chicken, beef, or fish as the first ingredient - Wellness, Natural Balance, and Buffalo Blue are a few good ones.

Congrats on being a diary pick today!

Good advice Samoa! You might also want to check the "track record" of the manufacture, recalls, consumer complaints, etc...As said not all foods are created equal!
Congrats on your DDP, hope you have a wonderful day and get lots of good treats.

Hi Trouble. I want to back up what Norman and Samoa are saying and let you know that NONE of the cat foods you listed are any good for you at all. Those brands are FULL of fillers, by products, grains, chemicals. All that stuff can make a kitty very, very unhealthy. Kitties are obligate carnivores and don't need grains in their diet at all. Grains are pure sugar and can cause diabetes, pancreatitis, obesity, liver problems, on and on. The ones that Samoa mentioned are definitely good ones and I also have a list of grain free foods that are out there on my website: http://ibdkitties.net/CommercialFood.html. We'd love to see you live a long, healthy and happy life. Feeding you a species appropriate food goes a long way in doing that! Concats on being picked a daily diary pick? Aren't you glad now?
