|If you don't mind me asking, what brand of dry food do you feed, until it runs out? If its Purina One, please stop feeding it, can give you all the links. I also would stop feeding the dry, if it is giving the other kitty urinary issues, its not worth her health, since you can't afford to take her to the vet. I have a crystal kitty, I can tell you all about it.
The key to combating crystals and urinary issues, is to keep them flushed out. You do this by mixing the wet, with water, so its real real soupy, twice a day. I also have a kitty, that will not eat any wet, at all, period. We keep him flushed out by mixing 1 teaspoon Gerber baby food, chicken or turkey ONLY, with water, so its like a broth, twice a day.
My kitties are on Blue Wilderness, its grain free, a must for kitties that have crystal issues, as grains are one, of many, causes of crystals. It is expensive, but much less expensive, than running to the vet all the time. I too, tried the less expensive wet, Fancy Feast, they threw it up, and 2 ended up at the vet, $400 bill, I went back to Blue Wilderness.
Our hrs have been cut back, so I work 2 jobs, 6 days a week, and eat alot of oddles of noodles and mac & cheese, to feed mine a good quality food. So I do understand about finances, alot of us on here, are in the same boat. Best of luck.
