|I have a crystal kitty. It is imperative, he be fed wet food only, and it be mixed with water, so its real soupy, twice a day. I almost lost him, because, I was "told" to feed him "that prescription diet", which the crystals came back. And when he was fed a grain free feed, he had bladder issues, his urine was too concentrated, and it burned his bladder walls. Little boy kitties are prone to crystals and bladder issues.
He gets wet, twice a day, he has to. The others get fed wet in the morn, mixed with water, and dry at night, only because I can't afford to feed wet twice a day. One will only eat dry, period. He is kept flushed out, by mixing baby food, with water, so its like a broth, twice a day.
I understand, if one cannot afford to feed wet, but there are other ways, to keep them flushed out. In my overly pickey opinion, if one is feeding dry only, and not finding a way to keep them flushed out, they may run into crystal and bladder issues, especially, with little boy kitties.
You want to mix the wet food, with water, so its real soupy, twice a day, or once a day, if you can only do that. Raw is not for everybody, I already know, there is no way in heckola, that one is going to eat it. And bringing in little mouseys, kittens will think they are toys, that move by theirselfs.
