|We all get Friskies and Fancy Feast; Meowma thinks most of the horror stories and hype are just that, and based on marketing that makes people automatically think "big company = bad, company claiming to be small, holistic, etc=good" so if it's Purina, P&G etc it must be 'bad'.
We do get some raw Blue Ridge Beef, mostly because if someone gets one of our kittens and the buyer is all hung up on raw we want the kitten used to it. Quite a few of the older kitties don't touch the raw however and Meowma cannot see any difference at all in the 2 groups. In particular my brother Bodrouex is doing extremely well at the cat shows, and the judges always remark on how wonderful his coat and condition are; Boodles won't touch raw food and actually strongly prefers the gravy type fancy Feast, so he mostly gets that.
Of the 14 adult cats here, not a one has any food allergies, IBD, skin problems, obesity or other food caused illness, we would challenge anyone to pick us out of a lineup of raw/holistic/whatever-fed cats.
We DO think there are foods that are not healthy out there, or contain a lot of unecessary ingredients, or make cats prone to obesity if overfed, but don't count FF or Friskies among them. It's probabl;y not harmful, but Meowma wonders more about the apples, carrots, blueberries, sweet potatoes etc in some of the high priced foods.
