|My oldest cat is 5 turning 6 and pretty fat, weighed in today at 16 lbs... my middle cat is about 3 and moderately overweight, and my youngest is a bit under a year and an ideal weight. I've been reading a lot and trying to learn more about feline health and diet lately, and I've read that dry food is not very good for cats and does not provide enough water content in their diet.
I've been free-feeding my cats dry food (I know that's one of the problems, I was actually going to start them on a feeding schedule tonight) and giving them canned food once a day. They have been on Taste of The Wild Dry food, and Performatrin canned food, which is the local Pet Store's food and is high quality (the fat cats have been geeting the weight control version of the canned food... lol). Should I be feeding an ALL canned food diet? If so, does anyone have food recommendations for the two fat cats? Food recommendations would also be greatly appreciated for the one that's at an ideal weight as well.
