|I am looking for some websites, experiences, and "proof" that canned cat food is better for my cats than hard kibble. My mom is the main one stopping me from switching our cats to an all canned food diet. I just want the best for our kitties, and so does my mom, but she just doesn't understand how much better canned food is over dry. I have been feeding our 3 cats 1 can of Friskies or Fancy Feast per day in the morning (and then they eat dry Solid Gold Indigo Moon or Merrick's Before Grain the rest of the day). I know being on so many foods isn't helping, which is why I am trying to convince my mom to switch the cats to an all canned food diet.
My mom is kind of against canned cat food because from the time she was a kid, until my grandparents both died, they fed all their cats canned cat food, and they turned finicky and wouldn't eat anything but wet food. She hates the smell, but I don't mind it. Also, she thinks it's bad on their teeth, and is very expensive. Our new kitten does have a gas problem, but I think it's because we recently switched to Solid Gold hard food and it's too rich for him, or it could be due to having him on too many different foods?
Our cat, Greenlee, that recently passed away from Fatty Liver Syndrome at 3 years old, had urinary crystals and a bladder infection at one time. I know canned food helps with flushing out the urinary tract. But Greenlee was fed an all dry food diet because of, once again, my mom's issues with canned food.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or advice on what to say and how to convince my mom an all canned food diet is better than a dry food diet. Websites, personal experiences, ect, are GREATLY appreciated!
Also, I would love to hear some canned food options that your cats liked. I am in a search for an all life stages canned food within my budget price range.
