|Freeze dried meat treats are good There are lots of brands out there
For the main diet, you'll find all your cat nutrition and feeding info at Catinfo.org The web site is owned by a vet who has an interest in proper cat nutrition.
In short, dry foood (all brands) are the absolute worse you can feed. It can cause all sorts of health problems later in life, from obesity to diabetes to urinary tract issues. That's something all the pet food companies don't tell you when they push their dry food products on tv, in magazines, free samples at the store, etc
A canned food diet and/or raw food diet is best. Both provide the water a cat needs in the diet. Cats are designed to get all their water directly from the food, not from a bowl.
Raw food is the most ideal since that is what wild cats eat in the wild. This can be a commericial brand of raw pet food or one that you make yourself using a good recipie, such as the one at Catinfo.org.
But if you can't feed or don't want to feed raw, canned food is a good subsitute Canned food may seem more expensive than a cheap giant bag of dry food but think of all the money you could be saving on future expensive vet bills. It's a "pay it now or later" thing.
