|Okay, I have 2 cats, Jarod is fat & healthy, Amira has cancer & is down to 4 pounds. I began feeding them canned wet food to try & get Amira to gain weight. IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE to keep this up.
I've been buying Fancy Feast & it's not enough..to satisfy both of them, I would need to get a minimum of 4 cans a day! (2 for each). NOW I can't get them to touch dry food!
I bought Purina One Smart Blend....it looked like a better quality dry food with more protein & I can get it at the regular store with my groceries. I don't drive & it's difficult to get to a specialty store --BUT-- if I were to get a good quality food at a specialty store, 1) would they be satisfied with less than the Fancy Feast..since it theoretically would be better quality? 2) What should I do about them having opposite needs????
Now, I DID look around & saw this to be used as a supplement for Jarod that would help him lose weight: Fruitables Pumpkin Formula Weight Loss which can be found here: http://www.onlynaturalpet.com/products/Fruitables-Pumpkin-Formula-We ight-Loss/420017.aspx
I wondered if feeding him the 5 teaspoons of this along with a dry food would satisfy him and he wouldn't mind Amira getting more wet food than he gets.
I've just got a dilemma..should I keep trying to feed Amira wet food? (I have no idea how long she has..she's still active & eating.)
What's the best thing for me to do? And please don't recommend a Raw Food diet..I barely cook for myself..plus that's even more expensive. Thanks for any advice.
