|I have saved many cats, and I won't post it in here but in my opinion, raw all the way! I currently only have my kitten on raw, currently have 3 cats. Merida was a stray I saved, she couldn't walk, was severely dehydrated, she was a mess! I had her on canned food, ended up switching to raw, and then back to canned, and back to raw. I have her progress on video and you can see the difference in her eyes, skin, and coat, and even the fact she was walking on the raw diet, yet when I switched to canned she couldn't walk. Switched back to raw, and she was walking again, repeat this. She couldn't be healthier now. One of my others has dandruff, and feline acne, and just a whack of problems no matter what diet I have her on that is commercial dry or canned. It's terrible.
In the case of a kidney cat, which Natalie may or may not be, could be a few things with her symptoms, there is a recomended kidney cat diet for raw actually. I had a kidney cat, never had him on a raw diet, but used herbs to help him instead. I believe the prev poster gave that website info. My cat was on a powder from the vet to help his phosphorus and calcium levels balance. Personally, i think with that powder and a raw diet a kidney cat would do better than on a commercial store bought diet (or even vet prescription)
Here is a link to help you understand kidney failure bloodwork. Maybe that will help you as an owner decide what you think is best for your girl.
