|Read up on raw food diets Here are two excellent web sites with 100% balanced recipies:
There are basically 4 types of raw food diets: commerically available raw pet food diets you can buy at pet stores, homemade raw food such the recipies in the links above, semi-homemade raw food diets in which you buy raw meats and stuff at a butcher store or supermarket and add in a pre-mix like TC Feline that contains vitamins and minerals, and "frankenprey" which is a balanced diet of 80% raw meats 10% bone and 10% liver and the organs.
Once you figure out which type of raw food you want to do, we can help
Human buys Nature's Variety Instinct frozen raw for Leroy and Emma. It's what's easiest for Human to feed right now. It has useless fruits and veggies in it but overall it's a good raw food.
If you want to control the exact ingredients in your cat's diet, homemade raw food or semi-homemade raw food or frankenprey are the best way to go
There's nothing wrong with canned food It's still a healthier option than dry food You don't need to buy the high end expesnive $2+ brands either. There are lots of good quality brands of canned foods that cost less than that and are more easily available in pet stores. Some brands are only sold in non-chain pet stores / specialty pet stores while others are sold in big chain pet stores. Even Friskies is an acceptable brand to feed, though you do have to read the label to find the varieties that are grain-free and doesn't contain too many icky ingredients.
