Months ago I was surfing the net, ran across some descriptions of what goes into most catfoods. Talk about embarrassed :embarassed: , I guess that catfood manufacturers must be made of sterner stuff than I. The thing that will enhance most anything for cats & dogs (and thus that which you find almost everywhere), is "sprayed fat". Sprayed fat??? So I went to PetsMart, and asked an assistant manager for some advice on dry catfoor that _I_ could eat (as I wanted my two feline loves to be eating healthy). She had two recommendations: * Nutro (Natural Choice, Complete Care) --- I bought "Kitten", having one of those, and an older cat that I'd like to increase in weight. * Royal Canin (Feline Health Nutrition) --- I bought (growth) "KITTEN 34", for the above reasons. FWIW, Nutro's pretty bland, & Royal Canin tastes a little like sesame. I could exist on either for months, but sure wouldn't want to (the "boring" factor is quite high). And as I remember, prices for these were mid-range, they weren't the most expensive, but were more pricey than whatever was being pushed as "on-sale". My loves always have a bowl of a mixture of the two, seem quite healthy; when I gave them separate bowls so as to watch selection, they preferred one over the other for a time, then switched preferences (so these "health foods" must be similar in desirability). However, they still want a daily (or more if they can beg it) ration of Sheba (hey, I like a "daily ration" of chocolate candy bars, I can completely understand). P.S. I don't own stock in any companies mentioned, indeed I no longer own any stock whatsoever (but I have several indexed funds, spread the risk out, give me time to do other things than sweat over what any of them does). I'm not good enough at guessing when the worm turns, will have a lot more fun "losing" my money on target shooting than I will on the market (financially speaking, I live&die by the motto "Buy High Sell Low").
