I have been feeding my cat California Naturals Chicken and Brown Rice dry food. I am a fan of this product as it’s list of ingredients is minimal and does not contain a lot of fruits, vegetables or fillers. It is a good protein source.
I have just found out that this product will no longer be carried in Canada.
Have been doing much research on a replacement food and am not able to narrow down a new dry cat food that is mostly meat based and not loaded with a lot of unnecessary extras…

Grains are not a natural part of the feline evolutionary diet. Historically, cats were used to guard grainaries because they would catch mice and not eat the grain. Only in the last 50 years, with the development of the commercial pet food industry, have grains been added to cat and dog foods. Many of these grains used are waste products from large agricultural production facilities.
Many cats are allergic to the grains in their commercial cat food. These allergies can often manifest as skin and digestive disorders. Grains are also a source of carbohydrates, which cats require very little of. The optimal feline diet is one that provides high protein and low carbohydrates. Mother Nature, in her infinite wisdom, designed felines to use protein as their main energy source, rather than carbohydrates. Unfortunately, foods on the market that say they provide 'high energy', typically do so by using a grain source. Carbohydrates are a quick source of energy and are burned away very quickly. They are also the cheap and unhealthy solution to providing a dietary energy source. In fact, one of our own cats was highly allergic to grains, and that was what led us to start this company.

Protein, from a meat source, provides sustained energy and is burned completely and efficiently. Yes, foods containing mostly meat are more expensive, but the longer life expectancy, health benefits and lower vet bills outweigh those costs. High carbohydrates in feline (and canine) diets are also major contributors to obesity in pets. Cats on high protein, low carbohydrate diets tend to lose excess pounds and maintain a healthy weight, with increased energy and vitality. Starches in high carbohydrate diets tend to bond to teeth, creating tartar build-up, which leads to gum disease, bad breath, and other health problems that are associated with chronic gingivitis. Cat's dietary needs are very different from humans and from dogs, who are omnivores. Cat's digestive systems are very short and they need to eat foods that are easily digestible. Raw diets are the most digestible for cats due to the high enzyme content naturally present in raw meat.Diamond Naturals Indoor Cat Chicken & Rice Formula is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for maintenance.Wysong develops state of the art, nutraceutically enhanced healthy dog food, natural cat food, ferret food, horse supplements and pet supplements with a view to long term prevention and staving off the long-latency diseases pets often fall victim to.
