The Best Food for Your Cat: My Recommendations - The Conscious Cat
My cats were on Blue Buffalo since I wanted them on holistic food. The vet said that indoor cats can get fat on that and suggested I switch to Science Diet Light. Well, I just read that is on the worst cat food list for 2016, that it contains wheat gluten, corn & other garbage. I saw list of the best foods and chose Welness Core since I saw that brand in the store. Do you think I’m making a wise decision to switch them? They do get half a can of a small can of wet food daily and seem to be good drinkers. Feels like I’m making a wrong decision no matter what I choose. Which is best?
There's little agreement about which brand of cat food is truly the best, and no single manufactured food offers perfect nutrition
I’m really glad that I noticed your post. I have a new kitten & after much reading about which are the best foods for her, I had chosen Tiki Cat as one of my three favorites. What a disappointment to hear this news. And I just read of their merger/selling out, which ever it is, with another company. It seems that when these merger business decisions take place it results in a decline in the quality of their food; other companies which had good reputations have also done the same thing the past year or two; with customer complaints galore. Too bad, it’s our pets that will suffer, and we have to prevent that by not buying these lower quality foods. What a shame.

So how do you know which is best for your cat?Asking a vet to declare which cat food type is best – canned cat food or dry cat food – treads controversial watersChoosing the best cat food is a difficult task
Which is the best cat food for your cat? My picks for the top cat foods for 2017 are chosen for their high quality ingredients and their approximation to a cat's natural diet in the wild - mainly the kinds of foods cats hunt. No rats or rabbits, but protein-rich meat, foul, and fish. These foods contain the same high grade protein that is sold for human consumption - no fillers or by-products. Older cats generally do well being fed twice a day but growing kittens need nutrients far more often. Vets suggest a "free feed" method with kittens which means having food available to them at all times. While this may seem like the short route to a fat cat it usually prevents digestive issues that come when kittens eat too fast. Of course, if you do have an obese kitten you will want to speak to your vet about the best feeding schedule to keep your kitten healthy. Unfortunately, carbohydrate information is not readily available on cat food packaging. The guaranteed analysis on most packaging contains very limited information, most of which is unhelpful to cat owners. Cat owners can contact pet food companies for more detailed information on the carbohydrate content of available diets. It is important to request the carbohydrates be expressed as a percent of metabolizable energy (percent ME). This gives you the actual percent of calories coming from carbohydrates. It is best to select a food with less than 10 percent of calories (10 percent ME) coming from carbohydrates.The first step to identifying the best cat food is to familiarize yourself with the products' ingredients. Keep in mind items are organized according to weight, PetMD points out, with the heaviest appearing first. You typically see the main meat product listed first or second because it has the highest weight (which includes water content).I’m really glad that I noticed your post.

Every review listed here is rated 5 stars. I haven’t taken into account the cost of these foods which is normally a case of “you get what you pay for”, but don’t worry as some of the cat foods in the list are GREAT value for money.
