I have to admit that before I adopted Marcie in Sept, I had been a dog person all of my life. My only other kitty had been when I was a kid, so I wasn't really in charge of what to feed her. When I adopted Marcie, she was about 5mos old and she was being fed Iams. That food smelled so bad that I had to find something else immediately. I picked meow mix indoor formula. I compared the label with a comparable bag of Iams and found them to be very similar. After feeding Marcie Meow mix for a couple of months, I have noticed several things: she is hungry all the time but if I feed her more than 1/2 cup 2x per day, then she puts on a ton of weight. Also, she really hasn't been particularly healthy. I kind of put that up to her being from the Humane society. She is an indoor kitty, she gets no treats (human or kitty) and she is about 8mos old. Could I improve what I am feeding her with a reasonably priced, easy to find food? Also, I can't stand the smell of most canned wet foods, so I don't think that is an option. I have seen mention of pouches and am curious about those though...
