hi, i wanted to let people with allergic cats to be on the lookout for ingredients called 'lecithin' and 'carrageenan'. i didn't know what either of these were, but after some research today i found out that lecithin can be derived from soy, and can cause reactions (especially if your cat is allergic to soy like mine!). carrageenan is an algae/seaweed extract that can also sometimes cause reactions in allergic animals/humans (my ashley is allergic to kelp, so i'm thinking she might be allergic to this as well.) if anyone else knows of other weird sounding names for possible allergens in cat food, i would really appreciate it if you could let me know. thanks!
