Charlie's breeder feeds it to her cats and they are in the top 10 in the nation (cat/kitten). Last year Charlie's brother was best kitten and 2nd best cat in the nation. I'll stick with RC
They do get boiled chicken too
RC Beauty and Fitness:
INGREDIENTS: Chicken meal, corn gluten meal, rice, corn, chicken fat (naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols, rosemary extract and citric acid), chicken, natural chicken flavor, pea fiber, rice hulls, beet pulp, etc...
Solely looking at the ingredients, there seems to be a lot of grains in RC which cats have no real need for. The fact that they distinguished between corn gluten meal and corn probably means that if you added the two together the corn ingredients would outweigh the chicken meal.
That said, you're definitely not the first to say that their cats thrive on RC. I actually seem to hear it quite often, so maybe there's something I'm missing. If it works that well, no harm in sticking with it!
