It's just... when you don't really know the owners/cats story.... how can you really judge them? I mean.. you just really don't know!
Absolutely, especially when you consider that every ad for pet food states that this
pet food [insert whatever brand you like right here] is the best possible food you can feed your cats. Unless you actually know what to look for (and what to look out for), you're likely to put your faith in the pet food companies. I don't think people are intentionally buying crappy food for their pets, but if an ad says that such-and-such food is nutritionally complete, healthy food for your pet and
it's well within your financial means, why wouldn't you buy it?
I wish there was as much of a push to help people understand the nutritional requirements of their pets -- and the nutritional information on pet food packaging -- as there is for human food. For the most part, though, unless you have an exotic pet, you're not going to research what kinds of foods are best for your pet, because it appears
that this information is already readily available.
