Favorite Kitten Foods...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I just adopted a runty barn kitten and I was wondering what everyone here feeds their cats. I'm a vet student very interested in Nutrition, but canine nutrition is barely covered, and feline nutrition barely mentioned...

I bought Purina Pro plan canned and Royal Canin baby cat for my recent addition. She was being fed Innova EVO at the farm (free food to vet students) but I don't think EVO is an appropriate diet for puppies, so I didn't figure it was a good choice for kittens either...

So how did I do? What do you feed your own cats?

EVO is actually FAR FAR better than pro plan and RC in ingrediants .. RC gets kudos for the before 4 month formula by me for size shape and ease of chewing ... Being a very rich food about 50% of cats dont handle EVO but we have LOTS of grain frees to choose from

Do a quick search on here and youll see VARING opinions of GOOD , GREAT and " the BEST ... NO one food works for all and so far NO cat food is perfect but

My basic criteria

NO animal by products( head ft intestines blood ) ( liver in a dry is not great but I will accept

I look for NO grd corn ( corn gluten is fine as it aids chn in Uti health ) if corn is present I like it not in the top 6 , no corn and corn gluten in the same formula

Low grains ... ie two meats max three grains/ grain like legumes / starches ... two meat one grain is ideal but not easy to find


NO artificial flavors or colors ( natural foods are varing shades of brown NOT green yellow red or purple

Prefer no wheat or soy ( not a big issue if not allergy prone)


My Zoey eats Natural choice and Orijen both dry

My dog eats wellness core dry and nutro canned and homemade

My favorite food for kittens is Ckn Soup for the Kitten Lover's Soul. I think it delivers good quality for the money but my babies stools are unbearable odor so I'm trying to get them back onto Wellness. I think Wellness is a good food but may be too rich...very upset tummies happened last time, so I'm going to go VERY slow this time. I also looked into EVO but I don't think my girls are big fans of turkey.
