Is this good food for Layla??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I started Layla on a new brand, she was eating Science Diet dry food, but I began feeding her Nature's Recipe a few days ago. She seems to like it, but I want to make sure I get something that is good for her! This food is premium, no by-products, no beef or wheatno fillers and no preservatives. It does have corn though... It also has a lot of extra vitamins, like omega-3 and omega-6. She is my first cat that I take care of solely, so I would appreciate advice on this food!

I am not a fan of it as most have DIGEST in them and I feel that is a by product like ... if memory serves some also have cellulose ( the only thing I call a FILLER

It is better than SD IMHO but in the price class better are avail

So what is the best, most well-balanced food for cats?? I would really like something that will put a little weight on her because she is so little. The shelter says she was a year and three months when I got her, but I don't think that is right because she only weighs about 5lbs!
