I have a mild form of celiac disease (allergy to wheat and grains) so believe it or not I know what my kitties are going through!
Sharkey is right about Oatmeal, but it is mild enough that many humans with grain allergies can eat it. I guess I am identifying to closely with my kitties. I just want them to eat what is natural for them, but the closest PetSmart has is the Authority and I had to grab something.
I went to the local pet store today looking for Natural Balance grain free formula for cats with allergies (Peas and Duck). The lady working there didn't have the slightest idea what I was talking about. I told her "Do you think wheat flour is natural for a cat to eat?"
I am going to try and get a sample of Natural Balance from the company. I may have to buy the stuff online.
Oh, I just cleaned the cat box. The litter for both cats for one day was under 1 qt. Lately, on Blue it's been 2 qts. The cats were drinking a lot of water when they had the runs. I have them on 50% Blue and 50% Authority and no runny poops! One of my kitties has been spitting out the Blue and eating only the Authority. I always find the nuggets in the same place. Blue is to rich, and expensive. Sometimes to much of a good thing is not a good thing. ~~~Lia
