Food of Breeders' Choice...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
On the health and wellness board, I've asked cat owners what brand of food they feed their cat(s) and why. I pose to you, the breeders, the same question. As breeders, I hope that your answers are very specific; I'd like to know what brand(s) you feed your cats (kittens and adults), which formulas (dry/ canned) and why.

Thank you,

We have always fed Science Diet to all the cats in the house. We tried a few other brands such as Iams,Nutro,and Pro Plan. Science diet seems to be the only food everyone's stomachs agree with.
The Adults eat the adult mixed with the light, and our kittens and moms eat the kitten formula. We only feed the dry food, we have had too many bad experiences with the wet. The kittens nurse on mom until they are 3 months old, so it's never been a concern with water intake or nutrition.

Hi there. I use Royal Canin dry food for all my cats (persians). The start on the Babycat, ground up and mixed with water if necessary, then onto the Kitten 34. After that, they have a choice of the Persian 30 or Fit 32. I have had no problems. I include lean beef mince and chicken mince in my cats' diet as well.

I use Authority kitten food for my kitties because it is the only one that agrees with Rocky's tummy..Fluffy will eat just about anything though...the other day I was getting my DEli cat food out for the strays I feed, and had the lid open and she just hopped right in and started chowing down on it...silly girl..

WELLNESS, just read the ingrediants. I give the kittens and mom kitten food and they all get wet food once a day. I highly suggest wellness.

I've recently read the ingredients of Wellness and am quite impressed. I just feel that if I ever have more than one cat, I won't be able to afford it. Even with one cat, Wellness will put a dent in the finances. But I will consider it.

Thank you,
