The Cat Chow Naturals has "powdered cellulose" in it though. The Purina One Natural Blends does not, but has by-products.

Per the Pro Plan website there are no by-products in Pro Plan Natural Selects. Or powdered cellulose for that matter.

My choice would be the Pro Plan.

Nova liked ProPlan, but I'm not sure how good of a food it is for the price.

Me off to look... what I saw in store had them... yeah cellulose is not a fave but

Price wise the naturals is still IMHO a bit better since the pro plan really has a grain as its primary after cooking ingredient and the naturals is meal vs the plain with water meat...

the pro plan if the price of say authority or max would be a solid choice

I had to mention it, just in case the OP's cats are sensitive to it. I have one cat that barfs anything with cellulose in it.

Yeah, it's pretty gross. I read up on that a while ago, when our vet wanted Stimpy on "diet" food and he kept throwing it up. A lot of kitty treats have cellulose now too, so I have to read labels pretty close. They even sneak it into a lot of canned foods. We don't do diet food anymore.

Whoa, I never knew "powdered cellulos" could be sawdust! Makes you really wonder if the people who make pet food even care what it does to them and how they manage to sell it. I wouldnt eat sawdust!

I saw the Purina naturals at the pet store and thought it looked ok content wise, compard to alot of grocery store brands. But, after learning so much about cat food on TCS, Kitty now eats Wellness. And SD wet food cause she is in love with it and won't let it go as I'm still slowly switching. Cats are way too smart about their food!

To clarify .. Cellulose by AFFCO definition is a non digestible plant fiber ... but unfortunately many manufacturer s use the "floor" sweeping s ie sawdust
