Wish they all could go on wellness, I feel a little guilty.
Don't feel guilty.... you are doing the best you can, and the cats appreciate it. I think we all wish we could feed the best possible choices but in realty, most people cannot afford the price of Wellness or Orijen.
Personally, I feed a good dry food, Taste of the Wild plus a cheaper dry food that I mix in..(say 75% TOTW + 25% other) it helps extend the TOTW.plus some canned (not a great brand, but not the cheapest)... Kizzy does well on the mixture and I can afford vet appts if need be. (instead of spending all my money on the "best" foods, and not being able to afford to go to the vet for annuals, or if there's an emergency. I'd rather save the money from the food for that)
