Cheap food = eat more = cost more
Good = eat less = cost less
It basically evens out. You feed them crap food with corn and by-products (the stuff they scrape off the floor) and they will eat more to get their nutrition (what of it there is). You feed them the good stuff, they will eat alot less and poop alot less and the box will not smell as bad.
I wouldn't feed a stray/feral kitty that "Special Kitty" crap!
Definition: Meat By-Products are parts of slaughtered animals, not including meat (please note: no muscle meat included). Included are lungs, spleen, kidneys, brain, liver, blood, bone, partially defatted low-temperature fatty tissue, and stomach and intestines freed of their contents.
What AAFCO doesn't mention is that meat byproducts may also legally contain: "4D animals (dead, dying, diseased, down), road kill, euthanized cats and dogs, including their collars. These source products are rendered, the fat is siphoned off to be used as "animal fat," and the remaining material is extruded to form "meat by-product meal."
"Meat," by definition, is limited to the meats of cows, swine, sheep, and goats."
