We just got Oliver a couple days ago and he's a skinny thing. We want to fill him out to what he should be judging by his frame. Anyway, since he was a surprise emergency rescue (abandoned outside) and we had nothing that night I picked up some Whiska's wet food in the foil stand up pouch and President's Choice Finicky Cat in the same form. He loves them :)
As for dry food, the next day we went out and bought Friskies Stuffed Morsels. He eats them free fed. His treat are and always will be Temptations. Tomorrow or Wednesday I will also pick up chicken hearts for the taurine.
I am a believer in raw diets but I'm afraid I don;t have enough money or variation to keep at it for 20 years so I want to ease into that slowly. For now, what foods do you recommend? Is there a cat food analysis site I can check foods on? (theres a dog food analysis site). I fed my senior dog PC Nurtition First, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Holistic Blend and Lick your Chops last going off and I had great results. I want to take a more proactive measure this time and start right for my cat as I tried too late for my poor dog.
I hear EVO is good, Blue Buffalo, Wellness but are those priced fairly? and easy to get at? What wet food do you recommend?
All thoughts are appreciated :) This is my first kitty and I wanna do by him right!
I am also going to pick up enzymatic toothpaste next time I goes to PetSmart.. Do cats take it well? Is there flavours that some cats prefer?? And is there any preferred brands? Or is PetSmart brand or whatever's cheapest okay?
I am by no means made of money. I get by on part time work and a student loan so I cannot afford crazy expensive stuff, just good food for reasonable price :) Thanks!
