Has anyone tried the Purina One Natural Blends cat food yet? I think it is fairly new to the market.

the orange are ones I would try to avoid the yellow is my personal preference
1. More grain than chicken. Chicken is the #1 ingredient but that doesn't mean anything because whole chicken is mostly water. In terms of dry weight, there is more grain than meat. well written
2. Corn gluten meal. This is processed corn that's being used as a protein source. Corn is an inappropriate protein source for a carnivore. I will use a formula with it but dont like it being the main source of protein as the chn should be fifth or sixth due to water and fat loss of cooking..
3. Poultry by-products. Unidentified random parts of birds that aren't even identified by species - yuck.
4. Animal fat. What animal did it come from?
