So, I'm on my lunch break now and my plan after I get off work at 6:00 is to go to a store called Pet People and buy a bag of Innova or Evo. My plan is to feed my cats canned food twice a day with a little dry food at night. I'm wondering if I should start my cats on Innova first and then after a couple of months then switch to Evo to get my cats used to the Natura ingredients, because I've read that some cats can't handle Evo. I was worried about the calories but considering small portions along with a predominantly wet food diet should not make my cats gain weight, they should lose weight. They're both somewhat overweight. As for my Iams multi-cat after I transition my cats the Iams multi-cat will go either to my neighbor or the trash can since there is no bus to take me directly to a shelter. I'm on public transportation. I simply cannot wait 3 or 4 months to switch my cats to a healthier diet. I'm eager to start today. I've been reading Dr Pitcairn's natural pet health book just for reference. I'm not going raw but I can certainly switch to a healthier pet food. I'm now convinced the rumors on the internet about by-products are at least somewhat true. I read about it in a book from people who have seen it with their own eyes. That's what I needed to be convinced. So Innova or Evo to start with? Innova is rich enough but I know the Evo diet has 612 calories per cup but maybe the low carb nature of it along with canned food could alter my cats metabolism. Also my cats get freeze dried meat treats so if I'm feeding a food with 50% protein like Evo has along with the treats could I be feeding too much protein? Is it possible to feed a cat too much protein? If that's the case maybe I'll go with regular Innova until the freeze dried meat treats are used up. Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions? I will check this forum again on my last break of the day here at work, at 3:30.
