I learned something new a few months ago. The size of the kibble is important. I switched my kitties from Nutro Natural Choice Kitten to Nutro's Indoor Formula a few months ago. CC developed blood in his stool. When I saw it I rushed him to the vet and was surprised when she said it wasn't an emergency situation. He was having trouble with the food. The kibble for the Indoor Formula is almost twice as big as the kitten food.
I put them back on the kitten food until CC's stools looked normal again. Then I switched them to Life's Abundance (small kibble, premium quality). Last week their vet informed me that thay are overweight, so I'm going to gradually switch them to Felidae Platinum, which also has smaller kibble.
As far as wet food goes, CC won't touch it. I've tried every brand that doesn't have things like "animal digest" or "animal by products" (If they won't say what kind of animal it is then they are trying to hide something). AJ eats Spa Select.
The ferals that showed up are eating Nutro and Merrick canned with Natural Choice kitten (They will be TNR'd soon).
