    It would all depend upon the age and if active or not. I use a vet brand that can only be bought from my vet. It also wasn't on the recall list when pets were dying, it doesn't use any of the ingredients that were part of the core!:D

    JW is better imho x

    I won't feed RC in this house anymore, i have found it causes coat and skin problems (in 4 of mine and totally unrelated cats/bloodlines)

    I feed JW and holistic biscuit ( but thats more expensive) and find it causes no problems xx

    RC & JWB both contain grains (wheat, corn or both) so they are not appropriate diets for a cat. Orijen does have a higher meat content but it is also high in carbohydrates (not from grains but from potato) so again it's not really an ideal diet for cats.

    A mainly wet food diet, or a raw diet, is preferable.

    RC gave one of mine skin problems as well, on the odd occasion I feed dry I use either the duck or lamb JWB kitten.

    Agree with Kozykats here; they're both equally inappropriate in terms of nutrition for a cat.

    If you HAVE to feed dry, Orijen or Applaws dry are the least inappropriate.

    If you can, try feeding wet instead. Cats really don't need dry food at all, it's just convenient for us humans.

    HiLife is a good wet food that's available from many grocery and pet shops. They come in pouches, 1 pouch = 1 meal.
