    Hello everyone.
    My name is Elis, pleased to meet you all ;)
    I came here to ask a lil help from my fellow cat lovers and any help is more than welcome.

    So.. I always had cats (rescues) my whole life when I’ve lived in Brazil.
    Now it’s been 6 years that I am here and will be collecting my first kitten after all this time and I could use some help.
    I’ve been researching a lot and my biggest doubt haven’t been cleared up yet:
    What’s the best food to feed my kitten?
    Mine is a BSH, 10 weeks old and the breeder feeds her Royal Canin.
    But now I have been reading and also watching “Jackson Galaxy” on YT that says a big NO to dry food.
    What’s the problem with dry food (grain free ones for example) and if raw food is the best route where to find a good one? Any particular brands?
    Thank you!!

    Elis

    Hi Elis, welcome to the forum.

    The problem with dry foods is that cats need to get their moisture from food as they are not big drinkers.

    A few people feed raw on here, but none of mine will touch it. I feed good quality wet food, online places such as Zooplus have a good selection.

    Something like Bozita, Applaws, Animonda Carny or Cosma.

    I think there is a thread somewhere that gives nutritional values. But if you search the forum, there's loads of info about foods.

    Thank you MilleD :)

    As I said I have been reading a lot about it but there’s a lot of info out there and it gets confusing.
    So I think I came to the right place.

    Thank you for the brands you mentioned.. I read very good things about Applaws and also James Wellbeloved.

    What do you think of this last one I have mentioned?

    Thank you again
