I have found this forum incredibly useful for bringing me up to speed with cat nutrition as I had held rather outdated views....... however I have driven myself nearly demented trying to work out the best diet for my kitties. Is the main argument against dry food the fact that a) has grains and other fillers and b) fluid intake can be a problem? One of my kitties is very fussy and unless I mash chicken, tuna or prawns into her pouch food she won't eat it. I don't want to have to continue doing this. She does however happily free feed on James wellbeloved dry food. I have done as much research as I can into the cat food that is available locally (am reluctant to do a big zooplus order and then discover that she won't eat it) and whilst they may not have fillers, most seem to contain sugars & other things I really do not want to feed my cat. They do also seem to contain a lot of water so hardly VFM? My kittens are drinking well - watched one this morning drink from their bowl, the dog's bowl & the water fountain. They are also still having cimicat. If not JB, is there another dry food that would be better (and is reasonably easy to get hold of), and could I mostly feed this with the occasional pouch/raw food?
