Feed a combination of dry and wet every day to provide variety. Cats also enjoy a varied rotation diet. Cats are carnivores and need a meat based diet, high in protein and low in carbohydrates.
Read your labels and avoid the cheaper foods that contain unnamed meat sources such as meat meal or bone meal.
Also avoid food that contain by-products, artificial ingredients such as preservatives, colouring and fillers.

AMAZON PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

This is Buddy boy, who was freezing and skinny when he showed up in February 07.
The vet thought he was around 6 mos. old at that time. He sure has grown up! He seem’s to be getting tubby lately, but he is also on a healthy organic diet.
Buddy is the most easy going cat I have ever met. Anyone can approach him, pet him, pick him up and carry him around on your neck if you would like.
Extremely friendly and social, he hangs around with me and the dogs most of the time. Ususally wherever Lola is, Buddy is not too far behind.
He was scrappy and seemed to have battle wounds when he arrived here, but since I got him neutered has completely changed.
