I'm overwhelmed with dry cat food confusion. I tried my cat on the highest rated canned foods...
and she didn't have a bowel movement for four days. I thought she might need a dry food to supplement and help this issue, but between your ratings and Binky's chart re: carbs and phosphorous, I can't make a decision. So taking all of these specifics into account, what dry food do you recommend? (I didn't find a 10/10) Re: canned food, she only likes the Nature's Variety Lamb from the "top canned" you have provided. I did all sorts of mixing, etc. with the other brands to no avail. Thank you.
I use Blue Buffalo all natural cat food. Pricey, but my cats have more energy and seem to act better! `
I have found that adding a teaspoon of canned pumpkin OR a pinch of psyllium to my cats food really helps keep them regular.
I have 4 cats so I feed them twice a day and don't leave food out all day because the 2 greediest ones would eat it all!
When I add psyllium I just a pinch, add a little bit of warm water to it to get it to soften a bit, then add the dry or canned food to it. It just boosts up the fiber and helps keep things "going" smoothly! :-)
Also, as a "treat" a few times a week I give them about a teaspoon each of olive oil, which they love.
This is what works for me, and my cats are ok with it. But we all know how picky cats can be! What works for one may not work for another! Hope this will work for you, I understand your frustration!
