I was just reading a post that someone put related to their kitty and kidney disease. In 1999 I had a kitty diagnosed with CRF...kidney disease and 2 years later I had to put her to sleep. In November of this year I felt able to get another kitty. I have read lots and lots about foods for kitties...and which ones are better and have less ash (I knew all this stuff when I had to read labels trying to find good food for my sick kitty)
Anyway, what do you guys feed your cats??? Right now we use Purina One...the hairball formula.
I am just so scared that I am going to give my cat the wrong cat food.
Thanks in advance for your comments :-)

I feed my kittens Felidae, it has no meat by products and it is human grade food. I like it cause it has no bad stuff in it. I use to feed Iams and once I switched their coats looked better and they were more active and they ate all there food. I feed dry and wet and i even switched my dog to Canidae because i really liked the results with the Felidae.Hope this is helpful.

I've been looking into this as well. There are a couple of links that talk about "premium" cat foods.

Dry Food: http://cats.about.com/cs/nutrition/tp/premdrycatfood.htm

Wet Food: http://cats.about.com/cs/catfood/tp/tpcannedadult.htm

All of these are supposed to contain no by-products and some advertise low ash.
There's also ChickenSoup for the cat lovers soul. This is one that advertises low ash.

Hello. Handsome gets Wellness soft food and Newman's Own hard food. I plan on switching over to Newman's Own soft food once they have it in the store. Unless of course he doesn't like it, in which case I will stick to what he's eating right now.

This is a link to Wellness cat food: http://www.oldmotherhubbard.com/

Here is a link to Newman's own cat food: http://www.newmansownorganics.com/pet/what/

From what I have read it seems that a cat that has plenty of water in it's system is less likely to develope kidney problems (meaning soft food is good combined with hard food as it contains lot's of water).

Mine are currently on Chicken Soup dry food. Innova is my favorite dry food for them but I like to rotate brands between using it. For canned food I use a variety of brands.

I made a little table with all of the foods that I have tried. Does anyone know how to insert a table?

Fleafly: Sorry, I have no idea. What did you use to make the table, Excel or something? You may be able to post it if it's on a website or maybe you can at least post a link to it.

I used word actually. When you copy and paste it it jumbles everything up. I might have to rearrange it, but it is a lot easier to read in the table format.....

Hello Fleafly. Can you transfer the table to your e-mail and then copy and paste it from there?
