Hey kitties, I am a 13 year old hunk looking for some nutrition advice. My parents were feeding me Natural balance dry cat food (good for all ages) and their canned food too. After the first recall they switched me to canned Pet Promise - which I loved the first 2 days and now I just nibble and pick at. Now with this latest recall they want to switch me from the Natural balance dry food too - which I have enjoyed for years. Now, my questions are: does anyone else like pet promise wet/dry? Do you think this is a good brand for a senior kitty like myself? I am confused as to if I need a senior cat food plan and what I should be looking out for. I used to think high protein was bad for the kidneys and now I hear it is essential so that I don\'t lose muscle. What do you guys think?? Purrs in health, Friday

    Innova makes a great senior food. I don't know anything @ pet promise.

    We switched him to Pet Promise Dry Senior Cat food and he LOVES it. It seems easier to chew too. I will check out the brand you suggested for wet food b/c he really doesn\'t seem to like the PP wet food or the wellness we tried this morning. What a picky guy :)~ What is the new natural cat? Where do I find this? Purrs...

    Friday, The New Natural Cat is a book by Anitra Frazier. It's a guide to cat care and contains some great information about common illnesses, and I think it has a section on nutrition too. It has just about everything you need to know when you take care of a kitty companion. I bought my copy from for around 5 dollars. Very much worth it; a great book.
