I know that sounds funny.... but since switching my cats over to orijen and serengetti dry food and a healthy assortment of canned foods, I was hoping for less... "waste". I have had Cheetah on this food for her whole life (5 months) and Rasha has been on this diet for about a year. Their litter box after only a few hours of being gone is completly full when I come home. I have to switch out the entire litter box almost every day!! Not only do they have a lot of waste, but it smells really bad. I have a full bag of waste everyday, and it seems like it has doubled. I have been researching food for a long time and know that if they have a lot of waste coming out then it is not being utulized by the body. So.... should they be on some type of digestive enzyme? Is there a reason they aren't using all the nutrients?
To clear things up, they get Orijen and Serengetti dry as their base diet. Wellness, Innova and Evo, Felidae, Solid Gold, Evangers and a few other canned food. They split a can a day and I ususally add some water. Any suggestions? They look like they eat science diet with all the extra grains, and yet I spend more a month on cat food .... and LITTER then on myself!! And I buy the corn hulls litter so it's healthy..... which by the way costs just as much as the food! Help?? :?
