Baby Food?

I have an inflamed bladder (thank God it's not a tumor like my vet thought at first). I've always eaten dry food and absolutely refuse to even consider any kind of canned food. I know this because my mopther has bought every single brand of canned food on the planet and I just sniff and wlk away. The only wet food I will eat is baby food (with NO onions). My mom is still giving me the dry food but also giving me chicken or beef baby food with Cosaquin mixed in to get a little more moisture into my diet. She's also making sure I get plenty of water. Does anyone think baby food is bad for the long term?

    Nope. We love baby food and it is good for you. Just make sure you don't eat too much or you'll get fatty!

    Make sure it is the Stage One baby food. Give supplements for vitamins.

    Are you eating any kind of cat food at all? Straight baby food doesn't have all the nutrients a cat needs. It's OK for a treat and some kibble is OK for bladder infections.

    I got baby food when I was sick too. Mummy would even puree canned kitty food and mix it into the baby food so that I would get all my vitamins (I couldn't eat dry food). Just keep an eye on vitamins and nutriants and all is good. (btw butternut squash is really really yummy!)
