Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


Which one???

I've been feeding my 3 cats 2 (5.5 oz) cans of Friskies wet and 1 cup of Solid Gold's dry Indigo Moon or Blue Buffalo's Wilderness (rotation) each day. Would it be more beneficial to feed a higher quality wet and a lower quality dry? I was thinking about doing 2 (5.5 oz) cans of Natures Variety Rabbit Formula or Duck Formula (rotation)... and a cup of Iams dry? :-k :?

    From the research I have done they would probably do better on an all canned food diet if you can swing it. If not I would keep the higher quality dry if you have to have dry as it will be better than lower quality dry IMHO. We are still learning about the whole canned food/good food thing. But I have also heard that the 'cheapest' quality canned food is better for the cats than the highest quality dry food because of the moisture content.

    Hi Bagheera. If you cannot do an all canned diet, then it would probably be better to go with a high quality dry and a lesser quality canned. None of the lower quality kibble is grain free, but there are higher quality ones that are, such as EVO and NV Instincts. On the other hand, there are cheaper canned foods that are grain free.
