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.


Grain free low fat?

Are there any high protein dry foods (or grain free foods) that are low fat? (like EVO had reduced fat for dogs...) Thanks!

    I believe Wellness CORE is formulated to have a lower fat content. Otherwise I haven\'t heard of anything specific for cats. You\'d just have to compare formulas. Sorry I can\'t be of more help!

    Use the dry food chart. Innova EVO is grain free, 46% protein and 48% fat. Wellness CORE is grain-free, 47% protein and 42% fat. Nature's Variety Instinct Chicken is grain-free, 45% protein and 49% fat. There are foods with lower fat content but the protein content is also kind of low and carb content is very high.

    Ok, thanks guys! Right now Tigger is eating Hills M/D (canned only). It's the only high protein canned food that is also low-fat (only 130kcal/can). The only problem is he seems hungry all the time. I was hoping to find a high protein/low carb dry food (I don't like the M/D dry...I can stand the canned though) that I could have out so he could eat a little if he wanted. Hopefully EVO will come out w/ a cat reduced fat version! :)
