Good Cat Food
A couple of years ago, Ringo tipped the scales at 20 pounds. We feared bringing him to the vet for his check-up because we know we would get lectured at how obese our cat is... He was 9 at that time. He was really cute but it was difficult (not to laugh) watching him try to clean himself (because he couldn't reach his butt & everytime he tries, he just rolls over like a ball). Suffice it to say, I had some baby wipes ready, just in case... He LOVES food and there's nothing that he won't eat--he even loves begging for bread. Then we switched to this dry cat food. Even before the melamine-contaminated-petfood-from China-fiasco, husband & I have chosen to pay more for healthier pet food. Husband saw this from a farm's website, http://www.springfarmcares.org/ and we are very satisfied. A 9 pound bag costs around $25.49 but it lasts almost 2 1/2 months. We have two 11 y/o indoor cats. Though we give them wet food (1/4 portion of a 3 oz can--they don't really finish the whole can so instead of wasting it, I give them smaller portions) at breakfast (just so that they don't feel left-out that the dogs are having a big meal). Anyway, we are happy with this brand, cats look & act healthy (as verified by their vet), we have the peace of mind, and a bag goes a long way. And oh, Ringo is now in a much better shape at 18 pounds.
