Thanks guys!

We've decided to just use a 50 - 50 mix of Arden Grande and Wainwright's weight control since that adds up to 31% protein and 10.5% fat- The fat is lower than we'd like especially while he's still growing but I figure we can quite easily get it up by allowing him a couple more fatty bugs!! 😆 We'd rather not include an indoor food if it wouldn't help the smell and figure we can always try him with an indoor cat food later down the line if the smell does become an issue.

Fingers crossed this is an okay choice! 😨 Please please let me know if it isn't.

Yea both those foods are fine. You could always change the ratio to have more of the fatty one to bring the fat up higher. Or just keep them on what the breeder has longer, depending how you feel about the food anyway, because you need to leave them on the same food for at least a week while they settle in the new home. Or as your changing it, if okay with the highest fat of that food and it bring the fat up of what you have already to a better feet keeping it at a good protein then you could leave that one in while he/she is still young and then take it out if you wanted later down the line when he/she is older and you want to use less fat again.

Our favourite part of his current mix is Applaws Complete Natural Dry Cat Food Kitten Chicken which would bring our total values up to 33.3% protein and 13.7% fats so keeping one of his current mix in wouldn't actually be too bad of an idea for the time being, thanks Ria!
