I ended up going with 4 different ones.

Ozzie's (Grumplequillskin's) Mix:
3 lbs Blue Buffalo Indoor Health
3.5 lbs Simply Nourish Turkey and Oatmeal
2.5 lbs Wellness Healthy Weight
6 lbs Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers Soul Light

I also have cats, so I bought the 18lb bag of Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers Soul, and I'm letting the cats have the 12 lbs I didn't use in the mix.

I took a pound of the food he was on and mixed it with a pound of the new mix I'm transitioning him to. Hopefully two pounds of food will give him enough time to transition.

If Ozzie's weight doesn't stay up enough on this, I'll mix in some Chicken Soup for the Cat Lovers Soul regular, since it has 20% on the fat content.

Sounds pretty good! Hope it works well, hopefully the Wellness doesn't cause any bad stool or anything. It's only about 15% of the mix you have so that's good.

That's what I'm hoping. I figured since it's so little of the mix, it's less likely. If it is a problem, I can tell what the pieces look like.

Every hog is different - yours may very well not have any tummy issues while eating Wellness. Just something that I like to tell people.

I am partial to Blue Buffalo. I've used a lot of different brands of cat food with my Milly, but Blue Buffalo has always been our favorite. Good ingredients, good percentages, and I just plain and simple like the company!

I was tempted to put several blue buffalo foods in my mix, lol. It is such a wonderful brand. I wanted to do a couple different brands for variety, so hopefully it works out. When I run out of this mix, I might change out the Wellness for a 2nd Blue Buffalo in the mix.
