Newbie here! :D
I was looking at Naturals, with Vitamins and Minerals by Cat Chow. I normally don't use this for my cats, but was browsing what I can get them that works for our new hedgie, Puck also. It says the protien is 38% and the fat is at 13%. But chicken meal is the first ingredient.

There is also Iams Natural with Chicken, first ingredient is chicken, but the protien is at 33% and fat at 15%.
I have looked at the list posted, but I wan't sure if these would work also.

We just got Puck and he was being fed Iams Proactive Health with chicken, first ingredient is chicken, with 33% protien and 15 % fat. He seems fine on it, so I really don't know IF we should switch anything. Any input is welcome! Thanks! :)

All the foods listed on the hedgie list are GREAT for hedgies, but are actually BAD for cats.

Whereas, the foods I feed my cats and dogs (Science Diet, Hill's and Medical) are GREAT for cats and dogs, but totally NOT suited for hedgies.
Out of curiosity, why are they bad for cats? I don't know much about kitty nutrition...Since I've gotten Lily though, animal nutrition in general has become rather more interesting to me, particularly for ones that I have as pets.
