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! :)

"cats and dogs have been doing just fine on corn for years, so why mess with it?" (essentially) But really have they? Different studies seem to show different things so who knows.
Go watch the movie "Food Inc." and you will see why corn is in pretty much everything (not just pet food )

I will warn you tho it could very well change how you view the food You eat as well as your pets. (It did for me) As the saying goes for some, Ignorance is bliss..

The idea of food that is human consuption worthy is a fairly new idea for the masses. So when they have (and have had) the ability to make really good stuff, they will make you pay for it. :twisted: Just like people food. The cheaper, crappy stuff is what you start buying when you run out of paycheck. It's a matter of time and we'll be all dining on Solent Green! ;)

Is one of the main reasons 70% of the US population these days is obese, it is easier (and cheaper) to eat unhealthy than it is to cook and eat well balanced meals... ie fastfood for a couple bucks in 5 min VS shopping and cooking for an hour+ at 5 times the price
