Hello! I'm planning on changing my 3month old hedgehog's cat food from Friskies Indoor Delights (30% Crude Protein, 9% Crude Fat). However, the person I got her from did not mention that it contained corn and other ingredients that seems to be bad for hedgehogs, so I decided to change her food soon. The problem is the available cat food near me mostly contains corn and other fillers (e.g. Royal Canin, Whiskas, etc.), and those recommended here are not available from where I'm from.

I was wondering if Nurture Pro Nourish Life Cat Food (Chicken Formula for Mature Cat 7+) is a good brand for my hedgehog. Here are its ingredients and guaranteed analysis:

De-boned Chicken, Chicken Meal, Pure Pearled Barley, Steamed Oat, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Menhaden Fish Meal, Brewers Dried Yeast, Dried Beet Pulp, Menhaden Fish Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Flaxseed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Garbanzo Beans, Cranberries, Blueberries, Tomatoes, Carrots, Kelp, Alfalfa, Chia Seed, Taurine, Parsley Leaf, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Chamomile, Cinnamon, Rosemary Extract, Ginkgo, Dandelion Root, Marigold Flower, Turmeric, Burdock Root, Lavender Flower, Angelica Root, L-Lysine, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Lecithin, Choline Chloride.
