I recently adopted my new little boy Oakley, and I can tell already he is going to be a runner. See video in my other post viewtopic.php?f=17&t=5415 :lol:
I was just wondering what some suitable higher fat foods are that people on here feed their runners to keep weight on? He's 359g right now, but he's a pretty skinny little guy and I thought it might be a good idea if I introduced at least one higher fat food over the next few months during my "food introduction process." I've got quite a few foods in my mix so it might take a while lol.

My other two aren't runners at all, in fact I cut a few of my higher fat foods out because they kept gaining weight. I currently feed my other girls an equal mix of:

CSFTCLS - 9% fat
Natural Balance GP&D - 12%
Natural Balance Calorie Control - 9%
Blue Spa Weight Control - 9%
Wellness Healthy Weight - 8%
Blue Longevity Mature - 8%
By Nature Organics - 12%
8in1 Ultra Hedgehog Food (Junk Food) - 8%

Although Chloe's dropped some weight, so I might add a few more 12%'s back into the mix. Mind you really these are all minimums, so they might be getting more fat than I think, I just don't want Oakley to be underweight on this mix.

Any food suggestions??

Before Grain Cat Formula (can be bought in small 1lb bags for around $3 at specialty pet shops) is a great one with 35% protein and 18% fat. Inky never leaves a kibble behind and I really like that it comes in a small inexpensive bag.

I have one guy, Auby, who I have a terrible time keeping weight on. What i do is feed him the same mix as everyone else, BUT I add some Royal Canine BabyCat 34 to his bowl, just a bit, and that seems to work.

Sounds great, hopefully I can find it here in Canada!

That's a good idea too, he's still pretty young too so the babycat might not be a bad idea anyways.
