Which dry cat foods have the highest content of meat? I looked at many bags at PetsMart this week and the second ingredient is always corn or some other grain. Cats are not grainavores. I did pick up a bag of Purina. She gets a meaty canned food in the evening but I don't like leaving canned food out all day. She's a new cat that wandered in and very boney, starved, so I'd like to keep food in front of her as much as possible until she gains some weight. What dry food do you cat owners recommend?

Kelly,
Bless you for taking in this poor little cat. I keep Purina Pro 1 for my skinny little cat, who just does not seem too interested in any food. She gets canned every 12 hours, but rarely finishes it, so I keep dry out in case it will tempt her. As far as protein content, I don't think dry foods vary too much in this regard.
Kudos to you for recognizing that dry is not the way to go, for most purposes. Hope your new kitty fattens up soon.

I use only EVO http://www.evopet.com/products/default.asp?id=1500

Thank you. If canned is better I can feed her canned only. She seems to like the dry food also. I'm adding a 1/2 tsp of Essential Fatty Acids to her food and she gets a little fat free milk (all we use here) daily.

I'll look into this food. The name is familiar. Thanks for the recommendation.

Look for Wellness Core, I don't think that has any grains. If you can find a specialty pet store, they'll have more varieties.

Evo is also good, though my cat won't touch it.
For the record, my cat's a carbivore, I've been working for years to change that cattitude Emotion: smile

I think you hit on an important factor here they have to want to eat the food, esp. the skinny ones! Gracie gets what she wants because she tips the scale at 7.5 lbs and does not like many foods.

My 5 month old eats EVO and won't eat red meat but loves an uncooked chicken drumstick (brings out the little hunter in him LOL to watch). Likes fish and a tiny bit of Gorgonzola cheese, smellier the better. They really have disgusting olfaction desires..

Mine won't eat real meat in any form, but loves parmesan cheese.
