I'm not surprised Iams is one of the garbage brands.

I'm giving this thread a "bump" b/c I hadn't read it & was about to post a link to the article after seeing mention made on theanimalrescuesite.com. After all, my "Weasie" gets "garbage brand" foods fed to her on occasion for variety's sake. Folks should be aware of this regardless of how well thought of the product is.

I won't use Iams either. Isn't Science Diet or Hill (same company) just as bad? I don't know about Innovar, Evo or Eukanuba but I still think (since my cat didn't like Natural Balance) that Wellness has been the best/safest? I don't really know, as this is the 1st cat I've really taken a liking to that was my sole responsibility to feed, etc.

Science Diet/Hill is crap as is Eukanuka. Evo is great food. I don't know about Innovar. Wellness is great as is Natural Balance. I feed my cats Felidae.

[i] once took one of my cats to a vet who, upon lifting the cat out of the carrier, exclaimed, "Wow! She is simply gorgeous! What do you feed her?"

I answered, "None of that crap you have stacked up in your lobby..."

I have fed her (And every cat I have ever had) Friskies canned and Purina dry.

Well a friend of mine's cat just died at the ripe old age of 18. I think that's a nice age for a cat. He fed him crap. Friskies, Meow Mix etc. I had a cat who died at 14 but he had a bunch of other digestive issues. He also ate crap. I probably could have prolonged his life by feeding him better food. I think some cats are fine with eating crappy food and some aren't. I have decided that I can fork out the money (which really isn't that much, it's not like I'm feeding a great dane) for good food in the hopes that Willow's fur stays nice and he doesn't have any digestive problems.

Forget about buying Evo, the company has been bought out by Proctor and Gamble. They'll turn it into junk food.

This is a good example why raw diet is best.
