I have 3 cats, each 13 years old. One of my cats has been diabetic for about 6 years. Another has extremely sensitive skin and an allergy to fleas.
I’ve been trying to find the right foods for them for a long time but have been looking in the wrong places. They’ve lived mainly off of dry foods their entire lives… I recently started feeding them some Trader Joes wet food at night.
More research has helped me discover how bad the dry foods have been for them (wow!). I would like to start feeding them better but don’t quite know where to start.
The sensitive skin cat has started to dislike the dry food more and more (probably because he’s now discovered the wet food) and he’s eating less and less. Any recommendations on some food I can purchase while I continue my research? Any good websites that you want to recommend for researching?

Cats are best fed a [b]fresh[/b] (raw or lightly cooked), organic, meat-based diet. Read [url]https://www.homevet.com/petcare/feedingyourcat.html[/url] for much more info.
On the way to this goal you can feed the highest quality commercial foods like ZiwiPeak air dried New Zealand meats [url]https://homevet.com/osc/product_info.php?cPath=8&products_id=71[/url] or Wysong Archetype [url]https://homevet.com/osc/product_info.php?cPath=8&products_id=53[/url] High quality (but more devitalized) canned foods are also much better than any dry food. ZiwiPeak, PetGuard, Wellness, Wysong, etc. all make very good canned foods.
Regarding more research, I suggest you start with the great info collected in my natural pet library. There are also some great books in my bookstore.
