Re: Grain free cat food...or best cat food in general?
You bring up a good point. Dry foods, even grain free ones, are FULL, chalk full of carbs. that is why I say there is no such thing as a good dry cat food, cats don't handle carbs. A mouse consists of maybe 2-3% carbs. ALL dry foods contain considerably more carbs than that, by a mile. Some brands try tapioca instead of potato but it's still a carb and in the end has the same effect, perhaps it's just less allergy inducing than grains, maybe potatoes and tapioca gets digested a little easier than grains. They have to have carbs to be in the form of dry kibble, without them they do not hold that hard, crunchy form.
If you want GOOD cat food go for a grain free wet, even a wet with some grains like rice is better than even a high quality dry cat food. Or go raw, you'll need to learn a few things first but I'd be glad to help if you do consider going that route.
