I think Petco has Natural Balance, which is a little better than both of those. I have heard about some food that PetSmart is supposed to have called "Blue" or "Blu"??? But I have never seen it.

Has anyone heard?

Has anyone heard that Authority (Petsmart) brand cat food is considered one of the better foods? I saw this listed on a web site that talked about the Premium foods, i.e., Innova, Wellnes, Felidae. There on the list was Authority. I thought the label read pretty good however, my cats don't care for it.

I went to Petsmart the other day. They do sell Blue and if your store doesn't have it, they sell it online. The ingredients looked really good, but its really expensive. I'm not really sure why I bought it. I got rougly a 2lb bag for around $9. To me, that's way too much to spend on cat food.

For now, I'm just mixing it with the food I have now, and I think eventually I'll be mixing it with another "good" but affordable dry food when I run out of what I'm using now.

As for the Authority, I've never tried it, and can't seem to find the ingredients anywhere. I'll try to search a little harder later on. Anyone else know what's in it?

I don't have a Petco near me, so I can't be much help there.

The BEST ones you will find, from the top notch real premium foods are...

PetSmart - Blue (Blue Buffalo)
Petco - Natural Balance.

Jonsgirl, you are right. Petco carries Natural Balance, and PetSmart carries BLUE. Both are Ultra-Premium.

BLUE does not make a canned food...FYI.

Authority is worse than Nutro! Instead of the rice products Nutro has, Authority has a bunch of corn products.

Take Care,

Nutro has a lot of rice AND corn products...if you are talking about Nutro Max atleast. I have had not experience with Authority, or even read the ingredients though. I tried to look it up online and came up empty handed though.

No, I am talking Nutro Natural. Nutro has more rice products, whereas Authority has more corn products. I believe rice products are eaiser to digest.

Plus, I believe Authority only has like one meat source, which is Chicken Meal. At least Nutro has other meats in it.

I have been told that rice products are easier to digest too!
So, I guess Authority is another one we can add to the list of foods not to buy.
