cat food ratings

Hello, does anyone know a site where they provide cat food comparisons?
The only brands available here seem to be purina, friskies, whiskas, fancy feast, iams, ekanuba and science diet. i've heard that some companies process dubious quality meats like roadkill, dead dogs/cats and left over supermarket meats. How do I know which company doesnt?

nutto: This information as of today is still pretty much undefined.
They did tests for such materials in foods years ago, and yes some companies did contain such ingredients.
Since then supposidly pet food companies have taken road kill and such out, but who knows if they really have. A lot of companies, including the ones you listed use non human grade "meat" and by meat I'm not necissarily talking about muscle, but other parts of an animals body.

I assume that since you've mentioned this, you've seen all the pages online, so theirs no reason for me to post them.

There are some food threads here where we have dicussed simple matters of cat foods, which should make it easy for you to pick a good one out. If you have any questions at all feel free to ask.
If you do a search for the brand names of the foods I list for you, you can find their official website, and ofton on there they will have a search function where you can find one of their retail stores near you.

PS: You could also consider feeding the RAW/BARF which is the best IMO.
I will also have my comparison charts of all cat food wet/dry. It's a very large task but I hope to have it completed soon, and I will make this availible online for everyone to reference.

Dry Cat Food:
Solid Gold*
Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul*
Natural Balance*
Timberwolf Organics
Holistic Blend
Natures Variety

Canned/Wet Cat Food:
Felidea - Chicken & Lamb Forumla, Chicken & Rice
Wysong - Duck, Rabbit, Venison, Chicken, Beef
Pinnacle - Chicken & Tuna, Ocean Fish, Chicken & Ocean Fish
Wellness - Chicken & Hearing, Turkey & Salmon

Thanks, I looked up some of these brands at a nearby petstore but most of them don't have kitten specific products.. is it ok to feed a kitten adult cat food?

nutto: Most of the more high quality brands will have just an adult formula, and often on them they will say "for adults and kittens".
They are perfectly safe for kittens to eat.
Depending on how old your kitten is (under 8 months) you would want to find a protein amount ABOVE 30% You'd like something in the more 32-36% margin, when it comes to dry food.

With wet food, you can feed your kitten pretty much anything GOOD and it will provide sensible protein and moister for your cat.
