I've read that also
I read that also that the meal is actually more nutritious. It makes sense when you think about it. However, I don't obcess about meat or meal, I concentrate on corn and other grains and by products. If the food is free from corn and by-products and has more than 1 meat or fish protein source than I go with it. I do give my cats a wide variety so I think I cover all their nutritional needs., i.e. premium wet, premium dry, raw and not so preimium Fancy Feast mixed in with dry. No UTI's or diabetes in the seniors so I guess I'm doing something right. Of course lots and lots of clean, fresh water everyday, all day!!
