protein content in dry food

I am confused. I have been researching different types of dry food to give my cat and thought i had it figured out. I was on a different forum and read about how having chicken or turkey (any real meat source)as a number one ingredient as compared to chicken meal, turkey meal etc is worse because with the real meat the majority of protein content is water as compared to the meal where the protein content is higher. Can anyone clear this up for me. ???

Really, there's not much to clear up. Feed him wet food! In the end you'll save on litter, vet bills, and most importantly, your sanity!

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!!
