Hi all,

Just wondering, for those who feed strays/ferals, what do you usually feed them? Do you feed them the same as your own kitties, or?

I ask because I feed a group of ferals in my office parking lot, and can't afford great quality food (i.e. non-supermarket brands)... but one of the kitties has bad yellow diarrhea... Thoughts highly appreciated :)

Even the shoddy wet food would be inching towards the expensive side (in addition to what we already spend on pet food), so if it were me, I'd invest in a decent grain-free kibble instead.

It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just avoid the really bad stuff like BHA/BHT, dyes, flavorings, and so on.

I did that with every feral we came across. I'd love to feed wet food if I could, but honestly, I'd much rather feed kibble than a cheap wet food packed with all sorts of dangerous ingredients. (though if you can afford a decent wet food, then go for it!)

Mr. Casper gets the same food that Celia gets - NV Instinct dry and Dave's wet. But he's only one cat. I certainly wouldn't be feeding multiple cats the Instinct dry - it's expensive (at least the rabbit is). I'm with Augustine - I'd go with a decent quality dry food that you can get at the supermarket. Purina has a natural line - I don't know what their definition of natural is, but it might be decent? Or maybe you could get one cheaper food and one good quality one and mix them together?

I have 14 ferals that I care for and Im moving toward only dry kibble. Its so expensive to feed wet every day. I also dont like how they gouge us for the cheaply made food so it's kibble from now on.
