Exactly. But people see the words "low fat food" and they think their cat is going to lose weight from it. I mean right on the label you can see that it has half as much fat as other dry foods. But...if you take something away you have to put something back in. What they put in, is carbs. So usually cats actually GAIN weight on the low fat dry foods. Best way to help your cat lose weight is definitely a wet food diet.queen of the nile said:From what I've read and heardm it's actually the lower carbs in wet food and the moisture that make it a great weight-loss aid. Apparently, having a higher fat content is not bad for a cat, whereas a high carb content *is*. Since they are obligate carnivores I would think that the carbohydrates would be more difficult for them to digest.
