This one is very tricky as there are conflicting research and advice from vets. For nutritional matters, best to do as much research as possible because the cat's individual needs seem to vary. I have heard nutritional advice from some of our local vets which i know is completely wrong.

Generally, it seems

Young Cats- Seem to require higher protein for development

Medium aged Cats- seem to require moderate protein levels for maintenance

Old cats -not necessary to drop their protein level by much but rather to change their overall food composition if significant changes are observed in their built/mass. This is due to onset of other health problems or disease as they age.


Some interesting articles

Senior Cat

Insights into Veterinary Endocrinology: Optimal Protein Requirements for Older Cats and Cats with Hyperthyroidism

Caring for the elderly cat

best if people with old cats can post their experiences.

Thks alot..

Any review on NUTRIPE and ADDICTION brands from forummers?

I tried Addiction's Brushtail & Venison and Nutripe's Chicken and Lamb recipes. Both brands contain pieces of bones which did not disintergrate when I tried to crush them. So, I just took these out from the food before serving it to my cats leh.

The Lamb recipe looked weird leh. I opened the can and saw many tiny white spots on the surface and within the food. The expiry year was 2014 leh. I did not know if this was due to calcium deposits or fungus. So, I threw the food away.

I am still on the lookout for new wet food brands to replace EVO. I was extremely disappointed when I learnt P&G bought over Natura

All Vets Natural's Health Booster

Also, a cat lover recommended me this multi-vitamin & mineral supplement which is to be added to raw meat.

So far, her cats are doing all right but the long-term effect (more than 8 years' of usage) is unknown yet. Cow liver is used (I emailed the vet's clinic to confirm). I have not buy yet cos' I thought the Vitamin C level is quite high (4th ingredient).

Comments?

I'm feeding my 4 cats Fussie Cat (different flavours) in the mornings and Wellness Core in the evenings.

My SiameseX suddenly doesn't want to eat Fussie Cat and my grey tabby doesn't eat Wellness Core at all. Generally, all the cats don't think highly of Wellness Core and eat because they have no choice.

Could anyone give other dry food alternatives? Both SiameseX and grey tabby are skinny. I have been giving the tabby Fussie Cat in the evenings but am more worried about the SiameseX. Thanks.

I need suggestions for dry and wet food. I've gone through many brands (list below) including raw meat and my cats are eating very begrudgingly. I think one of them is allergic to fish so my selection is reduced further.

Natural Balance
Wellness Core & grain-free
Golden Eagle Holistic Sensitive grain-free
Feline Caviar
Ziwipeak (they hated it)

Any other brands to recommend?

Has anyone tried Honest Kitchen Prowl or similar re-hydrated food? I'm not sure if my princesses are keen to eat "porridge".

My cat tried Ziwipeak -fish n veal... initially seems fine (doesn't puke anymore) but just before the small packet finish, he started puking. I changed the flavor to veal and there was no improvement, continuous puking and refusal to eat eventually. After visiting 2 vets, now that recovered, I am feeding him first choice - senior (small packet) and he seems to be fine with it.
