When I first started caring for our inherited cat colony, I was a
novice. I did some reading and discovered the type of protein in dry cat
food is not as good as the protein in wet cat food. Some online sites
recommend NOT including dry cat food along with the wet for many
reasons, including that it can make them fatter or contribute to
diabetes later. But I think they need it for keeping the plaque off
their teeth, so I offer them both. The ones who favor the dry food seem
to me to have better teeth conditions.
