Quick Answer: How Do I Pick The Best Cat Food?

A good quality cat food should also contain taurine, an amino acid that cats specifically need, and other vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids.

Avoid byproducts like bone meal.

Carbohydrate fillers, like oats or soybean meal, are fine in moderation but should be well under 50 percent of your cat’s diet.

How much wet food should I feed my 15 pound cat?

Typically, dry food contains about 300 calories per cup, and canned food contains about 250 calories in each 6 oz can. (or, 125 per 3-ounce can). Using these counts as a guide, an 8-pound cat would need 4/5 of a cup of dry food or just less than a full 6-oz can (or two 3-ounce cans) of wet food per day.
