I've been (painfully) searching for a healthy, holistic cat food that my cat will actually eat. I don't want by-products and fillers and junk. I bought some Castor & Pollux UltraMix - it sounds VERY healthy, but she doesn't like it. She was eating just enough to get by and she's lost quite a bit of weight (which is actually a good thing because she was overweight, but I don't want her losing too much too fast). So, today I bought Wysong Geriatrix (my cat is almost 13), and she seems to like it a lot. My question is: Has anyone here tried this cat food (well, not them personally, but I mean their cats - LOL) and what was your experience with it? Did your cat like it? Do you think it's a healthy choice? Please let me know what you think. Here's the profile and ingredients:
Specifically designed to fulfill the nutritional needs of aging cats requiring fewer calories than more active adult cats. Lower caloric density and higher food bulk help reduce the glycemic index and lower the body's weight set point of older cats. Such underfeeding with a micro-nutrient dense diet the design of Geriatrx™ has been demonstrated to extend the life-span in a variety of species. Geriatrx™ is also designed for use with degenerative disorders such as kidney, heart, and liver disease which perhaps require lower levels of sodium, higher quality protein sources, and increased micronutrient density.
