Last week, someone wrote about feeding their cat only dry food; I thought
this might be interesting.  Cats need wet/canned food, and can eat dry food
in addition.  If cats eat only dry food, they must drink a lot of water,
and, unfortunately, many do NOT!

Dry cat foods are like kitty crack

by Tracie Hotchner, author of The Cat Bible



This is what I call any and all dry cat foods because they are sprayed with
an addictive substance - what the pet food industry calls the "proprietary
substance" (also known as the "secret sauce") since a cat will not naturally
eat either form or substance of dry food or kibble. 

Carbohydrates are not natural to the cat's digestive system in anything but
the smallest amounts - for example, the undigested grain and plant matter
that would be in the stomachs of rodents or birds a cat would feed on if she
was fending for herself in nature. In order to get a meat-eating animal to
accept hard nuggets of processed cereal grains it has to be sprayed with a
substance they will be drawn to and then become "hooked" on. Pet food
companies spend millions testing their foods and developing their own
closely guarded "secret sauces."
