Bonnie, Thanks for the update.  Cats like Royal Canin SO much better
than Hills CD, but get him on all canned food as soon as you can.
Wellness is known for causing urinary problems.  My Polar Bear, who 
is my FLUTD cat, eats canned Fancy Feast and Friskies.  Not the best 
canned food, but at least he eats it.  He was a dry food junkie, and
I had a very hard time getting him on canned only.  I now add a lot
extra water to it, and sprinkle just a few dry kibbles on top, and 
he eats it.  All this I learned in the FLUTD group.

BTW - Wow what a vet bills!!  But our cats are worth every 
penny of it.
