Hi Lorena, I love your blog! So helpful. I was wondering, is it okay to mix dry food brands? Not just when switching foods but always? I had my cat on Acana Meadowlands, but wanted to try Fromm. I bought Fromm and my cat really likes it! But since Acana lists all amino acids, part of me wants to keep him on Acana too. He is healthy and 9 or 10 years old. Thank you, Mina
My kitten is now almost 1 year. He is now eating blue buffalo kitten dry food. I want to switch him to the best dry food out there. He is an active indoor male cat. What is the top 3 dry foods out there you recommend? Thank you very much for the help!!

Cat Foods: Adult Dry Cat Food by Drs. Foster & Smith
Wysong premium cat foods are designed to mimic the archetypal carnivorous diet. Each of our dry cat diets is equally suitable for cats of all life stages and breeds, and is designed to be fed in rotation and supplemented with Wysong diets, healthful , and revitalizing Wysong .But a few companies make dry cat foods that are mostly high-grade meat -- and no grain. Among those, Orijen's dry cat food is easily the best you can buy, experts say. This Canadian company now makes its dry cat food products in their own facility in Kentucky, using locally sourced meats and vegetables, and absolutely no grains. Orijen claims 90 percent meat content, and blends in organs and cartilage to mimic whole prey. The remaining 10 percent is made up of vegetables, fruits, and botanicals.While some experts recommend against dry cat foods, others say that it is fine as long as you make sure your cat is getting plenty of moisture from other sources. However, it's important to pick a species-appropriate dry food. Most dry cat foods are made largely from grain, with little fresh meat (if any). Some experts say that can cause obesity, diabetes and other diseases in cats, which are strict carnivores that haven't evolved to eat much grain. Best of both worlds in one diet, these foods tend to be high in moisture, fat and protein content and are easier for older kitties with sensitive teeth than exclusively dry food. Cats naturally take in most of their water from their food so these soft bite-sized bits meet most of your pet’s hydration requirements.
