Cat food discussions are the bread and butter of our Cat Nutrition forum. As 2016 begins, it's time to review which brands our members liked and recommended the most in the past year.

This list features all types of commercial cat food, including dry, wet and frozen/freeze-dried. These products received the best reviews and mentions from our members, both in the Cat Food Reviews Section and in discussion threads in the Cat Nutrition Forum.

These come in no particular order. All foods have their pros and cons so take the time to study these recommended brands and their ingredients before forming your own opinion and feeding them to your cat.

Members like the variety of flavors and the fact that this food has a low-carb content. It's not considered a high-end feeding option though, to the point that some members only feed it occasionally, as a treat.
