    Thanks for the tip about buying the larger cans for dogs! I had done that with other brands that were just meat toppers and not complete meals since I have three cats and a dog. I had just assumed the complete meals like these would be different for dogs and cats because of the taurine. But, it looks like in reviews quite a few people have contacted this company and were told the formulas were identical and contain the needed taurine. It seems like they should promote this fact. They may loose a small amount of money with existing customers buying the larger cans instead, but would surely gain new customers with multiple cats who would normally choose a cheaper brand.

    You can't read the label yourself? And cats are carnivores, any healthy cat(regardless of age), handle high protein just fine as long as it's in a canned or raw form.

    I have 3 senior cats one with diabetes most likely form being on prednisolone ( a better form of prednizone for most cats because its easier on their systems) and he has to stay on it. He also used to have issues with crystals in his urine. And he has an autoimmune disorder that affects his skin. He is a 22 pound ragdoll that adopted us 10 years ago. 2nd kitty is a tiny 14 year old male and last is a main coone that has ended up with us and needs to lose weight.
    I have researched food on and off for years and tried to be reasonable expense wise but its hard especially with diabetes. Have learned that cats need high proteins and low carbs and it needs to be mostly wet food. But I have to be careful with too much protein due to his kidneys already starting to decline when they realized he had diabetes.
    Bottom line for me is Evo Cat and kitten wet food as it' s super close to being what a cat would eat naturally. I give all of them 3 servings a day with about 1/4th cup water mixed in. They get a couple tablespoons mixed in each serving. I am mixing it with Wellness grain free turkey in a ratio of 2 cans Evo and one can Wellness to not overdo the protein level although maybe mixing it with water is already taking care of that. Ever since I have mixed with water he hasn' t had any more crystals and it' s been about 6 years.
    I am convinced that the water is a great preventative to any wet food. I may switch to Felidae cat and kitten grain free because I just read that Wellness may have meniodine (need to research that though) in it and that is something I am very against being in cat or dog food.
    The Evo and Felidae are 2.18 for 13oz and that works out to being a great buy to me! Friskies is about .65 for 3 ounces or so- so that comes up to more money per ounce then feeding top quality!
    I also leave a bit of dry food out at the vets request( because if I am not home when my diabetic cat needs protein- he needs to have something available. I finally settled on Innova cat and kitten prime dry food for that. Its pretty new I think. I always buy the largest size in cans or dry because it is much more cost effective.
    Before diabetes they were on Solid Gold grain free. If not for diabetes I would also recommend Merrick Before Grain/Natures Variety/Core original for dry if you have to give dry at all. If wet then the two I listed are the ones I have found to be great food at a great price. It drove me crazy trying to figure out what was best but after reading about diabetes and going to cat forums for that I think I am very happy with my plan. With a high protein low carb wet food many diabetic cat's go into remission and that amazes me. There are charts (think its Lisa Pierson- a veternarian with years of experience treating diabetic cats) that have the true break down of how many proteins and carbs are in each food as well as cost and calories and why it is so important to the cat' s system and how to really know what is in cat food.

    Yes pricy indeed! I just paid 2.24 a can yesterday. I am switching foods because of Angel's reocurring Cystitis. Besides raw, I supplement w/ a little cannen, or if I forget to thaw. Before the Grain is beleived to be to high in minerals, so that's what I exchanged it for. Was supposed to get Blue Buffalo. but didn't have it & recomended the N.V. Instinct for UT stuff. Luckily, I can also use by nature, which they have. :)

    My vet recommended this canned food to me because my cat was having allergic reactions to Natural Balance but she won't touch the Instinct. :/
