Answer:
I think all of them will work as long as fed properly. If your cats are not active, Ultimate Protein may not be the best option. My fat cat I recently adopted is responding well with Original Chicken, but she was gaining weight on this one. My other cat was fine on this one as he is more active.

Answer:
Hi there, cats need protein every couple of hours. They're not like dogs where you feed only twice a day. Cats need to be able to eat whenever they need protein, which like I say is every couple of hours. If you put some dry food out for your kitten, he or she will eat it whenever he or she needs it. Cats will nibble… see more Hi there, cats need protein every couple of hours. They're not like dogs where you feed only twice a day. Cats need to be able to eat whenever they need protein, which like I say is every couple of hours. If you put some dry food out for your kitten, he or she will eat it whenever he or she needs it. Cats will nibble on it and go about their business. Not offering dry food to your kitten or cat to be able to eat at all hours of the day is not good for their health in the long run. see less Hi there, cats need protein every couple of hours.

Tapioca is used as the starch source to bind together all the other ingredients for the final product consistency and form. All commercially prepared dry pet foods must contain a form of starch or the final product will be a bunch of crumbs. Compare this to adding bread crumbs to meatloaf…the bread crumbs are binding the remaining ingredients together so a loaf shape can be formed.

Is Tapioca Healthy?
Yes, the carbohydrate is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds. These include a very low level of saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. It is also a rich source of dietary fiber, “good” cholesterol, and protein. Furthermore, tapioca contains members of the vitamin B-complex, including pantothenic acid, folate, and B6, as well as iron, manganese, calcium, copper, and selenium. Besides, if you’ve ever had tapioca pudding, your taste buds will never forget it…in a good way, of course! 😉 see less

I imagine so, but it would be healthier, then, to purchase soft food so s/he can have some tasty meat. You can likely add Water to any dry food.

It likely will nkt taste very good, NLESS you add only a little to soften. Test it out and go slowly and see at what level YOUR cat likes it. My cat likes this food, and i wanted something without meal/ filler, so i checked out many products. I give my cat 1/4 to 1/4 can of soft food twice a day with an once or two added to bottom of plate, and i give the appopriate amt of dry food for my age cat. My fave Vet has youtubes about cars, so i would browse Dr Becker veg videos on older cats. She will share excellent info. The hard crunch of dry food helps keep teeth strong, too, i think. Just remember, all cats generally need more water than we think. An$ they have a hard time seeing water with their eyes. The best cat fountain i have ever found is VEKEN cat fountain. My cat likes it without the flower part, so i just leave that optionalpart off ( but those used to drinking out of a faucett will like it). I clean it WEEKLY as that keeps the water fresh enough for my cat to drink it( otherwise mine will ignore it. Is easy to clean and sturdy materials, just be gentle and mindful as if YOUwere going to drink out of it. Okay, those are my ideas, but Dr Becker will have the most species appropriate advice fir aging pets. As will your own cat’s vet. see less I imagine so, but it would be healthier, then, to purchase soft food so s/he can have some tasty meat. You can likely add Water to any dry food.
