We don’t like our cat food

Smoky and Sabrina say –
“What’s up with our cat food?  Some of the dry stuff is good and some we don’t like at all.  It’s all mixed together and we just eat the Science Diet we like and leave the other pellets or kick them out of our dish but there is less and less of the good stuff in our bowl each day. ”

Fay says-
What’s a  cats mother to do?   I researched cat food and found cats really only eat meat and even a better commercial food like Science Diet has grain in it and really they say dry food is NOT good for your cat, but it’s so easy.  So I tried the dry cat food that was the most highly recommended Core Wellness Brand which has no grain in it.  I did as recommended and introduced it gradually, mixing 1/4 to 3/4 and then going up to all new food over a weeks time.  I can’t believe they pick out the old food and leave the new food.  They have all new food now and aren’t very happy.  They still love there canned food treat at night and after vacations are done I think I will give them less dry and more canned, even though it costs more.   Smoky is getting a pretty big tummy and he is only one year old so need to get him slimmed down.   Maybe if they don’t like the food much they won’t eat as much which is good.  There food is such a highlight of there day it really pains me to feed them something they don’t like.  My hope is they get used to it.  We have lost many cats to the diseases I read about that are caused by bad food so sure want to keep these two healthy and long lived.

Any advice will be appreciated.
