The more I think about it the more fear I have about getting a new cat. I know that the biggest part is opening up my heart and making myself vulnerable to this kind of pain again, but even if I can get past that my next worry is what to feed him or her.

Who do you trust? Wet food is out. Dry food causes kidney problems. Organic food is pretty expensive. Real meat is best but then you have to add stuff and grind bones etc.

It's just all so confusing.

Sadie (named after the Beatles song "s e x y Sadie") came into my life when I rescued her from a cage in the SPCA in 1991. Then she was taken from me when she ate the tainted IAMs food in 2007. You will always be in my heart and thoughts, Sadie. There will never be another like you!

Dry food is not all bad. I wouldn't feed a kitty a strictly dry menu, but to have some to munch on is really good for their teeth, not only for plaque, but for strength. I lay down both canned and dry for my cats, and they love the variety. I feed them a high quality, grain free food, and even my finicky cat will munch a little bit on it.
