corn can also cause diabetes in cats because of its high "sugar" content. SD is on my black list of pet foods. The vet says use it because he gets a kick back from the company for selling it.

So what would you all say is the best food for growing kittens? Mine are 6 and 8 months, I want to make sure they get the proper nutrition they need. The SPCA gave us a 5lb bag of Purina Kitten Chow. I didn't read the ingredients yet, but I am going to!
I've actually never even heard of Innova

I feed my kitten Royal Canin, as for my adult cat, I give her (now) Hill's hairball control... sometimes I transition... (I tried Purina Indoor, Whiskas Indoor, Choice...)
Here is a link to pet food ingredients :

I picked up a sample of Avoderm Chicken & Herring Meal for kittens at my local feed store.
The first few ingredients are: Chicken Meal, Ground Whole Corn, Chicken Fat, Herring Meal, Corn Gluten Meal, Ground Whole Brown Rice, Ground Whole Wheat, Natural Flavor, Dried Egg Product, Tomato Pomace, Dried Milk Protein, Dried Brewers Yeast, Dried Chicken Liver, Dried Chicory Root, Avocado Oil, Avocado Meal

I'm not sure about the corn gluten, but it sounds so much better then the Kitten Chow I was given, so I am going to try this out on my kittens and see if they like it. If so, I will be buying a larger bag. Any opinions on this one?

I'm not that nervous with corn, as long as it's natural (nothing artificial i'll give my kitties, i tried to..) and as long as they combine things together in the right proportion.

It is possible that vets recommend Hill's due to commission as that is where most of it is sold but I did some work experience at a vet's and they recommended that but also James Wellbeloved which they didn't sell so I suspect there is some truth in it.
The anti-furball one certainly seems to help Sootie

Great !! My kitties also accept Anti furball food perfectly. But as I said, sometimes I transititon and give them additional nutrition. Salmon is a good choice, chicken breast is good too. At least they love it.

Default Didn't know this was a big issue

we feed our little boy SD and he seems healthy & happy. We also give him a little wet food morning & evening (he loves this even more!). We got our little guy from Small Miracles Cat Rescue (Ellicott City, MD) and it's what they give all their cats. We couldn't be happier with the health & behavior of Joey, so I have to think they know what's best.

Oh, I love this question!

Baby Sabotage eats two meals a day. If I am running late for work or too tired I'll feed him Nature's Balance or Organix or Newmans own wet food and 1/4 cup of Wellness dry for variety. (We are Organic eating folks!) If I have time, I whip him up raw in my personal blender. Either beef or chicken or turkey mixed with sardines or salmon or mackerel, sometimes brown rice if I have it already cooked and a small scoop of kitty raw food supplement.

As for my opinion on the Hill's Science Diet... some of our cat loving pals live in places in the world where cat food brands are limited. Although not the best choice in the world, HSD does beat out most grocery store brands, ingredient-wise (not the regular HSD!). If thats all you got, thats all you got.

I stand corrected on this, being as neither cat would touch it! They eat the kitten chow (purina) and have a little wet food mixed in, for breakfast. The vet told me today that I need to switch them out, no more kitten food. Now my dilemma lies in finding a good nutritious food for them!
