Thinking of switching Emmas diet

My kitten Emma has been on Blue Buffalo Kitten food since I got her she is now 6 months old and I am thinking about her adult diet which will be changed when she is 1 year. I have been looking at Innova does anyone have experience with this food? It seems very natural. Here is the link.

Also will she eat less as she grows? She cleans her bowl twice daily O.o

PS Emma will NOT eat canned food I have tried many of the best brands with her ... No such luck.

Ideally you should probably be looking for grain-free. Innova's not bad that I've heard, but it's not grain-free either. As far as not eating canned food, yeah.. that can be a tough habit to break. Cats become "Dry food junkies" and some won't accept anything but dry, no matter whether it's healthier for them or not.

No we have been offering wet food since I got her she does not like it. And we got her at 5 weeks as far as grain free this is my best option

But its not as natural as Innova.

I heard good recommendations with Innova but we don't have actual experience with it.

How about Innova EVO instead of regular?

Of course, raw or canned is always best but if I was feeding dry I'd consider EVO . I'd add water to the food, though.

Innova EVO is not something I can get ahold of I would love to but other than ordering off Amazon I cant get it.

I pay 20 for 7 lbs so I guess I can pay 28 for 8 lbs.

I do LOVE natural foods and that one is grain free too ... Yeah def worth the costs for my baby to have the very best

I give our cats Earthborn Holistic now. They have two grain-free varieties and it's apprx. $27.00 for 14 lbs. $20-$28 for less than 10 lbs is absolutely ridiculous :/

We used to pay $20 for 6 lbs for 3 cats and it was ridiculous. It's absolutely astonishing how much price these companies put on their foods. I've never fed Before Grain, so I don't know how good it is. But you can look for reviews and see how people like it.

It looks OK...comparable to Innova. Not something I'd feed (look at all those potatoes...) but better than most.

I know its a lot of potatoes but my options are so limited I want her to have a great food I am willing to do blue buffalo wilderness ... I want to do evo but I just cant pay 30 bucks a bag right now. If i could find it free shipping or locally i would be all over it.

I was also looking at taste of the wild

Cool, I'm glad you found a new option . If you ever do need to order online let me know and I'll send you a link to a site that tends to have free shipping.
