I have many cats I've taken over the years and they are quite spoiled. Since there are 8 of them it is hard to feed them seperately but I would like to find a cat food that is high quality and adequete for all my felines. They range in age from 4-16. Currently I have them on science diet maintaince. Are there supplements I should be buy my senior cats. There seems to be so much difference of opinion between vets, breeder, and pet owners, I'm just trying get a consensus on the subject. I'd like to see all my kitties reach a ripe old age.

I have a 21 year old cat. She's eaten everything from Meow mix to Science diet. But now she has no teeth so I'm very limited. Sorry I can't help you but wanted to commend you for obviously being a very good cat owner, or shall I say cat ownee?

My vet recommended Friskies senior food for my Columbus cat, who is ten years old. Columbus will only eat senior turkey and giblets. Otherwise, he'll eat gourmet grill, beef, and chicken. But it all has to be Friskies.

I have had so many cats over the years..currently have 4..in age from 4years to 17 years old...Have taken them all from the street or other stressful situation..as all my others ...they have all lived long lives and never lost one to a trauma..traffic or similiar act. I have fed them for the most part the same food year round..it is the blue bag HEB brand of cat food sold in the HEB grocery chain...it seems to do well for all age groups and they all like it..never had a kitty who turned its nose up at the blue bag..Its not the high end like other brands of pet food, but with multiple critters who all like it...I can't go wrong..Hope this helps you.
