    mine are on wet now (after wrastling with them!) except one, and she's the next one. There is a lot of advice out there about how to get them off dry. It ain't easy, but it IS better for the cats because the carb load in wet food is generally lower and the water intake a lot higher.

    Most of my cats will eat almost anything, though I never feed fish (unless it is fresh wild caught). Fish is one of the ways they increase protein in cat foods, so it might be CALLED chicken, but if you look carefully, there may be fish in it. Fish isn't a reliable food source often and most certainly not sustainable, so I don't feed it.

    It takes some work, but you can get them off dry. You might try Dr. Lisa's site for suggestions on things to try. Likely something will work. She is pretty damned wonderful!

      My boys loved that canned food, but Misty is totally different.  I'll try those suggestions.
