excuse me?


from Wellness Pet foods
Cats do not adjust water intake based on their diet, and have reduced total water intake when fed dry foods only. Pet owners should encourage cats to drink water and have an adequate fluid intake daily.


Um.. ok, lets break this down.

Cats do not adjust water intake based on their diet so cats have a low thirst drive, and won't drink more if they are eating a low moisture diet.. yes, true.
and have a reduced water intake when fed dry foods only. yup. Dry food can lead to chronic dehydration.. totally.
Pet owners should encourage cats to drink water um.. how? Seriously? how do you get a cat to drink water that has a low thirst drive and as you just said do not adjust water intake based on their diet

So in other words, they are telling you that dry food is not appropriate foods for your cats to eat, but since they still sell it and they still want people to buy it they are trying to create themselves an out?? seems so contradictory to me. If you know cats need water, then why are you selling a product that doesn't contain it and will cause cats to need to do something they aren't willing to do (aka adjust water intake based on their diet)

*shakes head*

there will always be dry food, and I don't think that is a bad thing. I do believe that there is a place for dry food in a cat's diet(not every cat, just cats in general), just as there is a place for McDonald's food in a human diet (again not everyone, but humans in general) or ice cream or cookies..
