Doing what you believe is best for your children and your family makes you a good mother, no matter if it fits anyone else’s standard. There will always be decisions you make that others will be able to find fault with. "I think a lot of mothers need to get with the fact that their true allegiance needs to be with their kids," Hicks says. "When you’re comfortable with your decisions, you need to just stand in them and own them and recognize that the only one you have to answer to is your child later. I don’t have to answer to other people. It takes a little bit of guts, but it’s liberating."
I agree with the comments that every cat is different and if something works for your cat, then great. However, having had cats that have developed IBD, chronic UTI’s, etc,, I truly believe that the healthier the better. What you put in your cat’s gut will (for many, if not most cats) dictate how healthy they will stay. They may be ok for a while, but can develop intolerances. I have also done a lot of homework and believe that Nature’s Variety is good, and Nature’s Logic (Nature’s Logic is the ONLY canned food that doesn’t have synthetic vitamins, which are hell on a cat with IBD and Lymphoma). Appreciate being able to check with others to get their research and point me to more information.
