Healthy Foods for Kitties

NO FISH FLAVOURS IN GENERAL: Be sure to always read the ingredient list on a bag or can. The first 4 -5 ingredients are the main ones by %; if they include fish that's a big no-no, and can seriously hurt your kitty in the long-run.  HOWEVER, fish oil that is often mentioned further down the list is fine because it contains Omega-3 fatty acids, great for a cat's skin and coat.
