A wonderful and informative read. Very eye-opening and highly recommended for anyone interested in feeding their cat a healthy alternative to dry kibble food.

Excellent, fantastic book. It has been a little known fact that dry food is not healthy for cats at all, and is a main contributor in health problems such as obesity and diabetes. This book brings the truth into the spotlight.

Your Cat shows you how to read pet food labels and choose a food that will build the foundation of your cat's health. I only wish I had read this book sooner. What I learned could have saved my diabetic cat's life. I reccomend this book to anyone who has or loves cats.
