Default Web site tracking Cat foods

Is there a website that lists the general good-ness of the product(s)?
I bring this up because I've noticed that "Phil" recommends a few
things over others, but then when a topic is brought up I tend to learn
something new regarding a food product.

For example, I read here at one point that Phil thinks Fancy Feast is a
pretty okay product. Now I thought that FF would be out the door since
its basically a commercial-type store product, not something you would
generally find in Petco or Petsmart.

Then I research further and saw alot of Nutro-products mentioned by
him, but later learn that their Ca:P ratio is probably off.

I'm developing a friggin headache.

Wouldn't it be easier if there was a website that had all these
products catagorized and graded or rated? Then if someone learns
something new about a product, we (or they, or someone) could go in and
modify the rating.

Just something to make it a bit easier...

Joe,

I wish there was such a site.
If there is, I have been unable to find it.

The pet food companies make it more complicated than it needs to be.
Find what works well for your cats and stick with it.

Ditto what Cheeryl said. You could find the most "perfect" cat food in
the world, but if the cats won't eat it, your time is wasted. bottom
line is there are a number of acceptable foods - both premium and
"grocery store" brands. Try a few to see what they like, and then
stick with it.

Would be nice to have a consumer's reports on cat food. I think
that is what the original poster is asking for.

What about a government rating system or something.

Consumer reports would be nice, even government ratings. But even a
users database would be kickin'. But anythings better than nothing.

Anyway, my cat likes Fancy Feast, and I've heard good things, even has
that ratings statement on the side, so I'm gonna stay with that.

I just gotta find a decent kibble (dry) for her to nibble on throughout
the day.
