I took in a stray cat this past Sunday. I've never had a cat before, so I have no idea what I'm doing. She was very malnourished, still very thin. Is there a website that reviews cat food (similar to the one that reviews dog food)? Do you have any suggestions for a good food?

What dog food do you buy? Most dog food companies also sell cat food, and if their dog food is decent, usually their cat food is, too. What stores are in your area? I'm not aware of any cat food rating sites, but the same principles apply (meat as the frist few ingredients, etc.).

Recent research suggests that cats should have at least some canned food in their diet. They simply don't drink enough (being desert animals who are supposed to get all their moisture from the blood/flesh of their prey). 50/50 canned/dry is a good ratio for most cats. If you have to feed less canned for financial reasons, that's fine, but try to give her a bit of moist food every day.
