James Wellbeloved Housecat Duck Formula is designed for adult cats who spend all their time indoors. Being inside, your cat uses up less energy than one which roams outside, but it is likely that your cat still has a good appetite, so our Housecat Formula contains less fat than our standard adult food. To make the litter tray more acceptable, we use highly digestible ingredients to keep stool output low and we also add a natural clay to absorb many of the stool odours.

A complete dry food with the bonus that it is hypo-allergenic. With selected protein source (duck), it is a dietetic food, excellent for the reduction of ingredient and nutrient intolerences. We suggest that the food be tried for a period of 3 to 8 weeks. If the signs of the food intolerence disappear, continue feeding indefinitely.

House-cat cat food vs light cat food

31st May 2016

Any idea if the house-cat formula James Wellbeloved dried cat food is lower calorie than the Light version?

Given the house-cat formula is meant to be lower energy for cats that don't go outside and the Light formula says it's 15% lower cal than the regular formula, how do these two actually compare against each other?

The total calorie content of the light version is lower, which has been achieved by reducing the fat content. However it has even more carbohydrate in it than the Housecat version and it is a matter of much controversy as to which, if either, is more helpful for weight control. Personally I would suggest that the Housecat version is the better of the two. High levels of carbohydrate are a controversial inclusion for cat food. The other comment I would make is that many cats will get very fat on either of the diets if they are fed in limitless amounts. The only way to be sure that a cat will not over-eat is to offer food twice per day and make sure that any not eaten after a few minutes is removed. The concept of "grazing" is very appealing to generous and kind cat owners, but it produces a lot of fat cats. A measured amount twice per day is a much better plan - always when it is "time" and never on "demand" or hungry cats can become quite tiresome. Then the measured amount is increased or decreased gradually over time to produce a cat of the desired body weight. It always works, but ad lib feeding of high carbohydrate foods rarely does.
