Hi Elizabeth1st, and welcome to pets.ca!
All sorts of furry and non-furry animal species are perfectly acceptable topics of conversation here. Cat nutrition is frequently discussed, and I tend to be in the same camp as Dr. Pierson (along with a growing number of other vets). Wet food is preferable to dry, and if you can do a balanced raw diet, even better. Here are some more links for you to check out if you're interested.
