Not only is there very little real meat, but it's preserved with BHA/BHT, which most pet food companies have stopped using because of a possible carcinogenic link. The carbohydrate content of this food is way too high for an obligate carnivore to be eating and while you might end up with a cat that has lovely pearly whites, it will probably also end up with diabetes, kidney issues, inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, etc, all because of these highly inappropriate ingredients.

Please read this link for a rather enlightening look at the cat food industry: What's Eating Kitty?
