her older cat. I am concerned of course about the phosphorous numbers.

I've got some Wellness Core Dry, he gobbled that right up.
Wellness Core Dry is too high in phos for my liking @ 1.40% dry matter phos, though the protein level is good for weight gain dry matter 55.87%, fat dry matter 20.33%.

For lower phos you would be better to go with:

Wellness Indoor @ 0.85% dry matter phos, Protein dry matter 33.53%, Fat dry matter 14.13%

Wellness Complete Health Adult Salmon, Salmon Meal & Deboned Turkey @ 1.01%, Protein dry matter 39.78%, Fat dry matter 20.65%

Wellness Complete Health Adult Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal & Rice @ 1.12%, Protein dry matter 40%, Fat dry matter 20.26%

Eagle Pack Holistic Select Dry Duck @ 1.13, Protein dry matter 35.4%, don't have actual value for fat but it is around 20%

No, I can't see how it would affect weight.
