Question california natural vs EVO ???some opinions please

So ive been trying to change Roland to EVO and hes struggling a whole lot.
i started out with about 1 (evo) to 4 neutro for a few days then made it a little stronger EVO and he still seems to be struggling to adapt digestive wise. i think maybe its a bit strong for him and was wondering if i should try the california natural instead as its not quite as high in Protein and maybe his stomach is too sensitive for the high protein of EVO. Any suggestions? i have had him on the normal digestive enzmes and have tried the stronger ones to no real positive results. What do you guys think? am i rushing it or is he just not ready for such high protein food? (hes 6 months now.) any opinions appreciated.

I'd go slow and give him time. What kind of digestive issues?

Their impression of power is remarkable. They give one the feeling of immense reserves of energy, of great reservoirs of knowledge, of tolerance of disposition, obstinacy of purpose, and tenacity of principle. They are responsive, and they have a lot of quiet, good sense.

My Angus developed FLUTD while on California Natural, I realize it won't happen to every cat, but it does have higher levels of phophorous and magnesium than some of the other better foods out there.

Scott_B hes had diarrea for about a week. not chronic, only at the normal times he goes to the litter box. I have not noticed any other cahnges in him so im thinking its just the change in protien and the digestive enzymes should help. it seemed that they were a lttle fimer yesterday eve but certainly not what they should be. Im wondering if i started the mix too strong and whether i should just start all over again. put him on his old food completely till his tummy gets better then start adding the EVO again and do it over a few weeks?
