As another poster said, cats are obligate carnivores. That means they should be on a grain free diet ONLY. They also should be on grain-free canned or raw, if at all possible. Dry food is really hard on their kidneys and has no benefit to their teeth.
My cat Cleo lived to be 19+ years old. I fed her crap food for the first half of her life--a mix of kibble and grocery store canned food. She ended up with bad teeth, food allergies, chronic renal failure and IBD and some other things that I don't even remember the name of. When she was about 14 she stopped eating entirely and almost died. We had to hand feed her to keep her alive. After a lot of testing they said she had IBD. At that point I got very educated about cats and proper diet. I switched her over to raw and she did great for a number of years. When she was older she couldn't handle raw so I switched her over to grain free canned. Switching foods honestly saved her life!
My current two eat raw and canned pumpkin and they poop once a day. Their poops are small and usually don't smell. I know because their litter box is in my bedroom closet! I use a natural litter called Cedarific but they do track it around the house. I'm thinking of switching to World's Best Cat Litter.
They also shed far less than cats who aren't on a raw diet and their coats are spectacular!
