I always fed my cat Purina dry cat food. I'd also let him have the juice/water from the tuna can. He liked cheese and peanut butter too. There are cat foods that have hairball remedy/prevention in them. Science Diet is a good food and they have it for older cats. There are also cat treats that have hairball remedy/prevention in it. Try a low ash cat food to help prevent urinary problems in the future. Make sure he goes to the Vet every year too. 7 is still pretty young for a cat. They can live to be 15 - 20 years or more.

My cat lived to be 24 human years old. "Louie" my cat only ate dry dog food. On rare occasion she would get some tuna. Never gave her any people food. She had most of her teeth when she died, thanks to the dry food. Took her to the vet one time for a cold, kept sneezing on me. Other than having her fixed never took her again.

I have friends, Zorro, who only feed their cats dogfood! And others who give them all kinds of human food. Some live way beyond their 9 lives, and some not. It just makes no sense. My parents had 24 cats when I was born - er, they were feeding 24 cats. 3 or 4 of them were house cats, the others were outside cats and some downright feral. So I grew up being a cat lover and have always had one or two, now three. They eat only dry food, no human food except a little chicken or steak once in a great while if they come begging for it. I have them altered or spade when they are young and they get their baby shots. Beyond that, no vet care except for dental every few years. Our two 18-yr-old cats died in 2010, so our new batch of felines are young, all under 3 years old.

It is according to if your cat has any kind of health conditions going on as to what type food you should be feeding it. Best if you think there is a problem get a complete bloodwork done on your cat so that the vet can have a blood profile and see what all is going on with your cat then a better decision can be made on the food issue.

Found out amino acid taurine is needed for cats . They need it for a healthy heart to function . Tuna that peple eat does not have any or very little. If they eat very much of this they will become sick. Ham, salty meats, milk, and bones. Well read this link.
