A species-appropriate diet is a good place to start. Cats are obligate carnivores, and their foods (with rare exceptions) should not be full of stuff like corn, soy, wheat, dairy and, for some cats (like one of mine), eggs. Other ingredients to avoid include any unnamed meat ingredient such as meat meat, meat by-products or animal fat.
Just because corn and wheat, for example, have proteins doesn't make those proteins as bio-available to your cat as animal protein.
There's lots of good info out there on quality cat nutrition and how to pick out quality foods if you aren't ready to do it yourself.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)

Hi, Sam--I've never heard anything about Cranimals, so can't help you there. But since Izzy's diagnosis, my vet says to not feed him anything but his prescription diet. I don't want to take a chance on anything else being bad forl him. My advice, I guess, would be to ask your vet what they think. Good luck with your kitties.
