      I juat want to comment that Noreen's food pages (katkarma) are based on DRY
      MATTER. Since canned cat food is 75% to 80% moisture, the dry matter is
      only 20% to 25%. So a 155 gram can (5 1/2 ounce) has, say, 38 grams of dry
      matter. So if a food has 0.5% sodium, that's about 190mg of sodium --- 38
      grams times 1000 equal 38000mgs. And then tims 0.005 (0.5%) gives 190.
