    Re: Crazy sentence to diagram

    Welcome, nnbob.

    subject: A cat and her kittens
    verb: should be fed
    object: a high quality commercial cat food.

    high modifies quality
    high quality modifies commercial
    high quality commercial modifies cat food
    cat modifies food

    The determiner is part of a set phrase, notably, [a type/kind of] cat food.
