It's also great for sensitive stomachs because it's made with only a few ingredients, all protein coming from chicken, chicken fat, brown rice, sunflower oil, flax seed and vitamins and minerals.
I always offer my cats wet food morning and night and find that they will only eat as much wet food as they want to eat, at least they eat some, but I do find myself throwing uneaten wet food away and as soon as I fill the bowl with California Natural they eat like hungry lions.
Don't give up completely on wet, you might be able to get them to eat a little. You could start by only giving it once a day and as you see them eating more of it you could increase it.
My kitties coats are gorgeous on the Chicken Soup, and they do love it, or in other words, everybody
I only feed wet in the evening for "dinner" it would just simply be too expensive to fed it twice, and i leave dry out all the time. The problem I had with the other wets was they would literally take a bite and walk away, and trust me, these kitties have APPETITES!!! When I feed the Meow Mix they eat every bite, and I really want them to eat the wet for moisture, etc, I just can't afford to throw away uneaten food
As for feeding the kitten formula until they grow up, the problem with that is that I already have 2 adults, Jinx and Sapphire, 3 of my girls will be a year old in a few months, Pandora, Antigone and my semi-feral Medusa, 3 more are 7 months old now, Ismene, Zeus and Demeter and the remaining 2, Eros and nike are alomst 4 months old! Ack, plus I'm getting a approximately 4 year old male this weekend! And I'll admit it, my babies are a little "thick"
This is a very complicated situation

I have found the Feline Vita-Gravy at Petco.
Oh they have no problem eating their dry, at least the Chicken Soup

Is there any way you can get any sample packs? I realize you would need quite a few of them, but still....
That is true, it would just be my luck that I would buy this huge bag and nobody would eat it, the little brats.... it would take quite a few, huh?
Maybe I could start by mixing it in with the Chicken Soup? I'm begining to think I should just stick with the Chicken Soup, if it ain't broke, don't fix it I suppose

Hmmm, no I didn't know that, but I did realize that the kitten formula is higher in fat and protein, but it is also a little more expensive too. I may just switch back to the adult formula as a couple of my crew DO NOT need the extra fat
Pandora has gotten quite a belly on her and Eros, at 14 weeks, is over five pounds
Jiminy Crickets! I'll just stick with the Chicken Soup, but I'll go to the adult formula
everyone likes it, it is very affordable and I'm not having any problems on it
If my kitties live to be 10 Jennifer, I will be the happiest person on this whole planet, I truly hope they reach double digits
