To the above list, I would add Active Life - but good luck finding it, it is back in production.
I also am intrigued with Addiction cat foods, like Petguard rabbit and rice (all of these are canned).

I mentioned previously about Performatrin Ultra dry food and that our cats really love it and it is a pretty good quality. Tonight I was in PetValu and the owner was there (unusual). We were talking and I said I'd like to find a good quality wet food that was less expensive than Merrick's. He suggested I try the Performatrin Ultra wet food (new). He gave me a free can to try and Bijou LOVES it. (Mika is still unsure.)

My cats eat EVO, though the kitties are eating cheap food for a few days (what the old home fed) so I can transition slowly.

It looks like I should eat it ... as for the cats it is solid.. I will show you what concerns me a bit ( other than having so many ingrediants, you know me I like simple )

Oregano


too many veggies and fruits though low grain

What do we think about AvoDerm? It really seems to keep Tigger satisfied like no other wet food. (If we're talking about dry food, I apologize.)

Thanks Sharky. I appreciate your comments. Bijou really loves it. I've had trouble finding something a little less expensive than Merrick that they would eat and they turned their noses up at everything - Natural Balance, Nutro, Chicken Soup, Felidae, and about 6 others that are considered good quality so I was thrilled when Bijou gobbled this stuff up. I was please there were no by-products and grains. I've "pawed" through the food and it looks very meat chunk heavy so I was encouraged.

Linda, why not just alternate it with Merrick's? I've yet to find the "perfect" cat food, so I figure feeding several "very good" ones is probably preferable. That way, the kitties aren't as suspicious of new foods, and you don't have to worry as much about imbalances,
