petco has: Eagle Pack, Natural Balance, Royal Canin, and Solid Gold
Petsmart has: Authority, Blue Spa, along with a few of the above ones.
Pet World has: innova, California Natural, Chicken Soup and Felidae, they probably have more but this is all I know they have.
So which do you think would be best or what do you like. Also if you could tell me the texture I would appreciate it. Thanks!!
I forgot about your original question.
My Petco doesn't carry Eagle Pack or Solid Gold. They have Royal Canin, but I don't think RC has any regular (not Rx) wet food, though.
My cats like Natural Balance quite well...their favorite is the venison and pea flavor.
I feed the Eagle Pack too...I just get it elsewhere. My cats eat the duck/oatmeal the best, but 7 out of 8 of mine are acting a little funny about EP now. Leopold loves it, though...every flavor. It's a kind of mushy pate...the food in the extra-large cans I get may be a little mushier than the smaller cans...that's been my observation anyway.
I can't find canned SG locally, so we haven't had any. I've heard good things about it, though. My cats love the dry SG, though.
Between regular Innova and Innova EVO, my cats all prefer the regular Innova. They eat both, though. EVO is a really good food. The texture is again, sort of mushy pate...the innova has a somewhat oily feel to it.
California Natural...they eat the Salmon/Sweet potato best. They'll eat the other flavors ok too. Salmon/sweet potato is mushy, the chicken/rice is still a little mushy but more like the innova consistency. Hard to explain.
Felidae ...my cats didn't really go nuts over the chicken and rice. The consistency reminds me of Nutro Pate, a sorta sticky pate. My cats prefer the one that has several meats in it...and it's a little more wet/ground texture.
We tried chicken soup kitten canned once and they all had stinky poos...they get a lot of kitten foods, so I don't think that was it. We may try again sometime. I don't remember the texture, it's a lot like the others above, though.
Out of your choice of stores, I would probably lean towards Pet World...mainly because the selection at Petco may not be that great. They have a lot more on their website than I really see in the stores here. Second reason would be that my cats don't seem to ever get tired of the Innova food.
Forgot to mention...my cats weren't impressed with Blue Spa, and I rarely buy 3 oz cans...to many cats to feed, and that's the only size BS comes in, around here anyway. It's a sticky pate, sort of like Nutro pate. Already mentioned, I too would skip the Authority at the moment.
