Sorry if this is a repeat, i was in petsmart today and they had all the tins and pouched wet foods available again.

whether my group will take to it again.. will remain to be seen but at least it's back.

Yea, I saw them here last week when we went shopping for the kitties. I didnt buy any this time, maybe next.

yes in MANY areas the pouches are back ....

Yeah, I was quite happy to see these back out. Especially seeing how UTI friendly they seem to be. I'm just having some issues figuring out again how much to chop it up for Chase.. too much and he doesn't want it, too little and he has too much trouble eating it. Goofy cat.

Pouches?!?! All I found were the MAX cat cans...the 3 oz ones Twitch likes, but are too chickeny for Damita. I want the pouches....so does Twitch!

No petsmart here, 3 hours away is the nearest....so I guess I'll have to wait!

Good.
My cats used to eat that food before the recall.
Now I can buy it for them again.
I hope the problem was taken care of.

Anyone know of any online retailers that are carrying them again?

Petfooddirect has some of the cans again, but not the pouches.

I have been looking for these, but I haven't seen the pouches yet in any of my three local petsmart stores...and they sent me a coupon for these that's only good until the end of November so they better hurry up!!

Stan just doesn't like the wellness pouches as much and I don't like feeding him the meow mix or friskies ones.

We've got the new pouches, but Tailer doesn't seem to like them as much as he used to.

The pouches showed up this weekend at my petsmart. Used the buy 6 get 6 free coupon they sent me (saved $4!!). The problem is I can't remember which ones Stan likes. The salmon dinner was given a luke warm reception (licked the gravy, took his sweet time eating the chunks)...lets hope for better luck with the other flavors.

I hope they didn't change the recipe too much
The cans of max cat hunter's stew with duck went over very well...

PetCo has all the pouches now...
My little pouch addicts shared a Senior pouch last night and cleaned their bowls until they sparkled.

There is wheat gluten in the senior pouch..
I wonder if I should be concerned.
I hope that Nutro is staying on top of their imports.

My PetSmart had the cans a few weeks ago (I don't know if those ever left? I got my cat after the pet food scare) and just now got the pouches in. They only had the complete care pouches but my PetCo has the indoor cat ones. I love the price too.

Thanks. Maybe I'll grab a pouch or 2 the next time I'm out. We tried the Max gourmet ones when they came out, but since they were in the recall I wonder if that's why my cats wouldn't touch them. (We had a few things that were recalled, and I remember being baffled as to why they wouldn't even lick the gravy before the recalls were announced)

I bought a months worth of Natural Choice cans because they were on sale for 39 cents. One of my cats won't touch the food and the others eat it but not all of their serving. I did see carrots in their stew formula and carrots are not listed on the label. Change in formula?

Will you keep us updated about Nutro's pouch manufacturing?
I still retain some residual fear left over from our experience with the recalled pouches from last march.
I will never forget that date...March 17th 2007.
As you know, Dexter & Sadie were affected but I will say that Nutro treated us fairly.

My babies are so much happier when they have at least some pouch food per day.
They cleaned their dishes again last night, then played like little kittens.

I now have severe doubts with this company. I have found carrots and potatoes in the stew canned and neither of them are listed in the ingredients and one my cats (Veeshan) 3 times out of 6 feedings she has thrown up the food. Plus Willow will not touch this food not even one lick. I just don't trust this company and feel their quality control is not good. I will not buy any Nutro products again.

HAVE YOU called???? I would ... it could be a labelling lag as many foods have ...

Those throwing up here are two ideas... One they ate the gravey very fast and not the meat.... two they are allergic to wheat... Just some common issues with pouched foods I have found

Dexter and Sadie immediately knew what the pouches were and did the kitty freak out, I want that food dance.
They love them as much as before.

However, this time, they will be eating the pouch food along with other types of wet food.
I never want them to become fixated on chunks & gravy again.
