wet meow mix healthy goodness?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
My neighbors got this stuff for our cats when we were gone and the boys seem to really like it. The ingredients seem good too. Is this a good food? It's expensive though ($7 for a 12 pack and we'd have to feed them about a 12 pack a day) so if we fed it it'd be an occasional like one week a month thing for them.

It was shredded though just how Riggs likes it, Chaos doesn't really like it so shredded but he's tolerating it (which means he really likes it).

What are the ingredients? I've never been a big fan of Meow Mix.

Wow. I haven't paid any attention to grocery store brands in a long time, as it was always more of the same. I'll have to take a look next time I'm at the pet store.

it didn't list the ingredients on the website but I took a quick look on the tub today and I didn't see any by-products or gluten. I was amazed and even more amazed both my boys like it! Usually one will love something and the other will hate it.

Just watch as some have by products and gluten( gluten is not bad but most avoid it as it can ba an allergen

I've been watching for it at our local stores, but haven't seen it yet. I'm excited since one of my cats loves his MM pouches.

the neighbors got the boys the chicken variety pack. It's got chicken, chicken and beef, and I think chicken and turkey. I didn't see it in any of those but will double check. I know my boys prefer chicken so I probably wouldn't venture into any other varieties.

I haven't seen this one yet at the stores here. I'll have to watch for it. It's so weird that the site gives the nutritional analysis, but not the ingredients. Is it as fish heavy as the normal Meow Mix tubs?

Okay I was a bit confused at first (need more coffee ). I now see that WHOLESOME GOODNESS is a new line by Meow Mix (at least new to me). The dry looks just as low-quality as their old dry, but the wet looks promising. I'll be on the lookout for this!

my boys both seem to like it. I will probably keep this in their lineup somewhere though.
post #17 of 28
Princess loves her Meow Mix Cluck a Doodle DOO but I have to put it in my little food proceesor with a little water to get it to a consistency that she likes. This is the only wet food she will eat so its worth the extra effort.
post #18 of 28
Where are you all finding the wet meow mix sans fish broth? all the wet I find are with fish broth? Please do tell! Thanks

My cats have decided the "Wholesome Goodness" cups are gross. They still like the pouches best.

Target is the only place I've seen them here. Not even Petsmart had them.
post #22 of 28
wow! thanks, I will check target. Petco, Petsmart, and Walmart had the other version.
post #23 of 28
I have only seen them at Target. They seem kinda pricey, I think it was about .79 cents or so for 2.5oz.

Especially when they snub it. The flavors I bought were barely touched. Our shelter is getting the remainder of the multipack I bought.
post #26 of 28
They just put these on the shelves at my local shop rite. I just bought one and the kitties are enjoying it right now. I wish it wasn't 99 cents a tub though! They love meow mix cups, but sometimes they eat all the gravy and leave the meat bits. So, these new cups are great, because they are shredded.

Meow mix wet is pretty decent in both ingredients and price. I don't have a problem feeding it to them daily as long as they have a high quality dry food (which they do). Plus, I give them a better wet brand (mostly halo and fromm) once a week.

My 3 cats get canned food twice daily, and they did not like the MM tub food. They do like the MM pouches, however. Go figure!
post #28 of 28
I got one of the little tubs on Saturday- Kara turned her nose up at it but Kirby scarfed the whole thing down. They are 99 cents each at my grocery store!
