Meow mix wet

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I am wondering how many people feed meow mix wet food. And if you don't, would you?? Aslo, is anyone aware of any recalls from meow mix? If so does it get recalled often?

My cat loves it, it's a little less expensive than California Natural and EVO. He has become very picky with his wet food and tends to like meow mix better. He also gets California Natural dry food, which he loves.
TIA

I do not use it because I was told its no good by a Vet.
It was on the recall list like most of the foods were.

Hmm...I don't remember Meow Mix ever being recalled.

A plus point is that they don't contain by-products.
Minus point is they're primarily fish, which isn't considered ideal for cats. Also, many flavors contain wheat gluten, which can be viewed as a questionable ingredient after the Menu Foods recall.

I feed the "Market Selects" cups, Salmon & Crab Meat and Tuna & Whole Shrimp (no gluten in those) as part of Wally's wet food rotation, in addition to Wellness dry food.

I think they are a decent food. I'm pretty sure they weren't recalled either. There are some varieties that don't have wheat gluten in them.
We use them about once a week.

Meow Mix dry isn't very good.

The wet is OK. It's very fishy, so I have to watch who gets it here.

I feed my cats the pouches. It's not awful by any means, but they are high in fish content if that is a concern (I think it can be an issue for cats that are prone to UTIs, not sure why that is though). I am not as picky about wet food as I am dry food. It's important that the cat eats the wet food, afterall My cats don't like any of the grain-free wet foods. You are feeding a high quality dry food and that is great. There aren't any byproducts in Meow Mix, which I like.

The only thing is that there aren't as many calories in the cups or pouches, so you have to feed a lot more and that just makes the price go up. When I feed my cats the Meow Mix pouches, I give them a little extra dry food to make up for the difference.

I can get a box of 12 of the pouches for about $4.50 at Wal-Mart, which isn't bad at all.

Meow Mix dry food is awful, but the wet food is fine.

I misread the wet part.
I was talking about the dry food.

Foods heavy in fish can be a problem for UTI prone cats as fish is high in magnesium, which is thought to contribe to UTIs.

i'd consider the cups, pouches & the newest variety [Wholesome Goodness] acceptable [except for the fish content] but they're also [at least, the new ones] easily as expensive as the wet i feed - which is fish free.

We use it occasionally, I wouldn't make it a regular part of anyone's diet because they are so fishy. I do buy it from time to time because it is available at the supermarket & target and it sometimes goes on sale.

I feed them the pouches. they love them. Other food just gets wasted if I put it out. My cats are weird though, they can all share one pouch per meal...they just don't eat any more than that. My cat sitter was suprised when I told her and she saw it for the first time.

I feed Nutro Maxx dry food. they like to eat a combo of dry and wet so it works for me. I am not too concerned with the fishiness of the food as I have not had issues with UTI's, if I do I will switch. For now, they are happy and so am I.

Same here. We've tried non-fish wets, maybe 25-30 different brands/flavors...he likes one beef-liver food but won't eat it everyday . He gets chicken dry food and fresh chicken breast for a snack (yet refuses any canned chicken ).

I feed my cat 2 flavors of the "Market Select" ones in the tubs, not really because I want to, but because it's the only wet food I could get her to eat consistently after her spell of anorexia last year. I'm starting to look into some other options though, because it makes her breath rank and I've been finding more and more bones (and bigger ones) in it as time goes on.

I was until Nabu stopped eating them a couple months ago. My other 2 don't like any of the Meow Mix wet.

I gave Hennessy a couple of the wholesome goodness ones a while back when we ran out of his good wet food and I couldn't get across town for it.

He didn't seem much impressed and the dog ate the rest and it made her very sick (vomiting, lethargic). So no more wholesome goodness in this house.

I've tried both the pouches and the Market Selects in various flavors with my crew and no one seems to like them much.

I feed Princess the Meow Mix packets because thats the only wet food she will eat. She eats a packet a day plus her dry food.

I feed the meow mix wholesome goodness Turkey and the grilled chicken
a couple times a week. She does not like the meow mix cups - too fishy
which I am glad. It offers variety in wet for me since she mostly
wants fancy feast pate flavors, chicken mostly.

I split a cup of the meow mix wet food between my girls every day in addition to their dry food. I only feed them the fishy flavors because I cannot stomach the smell of the other flavors.
