20 miles? Thats not terrible, but if you live in the sticks Im guessing there is zero to nothing to do on that 20 mile journey
You MIGHT want to consider mail order, it may be cheaper.
But yea, Nature's Variety is a great company, they are famous for their raw products (they sell it frozen in store, or freeze dried).
Over the years they moved into wet, then dry.http://www.naturesvariety.com/instinct_cat_can
Their 95% Instinct products only downfall is
a) it has whole flaxseeds, from what I have read these are useless and maybe MAYBE harmfull (completely subjective medical blog opinion). Humans and cats get EPA fatty acids from the oil, the little ammount of oil in a single seed is pointless.
b) It has a high caloric number just like grain free dry (Chicken is 220 calories, lamb is 260, vet says both my cats should max on 160 calories), although calories, Evo seems to be about the same.
c) Their rabbit product, my kitties favorite is made from Chinese rabbits. Not a total deal breaker, but with the US economy the way it is(Buy American!), and Food as dangerous as it is in ALL countries I was a bit mad when I found out this fact from Sharky.
Merrick's is marketed as "Low Glycemic" and grain free, it is both of them, at only 150 calories, Merricks is the cheapest in price, lowest caloric wet food I know of.
(as far as price, I get cases for less than 24$ (maybe 22.99)http://www.merrickpetcare.com/store/...at_food_55.php
Wellness Core Cans, is a new product from a well known company.
Wellness is now carried at Petco, although I have not yet seen their "Core" line (means grain free) of wet in that store yet, but expect it soon as it just came out.http://www.wellnesspetfood.com/cat_w...e_chicken.html
So anyways, enough ranting, call up your store and ask if they can order for you.
My store will order me anything I want (as long as their distributor carries it) and what is awesome and hillarious, is they beat the manufacture's direct prices!
I can get Food cheaper through my shop than ordering directly from Merricks or Evangers (another organic company, but not grain free).
I was hoping Sharky would stop in and answer the question for me, "Are Evo and Instinct similar in smell and consistency?"
Regardless what I will do is order a case of EVO chicken for kitty and hope she loves it. Worst case I end up with 20 cans I will feed to my friend's dogs....
