Hmmm, that stinks. I asked mine about Orijen and they heard of it but can't get it. I went into a PetSmart in London, and they didn't have any of the 3 brands (TOTW, CS, or Orijen).

To the OP:
|My question is should I switch to a cheaper brand and if so what brand is almost as good quality for a less price?
If you find that $60/bag is too expensive for you, then yes, switch to a cheaper brand. TOTW is a cheaper food ($40) and a much better food than the Max Cat IMHO.
