This will probably be easier math-wise for people who feed canned or raw - but I'm interested in all perspectives including those who feed dry. How much do you spend per cat per day?
As it stands right now - based on a 30 day month - I am spending $.74 per cat per day.
3 cans per day x 30 days = 90 cans
60 cans (2 meals/day) Sophistacat at .36 per can = 21.60
30 cans (1 meal/day) high end grain-free at avg price 1.50 per can = 45.00
21.60+45.00=66.60 (total spent per month)
66.60/30 days = 2.22 per day for 3 cats
2.22/3 cats = .74 per day per cat
However, Sophistacat is by-product based and that's why it's dirt cheap. I am trying to transition away from this for health and nutrition reasons and am trying to figure out what a reasonable amount is so I don't overpay for grain-free online. I currently have an order in my cart at PFD for a couple brands of 95% foods and the cost with shipping is 1.14 per cat per day. That seems okay but I'm not sure and it also doesn't include any Wellness which would skew the price up. I've mostly been a "stop by Petsmart and pick up a 1-week supply on my way home" cat food shopper so I'm interested in buying bulk/online/deals to cut costs (vs. buying in-store, not vs. what I pay now obviously) and need some perspective.
