what flavor and easy on the tummy do most kitties take at first offering? pouch or can and also what best brand to go with?

It really depends on kitty's needs. If there is a certain brand, I don't know what to tell ya.

I've have my two on Purina One kibbles, and Gourmet Gold, and Petite Pate wet food which is in tins.

They love it because theres over 70% fish and meat in it compared to the cheaper brands.

Well then I am a bad parent. I just gave it to them. They dont seem to have a problem with it..digestion and all, and they are going potty normally.

No you aren't. I didn't go too slowly, either. It's just that most people recommend it because some cats are different and have more sensitive tummys.

i never fed my kitten wet food, i got her when she was 5 weeks old and the vet had my give her science diet kitten food, it's dry food, but she does great with it, tried wet food and she didn't like it at all, in fact the only cat i have that did like it was the stray we brought home, but i think after living out of dumpsters he will probably eat anything all cats are different though, my sister in law bought a 10 lb. bag of cat food (meow mix) and she gave it to me because her cats got sick from it, but my cat eats it and won't eat anything else

sounds like trial and error, i'll start with chicken based and see what happens.

My concern is that you had been feeding raw.. so i would start with cooked meat mixed with raw and then gradually go to the canned that is mostly meat( most higher end is or has rice or wheat to keep it together) then try pouches...

What raw meat had you been feeding?? start with that cooked and then read the labels ... see canned cat food usually has 3-5 meats in the can..hth

both of my cats eat raw and dry, but i'm having problem with the 3 month old one, i would just like to feed him dry and occasional wet food, he doesn't eat much raw to begin with anyway, i feed them raw chicken and bones with organs, i can mix that slowly with wet food and hoping he'll take it, thanks for the advice.

All I can add is this link to an interesting article on hypoallergenic carbs for cats and dogs, click here ,
and I would say that you might want to consider options such as Steve's Real-Foods Freeze Dried for Cats:click here or if you wish a simple, plain, nothing added, quality meat canned try Wysongs All Meat Variety Pack or try Active Life if you can find it - a minimally processed whole-food canned food that I adore.

hth,

They do make dog food as well, problem is they lost their canning facility, and until they build a new one (the plan last they told me), what's left is simply what you can find in higher end stores and online. Here is their website, it lists all their products and the products full ingredients list, plus they have a store locator (both brick and mortar and online).

hth!
