not actually canned, but i feed mine meow mix pouches and the occasional can of friskies. we are very limited in what we can find here, and that is the best i can find ingredientwise in this area.

Evanger's Holistic Pheasant for Leo, Wellness Turkey and Salmon for Gracie. Also, I JUST found this out, so I'm posting it all over, but if you're into conscious shopping and/or you care, Merrick gives significant monetary support to Republicans. Just FYI.

Used to feed Merrick, but the pet store doesn't carry it anymore & I haven't gotten around to ordering any online. Right now, Twitch & Lily live on Nutro pouches, a little Eukanuba(for variety), Eagle Pack that Twitch doesn't like that much, an occaisonal can of Felidae, the only kind of Wellness they will eat is Turkey & something, & a few cans of Newman's Own. By far, their favorite canned food is Solid Gold mixed with Tuna. I can't remember exactly what it is, but it is Solid Gold canned food with some tuna chunks mixed in with it.

What do you all think of Iams? My vet recommened Iams or Eukauba, but said they're both made by the same company. My two love Iams.

MERRICK's: Ginger's favorite formulas:

New England Boil - This delicious and traditional dish from our friends in New England is loaded with flavor and big on taste. We love this one of a kind seafood treat we like to call our version of a New England Boil. Nothing beats this pot full of treasures from the sea as we combine the great taste of White Fish, Lobster, Crab, Shrimp and Sardines all mixed together in this special recipe. We then add in the freshness of Red Jacket New Potatoes, Fresh Carrots, Fresh Snow Peas and Fresh Red Delicious Apples to top off this regional favorite.


Turducken - This gourmet dish has been favored by the southern society of felines for years and its no secret as to why. The exquisite pairings of turkey, duck and chicken lay hiding in every sensational bite. As if this wasn’t enough, this sensational trio is complimented with farm grown sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and savory cranberries.


Southern Delight - This delicious dish offers a classic medley of plenty of Chicken, Cat Fish and Craw Fish to boot. We sprinkle these tasty vittles of protein with fresh Carrots, fresh Zucchini and fresh Granny Smith Apples which are sure to take your cats dinning experience to the pinnacle of culinary delight.

And,


Natural Balance is also a great food for your kittys.

I rotate between the following:

California Natural
Eagle Pack
Felidae (much to their chagrin, they don't like it all that much)
Innova
Merrick (as a special treat)
Nutro (sometimes)
Pet Guard
Precise
Spot's Stew

I was feeding Wellness cans, but the price keeps going up, and up, and up, while my budget remains very tight.

I recently found some Nature's Recipe Julienne cut lamb canned food that has pretty good ingredients for 39 cents/ 5.5 oz can at Big Lots. It looks like the company has changed the formula and is clearancing out the old cans. The new formula includes soy, while the old formula (the kind on clearance that we bought) is soy-free. I tried a can for Felixia (sensitive tummy) and it went over well, so we bought about a hundred cans. That, combined with their dry food, should last the 3 of them a while. I'm not sure what I'll do when it runs out, though.

Oreo is on Eukanuba prescription diet.

Mine only get like a heaping tablespoon/day. I go the inexpensive route-a local chain in WI carries Sprout they have either a chicken or fish and a case of the large size cans is $9.84. (The herd isn't fussy!!)

Our cats love Merricks Thanksgiving Dinner and Granny's Pot Pie but refuse to touch any of the above flavours. Anything with fish is a no-no for them.

Dori eats Merrick- Thanksgiving Day Dinner, Grammy's Pot Pie, Turducken, and Cowboy Cookout. She also enjoys their new flavor Ocean Breeze, but my local store doesn't carry it.

We live in a small town and our store doesn't carry Merricks either, but the owner will order it in just for me if I buy in bulk, i.e., I buy 3 cases at a time - one each of the flavours they like. She doesn't charge me any more than the local Pet Valu and it's 5 blocks from home versus going to the next town to get my pet food.

Oops, I meant they don't carry that new flavor. They carry all of the others.

Oh boy, I feed so many, it's hard to list! i'm trying all kinds of new foods right now. I find they HATE Felidae....and I hate the smell of it! I tried Spot's Stew on them (someone gave me a can to try) and they hated it too, good thing though cuz it has garlic in it...
They like:
Merrick's (not really the fishy ones)
Nutro (any)
California Natural (any)
Natural Balance (any)
Eagle Pack (salmon and turkey I think, pink label)

Nothing at the moment. It gives my desexed white male a sore stomach.

I go to the pet store and buy one of every kind of Nutro Adult that they have (not the indoor or hairball formulas... just Gourmet Classics and Complete Care). They're big enough that I can't split a can of kitten between the two, but there's enough in the adult size cans that Rowan doesn't just scarf it all down and leave poor Bella with just the scraps.

Before they (well, really just Rowan) got so big, I'd feed them a can of Fancy Feast (they liked any flavor, as long as it was all ground up) every now and then.

I feed the babies Nutro Maxcat Kitten Ocean Fish and Chicken and Liver. The big kitties split a can of Nutro adult ocean fish and rice or shrimp and salmon. I was ready to order that Chicken Soup For the Soul food for them to try, but my vet advised against it. She wants me to stick with "the bigger brand names" I have been trying to figure out what is best for them but gosh.....there are so many choices.

jnnfr

read the labels ... I happen to think alot of chn soup in the canned form ( the dry is good but i put it with Nutro max since it is less meat more grain) ... chn soup is part of diamond which is a fairly big company..
