I'll have to have a look when I get to M&S over the weekend! Is it similar to Feline Fayre?

Are they big tins or tray ones?

I can see the M&S are going to have a bit of a run on their cat food! Better be quick, Sar, before I buy up all the manchester stock to add to the huge stockpile of cat food I already have!

Imagine a large tin of tuna, their that size. They have a seafood platter, crab, sardine and pilchard.

Seriously, Rosie and Sophie go crackers when i open one of those tins

*phones M&S to inform them not to sell them to you!* Thay're not going to know whaat's hit them!

I'm sure we all probably have more cat food in the house than human food!

I understand now, I hope my four will like it - although I expect Tibby's fish aversion will come to a head again!

I don't have my kitten yet, but this forum has been a blessing and a great source for information. I have bought a bag of James Wellbeloved dry kitten food, and had already bought whiskas kitten wet food. I am hopefully going to change the wet food but will see how I go with my kitten - hopefully he/she wont be a fussy eater!!!

Both felix and whiskas do free kitten packs which include pouches of food, a toy and some info. I got given the whiskas one from my vet (and also got one from the breeder's vet) but requested a felix one online. I fed Mosi the whiskas but it made him fart a lot so no more whiskas for him! felix have recently sent me an update booklet and a voucher for £1 off any box of felix pouches as a result.

Incidentally - if anyone feeds, or is interested in feeding, natures menu pouches - I don't know if everyone knows about the special offer in pets at home (it's not marked up in my store). You can buy packs of 4 boxes (total 48 pouches) for £15.99, but you can get 2 of them for £19.99 - the offer doesn't come up until you put them through the till. It works out at about 20p a pouch which is really good for premium wet food. It's only on the adult though, not the kitten variety.

At the moment I feed my kittens chicken & fish but i'm slowly putting them onto whiskas kitten wet food.
My older cats like whiskas,felix & hi life but they also get fed alot of fresh fish & meat - they get really spoilt.

Ah yes, good old m&S - I bought some of that for Villy last year and she loved it!

My two love it!. It's more expensive than the hi life but it's a bigger tin, but the chunks of fish are huge, and it's in a lobster jelly if you please!

These two eat better than me sometimes
Me too!!!

I have been ordering samples of food over the past few weeks, Royal Canin, James Wellbeloved and Hills have sent me dry food samples. I am waiting on wet food samples from whiskas and felix!

I am thinking of buying some hi life or natures menu wet kitten food. Could I combine this with the whiskas kitten, in order to use up the pouches I have bought already?

yes its actually best to gradually introduce a new food mixing it with the old. should be fine! just do a spoon full of the new with a packet of the old and gradually add more new and less old. do it over a month to get rid of the old.

Thanks!

I can't wait till I get my kitten....

I have only just noticed this thread!! I feed mine HiLife for wet - Ginger gets the complete pate's, as he can't eat a lot of biscuits (he has no teeth, and drops them a lot), the girls have the pouches. Ginger and Tom have senior James Wellbeloved biscuits as they need to lose weight, the girls have HiLife biscuits, and I have agreed to buy biscuits for my fosters too, as I can get 2kg of HiLife biscuits for £6.99. The fosters get Whiskas or Arthurs for wet though, as I can't afford to feed them all on HiLife, but they do get anything mine wont eat, and they are going to start getting raw chunks of meat once a month. I did look at the M & S food at X Mas cos I had some vouchers, but didn't want to get them started on more expensive food!! Plus Ginger doesnt like fishy foods, and Tom can't have them cos of his cystitis. I have bought Feline Fayre for the fosters though, those and the HiLife tins are a good treat at a good price.

Does anyone know of any websites which are reasonably priced for their wet kitten food?

Thanks

you could try something like this at first before you go and buy loads. a kitten won't eat a whole can or pouch in one go usually! http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/cats/c...e/kitten/30044

these are a few places that sell once you find what you want.

this is where i get my Royal Canin stuff: www.vetuk.co.uk

I'm pretty sure that you can get Burns "real food for cats" in the UK, through your vets - it is excellent, high quality, cruelty-free and about half the price of Hill's science diet. My cats enjoy it.

Your vet might be able to give you sample packs - that's how we tried it out before you decided to commit.

I don't know if they do wet food - this is kibble. So if you are part feeding dry, I definately recommend looking into it.

we can get burns over here - I recently posted the ingredients to see what people thought, and the concensus (sp??) was that the grain content was too high, so I didnt change mine over to it. You can ring them up and get free samples though. I personally prefer HiLife and JWB dry - I can get HiLife for the same price as Burns, not as high meat content, but not as high in grains either.
