OK, I just had to do a petco run because my two cats were out of dry food. We adopted them Sept. 1st - a mama cat and her kitten from a rescue organization. When we got them, they were on a specific can food and dry food and I've just maintained that, but recently switched off the kitten food to regular indoor cat food of the same brand. Well, the cats are eating less and less of the wet food. They just don't seem to like it very much, but they LOVE the dry food, but it's so expensive. a 3.5 lbs bag costs 15.99!!! So, where I'm stupid. We had an old cat that died early this summer and he was always super finicky about food. He wouldn't eat food that was "stale" which also meant, any container of food larger than the 3.5 lbs bag and he would turn his nose up at it after a couple pounds of it - EVEN when we were storing it in air tight containers. BUT... that doesn't mean THESE cats are that finicky! I just looked and that SAME food comes in a 15 lbs bag and that costs $38... so for the same weight - $75 or $38!!! I have been paying DOUBLE what I should have been paying!!! OMG!!! I then thoought, well, i'll need a container to hold the big bag, but that container paid for itself with the INITIAL BAG OF CAT FOOD! How could I have been so stupid??? And I always comparison shop! UGH!! Now, my question: with our older cat, we were told dry food diet was best, but now I'm reading and the suggest an all wet diet, or at least a mix of the two because otherwise they don't tend to drink enough... but what if my cats BEG for the dry???? I have tried different flavors of the Dick Patton canned foods and they seem to feel the same about it - a few nibbles and then leave the rest. Do I switch brands? or just skip the wet food? I'm not going to keep spending over a dollar a day on a canned food they leave half uneaten.
