    My cat wont eat wellness CORE! Help!

    Hi Pumaaa and Welcome to TCS! Cats are funny creatures and if the food does not smell like "food" to them, they will not eat it. When transitioning food, and I assume this is kibble you are talking about here, it's best to do it gradually and preferably over the course of a couple of weeks...

    Cold Turkey food switch?

    Vball and Ritz are on target here. Switiching wet foods is not a big of an issue but it's always recommended transitioning dry formulas slowly... up to two weeks. :nod:

    Costco's new adult forumula cat food

    It is entirely possible your male cat did not drink enough water to hydrate himself causing the crystal build up and/or obstruction. This type of issue is fairly common in cats that are fed an all kibble diet when the cat is not drinking enough water. Of course, genetics can play a role in...

    Can't afford premium cat food anymore. Help!

    The guidelines are meant to use as a starting point and it is really just a guideline. If the cat is leaving some of it after every meal, gradually reduce the amount you feed. If the cat is losing weight, add more with each feeding. The guidelines are meant to give the pet owner an idea of...

    Can't afford premium cat food anymore. Help!

    Be sure to check the Fancy Feast Classics. They are nearly 1/2 the price of some of the premiums and the ingredient list is not bad at all. It's a good buy on a budget and if you watch the sales at the Petstores and search for coupons online or in the newspapers you can usually find an...

    Friskies vs. Fancy Feast Classic?

    Yep :yeah: All of the responses here have been good ones. Not all cat food is equal in ingredients, nutrition, protein etc., even if they are in the same price range. The advice I'll give on top of the others is to research the brands you feel will fit in with your budget, do a comparison and...

    why does my cat eat less then the feeding guidelines?

    Of course you are entitled to your "opinion" :D That said, if you notice your animal losing weight, or gaining weight, what do you do? They are "guidelines", plain and simple. It's up to the pet owner to use their own judgment on how and when to portion the food. The pet food companies are...

    Why don't companies make more 5.5oz cans??

    Most consumers find the larger cans inconvenient. It has far more to do with consumer satisfaction than "profit". Most consumers have only 1 or 2 cats in the household and the larger cans equate waste to them and they really don't want to fool around with can lids, foil etc. Then there are...

    Is Macdonald's as nutritional for cats as dry cat food?!

    My first cat, Hoot (now 16) was only about 5 weeks old or so when I rescued her. She had been eating human food apparently, until she was thrown from a car window. She survived the surgery had dived right into wet cat food. There was no trouble with transitioning her either. I'm guessing it...
