    Saw them for .62 cents they use to be .54 but that is a huge jump and living on SSDI. I can manage but if my cat get sick I count on my leftover for a month so I don't buy alot for myself maybe 98 cents fabric 4-5.

    She eats two cans a day I guess that is her limit. I wonder what else is good without messing up her digestive tract

    What about Friskies classic pate? It does have rice in it though.

    Do you shop at Target? They run deals for x amount off of x amount spent like $10 off of $40 where you can use it on your cat food unless they brand is excluded (usually Blue Buffalo type stuff exclusions)

    I don't live near target I have to ride a bus but it cost me 20 dollars total to go to Target. I can still buy her fancy feast but if housing increase it be bad my rent went up 50. I now need to find cheap internet cause it's how i pay bills even medical bills so I won't waste a bus fare

    If you can order online, Amazon and Chewy both have Friskies multipacks for reasonable still. Chewy also has Tiny Tiger that is $12.99 for a 24 pack.

    Do you have a Tractor Supply or Aldi nearby? Their Fancy Feast knockoffs are reasonable and comparable (last I checked at any rate).

    My cat prefers the Tractor Supply Paws N Claws Kitchen Selects to Fancy Feast believe it or not. They are 52 cents each around me. Worth at least trying or even using a couple times a week to help reduce the cost of the Fancy Feast!

    Most store generic brand of pate foods are similar to Fancy Feast and cost less. Can you try that? What stores are you able to get to?

    Wal Mart's Special Kitty brand is very similar to Fancy Feast. Give that a try :)

    One chewy-dot-com, there is a brand called Tiny Tiger. It is basically a knockoff of Fancy Feast. The individual cans are around $0.51 each. They come in packs of 24.

    Chewy has a buy one, get one free deal on them right now! So it would be a great time to see if your kitties take a liking to it. If they do not, contact Chewy and they will refund your money and tell you to donate the leftover cans to your local shelter. :)

    Just the teeny 3 oz cans. Gourmet? I'm not sure what they call them. The bigger cans are more like Friskies than FF.

    Yeah, try the small 3 oz cans of Tractor Supply brand, Walmart brand, and maybe your local grocery store brand. They're all very similar to Fancy Feast and usually cheaper.

    Oh, and Petsmart has a similar store brand too, if there's a Petsmart nearby.

    We have tried SK. Nothing like FF. My cats would not touch it.

    The Tractor Supply "Kitchen Selects" pates are a lot like Fancy Feast but I think they're higher quality: the byproducts are further down in the ingredients plus they don't have synthetic vitamin K. Our cats aren't enthusiastic about the Kitchen Selects, though they will eat them.
