Hi everyone, hope your week is off to a good start.

The last time I posted around here was for support during my cat’s palliative time right up until her euthanization.Two years later and I adopted a mom and her kitten:)

I’ve only ever fed Wellness wet food on my vet’s recommendation about 17 years ago. They get a bit of wet food in the morning and evening and free feed a set amount of Royal Canin Fibre Response dry food. My cats are fine with Wellness but it’s beginning to break the bank.

The pet store I use suggested Canada Fresh or Merrick as alternatives. Does anyone else have suggestions?

There is a cat food deals thread that gives heads up to specials online and in stores. Worth keeping an eye on the thread, as you may be able to pick up deals.
I tend to rotate a few foods at a time and include Wellness.
What variety do you feed as they have a few in their wet food range.

Do you buy the big 13.5 oz cans? That's what I feed and use a lid saver to last for several meals. I've found it a pretty decent deal that way rather than the smaller cans.

I don't have suggestions for other brands, just the way to get the most for your money with Wellness.

Merrick is just as pricey as Wellness, if not more for some flavors. I just watch for sales and stock up.

Merrick and Wellness chicken options have looked and smelled the same to me but I haven't compared labels or prices. I've only ever bought either when I have found them on clearance.
