Chewy emailed me today that my order will be delayed and they'll send me more info later. 🙄 I do have a stock on hand since I got to the other stores but they won't last long. I feel like my once monthly shop is now nearly weekly just to stay on top of things

I am sorry that it is getting more challenging getting all the cat food you need. I try to shop once a week to staying ahead of the curb since I feed a load of outdoor kitties. These are uncertain times and you just can't take chances. My Sis just got a big Amazon cat food order in the other day and had no problem (no delays or shortages). I ordered a case last week with no problems as well. Maybe you want to check it out. I wish you well. Hang in there. 🙂

Had to go back to Meijer's to pick up a prescription and had to stop down the street at Petco for cat litter, so I checked at both. Meijer had lots of cat food in various brands, while Petco had most brands, but some empty spots on the shelves. Even so, one should be able to find what's needed at Petco.

Situation is about the same as last week.

Thanks for posting that V vince . I went to my local Supermarket (which is A Regional Chain in the North East) and the cat food aisle was practically decimated. I lucked out and got the last case of Friskies (32 cans) and five individual cans.

The supermarket was very busy for a week day. I wanted to speak to someone who worked there to see when the next cat food order was coming in, but once again they were busy. What I think is happening and I am hoping that is the case is that these are shoppers from their sister store two towns over that recently closed. Still, the cat food aisle was looking bad before that other store's closing. So I am not 100 percent sure about this.

Anyway, here is a pic I took today from the cat food aisle. I was very lucky that I walked away with anything at all. 🙂

I Saw today a online advertisement From Walmart . That pet food was in short supply. I generally Buy Blue Buffalo Wildness from Chewy . I do purchase My Cat litter from Walmart though. I try too keep 4 or 5 jugs of litter on hand at all times as I have 2 litter boxes. I feed both Hairball control Chicken dry And Red meat canned.

Thank you. I thought things were improving for a while, but we may very well be going into another round of shortages.

Yes, do stay stocked up. We just don't know how long these shortages will last. Feel free to post here anytime. 🙂

I feel for you all going through this. We had empty pet food shelves in 2020 in the UK which turned me to online ordering. Things are mostly back to normal now, except my online order was more than a week late over Christmas/New Year (typical).
The company has now put up notices on the website explaining that they are experiencing delivery delays of about 4 days, so as soon as my late order finally arrived - I put in another order straight away, just in case.

When it comes to our fur family, just the idea of not having any food for them is too stressful.

I hope you all get through this. Thinking of you. :redheartpump:

Did some running around this morning to get what would normally have been one-stop shopping (we have "people food" shortages too). Kroger and two independent grocers all had cat food shelves full to the scuppers, although Kroger's seems to have reduced their shelf space for wet food.

Cat food shortages seem to be continuing to improve around here.
