Some of the Cats in the Kitchen cans are slimy. Or maybe "gelatinous" is the best word!I was also thinking this and just tonight I got our first can -- can let you know those are EQUALLY slimy! Re: carbier: I started to create a table of flavors because, while adorable, the names are confusing. There are 5 (I think) Chicken pates. One of the chicken pates CHANGES NAMES when it is in a can or in a pouch. GOOD gracious! But having started to read labels, the newer ones appear to omit the potato starch & sunflower oil, it seems. They might keep the older ones because it may be a bunch of cats are attached to that older formulation (?) The only one we can't get the boy (who is a trashcan) to eat is the lamb & mackerel. I don't eat shrimp, so the shrimp one made me gag -- be he chucked it down his chuck hole.
And yes, some of their foods seem similar in can and pouch but aren't, which is tricky if (like us!) you have a cat who can't eat potato. Some of their expensive foods that are otherwise really good have potato.
Apparently some cats don't like lamb. Ours don't seem to mind eat... and even like it in some foods, including some Weruva BFF foods, like a chicken/lamb pouch in the OMG series, the ones with more tapioca (because gravy) that our picky cat (of course!) loves but only gets occasionally these days.
