But as of now, I am paying for all of the formulas, kitten foods, and related supplies I use to nurse the kittens back to health, and help find homes for them. At the moment, every cent I spend still comes out of my own pocket, even though our town has finally gotten a 501-C rescue, which is still (now at first) devoting most of their efforts to the feral (Trap, Neuter, Spay) effort to stop the over-breeding of homeless cats, but not all of the babies.
I personally purchase / buy cases and cases of canned kitten foods out of my own pocket, .... all "stages", all "ages" and I try to buy all sizes of cans, and as many well-known brands as possible, to tend to each litter of kittens and their special needs.
When a kitten is adopted, one of the biggest worries is that the new family won't feed something the kitten will eat, so I buy (and feed) an assortment of different foods to the kittens to help insure their success in their new home.
I have no idea how many cases of this food I have purchased, some grain-free, some for weaning new kittens, small cans for tiny kittens, and larger cans for bigger litters.
I recently noticed that the kittens weren't eating one specific food (( INSTINCT )), and were CONSISTENTLY leaving it in the dishes. Upon repeated inspection, I realized it was one specific food that the kittens weren't consuming. The food *looked different* from the other canned / wet foods because it had a 'grey-colored sheen' and the odor was not that of a typical canned food.
I don't know what's different, but for some reason, my kittens are rejecting this food. I live in TX, where its been unusually cool this past week, but I have been unable to imagine why the kittens would reject / avoid one specific brand of food. I have even wondered if it has been previously accidentally frozen or undergone an unknown chemical change. When choosing which foods to buy, I tried to read the reviews and choose wisely to stretch each dollar.
I so wish I could give this food a super 5-Star rating, ... but none of my babies of all backgrounds and all ages are willing to eat this food. I'm truly sorry that I can't honestly recommend this food !! I had ordered several cases of different sized cans, ...... and I would donate what I have left, ....but if my poor orphaned babies won't eat it, ... I don't think the ''high-brow'' kittens would eat it either.
Please buy at least one or two cans from a pet store ...and try it out on your kitten before you order it by the case!!!
As a new cat mom I was blissfully unaware of the high percentage of cats that have some kind of mouth problem. Apparently, it's like 80% or something, yikes! During a vet visit my vet told me that my kitten had stomatitis (severe inflammation of the gums) and would likely need tooth extractions in the future. I certainly can't afford the thousands of dollars it would cost to do that, so I started researching and learned that some cats showed improvement after a diet change. I was currently feeding dry store-brand kibble, so I figured I'd give diet change a try. A bit of research on high quality cat foods led me to the Instinct brand which I purchased. Initially, I mixed the dry food with the canned food to see if I could stretch the food supply, but my kitten's gums remained inflamed even with daily tooth brushing. Eventually, I started feeding only canned and that combined with daily tooth brushing completely cleared the inflammation. I'd also like to add that I tried a store brand canned food for a few days when I ran out of Instinct and didn't order more ahead of time and the inflammation came back, so it's not just a canned vs dry food issue. It's my belief that my kitten was either allergic to the ingredients in the store-brand cat food or was experiencing a micro-nutrient deficiency leading to his inflammation. Whatever the issue was, it certainly wasn't a matter of simply brushing his teeth as that alone didn't help. I definitely recommend switching to a quality cat food if anyone's cat is experiencing gum inflammation to see if it helps before turning to more drastic measures like tooth extractions.
I've now switched over to the Instinct brand freeze-dried nuggets because a month's supply of it costs me a bit less than a month's supply of the canned stuff. Whether freeze-dried nuggets or canned food, this brand has helped me keep my kitten's gum inflammation at bay. However, my kitten certainly misses the canned food and I may end up switching back because he likes it better.
*** Oh my. I have to share my utter amazement at the quality of my shelter kitty's coat since eating this food. It turned out I had adopted, unaware, a Bengal mix kitten. I've since learned how special and unique her traits are. Especially the "glitter" of her coat which is now absolutely shining. She was lovely before, but now she's dazzling.
Original: My cans arrived in good time and with fresh food. I will only serve grain free wet food now and gave this pack of 12 a chance. My young cat is down to can 8 now. She isn't much of a fan. I don't give her other choices, so she eats it eventually, but I'm going to try a different brand after can #12. (She doesn't like my homemade chicken catfood either... and boy, did I put a lot of effort into that. Discouraging. She wasn't so picky as a wee kitten.) The strongest recommendation I give this brand is that my cat appears healthy, happy, and her coat shines!
