Thanks, I have one question. Would it be healthy to switch brands every now and then or stick with something she seems to like?

I would pick a chicken one as the base and then you can add other flavor to give her a variety in a rotating diet. There are other poulty ones to be tried slowly like turkey, quail, duck, and pheasant. Then you can try ones with rabbit, beef, lamb, pork, venison, buffalo, brushtail or salmon. Get a note book and write detailed notes of like and dislikes, prices and where you bought them. Slow is better on the non poulty ones.

We tried buffalo today. Two of the cats loved it. In two weeks, we will try another flavor.

Hmm, I found at least one brand (Blue Buffalo) that is carried in my town but they don't have any of the kitten lines. Can starting her on adult food now hurt her? I'm pretty sure she's 8 months.

The kitten ones have more fat. So an adult wet food is better than dry kitten food.

No Petco's intown? They have Merrick, Nature's Variety, Natural Balance, Soulistic to name a few. And $5 off $25 this weekend. Brownie likes BG5. Try the Merrick chicken pot pie. I have to add water to most of the canned foods. A few drops here and there make the wet food so much better. Mind you, it is not soup!

What about a few holistic petfood stores??? These kind of store have more of the unique proteins. Google for a few of them in your area. I'd help you but you did not list the city you are by. If all fails, you could buy some online. One of the Catster members orders By Nature chicken canned food this way. My girls's breeder orders the Chicken Soup for the Soul. There lot of nice pate ones without gluten out there. Now the fun of reading all the ingredient labels.

Whoops, I was totally wrong! We do have one pet store, Petsmart. It wasn't listed at all on the Blue Buffalo site for where to find it. However, yesterday I made a run to Petsmart for other kitty things and decided to check the cat food section and they had all the lines! I didn't buy them just yet as I had already spent quite a bit on the kitty. They also carry Wellness so I'll probably try those two brands out.

It's funny you mention a holistic pet store. I'm already aware of one a few town's over which isn't much of a drive. I have yet to check it out but I will soon!
