Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

I have some picky cats who are also FELV positive. We are trying to feed them the best we can w/in our budget and time frame. We have recently switched from Friskies to Wellness can to Wellness pouch. My kitties(9months) refuse to eat anything in loaf has to be chunks, cutlets, etc. Now they aren't really eating the wellness pouch food anymore. They did have a bout of diarrhea about 2 weeks after we were on it fully but that has gone away. They love the Wellness dry. What would be the best all natural wet food to feed them? I don't want to end up w/ a bunch of cans of things they won't eat because I have to order you know of any that are more filets, chunks, cutlets, etc? Thanks!

    To my knowledge, the only "GOOD" food that sells pouches is Wellness. My cats get them as a treat every couple of days and would jump through hoops for them! On a regular basis they get Nature's Variety Instinct dry food and Innova EVO canned. Innova is a very good food, maybe you could try it? Other than wellness pouches, I'm not sure if there is another brand that sells anything other than canned. I know Evangers has things like canned whole mackerel and chicken with the bones still in it (the bones crumble).... but they are pretty expensive!!

    i know that tiki cat has chunky foods. actually, i bought a variety pack and one of them even had little squid legs in it because it was with kalimari and the mackeral cutlets had chuncks of whole fish in it. i know fish should only be given as a special treat because of mercury and such but it might be worth a shot. merrick also has some formulas that are pretty chunky.

    Weruva is either sliced or chunky varieties. The fish ones are all chunky in jelly and the meat ones are mostly sliced with one or two chunky ones.

    My kitties LOVE the Wellness pouches. I don't feed them fish. First of all, they don't like it, but also the vet told me that too much fish can make a kitty sick. Both my cats go crazy over the chicken/duck variety of the Wellness pouches.
