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.


Need a better wet food

I have an 8 month old kitten Miles and an 14 year old cat Howard. They get different dry foods--a grain free for the kitten and a vet prescribed diet food for the old kitty. But as for wet food, I'm at a loss. I've tried a lot of different foods, but mostly all my cats will eat is Friskies, and nothing really mushy. My vet said while Miles is young he's fine with the cheap stuff as he just needs calories, but I wanted to switch him to something a little better. Howard really doesn't care what wet he eats as he doesn't eat much. The main thing is with going through a couple cans a day, I can't spend $2/can on my budget. I'm looking for a good quality wet food, about $1 can, that doesn't have the consistency of total mush. We've tried Blue, but it wasn't a big hit.

    It's my opinion that any canned food is better than dry and I feed my fosters Friskies to keep costs down. The quality is not the highest but the pate flavors are low carb and most cats really like them. Stay away from gravies and "shapes" - it takes carbs to create both. Most of the high quality foods are pretty expensive. The most reasonable one I can think of is the Natural Balance LID flavors but even those are more than $1 a can I think.

    I like Best Feline Friend, Fussie Cat & Earthborn wet food.
