we just ordered a case of 24 dr. foster's canned-anybody heard of them? we trust their other products-unfortunately the cases only come in one flavor, so the cats will get their fill of salmon/shrimp:))for purposes of economy, we will be mixing with dry...IAMS kitten formula for the moment, until the girls turn a year old, then we plan to upgrade to a better dry. they love canned, so that's no problem. OUR problem might be getting them to eat the dry and get enough calories so that the canned lasts long enough:-/
how much canned is enough a day? how much dry to go with it? should we mix dry to supplement, because i'm afraid if we give dry alone and also give wet they'll strike on the dry. they protested when we went back to dry after we gave canned for several days recently when we ran out of dry and the convenience store had yucky dry-i just don't feed meow mix, sorry, besides they're picky-picky on dry. when we accidentally changed types of IAMS kitten food they snubbed it for a day. i shudder at the thought of transitioning them to adult food in the coming weeks...really need to start now, i suppose, but i haven't got one picked out yet.
for now, i just need to get this issue of how to mix the wet & dry thing proportion sorted out.
