    Can anyone recommend a good quality wet food that is low in smells? I am currently using Felix as the lady from CPL said wet foods are pretty much all the same, but I know through another posting someone said higher quality food smells less. (Their Hill's Science Plan dry food is fine)

    My kittens are moggies so don't require any specialist food pedigrees would need, but this is as much for my benefit as theirs.

    Thanks xxx

    Lumboo, have a look at the A-Z of wet cat food for some ideas: http://www.petforums.co.uk/cat-health-nutrition/112132-z-wet-food-cats.html.

    Pedigrees certainly don't need any different food from moggies and the lady from the CPL frankly didn't have a clue what she was talking about. True, a lot of the food you can find in supermarkets looks similar, but if you are willing to buy online, then that will give you access to some really good food. So, no, not all wet cat food is the same and the A-Z will make it clear just what a minefield it is and how variable they are.

    TB - Taste of the Wild, Sanabelle and I suspect the Porta 21 you are talking about are dry food.

    Lumboo - I've posted on your thread about air freshner. I have an ultra sensitive sense of smell and find loads of aromas offensive. The smell of Felix and Whiskas cat food make me heave.

    Based on my heightened olfaction, I can recommend a few foods that don't make me heave which come out well on the nutrition stakes too - Grau, Smilla, Bozita, Animonda and the newly introduced (thanks to Hobbs) Schmusy :)

    Thank you, I will check out where I can get these. I gave the "Furbies" Rabbit flavoured Felix tonight and that was not as bad, so maybe it is the Chicken and Rabbit ones I particularly hate the smell to.

    I came home tonight (after a whole day out) and couldn't smell cat, food or litter, so maybe yesterday I was just more sensitive to it. My husband hadn't kept the window open all day either. He also did his first litter duty and said he was heaving. He gets me to do this as I can't smell as well....:blink:

    Hi Lumboo, I understand that 'at certain times of the month' one's sense of smell is more heightened :)

    With regard to the food I listed on my previous post, all are available online from Zooplus. It's a great website for cat food (and lots of other cat stuff). The difficulty is, once you start shopping there, that's where all your spare money goes :eek:
