    I noticed this at my local p@h today. It is a new line (I assume it is a p@h own label?). Anyway, it rather stupidly has peas in it (3%) but, apart from that it seems to be one of the best foods available at retail; 75% meat content, single protein. Looks like lilys but much cheaper.

    I use the WW trays for Maisie & it's fab (much better than the tins who are made by a different manufacturer!)

    If the cat trays are the same, they will be made by Forth Glade and should be very similar to their own product

    Found a better link

    Meant to add (sorry!) - Archie loves the dog one and I really have to watch him if I'm doing Maisie's dinner as he'll pinch it out the air-tight box if I turn my back :eek:

    Will def be getting some to try :) thanks letting us know it's there

    I saw this the other day and was tempted to get some for Minky but they only do 2 flavours (one a fishy flavour and she doesn't like fish) for older cats and Minkys 10.

    Whats the difference between 1-7 yrs and senior? is there really a difference....I just thought if it was a good content food then any cat of any age thats eating solids can have it. :confused:

    I couldn't see any claims that it is a " complete " food. Have I missed it somewhere?. If it is incomplete I personally would steer away from it.

    Apologies , if I missed any indication of completeness (???). Only had a couple of hours sleep last night so may well have missed something glaringly obvious.:confused:

    Sorry, I've just spotted something like " all the vitamins and minerals your cat needs". Will slap wrists and resolve to read details properly before putting foot in mouth,

    Ooh, that could be good news then. I rate Forthglade highly but it is a pain to get hold of. The packaging is very similar come to think of it. I bought some anyway and will see how it goes down tomorrow.

    I've never really bothered with senior food for either the dogs or cats tbh - its usually a difference in protein &/or fat - but just looked & the same for the adult & senior

    There's a slight difference in ingredients (Turkey one) but I'd still feed the adult to a senior hth

    Wainrights is a complete food, it is a P&h high end brand and is very successful. There are hyped allergenic versions also for sensitive kitties :)
    Hope that helps?

    Also, th difference between adult 1-7 food and senior food is a higher amount of oils and omega 3&6 which an older cat requires, so ideally it is best to move your older cat onto a mature food to ensure they are getting the correct amount of nutrients etc that they need x

    That's quite a claim! I would like to hear more. Can you provide references / research? Thanks.

    My Henry boy actually ate some of this (in my quest to get him off Sheba, I'm trying everything I can lay my hands on :D)

    Well, he ate the Lamb flavour in the tray (haven't bought the pouches)
    I rejoiced and went back to the shop and bought a load more trays (Lamb, Salmon and Turkey)

    Then he flatly refused to touch the salmon or the turkey. Sometimes he rejects food and then hangs on in the vain off chance that I might relent and provide Sheba, then when I don't he returns to the food half an hour later and finishes it off!

    But not with the salmon or turkey. It lay there for a very long time and he looked so forlorn in the end, I had to give in and give Sheba.

    But he will eat the lamb one oddly enough. The texture is weird - it's like hard pate.

    Believe me there are a few sheba addicts on here, despite the want of trying :eek:

    Thanks for the texture info.

    Mine are on sheba with the.odd couple of tins of gourmet chucked in to get the off the stuff

    Mia .... Sheba

    Archie .... Gourmet

    *sigh*

    BUT having spent years and a small fortune trying just about every wet there is (have been down the full list on Zoo+ :rolleyes: and everything you can get in the supermarkets) at least they will eat some wet now as they're the 1st things either of them will eat


    The WW .... mmmmm nope!:(

    Although Archie still pinches Maisie's dog one whenever poss :confused:


    Wonder if the pouches are worth a try ..... might pop to PAH at the weekend!
