    There is a lot of interest on this forum about which are the best foods to feed, but when it comes down to it
    which wet food do you actually feed your cat(s)?

    Almo nature do a chicken and pumpkin as well as a tuna and seaweed one (I think). Applaws do those flavours too. Thinking of either one of those?

    Hi Life pate tins or Feline Fayre blue pouches (feeding that now as the boxes of 8 are £1 in Morrisons). Of course the blue pouches aren't complimentary so I'm also feeding Hi Life dry. I was feeding Applaws and then I was told they're not as great as I thought they were :(

    Applaws dry with FF blue pouches in the week (need the dry to leave out while working) or Hilife tins, FF black pouches or Tesco Luxury pouches or Tesco Just Nature trays at weekends.

    Purley kitten dry even though she's 1 she still can't eat the adult cerial as it's too big for her. Applaws wet as she won't eat anything else.

    The kitten and the adult are almost exactly the same, so I wouldn't worry too much. The adult one has vegetables and fruit (Citrus Pulp and Grape Pomace :confused:), whereas the kitten doesn't, and is 30% Protein whereas the adult is 28%. Hardly a difference at all :p

    For Locke, his main diet is HiLife pouches, and sometimes Pets at Home Complete pouches. He does love Applaws and HiLife complimentary tins as a treat, too :D

    Just bumping it up. :D Interesting results so far, don't you guys think? Didn't think feline fayre was this popular or that a quarter of respondents feed their cats raw, or raw at least some of the time! :thumbup:

    Surprised Feline Fayre is so popular, seeing as one of it's ingredients is sugar or glucose!

    I tried my cats on raw but neither ate it quickly enough and having the meat just lying there turned my stomach. I now have them on a combination of Grau rice and lamb wet and dry plus a taste of ordinary raw lamb mince once or twice a week. It seems to be working and even Marley the mega allergic cat is tolerating it :thumbup:

    I can defo reccomend Grau (available from zooplus) to anyone who's cat suffers from food allergies and isn't suited to a raw diet for whatever reason :)

    Sugar doesn't have the same effect on cats that it has on humans and it is frequently used in the pet industry to aid the cooking process and to change the appearance of the food (makes it more shiny). I believe the jury is out as to whether it contributes to dental health problems in cats or whether cats can get addicted to it or even whether it makes food more tasty. The other reason it is include is to bump up the energy content.

    However, like you I believe that sugar has no place in cat food.

    I'm sure cats dont care whether their food is shiny or not. Sugar is added to other pet foods to make them more tasty, but you often find there's a lot in the cheapo "meat byproduct" foods to make up for the fact they're eating what's been sprayed loose from an already stripped carcass, rather than quality meat.

    I think I should vote for whatever the fussy little madam will eat! At the moment Almo Nature chicken and pumpkin or chicken and cheese are acceptable. A couple of weeks ago Feline Fayre was fine, now she won't touch it.

    I should think there are a few cat owners out there, whose voting would change from one month to another, so just vote for what you use now. Like Hobbs2004 says, it's interesting to see raw and Feline Fayre are the most popular at the moment.

    Unfortunatly kitty is really fussy and in the UK she would only eat whiskers oh so fish or felix as good as it looks. She has to make do with the standard of Whisker and Felix now, although considering changing her to raw.
