Murphy's canned food is from Trader Joe's, which is about a 20-minute drive from me. I usually go once a month and stock up. Unfortunately, Trader Joe's doesn't have a web site you can order from, nor does it sell in cartons. It's 30 individual cans each time! But what are you gonna do . . . it's the only canned food he'll eat.

I buy every three to four weeks. In between that three to four weeks,I will add other brands of canned just for variety.

I use a site like Wag.com that offered free shipping after you spend a certain amount and I buy a full months worth at a time. They have 2 day free delivery and when I get home from work, cat food is waiting at my doorstep. I love that.

I'd rather just buy it all at once and not spend little bits here and there as I need it.

Ah, then okay; I must have been mistaken by the can I saw, we were there last when we were still looking at kittens, my bad!

Also, we are aware; my sister's cat would not touch chicken soup and she gave a case and a half of it. We are substituting with Core when they're gone.

Has anyone tried or heard anything about Drs Smith and Foster cat food?

OMG! I used to buy that but could not get past the strong smell, plus the cats were so-so about it so I stopped. Just opened a Trader Joes about 15 mins from us. Love their cabernet.

I order the Wellness "land lover's" variety pack from petfoodirect.com every other month or so. Every two weeks I go to the pet store (PetSmart, PetCo, Pet Supermarket-depends on where I am) and buy at least 14 cans of food. Some Wellness flavors/textures that don't come in the variety pack and then other brands/flavors that I haven't tried yet. Right now I probably have about a month's worth of wet food. Disclaimer: I only give Tucker one 3oz can of wet food a day; he eats dry in the morning.

My brand comes on sale at least once a month. As soon as I see it on sale, I stock up for the month, so I can be sure that I have enough.

It took a long, LONG time. For years, all they would eat is Fancy Feast. And they HATED Cowboy Cookout and Merrick after (of course) they ate it the first time and seemed to like it. Took me a long time to use up those two cases. After I got a decent paying job, I tried again (before, I seriously couldn't afford to keep throwing food out) and now they will literally eat anything I put in front of them. And for some reason, since I moved, they have the appetites of baby Godzillas.

They only liked chunks and pieces for years, but now texture doesn't matter a bit to them. (knock wood!!!!)
