What if they can't handle wet food?

I notice Tiger has sensitive stomach, wet foods are giving him the runs and boy do they stink!. He is eating wellness right now and i'm looking for a different food. I have heard that some cats don't do well with wet food at all, if that ever becomes an issue then what?.

Wellness was too rich for my cats. Try another brand.

Re: What if they can't handle wet food?

What flavor(s) wellness are you trying? I switched my kittehs slowly from dry to wellness, that did get runs at first a bit but now are fine. I so far only feed the chicken/turkey formula. If you are feeding a fish formula kittehs may be allergic to fish. Generally when switching you mix a small amount of the new food with their old food and over a week or two you gradually switch the amounts to more and more of the new food. If you are switching instantaneously that can upset kittehs' system. I don't know what 'too rich' means; I mean wellness is one of the better canned foods out there, no grains, fillers etc.
