Good morning everyone!
I need help with what brands of canned cat food I should buy for my feral cat colony.
Earlier this month I purchased Wellness adult chicken cat food 12 x 12.5oz (150oz) and Instinct LID turkey 12 x 5.5oz (66oz) from petco.
I was hesitant in ordering Wellness because of carrageenan but it is such a great value deal so I ordered it anyway. I must admit, it was a big hit for my cat colony. 17/20 cats LOVED it and 3 refused to eat it.
The 12 cans lasted one whole week which is very reasonable and on my budget!
Now that I'm out of Wellness, its time to use the instinct cans, these are really healthy but they're not so cheap
. I'm afraid that these won't last a week for 20 cats; i'd have to order 24 cans of instinct and that would be double the price!
So I was just about to place another order of Wellness but I'm still concerned over the carrageenan. I love these cats to the moon and back so If I have to spend more money for healthier foods then I guess I have no choice. What would you guys recommend? Should I completely avoid brands with carrageenan forever, or would it be okay to rotate and maybe feed them these brands once or twice a month (for a whole week)? Also, if you guys know of any other alternate canned brands without carrageenan please let me know. So far I have my eyes on Instinct and Tiki cat.
If you take your time to leave a suggestion, it's greatly appreciated!
(I MUST order within the next 24 hours because I don't want to run out of canned food)
