So, the dogs will eat anything. But lately, the cats refuse the stuff with Omega oils!
Another thread about a Cat Smoothie(tm) got me thinking... how many sardines per week is enough for these things? And are cooked sardines okay? Or raw only? Even though the cats shouldn't have fish often, if 2+ times a week enough?

Typically in the containers of sardines I get there are 4-5 in each. For most of mine a sardine is good for a week...but it depends on if they are longhaired or shorthaired. The longhaired ones (especially Chester) need 2 a week.
I use sardines for a few reasons. First, with 18 cats eating raw, it is hard to add fish oil to their food. Second, they LOVE sardines and they work very well. Third, I just love feeding them sardines. It is so much easier to make sure each cat gets at least one than to have to add oil to their food...
furryfriends, where do you get your sardines? Every time I look around in the grocery store they always have sardines in oil or tomato sauce.
I get mine from Safeway if that makes any differance. They have a lot of differant brands and flavors, if thats what you call them, but I like the Brunswick ones.
They are more smushy and it makes it easy to mix with food if I want to. Lately I have been mixing a can of sardines with the bucket of food which is about 3 lbs of meat. So far it has been working very well, but I might switch back to once a week. I decided I don't want them to get addicted.
