Just a word on that. Someone earlier this year did a thread about this food. Because Special Kitty has been involved with so many recalls I said I would not try it for my cats. At that time the WM I went to did not carry this new line of food. When they got it in I tried it to see what the cats thought. The ingredient list seemed ok except for the "meat" gravy I think it said. I bought numerous cans of this food. Over time the cats showed no interest in eating it. I noticed one thing that was rather disturbing about it. If it sat out for a while (1 - 2 hours) the gravy congealed and got a white scum over it. It also smelled pretty nasty once this happened. That was enough to turn me off buying it.
WM also has a line of raw. For my money what they have available for cats is way too overpriced and filled with too many things cats don't want.
