Nutro,Wellness?

After trying all kinds of canned food to get my cats off"Fancy Feast"I finally succeded with Wellness(3oz cans)and Nutro cans and I think I'll stick with Wellness since it's a pate.
I was just a bit thrown back by what it said on the can,it says 2 3oz cans a day for an 8-10lb cat.
At $1.10 a can,we would have to take out a mortgage to feed the 3 cats
I would soon have 50lb cats if they were fed 2 cans each a day..
My three cats share one 3oz can twice a day,but they also eat Nutro dry in between.
If I fed them 2 cans each every day it would cost $112 +tax a month +birdseeds(not for the cats!!)litter and everything else.

FAT CATS

My three inside and one garage cat split one can of Friskies cat food a day (5.5 oz) and lunch on dry food the rest of the time. They are all in great condition and not over weight. The Friskies cat canned food is 25 - 38 cents a can (depending on the sale price) however the bags of dry foods are Eagle Pack hairball remedy and Eukanuba Low Residue. I'm not sure if it is helping that much but they like it. My guys get a variety of flavors in the canned food and we rotate between 6 of their favorite flavors

All my cats ate Friskies all their lives and were healthy and long-lived.
One that is good for neutered toms is the Turkey and Giblet flavour. My cats won't eat the chunks in gravy, but do love the pate type.

Hi guys! it was not really a problem or a question,I was just stunned what it said on the can,two cans a day/per cat
I will mix the different cans,they do LOVE the Wellness cans and eat every bit,they must know it's $1.09 a can 3oz
