Just a poll - What kind of canned food do you feed your Cat?

I have started feeding Brackley Wellness, and he seems to be enjoying it. I am just wondering what everyone else feeds their cats. Thanks.

My cats don't really like any canned food, but I did give them some Chicken soup for that cat lovers soul and they ate a little bit, which is better than they did on other kinds.

Fancy Feast, alternating flavors. She won't eat fish, diced, sliced, or in gravy.

Fancy Feast and Nutro,they scoffed at Wellness...I add a tiny bit of people Tuna to the beef,turkey and liver kind,so they will eat all the varieties+CSFCLS dry 24/7.
3 cats share one small can,twice a day.

Ditto to Glasslass & Chico's replies. Fancy Feast, the good ol' mushy kind. None of that fancy sliced, shaved stuff that looks too much like real food. CSFCLS? No way! Heaven forbid he should eat something that's actually somewhat good for him!

I feed wellness too, and my kittens LOVE it. I sometimes give them that Whiskas chunky stuff in gravy that they like a lot.

Fancy Feast...Grilled Chicken, Whiskas pouches-anything with GRAVY!!! And of course the Wellness dry food 24/7, self feeding.....I tried the better brand wet foods but they are all like mush and my finicky bunch wont have that....they want something that looks and smells like what mommy is eatin! (Of course Buddy wants exactly what I'm eating....while I'm trying to eat it!)

Whiskas, Fancy Feast, Friskies... they get pretty much any kind of canned food. We were putting it in one bowl for all four of them and it worked fine cause they'd all take turns, but with those pouches (I think the Whiskas) they smack each other if they take too long!

Wow Knight,and you are asking me for advice,little princess Trixie eats like a queen Is natural Balance pate or chopped meat?? My cats will only eat pate.
So far I have always had to go back to Fancy Feast and Nutro,they'll eat nothing else...maybe I'll try Natural Balance too.Nutros canned food looks good enough to put on a cracker
Hubby and I take cod-liver oil capsules in the winter(not sure why,but I do as I am told )Just wondered if it would be good for the cats too?
Oh,and I just LOVE looking of pictures of Sardine-cans Just kidding,maybe I'll buy some.....

Her tail is soooooo luxurious! But, you haven't installed a mouse hole for her yet? She looks like she's looking for one!

LOL... which reminds me at the rate she's going, i wont have to install one we might just have a hole in the wall.. people with wild cat's knows what i mean! when your kitty goes into hyper mode and run's around banging into everything... it's best to leave the place in a mess and blame it on the Kitty..after all it IS the kitty's well doing!
I still say that Maine coon's get their name because of their Racoon Appearance like Tail...

Knighty,of course I read ALL my Pm's..and I did think of Natural Balance,just had not seen it on the shelves,or maybe it was $2/can and I ignored it
Having 3 cats I have a limit...right now Chico and Rocky are turning their noses at anything that is not fishy and Vinnie wants to eat all three dishes
Currently my 4 crows are eating very well!!(they get all my left-overs!)
I'm stocking up on cat-food today and I'll try Natural Balance,might even get a couple of cans of sardines....how do you feed Trixie sardines???Mix it with her food?
Hubby is getting a bit concerned,seing he's taking early retirement next year..between big bags of birdseeds,peanuts(for my FiFi and others)and 3 cats,he might have to work a few more years
Oh and I forgot my coons and they do have a beautiful tail..as does our Trixie!

Yup but mixed it in their wet food since you're starting out with it! make sure to only add 1/2 a sardine.. it's gonna be really fishy smelling.. trixy loves it! also dont forget you can also use Tuna...

as for Natural balance's canned lol.. yes i agree prices on em are a tad high!
but the Dry food is great SO healthy!

One thing i'm crazy about is Kitty food...

You know in that last picture...Trixy's marking look a lot like Smoke's....

And I'm with you Chico, at 3 you have to be a little wary of pricy foods!

And....as for fish around here, the girls hate it (Windy will eat salmon once in a blue moon) and they are all getting so finicky. Windy and Smoke only like that grilled chicken fancy feast and Buddy also enjoys finishing everyone's breakfast (even mine of im not careful!) so he gets fed seperately now. I've tried the wellness wet and a bunch of other ones too, but my kitties don't like that mushy texture they all have, even the Nutro natural pouches weren't meat like enough for them.
They are loving the Wellness dry food though...and after only a week and a half I do actually see a difference in the size and stink of their poop...before it was HUGE and stinky enough to take over the whole apartment! Not to mention that they seem to have a whole lot more energy too!

Well,the big test will be tonight,I bought only one can of Natural Balance Ultra($1.39)unfortunately they only had large cans.One can of Eagle Pack also $1.39,the rest small Nutro cans and 2 cans of sardines.
Mine are totally opposite to yours Dahmer,they won't touch chunky stuff only pate and they'll eat only about a tbsp each.
I thought Fancy Feast was ok,since they eat so little of it,but lately they have snubbed it and it's gone to the crows(they're happy!!)
I am getting a little paranoid and upset when they don't eat,so I am full of suspense to see if they'll eat the new stuff
Knighty,I used to cook liver once a week for hubby,but i make it with tarragon and hot mustard,he loves it,but liver is loaded with bad cholesterol,so he gets it only twice a month ,,,,he's got to watch it.
I'll just have to hold my breath,when I cut up yucky Sardines
