If you have just eaten don't read this

With all the cats that are dependent on me for food - I think I'm at 12 help! -I try to feed them a decent kibble (Eaglepack or equivalent) and then canned morning and night (a spoonful of Friskies). The Friskies has always bothered me and even more so now, read on...
Yesterday I found a bug in a small can of Friskies chicken, I'm talking about a small black worm about an inch long and very alive. And I had bought a case of 24 cans! The salespeople at Mondou were dumbstruck, then they carefully retaped the foil over the can in question many more times than was strictly necessary and refunded my money.
I probably could have sued for damages, plus pain and suffering...
I'm beginning to think that feeding Orijen exclusively, or a similar grain-free product, with some raw chicken thrown down from time to time, may be the way to go.
Otherwise, I'll be looking closely in every can, forever. And what about the crap we can't see?

Badger,that is just awful
I have been feeding mine a can of Fancy Feast ever now and then,but mostly Wellness.
Mine did not like Orijen dry,they don't eat much dry food period.
But I don't feed 12 cats like you do..
I remember yrs ago,we bought some Kentucky fried chicken and inside the breading on one piece there were dead maggots,I have never had KFC since
I think your idea of feeding Orijen is ok,especially with 12 kitties..

The plus is they are all mad for Orijen, even Mousse. What about adding water to make a bit of gravy (the kibble is slightly flaky, with no grain to bind it)?

When I fed orijen exclusively, I did that. Onnie likes his gravy. Seemed to work well.

Do they eat the kibble right away or does it sit? I think it was W4R or SCM or growler (can't remember which) who said if the kibble gets wet and sits too long (1/2 hour or so) spores can start growing.

It may have been a little longer but I was surprised at how fast it happened too.

Oh, they tear right into it. Would putting it in the fridge delay that deterioration?
