Does your cat like Wellness?

I've read that Wellness is an excellent quality can food for cats. It isn't sold in my area but I found a web site where I can order it by the case (www.petacular.com). There are several varieties: chicken, beef, etc.

To those of you who feed Wellness, is there a variety that your cat particularly likes or dislikes? It will give me an idea of which variety to order for my 2 girls, Kira and Jadzia. If you also have comments regarding online ordering, I'd be happy to read them! Thanks!

My cats would not eat the Wellness canned food. Literally would NOT eat it.

Ditto for mine, turned their noses up at it, and when I was feeding the dry poor Windy had the runs really bad.

That was our inspiration for her name! The same thing for Kira: remember Major Kira, the Bajoran in the same series? We are big Star Trek fans!

I feed my cat Jake both the Turkey and the Chicken, and he likes both equally. Before you buy a case, I would try buying some separate cans, just to see if your girls like them - because as several people have mentioned, some cats won't eat it at all - and you might need to mix it with another food for awhile to get them used to it. Unless you have an unpicky eater like my big guy - he'll eat anything!

Hi Our cat eats only Wellness. Her favorite is chicken and lobster. She has refused to eat the chicken and herring but seems to like all the others. We were able to try a few of each to see what she liked. She also likes the pouches, maybe more than the cans. Hope that helps. The fish ones smell really fishy. Laurie

My two cats both love the Wellness Core kibble. I also give them the wet food and one of them loves all the flavors I have given her. The other one is more picky and did turn her nose up to one of them - I think it was Beef and some other meat combined. The more picky one also hates Felidae wet food and some varieties of the Eagle Pack holistic select. Their coats are very shiny when on Wellness, and the one that gets mats has much less of a problem on this brand of food. Highly recommended!
