I've tried to get my cats to eat something other than Fancy Feast (which contains crack I'm convinced). They used to eat more natural, organic stuff, but somehow got hooked on Fancy Feast.

Anyhow, I noticed Petite Cuisine at Petco and gave it a shot. Both cats appear to love it, so I've ordered more. However, the company that makes it is called PetPlayInc. Huh? Never heard of these people.

I'm a little worried about whether I should trust this new brand, even though it's natural. Has anyone here been feeding Petite Cuisine for several months? I'm not sure how long it's been around, but seems really new.

I have seen it at Petco for a while - the only flavors I saw were fish ones, and I cannot give that to my boys. I personally have not checked into them, but the ingreds did not seem too bad from what I remember. I know it is scary even looking at pet food any more

Thanks for responses. After trying about 8 cans from Petco, I had thought my cats loved Petite Cuisine. Yet, after buying two cases I'm discovering they won't eat it anymore. They're also vomiting a bit. I managed to get a partial refund from wag.com. Going back to Fancy Feast.

You can return the cans you bought from Petco and exchange them for another food. I've found that my cats will vomit anything with grains in it. It's also best to transition from one food to another slowly to prevent stomach upset. My Birman has to eat Natural Balance Limited Ingredients duck and pea formula wet. The other cats do well on most other grain-free and by-product free foods.
