|I'm so glad when I hear stories of former kibble addicts, like my cat, doing so well on canned food.
I am suspicious about the beef too. Honestly, if we have to worry about horse meat getting into our own food, I'm pretty sure it's in cat food too. I'm not sure if that would bother cats, but it just seems icky to me. Beep had been throwing up for years though, so I don't know that anything necessarily changed with the beef and chicken one, it was jsut that I ran out of the beef and chicken and only bought turkey and chicken and then noticed she wasn't throwing up, for 3 weeks straight. After throwing up at leaast once a week for YEARS. And she had been to the vet, been checked out, nothing could stop it, but now it seems to have just stopped. That's funny, the cat the likes the cubed with gravy, Beep is the opposite, she doesn't like tht one. She will lick the gravy up and leave the cubes. I only bought it a few times as a treat anyway, since she prefers the pate style one. Have you tried mixing water in it, so that it looks like gravy? Maybe that might help? If someone else feeds Beep (God forbid) and they don't mix her warm water in with her food....she won't eat it. She will just look at it like "you did it wrong....this isn't how mom does it!"
My sister in law was over yesterday and commented on how soft and shiny and glowy my cats where, and I said it's because I feed them good food. It makes all the difference in the world, I believe. Because my own Beep started off, 10 years ago, on Science Diet food, from the vet, dry, I didn't know any better. She ate contsantly, was fat, never satisfied, and her coat was dry, coarse, shedding badly, she looked a mess. When I finally transitioned her to canned food, she lost 5 pounds in a year, and her coat is like velvet. She looks beautiful. Also, my vet remarked how great her teeth looked for a 10 year old cat.
I think there may be foods out there better or as good as Wellness, but it works for us, and works great for my senior. My vet told me that the only time you need to buy senior food is if your pet is overweight, because it has less calories.
