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.

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.

Just wanted to say that my cat did well at his appointment today. There was some hissing and growling, but overall, he was pretty good, considering. I decided to leave off the gas and played Billie Holiday on my phone. I think it helped, but also the vet let him stay in his carrier, just taking the top off of it.

Irma, thanks for your help. I'll ask about the shots. I may also try playing Billie Holiday in the exam room before the vet arrives to see if that helps! Jazz calms my cat, but he did get freaked out immediately upon seeing the vet last year. This cat has a good memory.

My cat's annual is coming up on Monday and he was so horrible last year, escaping to the floor multiple times and struggling while the vet administered shots. I have a great vet, but they couldn't control him. He's great at home, so friendly, but turns into an evil hell cat at the vet.

He's never bitten or scratched anyone, but he growls and hisses, so it scares everyone. I asked if I could give him some meds prior to the visit and the vet said the safest option is to use a gas chamber to sedate him for the exam.

I'm not sure about this option! They say it's safe, but I don't have a great feeling about it. Also, it costs about $50.

Any thoughts on other ways to get my cat calm for his exam?
