Addiction Canned Food 3

THE BIG THING: Well, I didn't have any great expections for the 3rd Addiction flavor "Unagi and Seaweed" mixed with Friskies Chicken. And I was right. None of the cats would go near the stuff. They sniffed, Iza licked it, but not even Iza would so much as eat any...

I know that some cats like the Addiction canned foods, but mine sure don't. And I made sure they were hungry when I offerred it. I gave them 1/2 the regular canned food for breakfast each time, and they still didn't want to eat the Addiction canned foods.

Maybe they are just too used to the Purina and Fancy Feast, but I have to say that they just didn't want anything to do with the Addiction canned foods. LC and Ayla had the same aversion to Merrick and Evo canned food.

They like the Addiction dry stuff just fine, though. Apparently, they are all less fussy about dry crunchies. LC considers Hill's Science Diet dry food to be treats, so I reserve it for that purpose. None of them like standard kitty treats (dry or soft).

But they don't seem to like the Addiction dry crunchies any BETTER than Meow Mix or Authority, so I won't be bothering to get the the Addiction dry stuff once it is used up.

We don't like the evo either. Mom hasn't tried us on any others because of Miss Jade's tummy. She is finally at a stage where her tummy is mostly calm, so Mom doesn't want to change her food and give her tummy trouble again.

We are really enjoying reading about your experiment.

LC, Ayla, and Iza listen up this is how you make your preference known. Scylla taught us. See Mommy got some foods we didn't like, so Scylla jumped way up high (Mommy has to have a chair to reach the storage spot) to where our bags of dry cat food are stored and drug the catfood bag we likes off and we tore a big hole it in and proceeded to fest. While the stuff we didn't like sat in our bowls. Mommy promised not to get it again.

Never heard of "Addiction" food, what a name ! that's probably why they don't like it !
My cats like Friskies can food and also the dry food, but then we also have other brand names.
Arthur is earning money, he poses in a magazine, lol !

We pretty much like the flavors of FF with gravy. We scorned the fancier versions of it and don't much like any other kind of canned food. There's a dry food we love but we only get it as a treat every second blue moon--now I can't even remember the name of it! Anyway, our normal dry is SD. Really, we're not that happy when Mom decides to experiment with our familiar things. I mean, look at the recent fiascoes we've gone through with cat boxes and cat litter!

We scarfed down the first three cans of Addiction, but the 4th...we both walked away from it. I'm not sure why. Buddah loves the dry Addiction, though...

We are like that. We do like the Wellness that comes in the packets which is very different from the cans. But only the chicken and salmon flavor!

our the mom has finally figured out to not get that 'spensive canned stuff for us. we won't go near it. we eats Natural Balance duck and green pea crunchies and they are the bomb! we has to eat those 'cause it's the only thing Miles won't barf back up for dry food.
we eats the new Friskies select canned foods - they're really good.
