More Foods

We sure allus love when more foods arrive on the doorstep.  This time we have Wellness minced Chicken, minced Turkey, sliced Salmon, and minced Tuna.  And Whole Earth Duck pate and Beef pate.  We like pretty much all flavors except blends and chunks.  We would go all Wellness, but they dont have duck or beef without a lot of other stuff mixed in.


TBT says he thinks shipping is getting worse.  In a race to cut costs, there seems to be less and less padding in the boxes.  The last Petco delivery had only a little on one side of the box (which didnt have any benefit).  Chewy adds a top on the individual cases, but they really need it on the bottom of the box.  We usually get damage on the bottom cans.  Would a single layer of bubble wrap on the bottom cost so much?

TBT has explained this to both shippers but they never change anny...  He says he may have to shop locally again, but Petco and Petsmart dont allus have the stuff he wants and they are usually loose cans.  He says that's a real pain because you can find 8 of one flavor but 60 of another, etc at Petco because they like loose cans.  Petsmart likes whole cases, but half the time they just dont have the ones we like.  Neither shipping nor shopping werks purrfectly.

Its seems there are 3 parts about getting our food.  Selection, availability, and undamaged.  The local stores never have damaged cans, but you never know what is available and there are some flavors we like they just dont carry.  With shipping, there are damaged cans.

Another nice thing TBT does is keep 6 flavors.  We 3 go through 5 cans a day, which keeps our weights purrfectly (Marley 12.5 lbs, Iza 10, and Ayla 6.5).  And that means we start each day with a different flavor. 

We LOVE that!  Not that we exactly recall the previous days first breakfast, but me know it is a differnt one, and that matters.  And we get a variety.  There is a poultry, than a fishy, then a poultry, then a fishy, then a poultry, then a beef.   And the order changes a bit each new pantry refill.

Hey, variety is good and we appreciate the effort...

What is your pantry like?

  1. We're on Science Diet C/D canned, because we have cystitis issues. Sometimes we also get Sheba cuts, or Fancy Feast Broth Toppers, to give us some snack options, or to help stimulate our appetites if we're being fussy. Maybe TBT can ask the local stores to carry or special order some foods for you.

  2. That TBT is a good bloke, isn't he?

    As for being the perfect weight: wouldn't some suggest that Iza could slim down to a svelte 8.5 or 9lbs????

  3. You have an awesome pantry! So far my human has found more damaged cans at the pet store than she has had delivered here (of course, she leaves the dented ones on the shelf). Knock on wood... isn't that what the humans say to ward off bad luck?

  4. Your pantry is looking good. I used to get Flynn's food 2 different supermarkets. Both kept a good variety of different flavours and makes and both stocked different which meant a good variety when I was having trouble getting Flynn to eat. One of them also does raw natural food which Flynn refused point blank to eat.

  5. We used to use a mail order for Minko's noms, nevfur had any trouble. Sometimes we had our local pet shop make a special order, which also was fine, but nevfur used Petco or Petsmart. Appawrently Chewy is now associated with Petco?

    You sure have lots of variety! Bon Appetite!
