[Amazon.ca] Purina Cat Wet food 12 cans. All Purina wet food on sale

Seems like a good price. $6 for 12 cans or much less if you Subscibe/Save
In the related section you can see that all 12-can varieties of Purina are on sale at $6, including some premium selections

Interesting to see the same price at Walmart. Usually they cost around $0.66/can individually or $0.60/can when on sale (eg. 10 for $6) and in the cases of 24.

how does this compare with the Costco Whiskas pack of 48 for ~$20? I forgot their normal price. How's the quality between this and the costco one?

My cat as well as my friend's cats don't eat that. I believe whiskas is really really badly processed products of very low quality. Reviews indicate support of that statement.

Costco sells Friskies 48-pack of wet food 156g per tin. The Whiskas they sell is a big bag of dry food. I believe the regular price right now for the 48 pack is 22.99. It goes on sale 2-3 times a year for $5 off.

Well, then your fliers are at the same price or more expensive so I am not exactly sure what you are disagreeing with.
If you get 15% with S&S then you are paying $5.10 for 12 which is a very hot deal since in 8 years I owned the cat I've never seen them at 41c each. Did you??

This one? https://www.amazon.ca/Friskies-Purina-G ... 07GTTL1F6/
My cat vomits from this one if we force him to eat it. We bought a case and after a week gave it away to our neighbor who has 3 cats. And those 3 just refuse to eat it at all so I am not sure what's in it so bad that cats refuse it.

Not that one exactly. It's 48 cans, packaging just changed recently. Has 4 flavours, chicken, Turkey & cheese, Whitefish & tuna and chef's dinner. My cats have been eating it for years with no problems. All cats are different. In my experience they don't usually like sudden changes in their diets. Most advice suggests a gradual introduction if you make the choice to change their food.

Thanks OP, ordered some Fancy Feast.

Ours usually eats 3 of the 4 flavours of Co-op branded wet food (usually on sale for $0.50/can) but will eat FF as well -- as a periodic treat.

That’s just a crappy affiliate site; I wouldn’t give it much credibility. Any wet food is better than the best dry food.

I was just providing some inputs there. (although catfooddb seems well regarded, not sure about the other one)

I think you meant any wet food is better than kibble. There are quite a few dry options out there that are probably better than most canned food (like ziwi peak).

Nah. Like I said, even the cheap, mass-market canned wet food is going to be better for your cat than dry food. Not saying you can't feed them both - I leave out dry food for mine every other day or so, or when I'm away for a few days - but wet food has a high moisture content that cats need; they're originally a desert animal that gets most of their water sourced through their food. Not only that - they're carnivores; they get their energy almost strictly through protein, not carbohydrates like we (omnivores) do. Cats can't process the rice/wheat/soy that constitutes most of the ingredients in dry food.

I've got 2 cats and both had diarrhea and occasional vomiting for the 2 month we were feeding them Friskies from Costco. We had to switch to Fancy Feast and dry food and everything stopped.

I'm well aware they're carnivore, that's why I feed my cat raw.

I just meant that some dry foods (again, not kibble) like ziwipeak are mostly meat. Like 96%+ meat. Looks like carna4 is similar.

Ahh, yeah, looked up Ziwipeak, I see what you mean. Definitely not kibble. I should've specified.
