Use $3 coupon from smartsource

I did this in Ontario, 11.19 x 1.13 = 12.64 - $3 = $9.64 a bag

I bought 2 bags and earned a 5 cent CT money.

Think about your pet and their health. Don't feed them this garbage.

Agreed, look at the ingredients before you put anything in your body (or you pet).

The person below linked a great database for cat food. But generally, you want the first three ingredients to be natural, real meat. The first should be whatever meat, the second should be an additional meat, the third can be the meat broth. Cats are natural carnivores, so they need a high protein diet for weight management, a healthy coat (prevents hairballs), healthy nails and prevent vet bills down the road.

I feed my kitties Orijen, which, yes, is pricey, but it saves me $$$$$ in vet bills once they're older. There's other options, too. Open Farm is a brand that I'll switch my kitties to next, which is much cheaper and they really enjoy the smell and taste. Nutrience also makes a grain-free dry cat food that can be found on sale. All three are made in Canada.

Excellent post, I also use Orijien 6 fish for my 2 cats. I haven't heard of Open Farm, Nutrience or GO, if would be nice to find some links for these at prices that are lower than Orijien which is about $60-70 for the 6kg bag. I also agree no wheat or meat by products, it must be real meat, otherwise the kitties suffer in different ways.

I personally believe Crave cat food is the LEAST cat owners should feed their cats. None of this garbage food.

Even though Orijien is not the "best" it's ingrediants seems like the best: Fresh whole pacific pilchard (18%), fresh whole pacific mackerel (13%), fresh whole pacific hake (12%), fresh whole pacific flounder (5%), fresh whole rockfish (5%), fresh whole sole (5%), whole mackerel (dehydrated, 5%), whole herring (dehydrated, 5%), alaskan cod (dehydrated, 4.5%), whole sardine (dehydrated, 4.5%), whole blue whiting (dehydrated, 4%), herring oil (4%).

No mention of meals, or rice, or peas, etc..

Still looking for more..

To everyone taking about fish meal, or meat meal, this is a GOOD thing.
Meat meal is a meat concentrate, as in the meat with water removed. It is completely natural meat and is higher quality than when chicken, salmon, or any other whole protein is listed high on the ingredient list.

This is because when just the meat (deboned chicken, whole salmon, etc.) is listed first, this just means that the mass of the meat was highest BEFORE cooking. If you have a meat meal first, that means the mass of meat meal was highest before cooking, but that just means you start and end with more meat (in the case of dried kibble)

You need to worry about chicken byproduct meal and poultry meal and anything similarly suspicious. These are scraps, byproducts, bone meals and feather meals that are low quality.

Read food reviews on dog food advisor and cat food advisor. They break down every ingredient.

I also must mention that some plant proteins are also high quality (more-so for dog food than cat food, as cats require higher protein as they are generally strict carnivores).
Peas and lentils for example are great. They have high protein content on their own.
Corn, wheat, and gluten are things to be avoided as they have little nutritional value.

The first links posted for the best cat food brands is reliable. Brands like go!, wellness, orijen, acana, and many others are all great. You just need to look for the crude protein breakdown so that you aren’t misled by a meat (with water and fat included) listed as the first ingredient.

You might think you’re getting a good deal on a bag of Purina, but your pet is mostly eating filler. To get the same amount of nutrition from a cheap food, your pet will need to eat more of it.

You will see on higher quality foods that thy recommend that you actually feed less of their product - stretching the value of the bag even if it is more expensive outright.

We have two cats, one's 4 and the other is about 2. We've been feeding them Nutrience Prairie Red for as far back as I can remember.

It's the only Nutrience that has any meal listed as like after 5+ ingredients, the first being real meat. I assume it's the best and most easily found (PetSmart) dry food in Canada. Well reviewed on catfooddb. I know wet is better but it's much more inconvenient for us, and so the cats only get wet once every week or so. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

No health issues, knock on wood. Both cats are well within acceptable physiques, very active and seem happy with the food in general. Sometimes they decide they don't like the freeze-dried bits though. Annoying. Older boy is about 13 lbs and eats 1/2 cup a day, younger girl is 9 lbs and eats the same. Neither begs for food or seems hungry for more.

It's worth the investment if the cat leads a happier and healthier life. They're family after all :)

This will kill your cat. Under investigation. Pay a few more dollars and at least buy some Wellness or Natural Balace. Taste of the Wild cmon folks! They use sick zoo ani,als and euthanized sick animals in this garbage food.

In Montreal, Open Farm is often discounted at Mondou and independent shops. My cats loved it and once they're past the kitten stage and into adulthood, I'll feed them that. It's only a difference of $10-15 vs. Orijen but I don't want them to be picky of foods.

First four ingredients are deboned fish. The first three ingredients are what matter. Meals are okay as ingredients further down the list. There's a step above this, if you're willing to pay - it's the "sub-zero" which is meant to be purely what cats would eat in the wild with no grains.

This is exactly what I feed my kittens as their wet food. They enjoy it. Non-stop meowing as soon as they hear the can "pop!" Mine are around 8 lbs now - nearing a year old. They eat... a lot. Half cup of dry food each and half a can of wet food. One of them, a Siamese mix, is a non-stop eater. He will literally eat anything. Ever since we switched them to Nutrience + Orijen, their coats became slick and shiny.
