For The Cat People Of Ab
I'm looking for a pate type food for Toby. He'll happily eat Gourmet Gold pate...but that's about the only one I can rely on. His other favourite bybtge same maker was discontinued.
I've tried Sheba, Lidl tiny tins, Aldi, some random brands I've come across...most gets rejected.
I've seen a few European brands on Amazon and zooplus...but I want to know what your cats eat.

When I first got Toby as a bedraggled and frightened former street cat, he ate everything put in front of him.
Of course, now that he knows I give him food and I'm always here, he has become choosy. Both whiskas and Felix went out of favour almost 2 years ago...many reviews said the recipes had changed. I've tried both since then...half a pouch might get eaten.
Fresh...he might eat a few morsels of chicken...fish is rejected.
I keep threatening him with introducing competition for the food 🐱🐱🦁
My lot's favourite food is probably freshly-cooked chicken from Morrison's rotisserie!
However they get Felix As Good As It Looks 7+ pouches during the day, topped up with Sheba Select Slices in the evenings.
They also always have Go-Cat Crunchy and Tender Senior dried food available to them, along with Iams Senior dried food.
Chequers much prefers the moist food, whereas Moonbeam generally prefers the dried stuff. (Tablo can't make her mind up!).
If I particularly want to tempt them with something which I know that they'll all like though (e.g. when I want to hide flea tablets in their food), I've found that Gourmet Gold Chunks in Gravy with Chicken & Liver is the one to go for.
Patsy...with his appetite it would cost £15 per week. And, I tried some individual tins a year or so ago and noses were turned up. The same with scrumbles (sp?). He rather likes Gourmet Revelations...but it's too pricey for every day.
Chris...unfortunately he won't eat any of the other gourmet gold varieties.
I may have to try Felix 'as good as it looks' again.
It's a lot of money, Pasta. My 14.1/2 year old cat likes Sheba, fish or meat in jelly, 50 mg. He has to be on a urine diet, dry food too, as he had struvite stones in his bladder when younger. Very serious. A small bag costs me nearly £24. I was reading that cats like minced beef. Boil it up and simmer for about 40 mins. If your cat likes it, a cheap meal!
Hopkirk...he does eat the Purina dry, also whiskas.(the kitten food for some reason is a particular favourite). But I'd never feed any cat primarily dry...not good for kidneys.
Patsy...cooking any thing just for him is a guarantee that he won't eat it...though he likes bits of my burger or roast chicken when I have them. Only bits...🤔🙄
Cloverjo...Toby is the same with the gravy and jelly. Those meat bits do look nasty though. Like coloured cardboard when they dry up 😝
It's a shsme I can't send him out to hunt (just mice)
Oh, most definitely yes Patsy
I just get that niggling feeling that being a cat, he will one day say no.
Hopkirk/Cloverjo...yes, I read a while back that cats don't like to have water and food next to each other. At that time I was finding jugs I used for watering plants knocked over. But his water bowl was untouched.
So now there is a bowl for him on the landing and another on a table.
