Just received an e-mail from petfooddirect notifying me that the Fromme canned is back in stock.
I've never tried it but it looks like something I could get my Fancy Feast Fiend Ripley to eat.

I know it's made in Thailand in a supposedly human food facility.  But I can't help being suspicious of
anything made in Asia.

Does anyone have experiences or opinions about this food?

Thanks

It is made in China.

I tried to get my cats to eat this food a few different times and they just do not like it at all.  This surprised me because I have a cat that typically goes nuts for either strips or chunks of meat and that is what this food has.  I think they don't like because most of the flavors have tomato paste (or some kind of tomato product) as an ingredient and I can imagine that it is not a flavor they care for.  When I looked at the ingredient panel that was the only thing that jumped out at me as something they might not like.  The sauce seems to have a red/orange tint to it as if they use a lot of tomato.

I'm sure it is a quality pet food, my cats just don't care for it.

I picked up a can on Friday for my IBD cat.  I really did not want to use a product that was canned in China...but have seen several posts various places about the quality of the food.  IBD cats can be so difficult to find something they like.  Well, I've only been giving him a small quantity of the tuna/chicken variety but he seems to like it.

I tried a couple of cans of this back in the spring.  I have 4 cats who mostly like chunky food too.  None of them would touch it.

My 4 cats were Fancy Feast addicts and the Fromm is one of only a few wet foods I can get them all to eat on a consitant basis.  They especially love the Tuna flavor and the Tuna and Chicken flavor.  They hated the beef, but they have have never been fond of beef in any brand.

Thanks, guys.  Let's see, three cat families wouldn't eat it, and one cat family of Fancy Feast Fiends did.  Sounds like
I should try it, but not buy a case.

I can't get any of my cats to eat beef, either. They all prefer chicken.

I was recently told by an online retailer, Barks-n-Bubbles, that the Fromme's shredded chicken canned formula is on backorder and that the beef canned formula has been discontinued. Pet Food Direct also shows the shredded chicken to be unavailable (it had a "rain check.")

I received the tuna canned formula. My cat ate a little but wasn't particularly wild about it. Like others who have posted, I believe he's turned off by tomato base in the sauce.

If anyone who is interested in the Fromme's DRY cat foods, be forewarned that their kibble is small, round pellet-shaped like KumpiKat. My cats just won't/can't eat this shape. It seems to get caught up inside their gums.

Funny you mention the size of KUMPIKAT my cats vomit from the size of the kibble also, they do much better having it mixed in with a larger kibble.

My cats really love the tuna and tuna + chicken flavors.  But in early January when I went to get some at a local health food store - wow!  The price had jumped from $1.89 a can to $2.29!  Since my paycheck has not increased accordingly, I checked with another store that doesn't carry the product, but will order it.  They said it would be $1.89 a can, plus a 10% discount for ordering a case.  I ordered one case of each, and was surprised to see that the tuna was in a smaller size can than the tuna + chicken (down from 6-point-some ounces to 4.5).  Fromm's website now shows these smaller size cans, and the flavors have changed (shredded duck... chicken+duck+salmon... chicken+duck+tuna... flaked salmon... tuna).  Hope the store can still get me some of those large size cans.  Right now I can split one can among all the cats... some just lick the sauce, others want the meat.  With the smaller cans, it's going to have to be two.  I've tried many other brands, and we keep coming back to this one.

Two thumbs up! My kitten love the Shredded Duck Entree and Tuna entree. Will lick off her plate clean. One down point is the pieces are huge. At only 5 month old, eating the large chunks can be a huge challenge. I normally mash the meat with a fork or just cut them into bite size pieces. Otherwise, she would bring a chunk of meat elsewhere and eat. Makes cleaning after her a nightmare!

Also, Shredded Duck Entree has a jelly like consistency gravy from the tomato paste. My kitten loves it but I know many cats don't.

I've noticed they've changed their can size. Right now, they only come in 4.5oz can.

Well, I did dig into my life savings to order the new USA made cans.  We tried Chicken, Duck & Salmon pate.
Nobody likes it.  Roll Eyes

It's quite a soft pate- looks and smells nice.  In fairness to the food, "The Boys" only like pieces and gravy types of canned food (they eat no other brands that are pate), and the older girls - well, they don't like much of anything these days.
