An Itchmo friend let me know this was available.  I ordered the chicken pate.  Petey loved it (he's my round boy who hasn't found much he doesn't like).  Bubba and Teddy ate a bit (they did pretty well, since they don't really like most commercial canned).  Bonnie wouldn't eat it (still trying to overcome a Fancy Feast addiction).  Very smooth texture - slilghtly drier than some other pates.  Seems like a nice food.  Lotus cans their own.  (I don't see the cat food on their website yet - more on their FB page).

I've seen the dry, I'll keep my eye out for the canned.  The ingredients look good.

Mine liked the dry, when the wet shows up I'll try it.

Lotus canned recently showed up in one store here.  I have tried all the flavors.  No one likes any of it.  They'll pick at it a bit, and then ask for something else.  I had high hopes because it was a nice smooth paté, which usually goes over well here, but no luck.

Update - I ended up donating the Lotus cans.  No one was interested after the first time.

We tried one flavor but Kozy voted Nope, no thanks. 

Another one bites the dust......

They were handing out a free can, flavor of your choice, at my store the other day.  I couldn't remember which flavor Kozy had rejected before but thought I would try it again.  I came home with the Turkey flavor.  Needless to say, he refused it again.

I haven't tried this in a while, and recently mail-ordered the big cans (12.5 oz).  I figured my gang wouldn't eat it, so I'd have a special treat for my feral cats.  But everyone ate it really well - Chicken and Vegetable Pate.  I was pleased that Bubba liked it - he only really likes my homemade.

I had seen this wet food on-line before and the ingredients sounded good so I was somewhat hopeful when it came out it might be something worth trying on Sophers....but....the reviews arent giving me much hope.  If your kitties dont like it, my drama queen will make sure her rejection tops everyone elses.   Roll Eyes

Lotus has new cans "Just Juicy".  We haven't tried any yet, but simple ingredients, single proteins.  I'll post experience, when we have some.

This looks worth investigating; thanks for posting, Spartycats. If there are no fish oils, and if a store here starts carrying it, I would like to try it. When you have allergic cats, less is more! My cats never liked the other Lotus, but this may be different.

No fish oils listed in the chicken , pork or turkey & no peas in any of them . Just need someone to call & double check that & it might be worth a try .

Sticker shock warning - $2.00 - $2.21 per 5.3 oz. can.  (I ordered online.  No one in my state carries Lotus, that I know of.)  I'll probably have some really, really spoiled feral cats.  Cheesy
