So, I didn't see this discussed anywhere as a topic, and a quick google search didn't turn up anything eye catching for me.

If a canned food doesn't contain chicken or pork, it almost inevitably contains tuna, unless you go very high end like Ziwi Peak.

I know feeding human grade tuna more than once or twice a week is bad, and it should really only be used as treats or for medicine.  But what about when it's mixed with other meats, especially if it's not one of the main course flavors on the label?  Do cats start refusing foods that don't contain tuna if they are primarily fed foods that contain some tuna?  or is it only when tuna is the main flavor of the meal?

I don't know if I'm expressing this well.   Undecided

I feed my cats 'Fussie Cat' which have some flavors contain tuna, all the time. I've never heard not to feed tuna. Human tuna may be a whole different thing. But this regular cat food I'm feeding.

I've heard the "feeding tuna" issue and have always wondered if it's true.  Because I read it so much, I do try to limit my guys to having tuna once a week.  I'd always assumed they meant canned tuna that is meant for cats to eat.

As you might imagine, the Japanese canned cat foods I see most often here are pretty much always tuna and I wonder what Japanese feed.  (I don't actually use any Japanese cat food…)

One of my concerns with tuna is mercury content.  Because of that alone, I would be hesitant to feed it in any form every day.
