Anyone else having problems with ff? Sammy refuses to eat Chopped Grill now. I usually don't buy anything classic but he seems to prefer eating the gravy with wheat gluten. He is eating some classics.

The only FF that I buy now that has been consistently eaten happily over time with only one or two refusals (so far) is the Seafood Feast Classic.  The girls split a 3 oz can and it is like a small meal, treat,  or bedtime snack. Other FF flavors seem to be so hit-or-miss and they don't like them. I do feed mostly Earthborn or Fussie Cat, or Beyond brand foods for main meals with an occasional Friskies Shreds/gravy thrown in but they still love their FF best of all!
FF does seem to have a problem with consistency of quality for some of their flavors. Ingredient sourcing varies probably. Maybe they can't mess up fish as easily as they can with other meats.

I also am having a great deal of difficulty with Fancy Feast, it seems to me that I throw most of it in the garbage, my 11 cats often will not even try it, and frequently when I pop the lid they seem to smell it and just walk away before I even put it in their dish.
Heaven knows what is in it nowadays, but after reading Susan Thixton's (sp) latest report about all the food containing NON slaughtered meat of animals dead from every conceivable disease and the worn out egg bearing chickens, ground up whole, i am really afraid to even buy it and I NEED more canned food now.  I just bought a bag of the 6 fish orijin, but they won't even try that.  I am disappointed because they love the cat and Kitten Orijin and I wanted them to have another choice, since I fear buying more canned.  For now, I will have to use up the FF I had, if I can get someone to eat it.  I tried some people chicken, I was eating and they dont' want it.  For all I know their stomachs are upset.
FF just keeps charging more and more and their food gets worse and worse.  They keep adding all sorts of new ingredients, like cheese I think to cover the fact that the meat may be rotten. 

Now I was just told that Orijin is going to be manufacturing their cat and kitten food in Kentucky, so I won't even be able to have confidence in their food once they start making it in the us.  According to the article, none of the states enforce the regulations about not using NON slaughtered animals.  That is scary.  It is a long article and everyone should read it.  I put the link  in two threads

Try FussieCat  My cats love it. However, it is a small can and I pay about $1.20 a can for it. The cans are about the size of  the FF cans.

BW,
The article appears to be referring to dry food, not canned, by my reading.

Mandy,
Oh my, then I am in trouble because my cats like their dry food, its the canned they want no part of.
I am getting Orijin cat and kitten, Life's abundance,  Hill's perfect weight, (which they like a lot and must have tons of flavor enhancers in it) and for the skinniest one,  Purina Naturals because my vet said it made her cats too fat.
Doesn't seem to be making Higgs a bit fatter tho.  I will once again look over the ingredients, but they are all pretty expensive for me, except the Purina.  I am quite concerned that Orijin is going to be manufacturing in Kentucky, and fear that will be the end to all the really good ingredients.  I'm going to call them today, but know I will not learn anything helpful.
Caylee, I cannot afford $1.20 for a small can with my 11 cats.  A shame.   I am not going to be able to continue throwing so much canned away.  Am in a quandry.  Tried some wellness, and heated it in the microwave, and some of them ate it at first, but not after being heated after being in the frig.

Am returning the bag of Orijin six fish today,  no one would even taste it except winifred, so that must go back.  They really like the Orijin cat /kitten.

BW,
You are not in trouble because your cats like dry food more than wet food.  The ingredients complained about in the article can be in the food as a legal or illegal ingredient.  I would think that the majority of pet food manufacturers use legal ingredients.  Even if people don't like what those ingredients are, if they are legal, meaning they come from properly slaughtered animal sources, they are not harmful.  The article is unnecessarily alarmist, IMO.
