BW,
I know it's understandable to panic and worry.  But, I've noticed with my cats, they seem to love something new. The first day or so.  Then I'd go out and buy a bunch more.  They'd hardly touch it the next day.  After donating lots of cans/brands to the shelter or rescue, I learned not to buy a lot after the first feeding.  My vet said this is pretty common behavior in cats.  I have better luck to rotate among brands, now, though some they have never wanted to go back to.  Just an observation I wanted to share.  Maybe others here have experienced this.

My experience has been exactly the same as Spartycats'!  Plus my cats' eagerness to eat a given food seems to vary by the lot number--I've found that if they won't eat a given lot number, they will often eat a different lot later on of the same flavor. I don't think this means there is anything wrong with it--I just think it means there is variation they can detect, and cats can be picky little buggers, particularly seniors.  This is why I rotate.  (And throw in a hyperthyroid cat like one of mine, and the situation becomes even more extreme.  What she loves one day, she won't touch the next.)

Spartycats and Catbird,  Well, it is extremely frustrating and anxiety producing.   I have on a couple occasions called companies, and was told by a couple, that I should take back the food and get the very next day's lot, (on the julian calendar)  and that I didn't have to wait for the next month, just the next day which would be a totally different catch (fish) or batch of meat.

The only company that I have not had such a severe problem with is the FF. I have had problems with that too, Usually, they don't turn it down till I buy a new case.  usually if they will eat one can in a case they, or most of them,  will eat all the others.
Fortunately, Sweetie has been coming and asking for food more regularly now.  I am back to FF, and wonder if I should feed the Polynesian BBQ, if Weruva is having problems.
I am too old for all of this now. Just don't have the physical strength or emotional fortitude any longer.   I remember when I used to take all that for granted.  Will end this before I start griping and complaining more.
Have some floors to scrub now before my strength fails again.
Thank you again for your support and information.

From my experience, the problem seemed to be centered on the several Weruva flavors that have that shredded chicken. The company said it was a problem with "the mix" for a certain date range, but I am not so sure. I don't know offhand what Poly. Barbq has, I think fish.
BW I agree with you and feel the same way-
we shouldn't have to go through this, especially considering the prices of some of this food!!!
I remember years ago with many cats, once we found a food and flavors they liked they consistently and happily ate it none of this hit or miss "by the batch" stuff.

Meowli, Yes, that's right. In the old days, If we found a food they liked, they always liked it, no worrying about which month, or which day and batch it was. 
The good ole days.  My son gets irritated with me when I talk about how things were, and says it is just my looking back fondly, BUT I think I look back fondly because so many things actually were better then. 
At least  things that were critical to our quality of life, like an unadulterated food supply. 
I do enjoy all the techno advances, we all enjoy and can be helped by the internet, cell phones, tablets etc.  but we have lost things too.  I am trying to find someone to do carpenter work now, and I recall back when you could get a good, quality grade of reliable work done.  People took pride in doing excellent work.  Now, I have personally had experience with a few examples of abominable workmanship, and my son too, has had some unbelievably bad work done, so he doesn't know who to recommend, and when I asked my insurance company, they said they have had so many complaints that they are no longer permitted to make any recommendations at all.

I used to ask my eldest son to do such things for me, and knew they would be done right, and LAST, but since all his surgery and medivac trips, I would not dream of bothering him with anything.
My other son  is enormously helpful with all my techological issues.  But at the moment, I  need some quality carpentry!  I'll keep looking and hopefully will find someone.  Wish I were younger and stronger.  I know some women are capable of doing carpentry, and I would be willing to try and learn, (if I were younger.)  I have a friend who put in her own kitchen and bathroom flooring and even some paneling.  She is remarkably handy with all sorts of things, her father taught her as she was growing up.

Have a good evening, and thank you for your support.
