Almo Nature - kitty approved

I have been feeding Angel a mix of wet and dry for the past year. With some raw once in a while.

At first I had her on the Wellness canned, which she likes, however lately (2 months now?) I have started giving her Almo Nature. This stuff seems really high quality. When I open a can, it has not been processed into a paste or blob. You can actually see the chunks or meat and big flakes of fish, even the smell is really nice. If somebody didn't know, when they open a tin, they could easily think that it was a can of salmon or tuna that was meant for human consumption.

The ingredient list for the "100% tuna and white bait in broth" has all of...wait for it...THREE ingredients. Tuna, water sufficient for cooking, white bait.

It costs slightly more, but I don't mind and Angel seems to like it.

If anyone is interested, I can take some pictures next time I open a can.

I've bought Almo the odd time as a treat. Not sure but I think it's meant as a treat not as a regular diet.

Hi,

Pattymac is right. Almo "is intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only" as written on the can. It does not contain taurine which cats need in their diet. My cats also like it. I give them only the chicken varieties as a snack between meals or before going to bed once or twice a week. True, it doesn't look like other can food!

Thanks Pattymac, I had read the can, but I figured since I was mixing in dry food as well that it was fine. I have gone back to her regular Wellness wet can food for everyday feeding with the Almo, maybe once every five days or so.

My cats like it and I'll use it if I happen to have something they don't particularly like...sometimes their tastes change in a flash! Coco really loves tuna and that's about the only time he gets excited about food.
