    Okay, I followed Binky's list of wet food and the list that was for "no gluten and <10% carbs).....but I am still a little scared because I see that those items have not been updated (some since 2007?) I may be wrong.

    I would like get some of the names of Fancy Feast you all are using and know (from home testing) that they are okay to feed?

    Cautious Paige :oops:

    I use the non-seafood Gourmet line of Fancy Feast. The gourmet line is a pate, and less than 10% carbs. Also gluten free. The boxes they come in (if you buy a case) have a red stripe around the top edge with the word "Gourmet." The flavors are listing in this page from the old Board: http://www.felinediabetes.com/glutenfree.htm

    There are a lot of brands besides Fancy Feast that are grain free and many contain higher quality ingredients. The quality/source of the protein does have an impact. Unless you live in a small town without a pet store, try to find Wellness, Merrick's or some of the other grain-free brands that use primarily muscle meat as opposed to organ meat.

    Being cautious is good! When in doubt, check the list of ingredients; that's not allowed to be out of date by more than 6 months.

    It's my observation that Fancy Feast has been pretty consistent for some years. But there have been recent reports that they may be changing soon.

    Well I gave the gang some Fancy Feast Turkey and Giblets this evening and it seems to have been a hit. I also purchased some of the Beefeaters Freeze Dries Salmon. BOY DID THEY ALL LOVE THAT STUFF!

    Thanks to all that have offered their advice. I just can't get over how wonderful everyone is on this board. Yay!!

    I have fed my guys several types of FF and Wellness and Nature's Variety canned and in all honesty, the only one they really like consistently is FF turkey and giblets. I buy it by the case!

    They eat that and Nature's Variety Chicken raw exclusively.

    The last time I gave FF it seemed to contain 26% carbs!!!
    So not all varieties of FF are ok.
    Now I'm calculating all the food I give before I give it. Made a simple spreadsheet for it where I have to fill in only the numbers mentioned on the can (in the Netherlands always Guaranteed Analysis) and the rest happens by itself.

    Good luck.

    You can get it at Petco or Petsmart. I would buy only a few cans of each to try. I have foster kittens and my own cats and I can't really sell them on the Wellness, once in a while they will go for it, but FF has usually been the one thing they will eat consistently.

    Oddly, I've found the small cans of Wellness are better for my cats than the large. Not sure why or if it's just may cats but they wont eat any Wellness flavors if I buy the larger can.

    My Petsmart does not sell Wellness, so go to my PetCo or other specialty shop. I too, cannot get the larger cans - but have to get smaller cans of everything - because like addicts - they will not eat it unless they hear that "fresh crack" of the can :D I try to only feed the higher end, no by products - but sometimes will treat them to FF. Thankfully we have no known allergies - so they also love the Nurto High Protein Low Carb food choices too.
