    Hello -- my Isaac has been in remission for three years.

    I am tired of opening those Fancy Feast cans and looked into Meow Mix Pate Toppers and Tender Favorites. I emailed the company and they said that AS FED the carbs "range from about 0.36% to 3.86% carbohydrates on an As Fed basis."

    This sounds acceptable to me, but I wanted others opinions before I made a change. Any insight would be appreciated.

    While the carb content sound fine, a quick check of the Tender Favorites ingredients shows tapioca starch and SUGAR in the two flavours I looked at. I'd check the labels for suspect ingredients. The Pate Toppers appear to be Ok from a cursory check but again I'd double check the ingredient lists.

    Just curious, what is it about the Fancy Feast cans you don't like? I hate those pull tops but I just use a teaspoon under the tab so I can grab it easier then it's not so bad trying to get them open. :)

    Thanks for your quick response. I am being a lazy mom. I just hate dealing with the pull tops. The catalyst of my quest was when I cut my finger right on the knuckle. I wish that FF came in the plastic cups or at least in 5.5 oz cans.

    Again, thanks -- I used to be quite the expert in this field, but after three years (and only FF) my cat has been very healthy and my expertise has faded. I will leave well enough alone and stick with what works. I feel selfish for even asking.

    No need for apologies and you shouldn't feel lazy or selfish! Anyone who has been at this for any time realizes it gets "old" and we are always looking for ways to make our lives a little easier. OUCH on the knuckle fiasco! I'll be thinking about that when I open my can of FF in the morning and being very careful! And congrats on getting Isaac into remission and keeping him there. You are a super great Mama Bean! :bighug:
