Hi
I'm just wondering what wet food everybody feeds their babies? The vet wants me to feed her some 1-2 times a week just so she is used to it if she ever had to eat it (if she got sick or whatnot). I'm not worried about feeding her more wet then the vet suggests as she does drink a TON of water, so she does not need the extra hydration.
I feed Astrid Orijen cat and kitten kibble, and they do not make a wet food. So before I start trying out random cans, I thought I'd ask for some tried and tested brands.

EXTRA: here's a picture of her being a creep and sleeping with her eyes open lol

We use Science Diet both wet and dry with no issues. Here is a good poll on cat food as well - what brand cat food do you use? :)

@Maddie Astrid is so cute!! I like it when they sleep with their eyes open. My girl Jade does the same sometimes.

I feed Jade Royal Canin Gastro Instestinal as wet food (and another brand kibbles-without grain). It works good for her. I know some people don't want to feed RC food. So it's up to you if you feel okay with it.
I don't know about brands of food in your area so hope others chime in.

I feed Pete Royal Canin - S/O adult wet food. Its the veterinarian grade that my vet recommended, haven't had any issues whatsoever.

but like @Toa and Ross says some people dont want to feed RC. In my own personal opinion I find it odd (unless of course
the animal has allergies or a sensitive stomach) but how unhealthy can it be if your Vet is recommended it. But thats just
my two cents!

I had a very sickly cat that some b@@@@@@ threw acid over and had stomach problems, diarrhoea, eczema, burns, weight loss and so on. Four weeks on royal canin, weight normalised, his fur grew back beautifully thick and soft, his skin and acne healed and diarrhoea stopped despite his stomach being wrecked from the acid. Everyone has preferences but it has worked wonders for my fluffy boy so I use it for my stinky pooped naked!

Thanks guys :)
@Mal @Toa and Ross Royal Canin doesn't bother me. The family dog ate it until he heard us call it puppy food... and he was a 9-10 months old, we wanted to finish the bag. He had a food strike till he had "dog" food XD well I call it a protest... we only switched so that we could buy his food in town, not drive 3 hours to get it.
