We Still Miss Nutro's Max Cat!
Oscar is my least picky cat. I often refer to him as the vacuum cleaner because he goes around after everyone has finished eating to see if there's anything they left behind.
I'm still disappointed that Max Cat is no longer available. My cats really loved that food. After months of trying different brands and flavors, I have replaced the 4 cans of Max Cat I was giving my 5 cats daily (60% of their wet food diet) with 2 large cans of Wellness's Core Signature Selects in two flavors: Shredded Boneless Chicken & Turkey Entree and Shredded Boneless Chicken & Chicken Liver Entree. I've tried other flavors, and after initial interest, they did not stick.
They eat a lot of Wellness now. Their first meal of the day is typically a can of Wellness minced poultry. I do mix it up and sometimes give them one of these instead: Blue Buffalo Flaked Chicken, Purina Beyond Chicken Beef & Carrot, or Canidae Chicken & Carrots. The first meal is not their favorite and is small. The 2nd and evening meal is a mix of Wellness Signature Selects, American Journey poultry flavor, and one tiny packet of Nutro Purrfect Portions. They still get a variety of food, but I continue to wish Nutro would bring back Max Cat.
