Hey Susan, where do you get PetsMart discounted gift cards.  I have never seen 
them.  Is this one of those online places or eBay or where?


 
Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors 
too!

I spend about $1000 a month with a population that ranges from 25-40, depending 
on adoptions and new intake.  We feed primarily canned but with dry (mostly 
Kirkland Premium and the no-grain in the orange bag).  It's a big chunk of 
money every month but the cats are happy and healthy.
 
For the past year I've been planning ahead and buying discounted PetSmart gift 
cards through http://www.giftcardbin.com/ and http://www.cardpool.com/  They 
also have petco cards but nothing for Costco.  Take a look.  It really has 
helped my budget.  (I recently combined gift cards discounted by 18% with the 
PetSmart Friends & Family sale discount of 15%, and used a few random coupons.  
For awhile there I had a lot of cases of friskies stacked up in the living 
room!)

Since Homey and Nitnoy, I feed half canned and dry.  I also have water 
fountains and that makes a diffrence in how much they drink.  I have to fill up 
the 2 fountains every morning and afternoon.  Each takes 64 ounces. Course Casey
 spills some.  She likes to bat at the water before she drinks.  I never 
thought about how much per day per cat, just feed them.  I usually give about 
1/4 cup in morning, afternoon and evening of the dry Blue Buffalo and 1 can 
divided by 7.  I mix the can with 2 cans of hot water.  The heat makes it smell 
more and they always drink the liquid and later on eat the meat.
