If they like Science Diet Kitten, they will love Wellness kitten-- trust me. I have fed both b/c Wellness is expensive. That is what I give my foster kittens who come to me sick and/or malnourished to really get them going and put on weight. Now that I have two that are no longer sick and

I have been feeding Mandy PetGuard wet food and Greenies treats. For dry, she gets Nutro. She's thriving on this--you would never know that she is leukemia positive. Her eyesight has not deteriorated since I have had her. She was totally deaf when I got her but that doesn't seem to bother

Hi Kenzie, The general opinion around here is that there is better quality canned food, though you also don't want to buy them food they won't eat. In other words, eating low quality food is better than not eating at all. I'm feeding Wellness canned and dry to my little FeLV+ girl, and she loves
