The ladies love this... but...
January 31, 2019
I was **HAPPY!!!!**! to find the Ocean Fish variety of this food on Amazon. We had been getting it Walmart, but those lazy schmucks don't merchandise ever, and I got sick of seeing it's empty spot on the shelf, and Petsmart has limited bags of it, always and it's never there when I am. (We had been eating the Chicken flavour prior to discovering the Ocean Fish on here, it's usually 'readily available' in most places..) I have ordered 2 bags so far. The first bag, no complaints. Lasts me 2 weeks. I ordered another bag last night, it arrived this morning....
I am a HUGE fan of the bag-style of this food- I had a "Whiskas sent me a bag of BUGS" incident a few years back, you know the bags- the fold/glue type bags. Nope, never again. These bags are zipper sealed. LOVE IT. The bag I received this morning had no poof to it. (pin hole somewhere I reckon.) Hmm. Don't love that. When I poured it out into the container, it looked different. Hmm. Kinda faded, not it's 'usual color'. Don't love that either. It passed the sniff test, it smelled like it should. Not rancid or anything. Just looked different. The ladies ate it, per usual. Nobody has barfed or anything, I'm a little OCD and probably equally paranoid about these things.. I'd LOVE it if Amazon could take care when boxing these bags of food, to ensure they're not punctured to ensure freshness. (if you have to puncture it to get it in the box, use a bigger box and fewer air pillows!) I don't want to have to go back to Walmart! EVER!! **cries!!** Haven't been to Walmart since before Xmas, don't wanna go back!!
So we enjoy the food, normally, Cat-Momma paranoia aside. If, when I reorder in 2 weeks, the bag shows up as expected (poofy, sealed and not with faded kibbles) I may give back the star I deducted for today's bag.
Also losing a star because: WHY isn't Ocean Fish available in 2.86 kg bags? WHY???! Small bag or giant bag only. I can get the 2.86 in Chicken, but to buy 2x Ocean Fish is about $6 more because there is no medium bag. Hey Nestle- get on it!
