When I first adopted Agent Romanoff, I purchased a lot of new cat things that very day for her from the pet store. One of those items was cat food. Since it’d been years since I last had a cat, I didn’t know what brand of food to get for her. There seemed to be an endless amount of possibilities for cats, not just in brand but the different flavors within the brands themselves, and I didn’t know Agent Romanoff’s preference.
I finally decided to go with Simply Nourish Source: Chicken & Turkey Recipe because it was on sale and a small enough bag that if she didn’t like it, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal. I went with chicken flavor because what cat doesn’t like chicken flavor? I figured it was a safe bet.
I took Agent Romanoff home, got her settled in, and poured the dry food into her bowl. The dry food was shaped into what looked like little fish. Agent Romanoff checked out her food and I waited to see what her response was.
She ate the food without any hesitation. Hurray!
The Simply Nourish Source: Chicken & Turkey Recipe bag let me reseal it, which I really liked because I didn’t have to use a clothesline pins to close the bag up every time I had to refill Agent Romanoff’s bowl.
Soon enough, the bag was starting to run out and I went to the pet store to replace her food with the same bag. It was a proven winner for the both of us and I wasn’t going to argue with it. Except when I went to the pet store, I couldn’t find the bag at all. I walked up and down the cat food aisles looking for it and it wasn’t there. Granted, I couldn’t remember the name of the brand, but I thought I could recognize the bag’s image pretty easily.
Nope, it wasn’t there at all. That’s what I get for purchasing a clearance item. 😉
Okay, no big deal. I could purchase a different bag of dry food for Agent Romanoff and hoped she liked that one. I finally chose Whole Earth Farms: Grain Free Recipe with Real Chicken because it was on sale and it was a small bag size. The flavor was chicken, at least, since I knew Agent Romanoff liked chicken. I bought it and took it home.
The dry food pieces were a lot smaller than the other brand and were spherical instead of shaped like fish. I mixed the two dry foods together since I still had some left from the first bag and waited to see what Agent Romanoff’s reaction to it was.
She enjoyed it just as much as the first bag. Yay! I didn’t have to worry about returning this bag of food. However, while my cat enjoyed the food, I was not enjoying the packaging. The first bag from Simply Nourish Source had a component that let me reseal the bag. This one from Whole Earth Farms had no such thing on its bag so I use two clothesline pins to close the bag. It’s a slight hassle to deal with, especially since I didn’t have to deal with it with the other brand. My roommate uses a container and pours all the cat food from a bag into it when it comes to cat storage, and maybe someday I’ll do that, but not today.
Considering Agent Romanoff liked both bags equally in taste, it comes down to my convenience as her human. I prefer Simply Nourish Source: Chicken & Turkey Recipe over Whole Earth Farms: Grain Free Recipe with Real Chicken because I could reseal the bag. When Whole Earth Farms: Grain Free Recipe with Real Chicken runs out, I’m going to go back to the pet store and find something else for Agent Romanoff to try.
