    Have you noticed that since the company was sold, it’s gone down hill? First you can’t find it anywhere because it’s out of stock for months. Then when you find one flavor that you want, they charge TWENTY DOLLARS MORE FOR THE SAME VOLUME BUT SMALLER CANS!! I’ve been trying everywhere to buy mackerel and lamb and it hasn’t been in stock. 80.00 for 24 small cans. My cat eats two of those a day. That’s 80.00 for 12 days of cat food. My guys were used to it . Now I have to give them food that isn’t as good. Why did this new owner screw up this well running company?
