TNR is Trap Neuter Return. Return,not Release. Return, specifically, because the cats are put back into their own territory.

Thanks for the clarification and that’s what we do since we are animal lovers who don’t discriminate ❗️

Once we release them, they run initially but then return never to leave.

Yes I understand your meanings, but the correct term for TNR is Trap Neuter Return. It's not interchangeable with the word release, because release implies letting them go just anywhere.


The initials TNR officially stand for Trap Neuter Return.

The distinction is important, is why I am harping on it.

The answer to the OP's question is "it depends." Before Chewy was bought by Petsmart, IMO, the prices were better. I initially bought most food from Chewy (we have 4 cats). Then Amazon started to have a better price on the food we bought.

Then a pet store opened near our house (a regional chain called Pet Supplies Plus). With coupons and sales, I can do far better locally now, so that's what I do.

My advice to you is to price around both locally and online and see what is the best deal.

I order from Chewy, and if I'm running low I'll go to Petsmart. Bandit eats NutroMax, and Petco doesn't carry all of the varieties of. You just can't beat the convenience of having cases of cases of cat food delivered to your door, as opposed to lugging the cans home from the store.

That's great about Pet Supplies Plus. They are anti-declaw!

Can anyone attest to this? Thanks
I use Target subscription or Amazon subscribe and save, I just check back and forth to see who is the lowest. Target will have specials for store pickup. Right now they are running a special, spend $40 get $10 off, spend $60, get $15 off. I stocked up on cat litter, cat food and treats today with that special. Also sometimes they I constantly go back and forth between the three. Food typically winds up being the same, litter is nearly always cheaper at Target. I quit using Chewy subscribe and save because they give you a very short notice to delay or skip a shipment then I wind up food before I needed it. Chewy was just a little more hassle than Amazon or Target because of that and I didn't find the prices to be any better, usually it is about the same.

I also keep the favorite cat supplies in my Amazon shopping cart save for later, when you visit the cart it notifies you of any price increases or decreases. If I see a good sale I grab it then whether they need it or not.

I don't find any of the stores or online retailers are always cheaper, they all just run various deals, sales and coupons.
