Cat food is a major purchase for us since we feed 5 strays at least 2 times a day and often more times since a few of them will beg for more occasionally in the evening.

Between Petco and the grocery store, we’re constantly dealing with canvas bag full of canned food and we have been told that Chewy is very economical even when delivered.

Can anyone attest to this? Thanks

Yes, but wondering how the cost compares?

Regarding prices, simply do side by side comparisons when you shop and order from whichever store has the better price or promotion on the day of your purchase.

Chewy is owned by Petsmart now (2017), if that matters to you.

Chewy's superior customer service hasn't deteriorated (yet) since the take over, but I can't speak for Petco's customer service having never used them.

I get Chewy coupons in my email, I must check it out now. OP have you looked for a TNR in your area, becasue otherwise, you may be feeding 40 cats in 6 months & a 100+ in a year. They can multiply very fast, TNR is a good way to go (IMO)

When we were feeding ferals & strays, Moma used to bing the kittens with her, to show them the food source aghhhhh so we were very lucky that our county gave out vouchers for free neutering, we had to request & wait for them, but it was worth it to stem the flow of kittens, who face a bleak life. But some humane societies will offer it also or a rescue group.

Yes, I order from Chewy 90% of the time; and the rest of the time I go over to PetSmart when her 'stock' is running low. That's for both the litter and canned food. Their delivery service is excellent, they confirm everything before they ship, and since I always order more than $50+ worth, there are no shipping charges. Of course, there is the occasional toy that Miss BeBe chooses from their catalog as well. This way we get a box big enough so she thinks it is her play house.

Not sure what TNR stands for, however, we have one cat and all strays in the area soon learn we are cat friendly and they get fed and protected. I’ve personally trapped 7 of them, brought them to the local shelter and had them all neutered along with two of them that were carrying at the time. Two of them were hit by cars and I had to bury them, so now we’re down to five.

The wife feeds them as often as they like and two hang out in beds at our front door while the others hang out on the deck chairs and sleep in pet beds that we provided. Their sharing our modest retirement income with us!

Sorry, TNR is trap neuter, release. We neutered about 30 cats, it was great not to have kittens arriving every month. I am so glad you have managed to neuter so many of them, & thank you for making their life better.
