For our kittne Im paying £15 for a 2kg bag or £25 for a 4kg. This seems rather a lot the 2kg I estimate is going to last us another 4 weeks so £15 for 7-8 weeks.

When the kitty increased portion size wont last as long.

Is there an alternative you'd recommend which is much cheaper

Where are you buying it? Buying online tends to be cheaper. James Wellbeloved is a good one. I buy 10kg bags online for around £39.

Originally purchased from the rspca which is fine don't begrudge that but have looked at Pets at home and it is more there. Im assuming the supermarkets don't stock these dry brands - thanks also for your other post on my other thread smile

Gosh 10kg for £39 is fab may try him on this I need to change when he hits 4 months which is in 4 weeks time Im assuming James Wellbeloved do a young cat range - do you buy off their own site?

I normally buy from either or zooplus or petplanet - they all seem to have regular offers so I compare each one whenever I buy (and then buy 60kg at a time - but that's just because I have a huge number of catssmile )

Have a look at Petmeds and Animed.

I buy Royal Canin Boxer breed from Animed its about £5.00 cheaper than other sites.

I get the Kirkland own brand dried food from Costco. It's a huge sack and (from memory) quite a bit under £20.

A vet's nurse who used to cat sit for us reckoned it was Iams.

A local refuge refused to take it as a donation until they read the nutritional analysis, and then snatched it out of our hands in case we changed our minds grin

i feed my mob harringtons dry biscuits its £4.98 for 2kgs size bag from asda and is the only one that my jasper tuxie does not lob straight back up after eating it, i have four cats and this size bag lasts one week and small kibble so suitable for small mouths i fed the feral foster kittens this as well at 6 weeks old and they loved it

We also use harringtons - I buy 4 bags a month from amazon which costs me £15ish - that feeds 5 of my 7 with the occasional meal for one of the others who is refusing to give up his kitten food at the moment.

Try zooplus bulk buying if you can afford it. Expensive the first month but you won't need to buy food for ages.
