I have a conundrum...I will receive cat food that my cats hate

I forgot that I created a recurring delivery..before I discovered my cats hated that food.

It will be delivered on my doorstep, but I would LOVE for a local pet care place to retrieve it..

How can I make that happen quietly? Husband will not be pleased!

Husband wants kits to be fed food they don't like, as he thinks it saves on cat food!

HELP!

1. I donated Angel Majiks' uneaten food to catwelfare, a rescue

The 2 kittens turned up their noses at it. So call a local cat rescue.

15. Too bad they wont take them back.

I definitely donít force my cats to eat food they donít like. Itís funny thoughólike people, they are all different. One will eat just about anything, when heís hungry; another will eat any dry food but almost no wet food; the third is picky and random about it. They all hate the best, natural food. They are all rescues and I figure for the middle one in particular, before she was abandoned, she was fed nothing but dry food because it was cheap.

18. Unless a cat is starved, how do you force a cat to eat food they don't like?

I don't advocate starving a cat so they'll eat the food. Just saying that would be the only way I can think of the make a cat eat something. Cats don't do anything they don't want to do.

8. Your local food pantry

might need food. People who are low income have a very hard time feeding pets. Our pantry loves pet food and even kitty litter. People ask for it ALL the time.

10. That's why I don't buy cat food in quantity

The minute you do, they decide they don't like it anymore.
I did use Chewy when one of our cats needed a prescription food, they were way cheaper than getting it at the vet and the auto-delivery was super convenient. When that cat died I had a 17-lb. unopened bag of it and contacted them so I could return it. They gave me my $$ back but did not want the food, suggested I donate it to a shelter which I did. Great company.

17. Yes! I just ordered two bags

of my kitty 's food because one bag didn't quite last the month. As soon as they arrived, he decided he really didn't like it any more.

13. You have several alternatives

You can donate it to your local SPCA animal shelter. Or, you can buy some cheap cans of tuna fish, chopped liver, etc and mix into the dreaded cat food. Tuna is pretty hard for cats to resist.
