He says he took that action because his cat Chuckles suffered kidney disease and died in January after eating those flavors of Pet Pride food.

"As the terms of the clandestinely negotiated settlement have yet to be disclose, as a result of further stalling tactics, I guess we'll just have to wait for the punch line to the April Fool's day announcement," said Earl, whose cat died in January 2007 after eating Menu Food's Pet Pride food.

It’s a good idea to first remove all dry food from your house. The residual odor of kibble may distract your cat. If your pet is used to eating wet (canned/pouched) food, please use a low carbohydrate variety (such as Fancy Feast gourmet chicken or turkey feast for cats). Use low carbohydrate canned/pouched pet food that do NOT contain gravy, corn, wheat, gluten, fruits, vegetables or grains of any kind. This is important as many cats can be allergic to these additives, and, as an obligate carnivore, your cat does not have the gastrointestinal system to digest grains & other carbohydrates.

Target sells their own brand of a Cat Food similar to Fancy Feast (the ingredients look almost identical!), but the closest Target to me is about 30 minutes away! I was in Kroger the other day (about 2 minutes away!) and I noticed they sell their own brand of Cat Food (Pet Pride) and their 'Dinner' versions seem to be similar to the 'Classic' Fancy Feast products (No wheat gluten, etc)... at 5 (5.5oz) cans for $1.75, that's a great deal!
