Buythecase.net — Why pay more?


As shopping moves online and gas prices intermittently rise and fall, companies like this, that offer home delivery in bulk of name brand products, make more and more sense.

Half the time when I want to get tuna for Gray Cat — yes, that's his name, don't ask — the store doesn't have the good stuff (below)


so I end up buying what turns out to be pretty much the canned tuna in water-equivalent of pet food for a significantly higher price.

Using this site I found the tuna I wanted for a whole lot less than the per-can equivalent price at Kroger.

This site has a much wider selection in many areas than does Amazon and is my go-to alternative.

I have used this store (and they do appear on Amazon, but usually last item of list of thousands...) a few times and been satisfied.

Except one item - carried for a while but at $2.99/unit while the local market (StopandShop/PeaPod) has had it on "sale" for $2.00 for over a year now. Ah, well, they dropped the item anyway.

(If you must know, "Parmalat" shelf-stable milk. $2.00/liter, or about $8.00 per gallon, but since I only shop once or twice a month and regular [$3.99/gallon here] milk goes bad in 3-5 days and I go through a quart a day...)

Yes-- what Jonathan said. They shouldn't eat tuna all the time, but I know you know that already. They will hustle you with a vengeance for the solid white albacore, though. At least every one that's ever owned me has. None of that chunk light stuff. You'd think something so good and smelly would be desirable in all its forms to a cat. I don't even think it's the taste; they just figure out that it costs more, and demand that display of devotion and fealty.

Always with the don't ask, you don't want to know. Sheesh.

Unless it has supplementary Taurine it's not really suitable as a cat food. As a treat from time to time it would be fine.
