Kitten Feeding: Kittens generally nibble solid foods at 3-4 weeks of age. Keep moistened Fancy Feast available to these kittens at all times. After weaning, at 6-8 weeks of age, kittens will normally eat dry or moistened food at will. If water is added, use no more than 1 part warm (not hot) liquid to 3 parts Fancy Feast, changing frequently to ensure freshness. Feeding for Reproduction: Fancy Feast provides the extra nutrition needed by reproducing females in stages of gestation and lactation. Food consumption may vary during gestation, so feed the amount needed to maintain the pregnant female’s good body condition. Food intake may double or even quadruple during lactation. Feeding Tip: Changes in your pet’s diet should be made gradually to allow your pet to become accustomed to a new food. Substitute small amounts of the new food for the old food, gradually increasing the amount of the new food while decreasing the old food, over a period of 7-10 days. Water: Adequate water intake is necessary to maintain your cat’s health and body functions. Provide fresh water in a clean bowl daily. For your pet’s health, see your veterinarian regularly. Store in a cool, dry place.

happy with the pet food but not the service

i am very happy, rather my cats are very happy with fancy feast chicken formula. i ordered 2 bags of that but recieved the filet mignon one instead. my cats do like that also but not as much as the ones i ordered. considering the price of return shipping i decided it best to keep the cat food since it was cheaper in price than from the stores.

Has a ton of fillers, but the cats like the taste

Okay, I admit it.
I was sucked in my the most adorable, romantic commercials for a cat food product that I have
ever seen. I vowed to buy at least some Fancy Feast each week just to show my support for that commercial! LOL

The cats love the wet food. It is very expensive, and from what I have read on the labels, you are
definitely paying for the IMAGE, not the quality or quantity of the food. (The cans are only 3 ounces
compared with 5.5 ounces in the other can styles.) I still get it, and they love the ones with cheese the most.

So, I thought we’d give the dry food a try. I had my husband grab a bag when he was at the grocery store.
How bad could it be, right? Same company, same “gourmet” promotion on the foods, so surely it has great stuff
in it, right? Well, shocker – NOPE.

Fancy Feast is made by the Purina company in St Louis, MO. They are the same ones who make the generic dog chow,
cat chow, rabbit chow, ________ (fill in the blank) critter chow. They are all full of fillers that animals don’t need,
because it is cheap to manufacture. Why I thought this might be different, I do not know.

First off, food mfgs have found the kitty equivalent of addictive MSG, and load their foods with it.
This one is no different. Note that BOTH our cats went crazy over this food, inhaling it out of my hand
before I could even get more out of the package. Fancy Feast knows how to make things that smell/taste good to cats.
However, most food mfgs know how to make things that TASTE good – how they got there, well, you might not really want to know.

Here’s the ingredients list (which is in the order of the QUANTITY of the item) for this “gourmet” cat chow – bear with me, this is
a really long list of iffy ingredients, artificial junk and food coloring):

Brewers Rice
Poultry By Product Meal
Animal fat preserved with mixed tocopherols
Ground Yellow Corn
Soybean Meal
Animal Liver Flavor
Phosphoric Acid
Calcium Carbonate (in case they get indigestion?! This is what’s in Tums!)
Natural & Artificial Flavors
Potassium Chloride
Dried Yeast
Choline Chloride
Added Color, Red 40, Yellow 5, Blue 2 and “other colors” (Why?!?)
Zinc Sulfate
Ferrous Sulfate
Vitamin E Supplement
Manganese Sulfate
Vitamin A Supplement
Calcium Pantothenate
Thiamine Mononitrate
Copper Sulfate
Riboflavin Supplement
Vitamin B12 Supplement
Folic Acid
Vitamin D3 Supplement
Calcium Iodate
Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (a form of Vit K)
Sodium Selenite.

Sounds yummy, huh?
The meat is way down the list, after all the corn, soybean and rice fillers and glutens.

How on earth does cat food need artificial food dyes? The cats won’t care.
There are many known reactions to food dyes in people – I am sure our pets don’t need it either.
Was the food too yellow with all the grain meal and gluten, or too white from all the fats?

So, the cats love it. I will now consider this the equivalent of a bag of potato chips for humans –
okay some times, but NOT all the time. I’ll have to watch our oldest cat. He gets super itchy with wheat
grain or gluten in foods, so I’ll watch for reactions to the corn.

Cats are carnivorous, and do not eat grains in the wild. However, especially with the manufacturing plant
smack dab in farming country, they can apparently get all kinds of leftover grains cheap?

If you buy this for your kitties, just know that you are buying the IMAGE more than a quality food.
This is not really different than the super cheap pet food.

Overall, I was really disappointed to read that ingredients list, when they could do SO much better for our pets.
We’ll use this as their treats, rather than their main dry food. We’ll stick with our Blue Buffalo for that, which is
grain free and actually has meat for the first ingredient!

Fancy Feast – marketing genius, but sloppy on the nutrition.

must be good

All of my cats seem to love this food. This line of Fancy Feast products are the best Purina has made. I have tried other foods in the past that the cats could not digest properly. They do not have a problem digesting this one. Great product.

Kitty “crack”

We have a multi-cat household (oldest is 16 yrs and youngest is 6 months)and they all love this dry cat food. Fancy Feast has definitely found the right taste combination to make my cats purr over their food. Our young cats especially thrive on it and have beautiful coats–glossy and smooth. If I run out of this food, my cats go crazy so I put it on auto-order to get it each month.
