I give this to my 3 cats once a day as a meal. Naturally, I always keep dry food down which is the bulk of their food supplement.

The whole flesh meat in the appetizers is good, but cats need other things like liver, heart, etc. In other words, "the whole animal." They do NOT need grains or vegetables. They are carnivores and that means meat.

HOWEVER, eating just the flesh as in these appetizers will leave them missing a lot of nutrients which would be found in the entire animal. This is why Taurine is added to commercial catfood (to fend off heart disease) because of its lack in the commercial cat food which is really just a concoction.

BTW, the history of commercial cat food begins with the meat industry trying to figure out what to do with unwanted pieces of a butchered animal! Something to think about (I learned this off the cat diabetes site).

I give my guys this stuff as a topping over their regular wet food. I split one larger can (5.5 oz) of Friskies (usually PLUS) between FIVE cats and put a bit of this stuff on top, IF it's one of the types of food which they don't particularly care for. They love the appetizers, and the nice meat protein obviously appeals to them.

I pick canned food which has muscle meat as the first ingredient. My guys don't particularly like fish...not unusual, since cats don't usually catch fish in the wild (see the diabetes cat site for good info on food).

On the other hand, they also don't particularly like whatever meat I might eat! Only one is partial to ham, and all will take a bite or 2 of it, but no other meat like beef. They prefer wet canned OR their main diet which is Natural Balance (dry) reduced calorie. My kids are Siamese and I was told that crunchy food is good for them since they are more susceptible to tooth problems.

Sometimes I split 2 small cans (3 oz) of Fancy Feast Florentine between the FIVE cats in the evening. They love the gravy! LOL They don't like the other types of Fancy Feast...interesting.

I got 3 of my cats as kittens last year as rescues who were a mess...bloody diarrhea, etc. They are upright, lively, mischievous 1+ years old now. My 5 yr old, also a rescue meezer is doing pretty good on the diet I outlined. He is shy and reserved, but joins in with the kittens, "talks" to them, etc. His teeth look good, with just a bit of red at the gum line. Previously I had to get my cats' teeth cleaned by the age of 6 yrs since they were loaded with tartar and gums were inflammed looking! So this is an improvement.

Bottomline:
Appetizers are not complete food. They are what they say: appetizers. Use them for treats, and only occasionally or the cats will get "spoiled." Cats definitely prefer the taste of the appetizers...but it's not the best thing as an exclusive food.

Cat owner of 30 years, and still learning! ;)

Nothing made by Fancy Feast is very nutritious; that is why it's so cheap. If you really care about your cat's nutrition, stick with Petco's natural and holistic food. If you read this ingredients in the Fancy Feast appetizers, the first is water, the second is meat, and the rest are additives. Aside from the fact that meat should be the first ingredient, he nutrition missing here is the great stuff found in natural and holistic food, like vitamins, minerals, fruits and vegetables. Also, Fancy Feast's regular food often contains wheat and corn plus MANY additives so it's not really that "nutritious" either. Read ingredients, or speak with any holistic or good vet.

No, according to my vet and it is also printed on the Fancy Feast Appetizers package, this is only intended as a treat, and as all treats, should be given in moderation. There is the possibility that your cat will become accustomed or addicted and will refuse its regular food; and that can be very, very bad.

Question

my cat is highly allergic to many foods..Appetizers seems to be the only one that he can eat & not scratch up a storm.

I have tried many of the other low allergen & non allergen(Z-D) foods from my vet, food that had the protiens broken down, but my cat scratched evern more & his chin got all bumpy & so did his lips/mouth. I have tried several different purina type foods & other name brands but the appetizer fancy feast product seems to cause the least prob with his food allergies. Why is that, and is there a better or more nutritional product? My Cat is 19 yrs old.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I also have another kitty that has a sensitive stomach. I find the Fancy Feast Appetizers work well on her, too. The upset stomachs are far and few between. Plus, I have noticed the liter boxes don't smell as bad as they used to when they were on other brands.

Try Royal Canin. They have products for older cats. My cats are 4 and 6. I give them Intense Beauty wet food and dry Royal Canin Special 33 (there is also a Skin formula) and Royal Canin 35. My Siamese has inflammatory bowel disease but he's fine with all the Royal Canin products. He can also eat the Fancy Feast Appetizers but not other Fancy Feast products (he gets diarrahea and also throws up from the others).

Each appetizer will contain the main type of fish or chicken listed on the package. In the case of the Tilapia the fish is the first ingredient followed by water, xanthan gum, guar gum and sodium nitrate to preserve color. Protein content is 12%, crude fat 1.0%, crude fiber max. 0.5%. The package has no grains, by-products, or ground meals listed as an additive. The appetizers contain only the meat, water, and the items shown above to preserve flavor and color.

No you don't. Fancy Feast is known to be one of the poorer options in cat food, healthwise. If you really care about the health of your cat, stick to the natural and holistic food, with meat as a first ingredient and little to no grain.

However, according to Fancy Feast's website hear is the list of the ingredients: Water, chicken, guar gum, xanthan gum, sodium nitrite (to maintain color).

Notice that water, not meat, is the first and that the rest are additives that wouldn't be found in natural food. This is, however, much healthier than some of the other food available, including most of Fancy Feast's regular food, which contain wheat, corn and MANY additives. Also notice that missing from these ingredients are essential fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals that are in natural and holistic food.
