Fancy Feast

Fancy Feast

I remember the old commercials for Fancy Feast wet cat food, where a person would clink a deluxe crystal glass with a fork, and this gorgeous fluffy white cat would come and eat Fancy Feast out of the glass (or cup, whatever). That certainly was an effective campaign to make people think the product is high-class, that’s for sure! So when I got the 2 cats I have now, I was surprised that they actually made dry food!! Well it had to be good stuff, right?? Let’s see….

This is the only food I’ve seen that has brewers rice as the top ingredient. For those who haven’t read other reviews, brewers rice is the leftover rice after the brewing process at alcohol distilleries. It’s bought cheaply by pet food makers and is worthless nutritionally. Then we have “poultry” by-product, which tells us they don’t want to divulge just what bird they got the yummy by-products from. Corn gluten meal is third, which again is nothing more than the most worthless part of the already worthless corn. Pure beef fat is next, which anybody can guess probably isn’t the preferred type of fat for a cat (or human for that matter) to eat. The next 2 ingredients are pure filler (ground corn and soybean meal). So the question is…what exactly IS deluxe about this food?

Well, the question is answerable with one word: nothing. If you have that aforementioned glass, I’ll definitely take it. Don’t buy this food though, no matter how great the cat on the package looks.

What’s good about this food….

Nothing I can see.
