“ Brand: Felix / Type: Cat Food „
* Prices may differ from that shown
I really struggle to get nice food for my Myrtle Rose, my 18 month old or so cat. She's been fussy with food and treats from day one of me having her and its very difficult to find a food that she likes and continues to like and as a result of this I am constantly buying different varieties of food in.
Most recently I bought a box containing 12 trays of Felix food, in trays and in 3 different flavours and this was one of them. After a rocky start with another flavour that she didn't seem overly fussed about I did start to wonder had I wasted my money!
Seeing as this came in a box the tray contains no information on it other than on the silver foil trays lid there was a picture shown of Felix the cat and us being told what it is on it however on the box I got told the ingredients and composition of the food, feeding advice was given (about 3 trays per day for a healthy adult cat), the weight was stated which is 100g per tray and contact details for Purina (the manufacturer of the product) were clearly given.
The Food Itself:
What you get is a square block of food. The meaty chunks in this are pinkish and brown in colour and there are plenty of them within this and they are encased by quite a watery looking golden brown coloured jelly which is plentiful. I simply splat this into her dish and mash it up a bit for her. It smells meaty enough however I hate the smell of wet cat food mind you and so it doesn't smell nice to my nasal passages!
Like all of the other Felix trays I bought Myrtle will eat some of this, mainly she'll lick the jelly off the meat and leave the meat behind! She will not eat very much mind you and certainly not a whole tray a day so I have been giving her half a tray a day of these foods, storing half in an airtight container in my fridge cos the tray isn't really all that resealable and stinks my fridge and food out and I'm doing this till we get rid of it all and I have been giving her other foods to supplement her diet whilst doing this. She just isn't all that keen and even sticking her favourite Lick-E-Lix Yogurt over it doesn't seem to tempt her at all to eat the lot up!
The thing I am not keen on with this food is that it only contains 4% meat and animal derivatives however it does contain vitamins and minerals so I would have been happy at just around £4.00 a box for 12 of them to buy it for her occasionally because I view it as junk food and I prefer foods with a better nutritional content to them and hadn't studied the ingredients or nutritional information on the box prior to buying it for her however I won't be buying this again for my girl, if she isn't keen then neither am I!
Not for Myrtle this one and its back to the drawing board for me when it comes to finding a food my furry baby will appreciate!
Available in all good supermarkets and pet stores, singly or in boxes and in varying flavours too. My box of 12 trays cost me £4.00 in Asda however since I purchased this it has gone on offer at 2 boxes of 12 trays costing just £7.00 which is excellent value if you can get your feline friend to eat it!
Tender chunks in tasty jelly. Now available in assorted flavours in the economy pack.
