Felix Fish Selection Pouches in Jelly
Advantages: real chunks of meat
Disadvantages: all look and smell the same
My cat is called Prince. He is handsome little chap and deserves to be spoiled. He loves fish more than anything so more often than not I will choose a fish selection pack for him to enjoy. Occasionally I do mix it up and he gets to experience flavours such as duck and beef but he seems to prefer the fish ones the best. I serve Prince a diet of dry biscuits and wet food. I prefer this combination because dry food alone makes him constipated and wet food alone makes him a bit too 'loose.' The felix fish selection is perfect for Prince as one pouch a day with biscuits is enough for him. I open the pouch on a morning and immediately he will come crying, using my fingers on the foil pouch I break the food and jelly up and put half a pouch in a bowl, I then fold the rest of the pouch over and save it for tea time. During the day he then grazes on biscuits and water.
Price and availability
All good supermarkets sell the Fish selection where you get twelve pouches for around £3.20.
The foil pouches have an easy to tear off top so you can easily transfer the food to the bowl. The foil pouches are tough and you can mould and manipulate the food before putting it in the bowl. I find that I like to break it up this way before putting it in his bowl otherwise it comes out in one jelly block. Although Prince can still manage to eat it, I think he prefers it when it is broken up into chunks.
The selection comprises of:
* Tuna & Cod
* Salmon & Trout
* Shrimp & Plaice
* Pollock & Sardine
All the fish dishes come in a soft jelly and every time Prince has one, he always licks the jelly off before eating the fish. To be honest, I cannot tell much difference between the different pouches although the Salmon one does seem to smell the fishiest. Prince is a typical man though and will eat just about anything, he has never turned his nose up at food. He seems to really enjoy the Tuna one though as this was eaten the quickest but he has eaten all the flavours and seems to enjoy them all. I always come back to a clean bowl afterwards and find him licking his paws and content. I like the felix selection as the fish smells like fish and are not too offensive. Some cat food smells absolutely dreadful. The food looks chunky and wholesome and there is plenty of Jelly but there is much more meat. Afterall, you are paying for meat so I would not be happy if the sachet was stuffed with too much Jelly and not enough meat.
I do not buy this range all the time and mix it up. He has also tried the Felix Chicken in Jelly which he enjoyed but he definitely prefers the fish one. He is currently working his way through a different brand of cat food and trying out their fish selection. Their flavours are less exotic than the felix selection but he is enjoying them just as much and they look just as appetising out of the packet. I guess the variety in the felix selection is the main selling point, they certainly have created a gourmet range in cat foods. Tuna and salmon are traditional flavours but the likes of plaice and Pollock sound very Gordon Ramsey and I like the thought of a them creating these special dishes. It is good to give your cat some variety, I certainly would not like to just eat chicken day in day out so I am all for the different varieties.
Prince and I were very happy with the felix selection and we give it a big paws up.
Summary: tea time!
