Advantages: Wholesome food
According to the adverts eight out of ten cats prefer Whiskas but I seem to have the 20% that doesn’t. I’ll not say that that languid lump of feline fur of mine is a fussy eater because he will just about eat Whiskas but only under protest as he much prefers Felix. He would probably die for a lick of the jelly.
The 400g tins at 46p come in a variety of flavours most of which include the jelly, although there are a couple of flavours that have gravy and Spike hates those. He would rather starve than eat the cat food with gravy. He’s not over keen on the fishy varieties either of which there are two.
The ring pull does make it easy to open the can to reveal what looks like 1 cm cubes of compressed and coloured sawdust covered in a mid brown jelly substance.
Now Spike is no fool when it comes to me opening a tin. He can hear a tin being opened above the din of the telly or radio and even through a closed kitchen door and would be at my feet within seconds of me grabbing hold of the ring pull if it wasn’t for the closed kitchen door. Although Spike is a big cat, having had his tackle interfered with by the vet, one tin a day seems to do him fine although given the chance he would eat more. But mindful of his feline girth that’s all he gets. Even so he has a bit of a belly on him anyway because his idea of exercise is stretching out to his full 36 inches from tip of the tail to his outstretched paws and running to his food dish. He strolls back licking his face. I’m not sure what he weighs but it has to be over 5 kg and it’s all muscle, apart from the bit around the belly. When he leans on you, you know that you have been leaned on and it is all down to being lazy and Felix cat food.
Or should I say Felix moisture, because according to the ingredients listed on the tin 82.5% of the contents is moisture with only 8.5% protein, 5.5% oil, 2.5% ash and 0.5% fibre. Presumably the remaining 0.5% is a
Even so Spike seems to thrive on his regular diet of Felix as his litter tray will testify to.
It says on the can top, “Tasted and approved.” I wonder who tasted it to give their approval?
