I have two cats, they have dry food down at all times and then every now and then they get wet food as a bit of a treat, so I occasionally stock up on a few of these pouches so that they have some available.
I really like how they are only 26 p for 1 pouch, I find that it is quite an inexpensive way to treat our little cats and they really do enjoy it!
I like that they come in a pouch, they pouches are easily torn open and the contents can then be easily squeezed out into their cat bowls. This is great as there is no mess or clean up involved. My children also really like to be involved in feeding and treating the pets so it is really good for them as it is so easy for them to be able help!
There is a whole range available from Tesco with all different flavours, I tend to stick to the chicken flavour when I can. My cats enjoy all the flavours however I do not like how any of the fishy flavours have quite a strong smell and I can't really deal with that in my house! The chicken one seems to have a milder smell!
There is 100 grams in each pouch. I find that one pouch can easily be halved between my two greedy moggies meaning that each pouch is extremely good value!
I definitely recommend these wet food pouches for the kitties in your life! Tasty for your cat and easy on the purse strings for you!
My lovely companion, Myrtle is an incredibly fussy little cat. I've had no end of problems feeding her and just when I think that I've found a food she does like and appreciate she has a change of heart!
When I spotted these at 29p a pouch I was concerned they'd be a bit cheap for Myrtles taste buds but then I didn't want to waste money on maybe a more decent brand that she wouldn't like...it was a bit of a catch 22 situation but I bought a couple for her to try out anyway along with some Whiskers ones and little Gourmet tins and so on as I do love to be able to offer her a good variety of things to eat.
This comes in a black on the outside plastic pouch which is silver foiled lined on the inside of it and on the front of the pouch there is a picture of a cat on there and we are told that it is Tesco Cuts In Gravy With Chicken and that it is vitamin & mineral enriched then on the back of the pouch other information listed includes the ingredients and additives within it, feeding advice and storage details are also given along with the size of this pouch which is 100g and contact details for Tesco are given. It's an easy to tear open pouch this one with a nick to tear from at the top of it and your left to simply squeeze the food out of it.
The Food Itself:
Well this is smallish pinkish/brownish soft meat and plenty of it within a not too runny light brown gravy which there is also plenty of. It smells meaty to me though not particularly of chicken......just meaty and I don't think you get all that much of it really however one serving of just this in a dish per meal is actually a bit much for Myrtle.
I don't need to mash this up for Myrtle or really spread it out in the dish as the gravy separates the chunks and what not anyway and I have to say Myrtle really does like this food! The feeding guide on the back of the pouch tells you how many of these pouches to give a day which is up to 4 depending on the age of your cat however I don't feed her these all day long, just one occasionally along with other wet fed and kibbles and the likes but this is one good portion of food for her and like I say she never consumes all of it at once which shows me there's plenty of it.
The only thing that concerns me is the meat content of this. There is only 4% chicken content in it then lots of sugars and meat derivatives. I would personally prefer a higher meat content however like I say Myrtle seems to really enjoy this one and will at least eat it as one of her 4 small meals a day and I guess that's the main thing!
Only available in Tesco stores.
