“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Cat Food „
My lovely companion, Mytle (a half rag doll kitten of four months old!) is incredibly fussy. I've had no end of problems feeding her as she's so flipping fussy and I found she wasn't gaining weight and a lot of her kitten food was being put in the bin rather than her tummy no matter the brand or the flavour. In the end I took her to the vets and I've been told she's fine and to try mixing up her diet a bit with adultcat food sometimes as it is better than nothing and like human babies maybe she's decided to grow up faster and wean herself off it!
So now Myrtle is on fine form. Sometimes nibbling kitten food but more often than not now adult cat food. I would have of course preferred her to still be eating kitten food considering its less rich on a kittens tummy usually and is enriched with extra vitamins and minerals besides being usually smaller chunks of food but at the end of the day I can't flag that dead horse forever and if she won't eat it then she wont eat it! So I comply!
However since me changing her diet she is more full of energy and eating loads more! She's even got a bit of a tummy appearing which is something I never thought I would see with her so I'm pleased!
These little pouches of food I bought to try basically. 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 to try out anyway along with some Whiskers ones and little Gourmet tins and so on.
This comes in a black on the outside plastic pouch with 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.
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 kitten meat 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 whos 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!
