When it comes to buying cat food I will quite often buy brands of food I have heard of but not tried before if I see them cheap, otherwise I will stick to my lovely cats favourite food which I know she adores which is Sheba and not waste my pennies.
However I came across this cat food a while ago now. I lived in a block of flats, my very good friend lived two doors down and we used to be in and out of eachothers flats and one day I was cleaning my windows and my cat nipped in to see her and her cats, Maizie and gobbled up the standing dinner that was put out! I was stunned as up until that point I couldn't get my cat Myrtle to even contemplate eating a dried food and was very happy at this new information in and I ran out straight away to grab a bag of this as I was informed that my mate only paid a pound for a large, 900g of the stuff in our local (at the time!) Poundland store. Rest assured though that even since I have moved 150 miles from that Poundland I can still get it at my local Poundland stores too and I have seen it in B & M as well and apparently this can be bought in 4KG bags though I haven't personally ever seen that.
This comes in a very nice dark and light blue and white plastic bag and on the front of it there is a photograph shown of a lovely tabby cat and a dish of the food and we are clearly told that it is indeed Webbox Cat Stars Complete Cat Food and that the bag weighs 900g and that it is made with real chicken, promotes dental health and contains no artificial flavours within it at all. Then on the back of the bag other information listed includes being told about about the product, the ingredients and composition of the food is given, a feeding guide is also given and contact details for the manufacturer are clearly stated as well. Nice enough packaging this is though the bag is not resealable however this is easily remedied by using a clip of some kind (I have freezer clips that work well) or you can bung them in a dispenser like a cereal one to keep them fresh and stop them spilling out everywhere.
This food is dried and slightly powdery to my touch. The feeding guideline is there however my girl won't eat many of these and certainly not for every meal but to be fair she does prefer wet, gravy dinners but I can feed her usually a dried food once a day in a smallish portion and sometimes if she hasn't eaten much I will put a few out for overnight in case she does get peckish as I never like her to have no food about the place.
These are small, dainty and star shaped and a bit puffed up looking in different shade of browns and red. They smell to me of beef and rather yeasty , they are not greasy to my touch and I like the sensible size they are meaning my cat can investigate them and pick them up and so on without any real effort at all.
They sound crunchy enough and Myrtle goes through stages of really liking these, to not bothering with them at all which is why I tend to give a small offering now and again. However I do like the fact that these are vitamin and mineral enriched and sound crunchy enough to be rather teeth cleaning and I can keep them sealed for ages without them going soggy.
She likes them and that's the main thing but I am never going to have a real fan of dried food on my hands however these are good for us as a bit of something different in and also a back up in case I run out of her favoured foods!
