“ Brand: Whiskas / Food Type: Cat Food „
I have used whiskas kitten with my cat Dulcie from the very beginning. In the past, with other kittens, I have tried various foods, but none of them are as good as Whiskas. In fact several of the other cheaper kitten foods available, seemed to upset very young cats stomachs. Kittens are babies and like babies their stomachs are delicate. Whiskas is gentle and contains the right amount of vitamins and minerals that your kitten needs, in order to grow into a healthy cat.
I feed my kitten one pouch of whiskas kitten in the morning and then whiskas kitten dry in the evening. She is truely thriving on it. She is the perfect weight and her coat absolutely gleams. She is a very happy, healthy kitten.
Whiskas kitten may be that little bit more expensive, but in the long run, those few extra pence (and it really is only a few pence,) really do seem to make the difference in a cat's health and vitality. Dulcie is so full of life. She is a lovely, healthy, contented cat and a large part of that is down to her diet.
I got my kitten (Tom) when she was 4 months old, now she is 7 months and has tried only 3 types of cat food. Whiskas kitten pouches, Whiskas kitten tins and Felix tins. She has dry food as well but that’s not what my op is about!! For those of you who know my history, I have not long finished being a student, so why buy only the best for my little kitty?? I heard from somewhere that a cheaper cat food is less nutritious, and so you have to feed more to the cat and clean up the litter tray more often. However, it works out cheaper in the long run to feed expensive cat food, such as Whiskas, as it is more nutritious, produces less waste and helps prevent future health problems. Tom loves the pouches, but when the shop had run out and I got her tins, she wouldn’t touch the stuff. Mind you, have you seen it?? At the least the pouches have little chunky pieces of meaty stuff (chicken, tuna, cod, turkey etc) coated in either jelly or gravy. Open up a tin and it is just a lump of brown stuff. No chunks, no jelly and no gravy. You can’t even cut it up into mouth sized pieces, it is just like goo. There are funny little pieces something in it, I dread to think hat they are. To be honest, it looks like something that comes out the other end! My cat prefers to catch her own food, usually spiders, wasps, worms, daddy long legs and dragonflies, as well as steal the fish’s bloodworm, why Whiskas hasn’t cottoned onto this I don’t know. Perhaps they should try putting these animals into tins, she might eat the food then! Nowadays, if I have to buy tinned kitten food I buy Felix. It is in jelly, and in bite sized pieces (although they are bigger pieces than Whiskas pouches). She gulps them down and doesn't leave a drop.
Another "specially formulated kitten food". This time, we have a pouch of what would be more or less the same as an ordinary Whiskas' pouch but in smaller chunks and unlike the adult varieties, I have only seen one flavour - chicken in jelly. As kittens can be extremely active, they could well become very bored quickly - and the same would go for it's diet. There are two types of "kitten" food from Whiskas, tinned and pouches but at the moment, this opinion is just about the pouch version. Nutritionally, the only "benefit" over this food is that it states on the pack that extra calcium has been added although how much I can't tell. At least it doesn't cost any more than a conventional pouch (which are too expensive in any case). I am just about to give the kittens their first ever "solid" meal. Could be interesting experience (when I first gave them some special kitten milk, they bathed in it instead of drinking it!!!) Whiskas is generally regarded as the best, why not try 'em with that! The makers do not recommend storing opened cat food in a fridge so why don't they at least put a resealable strip like they do on cat treats?
