Funny that!

Being voted cold yet its the cheapest price anywhere

Cold from me sorry, because it's probably the worst cat food on the market.

Have a look at that link for a list of foods, cost of food, and a general analysis.

so your using your opinion of the product to judge the price level

i am judging the price

I'm using the fact that there's no actual cat food in a cat food to judge. It's crap, 4% meat derivatives and they have the cheek to charge you for it, no matter the price. If you're paying £3.50, then you're paying £3.50 too much.

So if you know a product to be absolute crap, and yet as expensive as much much better products, you're going to vote it hot? I think not. I'm also trying to help people not pay out money to feed their cats garbage.

And I wasn't aware you were given a prize for getting hot votes. There must be since you're so concerned about it.

Hundreds and thousands of people believe the hype that whiskas marketing dept creates.
Look at the link, ingredients speak for themselves. My apologies for voting a crap product cold, I see you must work for whiskas since you seem to be personally offended by my opinion of the product.

I honestly couldn't give two flying hoops what you feed your cat, if you choose to feed your cat crap, that's up to you. But there are people who would like to know what they're feeding there cats. Who are actually more interested in the health and nutrition of their pet, than hot votes on a web site.

Millions of people feed maccies to their kids and eat chocolate daily, doesn't make it healthy or value for money now does it.

i have 3 cats, which are 18 years old now

maybe i should take the bags back for a refund then

Wotan talks a bunch of crap, Whiskas is fine for cats, they eats rats and sparrows etc in the wild dude, so as long as there is a little more science in their Whiskas diet than stinky dead rat i will continue with the Whiskas, it is a hot deal and that is what this forum is about not campaign issues by losers.

It's the same with dog food. For Whiskas, see Pedigree Chum. Probably one of the most well known dog food brands, not necessarily anywhere near the cheapest, but it's low quality.

Your pets may like these foods, in many cases you may never have any problems with it whatsoever, but you are feeding them food that is low quality. The facts are there if you check out the ingredients. If you are interested enough to research it, you can find far better quality foods at comparable prices.


Does this really taste of dried adult cats?

(& yes it is pap to feed your pusscat on)

Any alternatives that are recommended then?

That's very true, the difference is, that's their natural diet, it has actual meat content, from which they get nutrients, protein etc. Whiakas has 4% meat derivatives, IE beaks, feathers etc, and while they will eat that in the wild too, they will also eat the good bits that they get nutrition from.

I assume all vets and animal nutritionists talk crap too.

As I said, feed your cat what you want., I couldn't give a crap. But don't kid yourself that you are giving them a good diet. As I said, ingredients spe for themselves. If you think an obligate carnivore having 4% meat derivatives as their only meat source is acceptable - good for you.

so your not a true animal or cat lover, as you WOULD CARE if someone is feeding their cat crap

LOL, well obviously you'd pick applaws, the most expensive food. But comparing that to whiskas is like comparing a macdonalds to a 3 star meal.

There's plenty of alternatives that are not as expensive.

I love my animals, I don't feed them crap. I mentioned that this is crap, in hopes of letting someone know that whiskas is pants. And I linked to a page that shows plenty of alternatives. If you don't care what your cats are eating, why should I?

As I said, don't take my word, ingredients speak for themselves. Look at them, and feed what you like. I'm bored or trying to talk to someone who obviously isn't interested in anything more than hot votes.

ok then, alternatives such as what from where

krisgiraffe

ok then, alternatives such as what from where



Look at the link I posted.

Massive list of dry foods, prices, ingredients and cost to feed per day.

I always check the meat content of the dry cat food I buy after someone pointed out how low it was in most popular brands. I normally buy Aldi dry food now. Not the one in the box, the one in the foil bag I think it has something like 20% meat and is £1.99 for 750g. Saying that though my cats do like the Whiskas so I sometimes buy it and mix it in with the better quality food.

I would keep quiet unless you like looking stupid. cats are obligate carnivores which means they get their nutrients from MEAT ONLY

whiskas is 96% rice, maize and ash

even you might be able to do the math on this lol

rats & sparrows contain more than 4% meat

great list thanks although tricky to work out what is best value for money without going through every product

any recommendations for wet / dry?

I currently use royal canin dry / almo nature wet although that list has put me off these big time

When I buy in bulk using discount codes / tcb (zooplus), it really doesnt cost that much more than this whiskas junk

I feed Acana grain free or applaws and bozita/top life or hilife pouches.ni spend less than £20 a month feeding two cats so I'm happy with that.

Here's the list for the wet food too

http://www.petforums.co.uk/cat-health-nutrition/112132-z-wet-food-cats.html

Royal canin isn't great, but it's far from the worst. I like the fish4cats but my youngest cat can't eat fish, but honestly, best thing to do is have a quick look at the lists, work out what's the best bang for buck your budget allows (let's face it, most people don't have huge amounts of cash, one of the reasons I really hate whiskas, felix etc is how much they rip you off, awful ingredients, yet they charge as though it were premium) and call the company for a sample bag, pointless spending out if the cat won't touch it lol. I also think pets at homes purely range is good value for cash, not amazing at 40% chicken, but feeding guide is about 50g per day for your average 5kg cat.

Vetuk have some good prices too.

I just brought some Pets at Home own brand light cat food. £7.52 for 2KG 24% meat. It is currently 33% off.
