Fancy Feast - for the distinguished cat.

Pros:Quality canned cat food, easy to open.

Cons:Price, price, price.

The Bottom Line: Fancy Feast is good quality, convenient cat food that my two cats enjoy.


Clink-Clink
(the sound of me with a fork, tapping a pedestaled crystal bowl with the meat from a can of Fancy Feast inside, nicely cut into bite-sized cubes.)

I can see my cats Jonny & Fifi now…they hear me pull the flip top lid to the Fancy Feast can, and they come running! I don’t need to call them, just a simple pull on that little ring will let them know it’s dinner time.

I’ve been feeding Fancy Feast to my two (very pampered and spoiled) Scottish Fold cats for several years now. Do they love it? Do they ever.

~VARIETY~
Is getting more expanded every year. Fancy Feast has every flavor you can imagine, and they still come up with new flavors! The food comes in different meats, like: turkey, chicken, seafood, beef. And then they mix the flavors (seafood/beef, ect). You can buy the different varieties with gravy, without gravy, sliced, grilled, minced, roasted, and the newest way of preparing, marinated. I have to say that both my cats EAT UP the marinated varieties. If you’d like to try a free can of the Fancy Feast marinated variety, go to Fancyfeast.com to register for a coupon.

Also, Fifi, my female cat loves the "chunky chicken" variety, while Jonny, my male cat, likes the "minced turkey". Unfortunately, I don’t like to buy my cats the "salmon" flavor, because it all around makes them stink…their breath stinks and their kitty poop really stinks.

~CONVENIENCE~
These little cans are easy to transport, open, and use. No more can openers, no more stored cat food in the ‘fridge. I like not having to microwave my cats’ food in order for them to eat. I guess maybe my cats are not the only spoiled ones!

~PRICE~
Expensive…yes. This little 3 ounce can of cat food can cost from .38 cents to .75 cents… per can. The grocery store seems to be the most expensive place to purchase these cans (.75 cents), even when they have them on sale (.50 cents). I have found that K-mart has the most reasonable price (.38 cents), even without a sale. But, I have been informed by a K-mart employee that they will be raising the price to .42 cents a can. Even still, it’s cheaper than my local Albertson’s or Von’s. Costco has Fancy Feast boxed in bulk (36 cans at about .39 cents per can), but you only get three different varieties. For my two cats, I spend about $1.52 per day for them to eat Fancy Feast, which is about $555 a year. If I were to always buy full price at the grocery store (.75 a can), it could cost me about $1,100 a year! So, I'm always on the lookout for coupons, discounts, and overall lower prices. Unfortunately, my cats don't care about the cost. Jonny would eat dry food all the time with FF as a once in a while treat, but Fifi would starve if I didn't give her her Fancy Feast.

~QUALITY~
There is so much meat in these little cans, it helps me to understand why Fancy Feast prices are higher than other canned cat food. In the "sliced turkey feast with gravy" and the "roasted chicken feast," the first few ingredients are: poultry broth, turkey, liver, and meat-by-products. I know that there are a lot of people concerned about the ash content, and these Fancy Feast canned cat foods do have a maximum of 2.7% ash.

~FEEDING~
The can states that you should feed one can per every 3 pounds of body weight. So, if you have a 6 pound cat, you can give a can in the morning, and a can in the evening. Jonny is 8 pounds, so he gets his two cans, plus some dry cat food (Iams) that is out during the day so he can munch. Fifi is 6 pounds, and she never seems to need/want dry food, she only eats her two cans of Fancy Feast. Jonny downs his food within 2 minutes, and then tries to go over to Fifi’s bowl to eat hers. I have stand in between them so he won’t eat Fifi’s food. She does take about 15 minutes to daintly eat her food, always the lady and leaves a few morsals for Jonny to lick up. Actually, I think she takes so long to eat because she wants to drag it out as long as she can, in order to rub it in Jonny's face because he gobbled his food up so quickly. I can almost hear her meowing, "Naa na naa na naaaaa na.."

If you have a large/heavy cat, then you may want to consider supplimenting your FF with dry food. I can't imagine giving a 12 pound cat four cans of food!

I gave Fancy Feast 4 stars (basically because of the price), yet I would (and have) recommend Fancy Feast to other cat owners, even my own mother.
