Fancy Feast Fish and Shrimp Feast Flaked used to be a favorite of my cats (and was wonderful to hide medication in) but the last time I purchased it, it was brown and old looking, there were whole pieces of fish skin in the food, and too many bones to pick out, so I had to dispose of it. Some of the pieces of fish were sharp and hard as plastic! I also purchased a 12 count case of FF Gourmet Naturals Pate in Beef Flavor, as I thought it was a healthier choice for my cats, but when I got to the bottom of the can, I saw pieces of the can had come off and were floating in the food. The bottom of the can looked like it had been scratched off or it was a used can, rather than a brand new product.

Unfortunately, my cats had already eaten some of the food before I discovered this. I am extremely worried about their health now and I hope they do not have any health issues from this. I thought it was just the one can that was like this, or my spoon may have scraped the can, so I opened more cans and I dumped the contents out without using a spoon, and all of the cans were in the same condition. I wasted a lot of money on this food, which is very upsetting as I have 14 cats in my care whom I am the sole guardian for after losing my mom to cancer, and I am not working due to caring for my grandmother who has congestive heart failure, so money cannot afford to be wasted.

I have had issues with Purina in the past - their dry Purine One dry food - the Tender Selects Chicken Flavor - made my cats vomit constantly and Purina reps were evasive when I asked them if one of their products, the Purina Cat Chow Sensitive Stomach dry food, was made in China) but my cats needed to eat more wet food per my vet's recommendation for urinary issues so I thought I would give Purina one last chance. I will not be buying any of their products again. For the health of their consumers changes need to be made to this food because it is definitely NOT safe and for the price of the food these cans should be in way better shape than this. Thoroughly disgusted and disappointed.

First of all I want to say FF is all my 6 yr old kitty little girl has ever liked. Something has definitely changed since COVID hit the US. I started noticing there were color changes of the meat (a grayish brown color), as well as the wet food being shriveled up away from the edges of the can and dry looking. My cat loves 3 different paté flavors but won't touch any of them anymore. I have complained to Chewy and they replaced the case I bought with another one but my cat or my mother's 3 cats wouldn't eat it. I have returned unopened cans to Krogers grocery store as well.

I can always tell, as soon as I open a can, if my kitty will eat it or not. I usually open anywhere between 1 to 3 different flavors a day, to try and get my kitty to eat 1 of them, but she'll take one lick and back away from her dish. My kitty constantly begs me for food all day long and it becomes so annoying day after day. Oh yeah, I've bought other brands but she won't eat them, at all. She loves ff but they have had to changed their ingredients, since the pandemic. I feed the strays what my cat won't eat but I have seen them walk away from some of the ff and that's bad when a hungry stray won't eat it, either!

I get that some ingredients are hard to come by but don't just "wing it" for sales! I buy, at the very least 30 cans a month and try to keep stocked up because you never know what could happen! I'm just saying You may not be able to buy any for a while, the way our country is being ran these days. I really wish I had all the money that I have thrown away on these "hit or miss" cans of ff!

And another thing, I've talked to other customers in the stores that I've bought the ff at and they agree that something has changed as well, I even talked to store clerks at 2 different PetSmarts and they told me they've received complaints about ff, as well. Fancy Feast, please stop substituting some of the ingredients and bring back the original ingredients. But no matter what, I'm on a mission to find a different wet cat food company, I'd like to see my kitty eat good, again! Sincerely Christene from Columbus, Ohio

    My kitty has been eating F.F. for 8 years..I tried the "petites" when they first came out..Liked idea small size..But the stuff smelled "off" and it didn't look right..With each "flavour" she would taste then walk away..I threw it out, rather than give another kitty such poor quality..So back to the cans..Usually Florentine and Tuscany..It wasn't long before the poor quality "petites" were available in cans..This is where they start to confuse the consumers..They say "New packaging but the SAME GREAT TASTE.." IT'S A LIE...Slowly.. They disguise the "switcharoo" with NEW wrapping..Thinking we won't notice..But they can't fool my cat...At first both kinds were available. That's was the transitioning period..Now..the big stores Amazon..Walmart. etc. only carry the GARBAGE..

    My kitty is getting old..And after years of happily eating the same food..Now I have to find a suitable replacement, and there are lots of options BUT SHE has to like them...Frustrating and expensive? Yes..but what IS worse, is having to watch as with each new food wreaks havoc with her digestive system..Diarrhea. Regurgitating..Watching her trepidation as she approaches her food bowl..And WW2. 1 It's hard to find a brand that offers a simple fare..Primarily meat..I've never seen a cat purposely munching on blueberries or sweet potato..But we've all seen them chomping on greens..I'm really angry with Purina..All this upheaval...Just to make MORE MONEY..Take a good product. Well liked and time tested..Then turn it into garbage and re-wrap it with a bow!..It will back-fire..We aren't stupid and neither are our cats...I'll never buy this "new" product..And I'm not the only one!

    My cats have eaten Fancy Feast for 16 years. They've changed their packaging and the food is definitely not the same, having a hard time getting any of them to eat any of it. They used to love it, even the cats I feed outside won't eat it. Wish I could show you a picture comparing the White Meat Chicken with Garden greens in a savory broth which used to be their favorite. The meat is definitely not white meat, it's a whole different color, dark, and not the same texture at all. All the medleys have changed. Very disappointed and struggling to find something different.

    My sweet cat who was in an impeccable shape a few days ago will likely die tonight. The vet has left us no hope at all as to her chance of survival. Two days ago, she started to vomit and have violent diarrhea. We brought her in a quasi coma state to the vet. 4000$ and a series of analysis, X-ray, ultrasound and blood analysis later, she is dying and the vet is puzzled as to the cause of this sudden fall in her health. In my view, knowing the cat who lives exclusively in an apartment with no access to outdoors, I do not see any explanation other than the food she ate, which was a Fancy Feast Pate. I am almost decided to fork an additional 1500$ to have an autopsy done in a veterinarian university, I am so enraged at that development. I bought the can in Toronto in May. If you have seen similar issues with that product lately, please let me know.

    My cat thinks Fancy Feast Broths are a gift from the gods. I've never seen anything like the way he slurps up this pleasant perfection. Broths are great for finicky felines because they're small, not too filling, and fabulous for an addition to kibble or simply on their own. I highly recommend Fancy Feast Broths for overly finicky felines.

    I was able to feed ff pate to my diabetic cat and was able to get him off of insulin because of it as it's below 10g of carbs per serving and my cat liked it. I'm now giving it to my Bengal as he had gotten the runs on the dry food.

    My picky 5 yo female cat will only eat Fancy Feast Purely Wet Cat Food, 2 oz trays. We have tried many different brands and types of wet food to no avail. What is also good about this product, is its liquid content, which the vet said she needs to help with prevention of bladder crystals.

    The fur baby gives it two paws up. He will sit at his bowl and beg for it. The only issue I have is that it's been hard to find his yummy treat of wet food as of late. When I do find it, the markup's been drastic.
