I’m not sure what has happened to this cat food recently, but it made my cat extremely sick. He’s been eating it for 12 years but every time he would eat it the last few months he’d puke and have diarrhea (sometimes not even in his box). We thought he was just being picky when he didn’t want to eat it so didn’t think anything of it at first but he would just stop eating altogether. Around the same time he also started growing a lump on his side. We tried different food and he ate it no problem but still got sick if we gave him Friskies. He only ate the shreds but looks like this was a problem with pate as well. One day we decided to not give him friskies at all and the constant puking and diarrhea stopped. We will never give him this again. He hasn’t had an issue with Fancy Feast and even though it’s more money it’s worth him not getting sick anymore. Do not buy if you want your cat healthy.
My cats have been eating Friskies for years. They loved the Mariners Catch and Ocean Whitefish & Tuna Pate when the can was not full and gravy. Now that the cans are full and smell bad. They won't eat it. I don't know what you did but you are hurting your company. Also, the gold top cans smell like diesel fuel. (Mariners Catch) the stray cat won't eat it. And they are hungry. The bad part is I have 240 cans of food. That is a lot of money. And it is hard to find cat food. Why? I will try to look other brands. Thank god for American greed...

Our cat will only eat Friskies chicken and tuna pate wet food. Unfortunately, all Friskies canned cat food has been out of stock recently at all the stores, but we were fortunate enough to be able to find some online. Also, the price is SO good for us! We realized just how great the price was when we had to look at some other brands. We did try giving our cat another brand of more expensive food, more than twice the price, and she would have none of it. Friskies is the best!
I have purchased Friskies Pate Wet Cat Food, Ocean Whitefish & Tuna Dinner, 5.5 oz. cans for years and my cats happily ate it. For the last 5 months, the cats have snubbed most of the Friskies flavors; they especially have an aversion toward the aforementioned flavor. I have thrown out a few dozen cans after they sniff it and turn away. They used to gobble it up and now it sits all day and dries out. I have wasted a lot of money. Has the formula/recipe changed? Has anyone else experienced this same problem? Friskies, please help.
My cats love Friskies dry food, treats and wet food. It is easy to find and not expensive. I get it delivered by Chewy every month. They have a wide selection of food to choose from so my cats never get tired of the same old thing everyday.
I have been buying the pate. The amount of BONE and BUGS is disgusting! I almost throw up every time I see it. I have a hard enough time trying to find a brand my cats will eat without having to pay for garbage! I know Companies are permitted so much per millions or some such thing. I'm ready to find another brand as one of my cats had blood in their stool. Could be a number of things but, why do I have to worry about a bone chip getting lodged where it shouldn't to!
You can check my review on Fancy Feast, narrow it down to one star reviews to get the true stories of people that have horror stories like mine. Purina products contain known carcinogens, they also use what's called 4D meats and I believe they added a fifth now. 4D meats are dead, decaying, diseased, and dying.. I believe they added discarded now.. you know how maggots invade dead animals, other species of critters do as well and that goes into the food when they toss these decaying, dying, diseased, dead or discarded from like the vet's office that may have been put to sleep with medications or that have died from disease..
I had your typical problems of sick cats a couple years ago, not just one cat but all of them were puking violently right after they ate and had diarrhea. I thought it was just a bug that they had until I started researching the food. I found so many horror stories of people with the same problems I had and they were relating it to a bad batch like 1157 1159 and that is not the case. It's the poor quality of the food that this big Corporation, Purina is making... they only care about the money they make off of consumers like me and you while not giving a crap about what is going in the food that we feed our beloved furbabies! I already lost two cats to cancer and I had one diagnosed with tumors in his throat and now my little girl, who is only 10 years old, has tumors in her throat and honestly I can't afford to do the treatments that she really needs and it breaks my heart! At this point it's about quality of life and when to euthanize.
So all of you out there that don't have a problem yet, you might not see it now but you will eventually see the problems with your animal! This company manipulates people with their fancy labels and pictures and it's false advertisement! I'm so sick to my stomach to see my animals suffer because I trusted a company that was making the food I feed her that poisoned her and my others! Please go to ** look up Purina and you will see Purina products contain known carcinogen... or you can Google Purina products contain known carcinogen and you will see the class action lawsuit.
Most attorneys are afraid to go after big corporations, if you look at your food aisle at your pet store or your local grocery store, you will see that Purina floods the market! I won't even buy their cat litter! They have bought out other products as well like Kit n Kaboodle. I'm disgusted with this company and when I first realized this problem after doing my own research.. I wanted to print flyers and post them in every aisle at every store I could reach but I didn't do that, instead I took to the internet and told my stories to try to warn others.
Please, everyone that is having a problem... which I'm sure is why your on this site searching up your animals food, please stop buying any of their products! They are toxic and they don't care about our animals. All they care about is putting our money in their pocket! When your cat turns their nose to the food you open, there's a problem! It's not just that they are being picky or finicky, they are trying to tell you... something's wrong here! I am so sick to my stomach that I trusted Purina for years and years and my animals have suffered because of that. Please share your stories and warn everybody that you can! Thank you for reading.
Hi, my cat is diabetic and there a few affordable options for wet food. I’ve tried Fancy Feast. Cat loves. Then decided to try the Friskies pack sold at Costco. Cheaper and larger cans. Cats been puking and not really eating much every day. So I’ve stopped. Back to Fancy Feast and no puking. Don’t think this is very good food for cats. I wouldn’t buy it again.
My cat has eaten Friskies pate canned food without problems over the past 2 years. Recently she has been vomiting every time she eats it. I wasn't sure it was the food until my daughter's dog came over and ate what was in the cat's bowl and he started vomiting. I bought Sheba brand and no vomiting! There has to be some kind of contamination or composition change with the recent lots.
Around the end of last year I fed Tasty Treasures to some foster kittens and they got horrible diarrhea. Very run down and sick. Luckily that litter all recovered and lived. I contacted Purina about the incident and they basically blew it off. I since had never fed tasty treasures again. I foster for a rescue and they had got a box of tasty treasures in. They gave it to me for my last batch of foster kittens. The kitten started getting diarrhea and a couple of them started getting very lethargic. I was giving them sub Q fluids, **, and FortiFlora to help with the diarrhea.
The fecal from from the veterinarian came back negative. Unfortunately one kitten got so rundown that I lost her. Didn’t dawn on me right away that it may be the tasty treasures again. One of the other kittens stopped eating and had watery diarrhea. Luckily we were able to save that kitten. The rest all recovered. They didn’t get as sick. Just the diarrhea but they kept eating. I once again contacted Purina and they are blowing it off. Will not answer me if Friskies is harmful to feed to kittens. I asked them 10 times and would never get a yes or no out of them. Please do not feed this to kittens. I believe there is something in it that is harmful to young ones. And now I’m seeing several all the reviews of people having the same issues with diarrhea and this product.
