Caution this product contains toxic ingredients. Your cat may crave them but if you're observant you will notice that they begin to puke much more often. I made the mistake of purchasing this thinking they would be a nice treat only to discover that they both became sick and one of them died soon after the exposure to this poison. If you truly love your pets avoid this toxic chemical!

Hi, I know it is super addictive. But the good news is I didn't find any bad effect of that addiction. My cat is 9 years old, was injured and her tail was immovable. At that time she rejected every other food we used to give her before. So, I was looking for Whiskas 7+. But anywhere I couldn't find it. So I brought her 1+ dry food. I gave it to her. She ate them so happily and the best news is she got his health back (since it was quarantine I wasn't able to take her to a vet). Now she has a beautiful silk coat and she have become so playful! Her weight also have increased. But she is playing too. She liked it so much..so I am giving what I can make her happy.. Her strength was restored by this.❤️❤️????

I just spent the last 3 hours trying to talk my cat off a ledge because he was upset and wanted to end 1 of his lives, simply because there are no mouse flavored cat foods. He had a valid point that all foods on the market for him taste the same and are clearly artificial. He wants mouse, bird, and the occasional bug flavors too. Only after telling him I'd write a review in his stead he agreed to come down and calm down. Please help my furry little guy!

I started giving my cat temptations. He is now addicted to them! He won’t eat his dry food anymore and cries and cries until I give them to him! After about a week of giving him the treats he started losing his fur up his hind legs and lower half of his belly! I will stop giving him these treats now but will be in hell listening to the constant meowing! PLEASE don’t give your cat these treats. It’s not worth all the headache!

Please please please save your cat's life and throw these treats as far away as possible! Over time your cat will become a chronic vomit-er as these treats destroy your cat's internal organs and digestive system. It will begin with your cat throwing up every other day, to everyday and multiple times a day throwing up the treats any food in his tummy, bile, and soon enough blood. I started changing my poor cat's diet asap even though he was already on a grain free healthy diet. Then we realized it was his treats. Vet said if we had waited any longer, the temptations treats would have caused irreversible damage or even death. This company makes me SICK and should be out of business.

I currently have four cats in my care that I have been raising since kittens. All four are and have been perfectly healthy UNTILL I have started giving them these Temptations treats, which resulted in one of my cats to have uncontrollable seizures. All four of the cats act like they are addicted to these treaty like **.

I just wanted to tell Carlos of Palm Springs that I also have been having the same problem with stores here in Kansas City MO taking Whiskas off their shelves for a while and then putting them back on and now Walmart raised their prices. But I found out that Chewy.com is selling it at a reasonable price. So that's who I've been ordering it from and I've never had a problem with that product. I have 3 cats my senior is 18yo and two 8yo and they've been eating it all their lives. No signs of sickness or irritability like I see some of these others talking about. Sorry you guys have gone through this I pray you all find something else that works for fur babies.

I always fed my cat another brand of food but switched to Whiskas cat food. Over the next few weeks he become very agitated, scratching himself like crazy, broke out in sores and lost all his hair on his legs and stomach and lost patches of hair on his neck neck and back. After going to the vet's they said he had a severe allergy and to try changing his food. After taking him off Whiskas dry cat food he stopped being agitated, stopped scratching and is now returning to his normal self. Seen a lot of comments here of other cats reacting in a similar way especially the scratching and agitation. Obviously there is something in this food that is affecting a lot of cats.

I have been feeding my cats the more expensive holistic cat food for years. Unfortunately due to a tough week and lack of money I could not afford their usual food and bought Whiskas meaty Selections Dry Cat food instead. Within 2 days of eating it they all became ill one worst than the others but all 4 vomiting and scratching uncontrollable. The worst of the bunch began sitting under a table growling and hissing at nothing all day and then thru the night chewed off the end of her own tail!!!!
When I woke up in the morning there was blood everywhere and that cat was covered in blood still growling and hissing at nothing! I realized it had to be the food as nothing else changed. I scraped together enough money to go buy their usual food and threw out the Whiskas. By the next day they were all showing improvement.... By 2 days later the worst one was finally acting normal again!! There is no way anyone is going to convince me it wasn't the food that did this!!! Absolutely horrible!!! Disgusting!!

No problems Here... I have fed my cats Whiskas Pouches for years since they first began eating solid foods. My previous cat lived to be 17 1/2 years and my current cat is 13 years now and still going strong! I am thankful that I have been blessed with very healthy pets. Since Whiskas has been taken off the shelves at most stores, I have tried many other brands and my cat either does not like them or tires of them after about a month and stops eating them. I finally found Whiskas on the shelves at K-Mart but the store is closing in about 2 months...and I will be out of luck again! I don't know what I will do when they're gone! By the way, my current cat also Loves Temptations treats.

This year was the third year I was fostering for a local rescue. For some reason, this year was also the year that kittens in my care were just not thriving, and the mamas weren't gaining either. I chalked it up to worming them with cattle dewormer, but discussion with a trusted vet clarified that no, this wormer is often used in kittens so it was unlikely to be the case. I tore my kitten room apart, trying to find some reason they would be getting so sick so quickly, some of them even dying. Nothing came up. I happened upon a comment about other kittens becoming sick in the same manner as my fosters, and after some research I found this thread. That's when it dawned on me that this was the first year I was giving kittens Whiskas, as I didn't have time to get to the shelter during the week to get the food they had.
My own cats have never eaten this swill, and as such have never been sick like the kittens were. My current fosters haven't touched it either, and have been dewormed, and are also not sick. The bunny who is a permanent resident in the kitten room is not sick, nor is the current guest in that room. Beware this company's products. They're killing animals and don't give even half a whoop.

I have been giving my cats Temptations treats for years because they loved all the varieties. Within the the past month, my 3 cats have all vomited from the treats. At first, I thought it was the store I bought them at maybe didn't store them properly, so I threw them out and purchased new treats at a different store. Well, same result. Not only am I disappointed, but I am now worried that these treats are endangering the health of my cats. It is hard for me to switch cat foods and treats because my 1 cat is very sensitive to diet changes and gets sick. The company needs to investigate this issue multiple pet owners are having since it is obvious there is a big problem!

I thought it would be a fun little treat for my cat who was 4 years old. Never changed his diet or anything. And then I gave him Temptations, within two weeks he was dead. They were like crack and he would go crazy for them. I thought it was cute. He started vomiting and then one night he just laid down and died. The only thing different in those two weeks to a healthy indoor cat were those treats. I cringe every time I see them in the store. I know what killed my Luca. And still I read the same thing over and over. Wake up Whiskas.

I have bought several boxes of Whiskas Cat Food for it all to be wasted. Every pouch I have put down is off and not fresh and my cat will not eat it. It has made him sick vomiting and diarrhea and lethargic. This has only happened over the last few months but the smell is disgusting and never fresh and off colour in the pouch. From my cat loving it he hates it now and has made him ill. Not a happy customer.

I think my cats, particularly my oldest one, has a terrible addiction to these things. She will sit on my desk and bat at me and paw at me until I give in and give her these things. Well, I forgot to buy them at the store yesterday so she didn't have any this morning. She started her usual bad behavior, scratching, pawing, etc., but after about 5 minutes realized the treats aren't coming and ate a lot of her dry food instead. That's proof enough for me. Cold turkey. Those suckers are expensive anyway. Even when you find them on sale they are still $8 a tub. It would be cheaper to feed these beasts bites of steak and it would be healthier too.

I have a 2-year old Maine Coone cat in perfect health - that is, until she eats Temptations cat treats. She has vomited now 3x after consuming them - the first time, she had intermittent episodes of vomiting for about 5 minutes after eating the treats; however, I didn’t pay much mind, because she never had an issue with other cat treats, appeared to love (LOVE!) them, and was otherwise acting normal. The second time, I noticed a small bit of fur in one pile of the vomit, so I thought perhaps her sudden sickness could be attributed to a hairball. (Again, as before, the vomiting episodes lasted about 5 minutes). The third time, I was far more wary/suspicious, so despite her begging, I only gave her 2 treats (as opposed to 4 or 5). She again got sick multiple times, and upon closer inspection, I noted that her vomit contained two things only - the Temptations, and copious amounts of bile.
I work as a scientist researching drugs to treat human afflictions, but it shouldn’t take a scientist to say that these treats surely contain both toxic and addictive ingredients, and NO living thing should be exposed to them. Shame on Whiskas for the damage they’ve caused to pets and their heartbroken owners. Luckily, my cat is back to full health after discontinuing Temptations treats. I urge you throw yours in the rubbish, even if your cat doesn’t present with rapid symptoms after consuming them. It’s clear that for many cats, the effects are insidious and often don’t appear until it’s too late.

I will say this, you make a tasty treat because my cat is OBSESSED! HOWEVER, I am not complaining to you just frustrated. If you are putting something addictive om them, cut back or stop. I cannot breathe anymore without my cat up my butt for treats. I am part of the problem. I give in because of the incessant whining. Anyway, I think it is kinda funny all these cats are addicted to treats. Lol... it is up to us as parents to wean them off. And I think all of y'all are crazy for thinking these treats killed your cats. Your cat may have eaten them and then gotten sick. Don't give them again... simple as that. If my kitty got sick, she would never get them again...

Temptations Cat Treats killed my cat! Please stop feeding your fur babies these horribly addictive treats! They have anti-freeze in them which causes their organs to shut down! My poor baby died 2 1/2 years ago because of them and I still can’t get over it. She was only a year old. I feel like I handed my fur baby poison until she died. I can’t believe these are still on the shelves!!!

My three cats just love Temptations. There are a variety of flavors which includes a dairy flavor. The price is perfect around $1.99 per package and you can very often find them on sale. Most of all Temptation treats are just the right size. Cats have little mouths and they have a hard time eating large treats.

I really like the Fancy Feast. Small cans are the amounts that I needed to feed my cats. There is no waste. The only thing wrong is it is expensive. I wish they would make more variety packages. They make any 12, 24 and 32 can sizes.
