Only good things.
I have an older cat that has been on this for a very long time and younger 8 month old kitten who is now on this dry food. I have nothing but good things to say about this food and both my cats love it. My older cat had blood in her urine until I found this food and it helped tremendously and the younger had constant loose stools and blood. The kitten is on vet Royal Canin sensitivity control wet. I would never give my cat a bowl of any biscuit no matter what brand as they need water in their food otherwise their risk of crystals in urine incr...eases. My cats get their wet food with these sprinkled on top a very small handful. If I run out wet food I would add some warm water to the biscuits and throw away any not eaten. Cats generally don't drink enough water and get most from wet food. I don't necessarily think it's just the dry food has caused the problem for other people in reviews, it's probably not enough water and too much of the dry food. If you read most/any packet of dry food it will say about making sure enough water is available. My older cat has felix or whiskas jellys with this food. My tip do not give dry food alone and always with wet and certainly not a big bowl full of the stuff. Introducing new foods can also be tricky. I love Fussy Cat food. My review is based on the dry food only!
Excellent for cats with urinary problems
Our cat has had urinary problems in the past, with blood being found in his urine. We discovered it was his brand of cat biscuits. We switched to Fussy Cat Grainfree Dry Cat Food a few months ago, and our cat hasn’t had any more problems since! Our moggy devours these, and we can tell he absolutely loves them. We stick to the blue bag. They are a nice, moist biscuit and they keep him full for a long time. They often go on special at the big supermarkets for 40% off, so that's always a good time to stock up on the big 2.5kg bags.
I usually feed my cat Applaws dry cat food but was given a bag of fussy cat grainfree dry food and thought I would give it a shot to see if he likes it. 10 minutes after consumption my cat came running to my feet foaming and drooling from the mouth before vomiting his entire dinner up. I highly recommend not feeding this to your cat! Hes now eating his usual food in small bits and drinking little water every now and then.
Great food for my moggies
My 2 year old Turkish Angora was eating Whiskas dry & wet food simply because I could not afford the more expensive foods but he was becoming very thin & his fur was coming out in clump. I bought a small pack of Fussy Cat Grain Free & s can to see how he went & he loves it. I get the 2.5kg bags on special at Woolworths for $19 & the vans are $1.80 on special. He is doing so much better on this & has his furry coat back & is heavy again. My 9 week old kitten even eats from the big boys bowl at times& preferring over the kitten food he is currently on
This product caused by cat to vomit
I am writing this review this morning following an incident with my cat after I had given her a serving of the Salmon & Ocean fish tinned food. I was out in my backyard 10 minutes after feeding her, she came running towards me foaming from the mouth. I brought her inside, cleaned her up and put water in her mouth. I have to say this food actually stinks and at the time was concerned about giving it to her. I purchased this product as it states it is grain free. I have put aside and frozen the rest of this product and will be contacting the company for a response. I would not recommend anyone to purchase this product until it is tested.
Purchased in July 2019 for $1.80.
Not Happy... My poor girl has UTI's and crystals.
I switched from Friskies as I was told she wasn't getting what she needed and was filled with harmful fillers. I switched to this after reading good reviews and being a healthier option. So far it has now cost me $500 to help her with UTI's and now crystals. I am NOT impressed. She didn't need to get sick. I will go back to what didn't make her sick.
This product doesn't even deserve 1 star
Gave our cat a blocked bladder!
My cat is currently staying at the vet thanks to this food unbalancing his ph levels in his urine from all the magnesium, salt and carbs in these biscuits, which in turn caused crystals to develop in his bladder and block his bladder so he couldn't go to the toilet!! He almost died!! The pet food Industry needs to be regulated!! Keep away from supermarket food, and feed mince meats from the butcher is what the vet told us. Now we are up for big vet bills and have a sad sick cat!!
Terrible - don’t feed this to your cat!
Thought grain free dry food from vip was a healthier option for our cat. Feel terrible that we didn’t realise sooner, but this stuff was making our cat so thirsty and the salmon flavour makes her so sick. Will never buy this again, and really hope she will be ok! Terrible and cruel to produce such bad food for poor animals.
Loose motions gone, but now frequent urination
I have four cats who were always doing loose number 2s. They were eating Whiskas dry food. I was given a pack of this from a friend whose cats didn't like it... and the immediate effect was that they all started passing solid poos. Magic!
However... I'm *also* discovering that they are urinating much more than before. 2 days max before the litter has to be replaced. So I'm going to have to give another brand a try...
No more loose motions
I had a boarding cattery and I used to mix the grain free in with the other dry foods....Not cheap brands, better quality. That's a lot of trays to clean. Now at 82 I cannot do that any more. Bred 10 breeds of pedigreed cats over forty years, now not physically capable. I have just acquired a 2 1/2 year old devon rex boy (bred them myself also). I have his tray in my toilet so I can change it sitting. I noticed he was weeing heaps.....Tray changed every day.....And drinking 1/2 large bowl of water daily. Alarm bells. Have put him on rawand ...wet food with fussy cat grain free added. Noticed the difference immediately. He has very little hair also and I am hoping he will coat up because of the change. I know that kangaroo meat is the highest protein, almost fat free meat available and as he eats anything, I will grt that one for him. Some of my other cats only liked the turkey one. I have not tried the canned ones so will not buy heaps until I try him out. I cannot just get into a car to go to the vet so keeping him healthy and happy is paramount. Thank you for this food, I also implore you to never take it off the market,
Thought it was great but it caused cystitis
My cat has been eating royal canin ragdoll for the first 5 years of its life. Changed to this as it was convenient. Seemed fine for months and he suddenly started urinating frequently. He drinks plenty of water and his habits haven't changed. We also feed him the wet food from vip. Recently he weed a few times on a bed. This led to me realising why he peed a lot. All three patches over a day have crystals so big and so much it looked like someone had sprinkled glitter in his pee. Time to put him on specialised treatments to fix the issue from this food
My cat has urinary tract infection
I have fed my Persian cat this brand solidly for 8 months. She loves it and I like the big size biscuits because it makes her chew and use her teeth, to prevent gum disease .
Unfortunately she has developed a UTI which I can only put down to her diet. So I will be avoiding this like the plague (and any other supermarket brands) and spending more on a quality dental brand. Which I should've done in the beginning.
My male cat nearly died from crystals in bladder
My 2 year old male cat had a blockage in his urethra caused by crystals from his bladder lodging. He nearly died.
Cost $2,500 to save him. Catheter inserted three times, but kept blocking. Luckily the last time it didnt block
Vet said it was caused by this food.
He is now on an expensive Vet diet for the rest of his life.
Male cats are more suseptible to forming crystals.
Dont risk it- dont buy this food!!!!

If I could rate a 10 I would
Had the toughest time with my kittens! They had constant diarrhea and my vet recommended “Hills Prescription Diet Feline ID Digestive Care Canned” for 2-3 weeks which worked great but they’re pricey and a small can. I was scared to try anything because the diarrhoea would come back which was so stressful :( But I decided to opt for a grain free canned food and picked VIP fussy cat brand (the blue one) as it wasn’t expensive and it’s 400g! I was that person who bought 30 when they went on special lol, as my budget is tight. I stuck with it for ...a few weeks until their digestion normalised and was so relieved when it worked! Me and hubby went away for 3 days so we decided to give the kittens the dry version (but the red bag as the biscuits are small circles). that’s what our older cat eats, since we were over feeding them wet, putting it in the fridge etc, IT WORKED! I’ve never been so excited over solid poos in my life each step of the way!!! It was such a stressful process and also a waiting game but I just want to say a huge thank you to VIP Fussy Cat for being affordable and especially able to be digested by little tummies!!!! I can’t stress that enough!!! Please don’t discontinue the 2.5kg red bag as that’s the only food they can digest! Some coles don’t even stock this flavour so I need to order on Woolworths online ! But it’s worth it, thank you!!!

Affordable and healthy
All three of my cats love this food. The ingredients are great, really healthy and no nasties like some of the big brands. Compared to some of the 'premium' brands too they don't contain fillers. They never seem to get tired of it. Great value especially when I can pick up a 1kg bag at Woolies. Grain free is the best choice for your pets. My cats get a scoop in the morning and raw or wet food at night, shiny coats and purrs all around.

My cats love this food, and it loves them
I buy the VIP Fussy Cat Grain Free dry biscuits, as well as the portioned mince packets, and occasionally the tins when our budget is slightly tighter.
My two cats get a scoop of biscuits in the mornings, and twice a day 1-2 mince packets to share (or mince in the morning and half a tin in the evening).
Both my cats look beautifully healthy: shiny soft fur, clean teeth, and clear eyes. We often get comments from visitors about how lovely their fur is. They're a healthy weight, don't overeat, and have never had any health problems.
I give the credit to the high quality of the food we give them.
No fillers, no nonsense, just what cats need.

Questions & Answers
How much dry food should I feed my 10mnth old cats? They weigh about 1kg each & are female domestic short hair tabby cats.
Real Pet Food Co.Fussy Cat
We’d suggest feeding our new Fussy Cat Kitten Care dry food to cats under 12 months of age.
For kittens weighing between 1-3kg we suggest feeding 45g to 110g (or ½ cup to 1 cup) of dry food per day (for each cat) if this is the only food being fed. You can visit our website to see the our suggested feeding chart.
You may need to feed more or less than what we suggest as each animal will have individual requirements.
If you haven’t already, we’d suggest confirming your cats’ weights by popping them on the scales at home or at your local vet clinic, as ~1kg sound quite underweight for a 10 month old cat.
We hope this helps.

I gave this to my cats recently thinking I was doing them a favour switching to grain free but they had awful diarrhea and vomiting. I stopped using it and they still were ill until a week later. I wouldn’t use it again and don’t recommend it.
VIP- the question below was asked 8months ago. Why no response?? Please revert. Your non-response makes your company appear to have something to hide.
Hi could you please tell me about Fussy Cat tin food that is grain free. I cant see how much salt is in it. Is it suitable to feed to a cat with second stage kidney disease. Is this food of a high quality?
