Nutritionally balanced diet
Picky cats loved the taste
Not very hydrating
Perfect until the recipe changed
Good quality ingredients while being more reasonably priced than pet store brands. However, the recipe of the red (dental) biscuits changed recently and my cat will no longer eat them. I just hope the other flavours don't change!
Hit and miss. Coles packets always have holes in them. Maybe thats why sometimes cats vomit and diarrhea.
As the title says, im sick of buying the big bags from coles that have a run of holes all up the sides like something intentionally skewers and perforates the bags from bottom to top.. And it always happens when coles have it on special. Ive taken many photos and shown coles staff but they dont give a rats.
Both of our cats will occasionally vomit and one has occasional diareah. We found this in particular with the wet food so we only buy chicken for wet now and cook it ourselves. Or give raw.
Of all the food in the supermarkets but, its pro...bably your only healthier choice for cats. Its not overly full of salt and seems to have the right blend of essentials. bUT... I havent noticed it on the smaller bags, but the hole problem is pretty consistent on the bigger bags. The problem is if it has holes the food goes off quicker and the cats wont eat it. We ended up having to buy the newest bag and tipping it into a vacuum lock plastic food container. We change between the black bag and the red bag, red in particular will be so acrid smelling sometimes it makes us sick.
Street cat with a fancy palate.
We adopted a rescue cat who is an extremely picky eater. We went through good knows how many brands trying to find one she would eat and not get bored with. Tried the combination of fancy feast pate and the fussy cat grain free kibble and she is finally a happy lady. She loves the taste and is very regular if you know what I mean. 5 stars!
Thank you! I'm a very happy Mum.
Finally after a year of trying out various cat foods on the market Fussy Cat grain free has saved my cats. Being fussy, finicky eaters, my two kitties were underweight, malnourished and walked away from every food I tried. I was at my wit's end!
As soon as I offered Fussy Cat grain free my kitties scoffed the food. Within a few months they were at a normal weight and very healthy. All I can say is thank you Fussy Cat.
Well priced product!
My cat prefers the wet product to the dry but seems to thrive on a combo of both. He has never got bored of this regime and is not at all interested in trying other products or treats. Fussy Cat is excellent. My rescue cat looks extremely healthy!
Purchased in July 2020.
This food has caused both my cats to get sick
Unfortunately this brand has been very bad for my two cats, one has gone to the vet because of crystals in his bladder and my other cat is now showing bad symptoms as well. We’ve also been struggling with vomiting whilst on this food. I really do not recommend this cat food.
One of the only foods that doesn’t upset my cats skin and tummy
We had so many problems working out what was going on with our cat who would often get tummy issues and itchy skin. We spend hundreds at the vet which we were just going around in circles. We have identified on our own that food plays a big part in it and over a course of a year this and 1 other brand of food we worked out was suitable for her! This stuff also doesn’t cost an arm and a leg! We havnt had to take her to the vet again since we kept her diet consistent with this.
Picky cat approved
My cat Cheese is very picky and often "decides" She no longer likes a brand or flavour of cat food or takes too long to try something like a stubborn toddler. But She really likes this brand, ate it all fast and happily.
Cat loves it
Finally, a dry food my cat enjoys eating!
For other people that are complaining of diarrhoea after changing straight to this one, you have to ween your cats into different foods slowly as to not cause an upset stomach.
Of course cats can still be sensitive to foods, even after weening, but they’re more likely to be sick if you change their regular food to any new brand straight away.
(Also, the fussy cat wet food is good too :))
Not happy, can anyone relate?
So I have a very fussy cat, having to frequently swap and change her food because she gets sick of it easily. I started feeding fussy cat kibble and mince. She loved eating it and I’ve been feeding it for 4months or so now I just change the flavour of the kibble and mince each time she finishes it. She is an indoor cat and a few months ago I cleaned her poo up not long after she did it and noticed tape worms so I gave her a tape worm treatment and they went away. Maybe a month later they returned again I gave her another treatment to fix the pr...oblem. Since the first incident I keep a close eye on her poo and if I hear her go I try and clean it as quickly as possible. Three times now she has suffered from a tape worm infestation. I’ve googled how they get tape worms, but she is a clean indoor cat. Never gets fleas. I recently bug bombs the house. So all I can put it down to is the food. Has anyone else had similar problems with this product? I am going to switch back to another brand and feed fresh mince and see if that helps
The only food my cat will eat!
My furry friend is extremely fussy it took over 5 foods to find which one he liked, when we finally gave him of your Kangaroo, Beef and Sweet Potato biscuits and he couldn't get enough of them! Very excited at meal time. Poo and wee were normal. Nothing but good things from this happy customer!
I found the same - diarrhea
I bought the tinned pots of Fussy Cat, just to try out. In two days our cat was having diarrhea, and we got very worried. This was the only change to her diet. We switched back to the food she had before, and I threw the Fussy Cat tins out.
Purchased in October 2019 for $2.00.
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
Questions & Answers
Hello kind people!
My 1 year old cat is 1month &1week pregnant.. I'm wondering if "fussy cat grain free kitten care 2-12 months" is suitable for her during her pregnancy?
Also some suggestions for wet food please? Something that is Nutritious but won't cost me my right arm
Also would something with grain be a better option?
thanks in advance..
My cat likes both the mince and the dry food. My question is about what the percentage of salt is in the kibble. It is listed in the ingredients but I would be interested to know exactly how much percentage wise was in there. Thank you.
