Caused cystitis in my 5 y/o male cat
Have to agree with other reviews...I was wondering why my cat kept having urinary problems during the past 6 months. I would only feed my cat this occasionally as a treat because he seemed to really like it...however I began to notice when I fed him this for a few days, he would develop urinary problems and would have trouble peeing. It was so bad I had to rush to the vet on a public holiday (that costed $300!!!!). I have now switched to a more expensive but healthier brand (Royal Canin) that accommodates for cats that may develop crystals - it may be more expensive, but at least it won't kill my cat and will save my hundreds in vet bills.

Not for my cat
Yesterday I fed this to my cat twice and both times she threw up what she had eaten. Not impressed. I thought the flavours sounded good - Beef, kangaroo and sweet potato. But something in the mix does not agree with my cat.

My fussy cat who has been eating this for years doesn't like the new flavours. He won't eat anything now. Sadly he is severely malnourished now and will be put to sleep tomorrow. He loved the black tin that was cut in cubes.
Change of Recipe, Cat Refuses to Touch it.
My very fussy feline absolutely loved the Fussy Cat Grain Free Turkey with Cranberries dry food.
The recipe has recently been changed to Include chicken, and where he devoured the turkey-cranberry formulation, he won’t touch the turkey-chicken-cranberry version.

Package change recipes changed.
Recipe changed with the new packaging, my cats will not go near these cat foods, bring back the old recipe, no explanation offered why the recipe has changed??? Other users have same issue.

New packaging but not the same quality of ingredients
New recipe and packaging leaves out important ingredients which are named as "vegetables". What vegetables? Your guaranteed analysis is no longer there. What percentage of ingredients such as Taurine etc listed under your old formula now not listed in the new one. I have called your company and they were clueless, and made misrepresentations that nothing changed except the design of the package which is an absolute lie! I have both the new and old packaging. Here's the proof. See the screenshots below. Your new one on the LEFT and the old one on the RIGHT. The evidence speaks for itself. I will be posting this on social media and my YouTube channel.

Cats love it, their guts hate it.
Wanted to switch one of my cats over to half dry for a while to help manage her dental issues. Not even half way through gradual introduction and it’s runny stools everywhere. Another of my cats got literally just 3-4 kibble as a treat and he has badly runny stools too. A few years back I tried them on the grain free wet, same problem. I wonder if there is some ingredient you use that is causing this reaction in my cats (different breeds btw). Either way, it’s supposed to be one of the ‘best’ cat foods in the supermarket but it did this, and no...w I’m stuck cleaning up god awful sick poop out of carpet and I have a large bag of food I can’t use. Other brand changes in the past (wet or dry, premium or supermarket food) have never done this - heck, I’ve had to do sudden changes before due to lack of availability and still no issues. It’s something with this ‘grain free’ range specifically. Will not use again.

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!

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.

Hi Mickey, Our Fussy Cat dry foods are still stocked by Coles and Woolworths as well as selected IGA stores.
We’ve given our Fussy Cat range a new look to make it easier for our customers to find and ...
Thanks for your reply. Have you repackaged it and changed the mixture as I got the white one with the blue on it and the boys don’t like it. They are so fussy. One of my boys have celiac disease...and I’m finding it hard as he will not eat the new ones.

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.

Many choosy cats loved the taste of this product. Reviewers noted that it can help raise underweight cats to a healthy weight and their cats seem healthy after eating this product. It can be a little dry and cause urine problems if the cat doesn’t get enough water through other means.
