Read the ingredients. The fact alone that they use "meat by-products" as an ingredient keeps me away. Meat can be any animal, and by-products can be meat in any condition or cut down to dead, decaying, diseased, etc. animals.

I would strongly suggest reading this thread :

Info. & Links on why canned is better than all dry diet

I'm still new here on the forums, and I don't want to start harping on good vs bad food, since I'm still learning myself. However, there is a wealth of information here on these forums about all types of diets for your cat. I hope you kept your receipt though, as that food is not very good for your cat.

Fancy Feast is like McDonald's for us. We LOVE the taste, but it's not very good for us at all. If I were you, I would just finish the case as you research a bit more. You can always make a more educated decision later.

Good luck!

I've heard FF referred to as "kitty crack"....warning it can be addictive! I used to keep a couple of cans on hand in case a cat got sick and/or went off its food. Few can resist FF.

Yeah, it seems like a lot of people have said once they start them on Fancy Feast it's really hard to get them off of it.

Ok ~ the by products isn't great but heck there are some high priced foods out there that have this as well.

NOW ~ the REALLY dangerous thing about Fancy feast can be found later down the line of ingredients:

menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity)

This stuff is HORRIBLE. The FDA has banned this as it is toxic. The World Health Organization and many other countries have completely banned it out of everything.

What do our great and wonderful pet food companies do?! Oh its toxic to humans? SOOOO what about pets, they will eat it ~ they will eat anything.

Google that substance and you will have millions of pages to read about. The stuff is TOXIC even by FDA standards and pet foods still pack it in there <sigh>
