Our cats won't come near Whiskas

Any explanation why our cats sniffed at cat food from Whiskas? They sniffed at it, then started scratching around the bowl and tried to bury it as if it was .........................

In the end, it was back to the daily cooked fish ... oh that smell in the morning!

Anyone else had similar experience with Whiskas. The cat breeder said that it was something to do with using wheat. I have no clue as I just like cats but have no clue about cats, cat foods or behavioural issues.

Apologies moderator. Think this should have gone in another section. Saw it too late. Still finding my way around your great site.

I think it fits OK in behavior, but I'll move it to Health & Nutrition anyway.

Maybe they knew artificial colors and preservatives when they smelled them

*cough cough* My cats eat whiskers because it is so much harder to find high quality wet food in the UK than it is in the US. And, yes, they like it! I thought cats covered their food once they had finished so as to cover their scent, like they would in the wild...not because they are as snobby about cat food as some people seem to be

I think Whiskas and Whiskers are two different foods, though, correct?

And if feeding my cats high-quality food is snobby, well then please pass the Grey Pou-pon

Have you tried Liquivite? Think that's a wet food. The breeder that I designed the website for recommends it. Thought it was for special health occasions only really.

My cats eat better than I do!!! Cooked fish, fillet steak, prawns, ham, chicken and dry foods.

Never tried wet food.
