This is an old post from the old blog. I’m moving a lot of these posts to this blog, so that I can delete the dinosaur. Precious Prissy was still alive when I wrote this post, so it’s pretty bittersweet to read it. It’s always good to remember her, but I’ll always miss her beautiful little face and graceful, dainty, perfectly delightful disposition. She was so laid back – such a contrast to Miss Alexa!
This particular post actually had over 20 comments, which I’m not moving here, although they were great. I think it was split – about half of the commentators gave thumbs up to this cat food, while half said their cats didn’t seem to care for it.
What experience have you had with this brand? At the time, I hadn’t given Fancy Feast to my cats before, but since then, Alexa has fallen flat out in love with it.
Disney (a name that brings a smile to just about every face, including mine) has jumped, mouse ears first, into the $75 billion global pet care industry ($36 billion in the U.S., alone) with lines of products for cats, dogs, fish, and hamsters. I believe they started with an Old Yeller line of dog food products.
I really first took notice when I saw their Aristocats Cat Food on the shelves at Kroger. Our babies love to try new goodies, so I bought one of each flavor. (On a side note, the cans are perfectly adorable, with scenes from the movie on the side.) This was, honestly, one of the only brands of cat food that our cats, unanimously, loved. Whiskas and Aristocats now stand as the only two “wet food” varieties that result in extremely happy cats and over-licked cat dishes around our house, inside and out.
Prissy and Bo will absolutely eat anything you set in front of them. As though she was determined to prove it, the other day an olive fell off of my pizza and Prissy ate it before I could pick it up. Then she wanted more but I just couldn’t feel good about myself feeding olives to a cat.
Svenn and Alexa are pickier than Bo and Prissy. Usually, he only likes dry food (and only some brands, at that), but he threw himself into the Aristocats cat food. They’ve all requested that I grab more cans on my next Kroger trip. I’m a soft touch, so OF COURSE I’ll do just that!
Apparently, Disney is also planning to launch a line of cat products from the movie “That Darn Cat.” My test panel is looking forward to it.
