We have fed our cat on Whiskas since she first came along --and she's about 18yrs old now!
However, this company have obviously changed the recipe, and *downgraded* the product, --probably to increase profits?
So many companies seem to try this trick, and it backfires on them, --they end up losing their market share!
Whiskas used to be one of the more expensive/premium cat foods, but we were okay abaout paying the extra, because that was all our cat liked to eat. But now we are searching around for another brand and will never buy Whiskas again.
Who are the makers of Whiskas trying to fool? They are seemingly adding far too much water to the product now, and the 'jelly' stuff obviously isn't actually based on a *authentic* meat product?
Whatever... but they can't fool my cat! Just as nature intended, she's a carnivore, and loathes 'vegetable matter' in her food, (it actually makes her vomit) but Whiskas are seemingly now bulking their catfood out with more vegetable-based stuff, and less real / actual meat product.
1. Cats don't like it / won't eat it, and...
2. cat owners feel aggrieved with the company,
3. = a bad reputation begins to circuate, and
4. the company loses it's market share / profits.
A sensible policy? I think not!
Btw: the products my cat will no longer eat, is the whole of the Whiskas canned food range.
