Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys Wild Salmon Primavera
Pros: pleasing mix of fish, vegetables and greens for the cat – small pieces in a sauce
Cons: a bit more expensive than “bargain” cat foods
My cat insists on greens in his diet, and it seems his digestion does better when I incorporate greens into his meal plan. One way to make him happy is feeding him Fancy Feast Wild Salmon Primavera from the Elegant Medleys line. Sounds like he eats better than I do!
Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys Wild Salmon Primavera is packaged in a metal can with a pop-top lid. The can has a distinctive green tint to it in keeping with their “can greens” advertising. Each can contains three ounces of food.
Our morning routine begins with the cat trampolining off my slumbering body. If that doesn’t grab my attention, he persistently inserts his head beneath my sprawled arm: “Kitty wants pets now!” And if that doesn’t roll me out of bed and onto my feet, I soon feel whiskers tickling my nose, and slanting an eye open reveals a feline face a quarter-inch from mine. Since this completely freaks me out every time, I don’t know why he doesn’t start with that maneuver.
Once I’m mobile and have successfully been herded to the kitchen, the cat begins wrapping himself around my ankles. I tell him that my landing in a heap on the floor won’t feed him faster. Not that trying to talk commonsense to a determined feline wins me more floor space. All these antics are his gambit to more quickly gain his wet food with greens.
One of his favorite wet foods is Fancy Feast Wild Salmon Primvaera. I treat the wet food as a bonus addition to his main staple of dry food. I divide the small can in half, giving him half the food and saving the other half for the next day.
I spoon the food onto a saucer. For a small can, a half-can portion provides a generous serving for the cat. He is an adult male cat who enjoys both his wet and dry foods.
The salmon primavera is packed in a sauce. For the most part, the pieces are small and rarely need chopping into finer bits. This meal is definitely not chunky. The cat food ingredients with the fish, vegetables and greens are mixed well together. Looking at the food, I can see bits of the greens and carrots. There is no obvious odor to the food.
I leave the saucer of food on the floor near his dishes. In the morning, he dives into eating the food but rarely finishes his half-can serving. However , throughout the day, he returns to eat until the dish is clean. He has no trouble eating this food since the pieces are small enough for easy consumption. I keep the leftover can of food covered and on the counter at room temperature. The cat is just as happy eating the food the second day.
