Whiskas Purrrfectly Chicken

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Man, I know a lot on the list do not like Whiskas brand food.....I was in a pinch and picked up the "new" Purrrfectly Chicken" Pouches for my furries and they LOVE it.

It has big chunks of real meat in it and they cannot get enough.

Hogging it down like no tomorrow. Eating even more than the Nutro Natural wet bites I always feed.

Anyone else try this?

It is the wheat that everyone does not like due to the recall last year right?

Mine like Whiskas too. If I give them Nutro I end up throwing half of it away hours later. They leave half the chunks in the bowl. I guess eating Whiskas is better than no wet....right?

I have not seen the PURRfectly Chicken in my supermarket, only the PURRfectly Fish. With the fish ones, I wasn't crazy about the BHA/BHT preservative. I'd be curious to see the ingredient list for the chicken flavors.

I would like to see the ingredients also. I haven't seen the chicken, but I tried the PURRfectly Fish when I had a free sample. My cats loved it.

Yes, but I think that's genereally true of any preservative. A relatively small amount is needed, so they're pretty much always at the end of the list (or in parentheses next to the oil/fat they preserve). My avoidance of artificial preservatives is just a personal preference. They are used even in human foods, so

?? able items ( my color thing is not working)
liver... WHOSE
corn starch and wheat gluten do the same thing why both
the vitamins are synthetic and harder to assimilate
the following have definitions coming from FOOD ADDITIVES: a shoppers guide to Whats safe and whats not ... note I AM NOT GIVING ALL THE WARNINGS, many are about babies and elderly people

disodium edta - may cause kidney damage, eye and skin irritation....

bha- can cause liver and kidney damage

bht- bha plus it is banned in England

sodium nitrite (for color retention)- vomitting , diarrea

Thanks Sharky...I was thinking you may come on this thread...
SO the liver part may or may bot be a chickens..right?
is that what you are thinking?
I was just assuming since it is chicken it would be chicken liver...

I am grateful for your 411..

Oh ITA on the food preservate issue and am aware of much in the human chain..
I guess when I was typing all this out I was thinking of our motto for our food..if we can say it we do not eat it.
SO I need to give my kits the same respect since I chose to domesticate them They cannot read labels..I do not think...LOL...

Now that I relooked at all the wet in my cabinets...it wasn't Whiskas after all. It is the Meow Mix pouches they like. I got the names confused. I will check them for preservatives.
