Anyone feed their cats Whiskas dried food?

Beauty will eat the dried food but she won't eat Whiskas wet food.

I used tio use it.  The wet food made kitties puke more.  I personally don't like the ingredients

For dry - I used the Seafood:

Ground Yellow Corn, Chicken By-product Meal, Corn Gluten Meal, Animal Fat (Preserved with BHA/BHT), Natural Poultry Flavor, Wheat Flour, Rice, Brewers Dried Yeast, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Choline Chloride, Shrimp Meal, Tuna Meal, Salmon Meal, Calcium Carbonate, dl-Methionine, Taurine, Whitefish Meal, Trace Minerals (Zinc Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Potassium Iodide), Vitamins (dl-Alpha Tocopherol Acetate [Source of Vitamin E], Folic Acid, Vitamin A Acetate, Niacin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement [Vitamin B2], Vitamin D3 Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Thiamine Mononitrate [Vitamin B1], Biotin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride [Vitamin B6]), Red 3, Ethoxyquin (A Preservative).

Except for the Shrimp, Salmon, Tuna and Whitefish meals (way down the list of ingredients, so very little actually in there) - there is very little meat in this formula.  Other no nos are Bha/Bht, ethoxyquin, and glutens/flour for main proteins.  Too many carbs.

The wet food is a little more palatable (can't find the exact canned ingredients) - but I hesitate to feed foods with Wheat glutens after thre rrecalls, and I don't think the chunks of meat were real meat (used Turkey & Giblets and Seafood flavors.).  Kitties would usually lick off gravy.  Once purchased 2 cans when ran out of my regular diet - the food smells funny, and isn't good to let sit out.

My personal opinion - 3 paws down.

I only feed Whiskas dried food to Beauty because she loves it!

If she'd said yuck to it when I first gave her some I wouldn't be feeding it to her.

Just because a cat will eat something doesn't mean it's good for them.

Like humans, cats can survive on junky food, but they won't be healthy and thrive.
The preservatives BHA/BHT alone are reason enough not to feed this food, then take into consideration the other ingredients and your basically feeding your cat corn and mystery meat  Shocked

Have you ever read http://www.catinfo.org/? This is a great source of information about feline nutrition.

I'm trying to find an alternative food she likes.

I know just because a cat likes something doesn't mean it's good for them, there's some food I will NOT feed Beauty because it wouldn't be good for her.

Chocolate being one of them, no matter how much Beauty tries to persuade me she will like it!
