First and foremost, I cannot stress how important it is to feed your cat an all canned food diet - cats do not have a drive for thirst, so only a canned food diet will keep them correctly hydrated [diabetes, urine crystal free].

Important to learn: if you feed your cat all wet diet, they only need to drink 1oz of water a day to keep fully hydrated. If you feed your cat an all dry diet, they need to drink 7oz of water to keep hydrated. That's a full cup of water!

Second, cat food must be high in protein, high to low in fat [depending if you want your cat to be lean], and have no more than 10% carbs. Dry foods are 30% plus percent carbs. Diabetes is rampant in older cats, and it's recommended to keep their carb intake at 5-10%.

You should feed grain-free diet and feed meat from feathered birds, not beef, never fish. Grain free almost always means high fat, so be careful if you want to keep your cats lean and healthy.

I feed this Fancy Feast formula, plus Merrick's cowboy cookout or grammy pot pie [grain free, low fat], plus wellness turkey and chicken formulas [grain free, low protein, high fat]. I use Fancy Feast to entice the cat then they eat whatever else is in their dish [wellness, etc]. Grain free food, while great for them, doesn't really taste great.

This formula is:
56% protein
33% fat
10% carbs
74 calories per can

I am the proud owner of 5 cats and whenever a new type of canned food is tried in our household, all five of the kitties try the new food and then, after having tried the food at least four time, the kitties hold a meeting with me and then tell me how they vote for the new dish.

This review is of Purina Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys Tastemakers Yellowfin Tuna and Shrimp with Wild Rice in Gravy Cat Food. I, the owner of the group, initially saw this new offering from Fancy Feast in PetsMart. Occasionally, I make a run in there to pick up a few items to supplement what we get from Amazon. I like to buy a few cans of a new food and introduce it to the group instead of buying an entire case from Amazon and taking the chance that it will get a "thumbs down" vote and then I will be stuck with a whole case of something that no one likes. Oddly enough, even though I have five tasters, it almost always happens that everyone likes a given food, or everyone dislikes it. Rarely to I chance upon something that gets a positive vote from one or two and a negative vote from the others. I was quite hopeful when I initially purchased this Yellowfin Tastemaker as the kitties all DO LIKE the plain Yellow Fin Tuna with nothing added to spice it up. However, shrimp is not always a favorite, so I had to wait and see.

So, about a month ago the kitties had their first can and scarfed it all down, right now, right away. Hah! All you cat parents out there know this is not a sure thing. So, a week later, can number two was given...and inhaled, then on two successive nights the other two cans were given...and every one ate it up and sat around smacking their lips. So, time for a vote:

Gabriella, the Lady in Charge, age 3, stated that it was FINE, but gave not other details. Trinity, THE LEADING MALE, age 4, feigned a fair amount of disinterest and noted that it was OK, but he would prefer variety. He would not make this and "every day" meal for himself. Then the twins, Wisdom and Mercy, age 1, little ladies popped in and gushed about this food and fell all over each other giving it "Rave Reviews!" Both LOVE the Gravy and are Delighted with the Tuna, like the crunchy Rice, and state that "here even the Shrimp is good." ("We usually do not like Shrimp at all, at all. We do not even like Fancy Feast Fish and Shrimp!"Fancy Feast Gourmet Cat Food, Flaked Fish & Shrimp Feast, Flaked 3-Ounce Cans (Pack of 24) They are a bit spoiled. Finally, Mr. Yellow Kitty, Grand Male, age 10, weighed in very thoughtfully and stated that he liked this because the Tuna was not overwhelming, the shrimp added an understated taste explosion, the rice was good fiber for the older set, and "He especially likes the generous amount of Gravy." "I COULD eat it every night if I needed to do so.) (Wouldn't it be a dream to find six or seven varieties that THEY would eat night after night after night!!!!...an owner's dream come true!)

The kitties stated that IF POSSIBLE, they would give this four and a half stars instead of five because not everyone would eat this everynight. Both Gabby and Trinity made it clear that about twice a week was all they could handle of this. "A bit too fishy" they state. But their lack of enthusiasm is trounched by the other three who are VERY FOND of this.

So there is the vote: two who like it OK and three who put it on the FAV LIST. And the kitties, Gabriella, Trinity, Wisdom, Mercy and Yellow Kitty say a big "thank you" for listening to their opinions. They feel like "they are the ones down there in the food bowls" and state "We ALWAYS give our HONEST OPINION." So, thank you.

We've been putting out cat food for stray animals for a couple of years, but when one of the strays decided to stick around (and we decided to make her an indoor cat) she refused to eat the food she had been willing to eat as an outdoor cat. We must have tried a dozen different brand/flavor combinations (fearing that we'd never find something kitty would like) before we gave this line a try. It smells like regular food, now kitty is very happy when it's meal time, and we're profoundly relieved.

First off, let me tell you a few things about my cat and wet food: 1) On a good day he licks up the juice and leaves the chunks; 2) He refuses to eat pate; 3) He will love it on Monday and hate it on Tuesday; 4) He has a delicate digestive system; 5) He can sniff out medicine in wet food like a hunting dog tracking a deer.

Having said all of those things, none of them apply when using this wet food. He loves the Elegant Medleys (only the ones in delicate sauce) and he will eat every last drop of it. I mix his powdered medicine in his food daily and he still eats it! Also, he has yet to get tired of the three flavors and none of them upset his stomach. For the picky kitty, I definitely recommend this food!

Fancy Feast has always been the wet food of choice for our cats (three different cats). When we saw these 'green can' flavors at the grocery store we tried them and the cats absolutely love them. They actually look really tasty, like tuna salad or egg salad, rather than generic brown lumps. Since we go through 2-3 cans of this a day, getting them in these mixed boxes is a great convenience. Thanks, Amazon.

My cat has become a very picky eater since she has gotten older. This is the only food that she will eat consistently. The florentine cans also seem to be of very high quality. When I open the can, it smells like real food instead of pet food. It also has less fat and less processed ingredients than other brands that I have compared it to.

One of my cats is a picky eater and this is the only wet food that she will willingly eat. One thing I do not like about this food is that if there are any bits left on the dish when it goes into the dishwasher, they turn into tiny, pale, stringy pieces that clog up the holes in the dishwasher's sprayer arm.

I am also disappointed that Fancy Feast uses general meat by-products (it's not specifically chicken or turkey or beef...it could be a mixture of anything!) and they add cheap, synthetic vitamin K3 (menadione sodium bisulfite complex) to their food. They should be able to use higher quality ingredients with the way the Elegant Medleys line is priced. Because of this I am trying to find a new favorite for my cat.

I am a Maine coon and this is my favourite junk food. Tastes like alfredo sauce (if I knew what that tasted like). Better than the other bland Fancy Feast varities out there. Reducing the price would pursuade my miserly owner to buy some more.

My old cat is inconsistent about recognizing her need to eat and drink, and the vet says she may have onset of feline dementia. Like 90+ yr old people, sweet old girl sometimes just 'forgets' to nourish/hydrate herself. I concentrate on giving her high quality-no grain or other filler--wet food. While she thrived on premium dry cat foods when younger, I've fed her almost exclusively wet food the past 3 yrs. After much experimentation, the one she will eat more than 3 days in a row is the Elegent Medleys shredded fare. She prefers shredded to the pate texture, and since she does seem to prefer it, I think Elegant Medleys is the particular brand we must stick to.

After an incident earlier this year when she became so dehydrated she required a day at the vet's for sub-q fluids, I am now rigorously monitoring her fluid intake. Every morning I note the amount I replenish in her water fountain to make sure she's taking in adequate fluids. On a really good day, she will drink around 12-14 oz water + eat two cans of Elegent Medleys shredded fare. With that intake, she's in tip top shape, relatively speaking :-). Under 8oz H2O and down to 1 can of food/day, she's on the road to dehydration. BOTTOM LINE? Old cats need wet food because (due to decreased appetite & cognitive function) they tend to not drink enough water. My experience is that around 10 yrs of age, and certainly by 12, we need to supplement dry food with wet, and by old-old age, they likely need an all-wet canned food diet of the highest quality affordable. Read those labels! (and I think a clean, well-maintained fountain is just about mandatory for all our sweet kitties--just sayin'.)

Beware.
My cat loves seafood varieties, but is not as into the chicken/turkey/beef.
I saw the description on Amazon that this was a variety pack and included the following:

1) White Meat Chicken Florentine, Yellow Fin Tuna Florentine and Turkey Florentine
2) Ocean Whitefish & Tuna Feast, savory Salmon Feast, Cod, Sole & Shrimp Feast

However, when I received the 24pack, it has 2 12packs of line 1 and none of line 2.
It turns out the description is wrong for this item and you will receive 24 of line 1 only. Sucks because line 2 seemed like it would be a great option for my cat.
