Owned by the Nestle Purina PetCare Company in St. Louis, Missouri,
Friskies cat food brand provides a variety of wet and dry cat food in
seafood, poultry and beef flavors, as well as other cat products.
Nestle Purina originally began providing animal food in 1894 when William Danforth established the Purina Mills Company as a way for farmers to readily access livestock feed.
Eventually, in the early 1930s, Danforth started a line of dry dog food, which expanded to include dry cat food as well. In 1985, Purina merged with the Swiss company Nestles to become the Nestle Purina PetCare Company.
Friskies produces both wet and dry foods for the fussiest of felines and the line of dry food choices include:
Grillers' Blend - Containing turkey, beef and chicken flavors accented with garden vegetables, Grillers' Blend dry cat food provides taurine and vitamin A for healthy eyesight, protein for proper growth and muscle development as well as Vitamin B12, folic acid, niacin and vitamin E supplements.
Indoor Delights - Formulated to address digestive issues affecting indoor cats, Indoor Delights contains ingredients to help keep cats at a healthy weight and provides hairball control for the compulsive groomer. Other ingredients include calcium phosphate, zinc sulfate and riboflavin supplement.
Seafood Sensations – The Friskies cat food for the seafood lover, Seafood Sensations dry cat food provides a combination of tuna, crab, ocean fish and salmon flavors enhanced with a bit of seaweed as well as nutritional supplements such as vitamin D-3, biotin and ferrous sulfate.
Kelp, seaweed and algae are sources of iodine, iron, trace minerals and potassium for cats.
Different kinds of sea vegetables contain
easily digestible proteins necessary for a cat's health and blue-green
algae and sea lettuce are forms of seaweed that provide iron and
glycogen precursors that enhance brain functioning and cognition.
Surfin & Turfin Favorites -This kind of cat food offers cats the taste of both seafood and meat such as chicken, whitefish, salmon, liver and beef.
Friskies has a wide variety of wet cat food flavors for even the pickiest of cats and some popular flavors are:
Nestle Purina also offers a line of Friskies cat food for senior cats called Senior Diet which includes such flavors as Meaty Bits with Lamb and Rice in Gravy, Pate Pacific Salmon Dinner in Sauce and Pate Turkey and Giblets Dinner in Gravy.
Designed for cats seven years and older, Senior Diet is made with bite-sized pieces of meat with extra support for optimal immune system functioning.
Nutritional supplements include taurine, potassium iodide, vitamin D3, copper sulfate and vitamin E.
Taurine is especially important to a cat because of its ability to prevent feline retinal degeneration and potential irreversible blindness.
In addition, taurine contributes to heart and oral health as well.
Cats require sufficient amounts of taurine in their diet because they are unable to naturally synthesize it within their body.
The Special Diet line contains nutrients that enhance feline urinary tract health by decreasing the pH level in urine and lower levels of magnesium that may contribute to kidney stones.
Flavors of Special Diet are beef and liver, ocean whitefish, salmon and chicken and beef.
Special Diet is not available as a dry food but could be supplemented with Friskies Indoor Delights brand dry cat food.
