Christmas Cat
Back to Press releases

Christmas is known as the season for giving and new research reveals that at Christmas our cats play an even more important role as members of our family, with a whopping 86% of Kiwi’s planning to include their cats in Christmas festivities.

Independently commissioned by Fancy Feast to explore the unique bond we share with our cats, the research uncovers that more than three quarters (78%) of cat owners would feel guilty about leaving their pets out of the Christmas celebrations.

So just how do Kiwi cat owners plan to share the love this Christmas? 96% plan on feeding their cats a special Christmas treat, 76% plan to buy them a new toy to play with on Christmas morning and some cat-loving Kiwis are even planning to capture the cheer by dressing their feline for a festive photoshoot at home.

Showcasing just how in-tune Kiwi cat owners feel they are with their pets, nearly two thirds (64%) said they would instinctively know if their cat felt left out of their Christmas celebrations.

To help Kiwi’s include and delight their cats this Christmas, Fancy Feast has 1,000 Fancy Feast Feastivities Christmas prize packs to giveaway. Each prize packontains a handpicked selection of our Fancy Feast range designed to delight Kiwi cats this Christmas, including new Inspirations pouch recipes, new Petite Cuisine recipes and new Puree Kiss Naturals cat treats.

Purina New Zealand Senior Brand Manager Yorn Polaczek says, “Kiwi cat owners have told us that Christmas is the one time of the year they want to show a little extra love for their feline friends and what better way to do it than with chef-inspired recipes and the treats they can enjoy on Christmas Day.

“We’ve taken all the hard work out of choosing a gift for your cat this year. Simply visit, upload your favourite photo of your cat and tell us why your cat should win the ultimate Fancy Feast taste experience, and you could be in to win the perfect Christmas gift for your car from Fancy Feast.
