In 1982, Fancy Feast was introduced in 3-ounce cans of wet food in seven different varieties. It was probably the first "gourmet" cat food. In its original commercial, an announcer said, "Your cat give you that cold shoulder when you serve cold, leftover cat food? Watch it warm up to Fancy Feast". It also featured a white Persian cat who talked in her thoughts. It was sold along with Friskies and other pet foods in 1985 to Nestlé, and the merger became Friskies PetCare Company. The food is said to be a cat favorite by owners.
"Fancy Feast, darling?" (1982)
"A moist and delicious meal in every can." (1982–1984)
"Is it love, or is it Fancy Feast?" (2005–2008)
"The best ingredient is love." (2010–present)
