One is chicken & lamb, the remaining 2 are chicken & duck. I did not know whether the chicken & lamb or chicken & duck were safe to feed, so I could only give Mushu 2 of the 5 packs (obviously he only got a tiny bit - not a whole pack! My cats ate most of it - bar half a teaspoon). Would appreciate some advice on this.
I think that the chicken with duck is probably a better bet than the lamb.

My understanding is that whilst lamb won't do hamsters any harm in small quantities, it's not really an ideal food for them and probably shouldn't be purchased with feeding them in mind.

I think sticking with the lamb for the cats and the duck to be shared would be a good idea.Duck tends to be one of the meats that needs to be fed infrequently due to the fat content from what I recall,but as with the lamb it would be perfectly fine for cats.

As for the texture not going over well,I think lots of cats and even hamsters just have different texture preferences.

Thanks Fluffagrams and Amity. I think I'd prefer to avoid the duck and lamb just to be on the safe side, but I agree that the duck would probably be better than lamb. Maybe I will be able to find a multipack of the chicken somewhere...
