I happened upon the Go! Natural Pet Food (Go Natural is made by Petcurean Pet Nutrition) booth and saw there were cans of food. I investigated further and saw that they were for kitties too! There weren’t too many kitty options at the KC Pet Expo, as it was more dog focused.
So I inquired with the rep there and asked if I could buy some cans of food and he said that they weren’t for sale. I then explained I had a website and would like to try them out and would do a product review on them. So he gave me two cans of these flavors they have for kitties:
- FRESHWATER TROUT CANNED FORMULA
- Chicken & Vegetable
Today’s review is for their Freshwater Trout canned formula. Fortunately, I had my cats at my mom’s house, so when we returned from the Expo, I had four Ragdoll kitties to try it on! Everyone, but Charlie, who is dry food obsessed tried it and liked it. Charlie wouldn’t even try it. Gotta break him of this dry food habit.
So the first test with the Go! Natural Freshwater Trout canned formula was whether or not the kitties liked it. 3 outta 4 ain’t too bad, and quite honestly, I was surprised it was 3 outta 4 – Murphy is such a picky eater (pickier than Rags was) that I thought it’d be 2 outta 4.
So the second test with Go! Natural Freshwater Trout canned formula was the fact that it’s grain free – and well, I wouldn’t have fed it to my cats if it weren’t! So it passed that at the Expo.

I definitely like Go! Natural Grain Free Freshwater Trout Canned Cat Food and will buy more of it – am curious where it might be sold locally as well.
You can buy 24 cans of Go! Natural Grain Free Freshwater Trout Canned Cat Food on Amazon.com for $44.83 or about $1.87 per 5.5 oz can – which makes it 34 cents an ounce. If you find it cheaper somewhere else, please let me know! Update! 11/16/10 – Pam told me she found it cheaper at Only Natural Pet – by the case – Petcurean GO!
