So I reached out to Chewy.com and asked if they would be game to send us some to try.
Cat food is a hard thing to review when you are limited in your overall knowledge like I am. So I prefer to think of this as a “feature” rather than a review.
I tried the food on Charlie, Trigg, Boots (my brother’s tuxedo cat pictured to the right), Caymus and Murphy. All liked it except for Murphy. And all went for it a second time as well.
I don’t just try any food – there are certain brands that I “trust” more than others and since Liz Eastwood supports certain varieties of Nature’s Variety on her best canned cat food list, I wanted to give this a go, especially since it didn’t have any carrageenan in it. I am not crazy about the fact that it has guar gum in it, but I am also not feeding them only this food. I struggle like the rest of you about what to feed my cats and have found for me that it needs to be a balance.
Here is a quick run down of the ingredients: Salmon Broth, Salmon, Chicken, Chicken Liver, Peas, Egg Whites, Spinach, Eggs, Ground Flaxseed, Carrots, Montmorillonite Clay, Natural Flavor, Sodium Phosphate, Salt, Dried Kelp, Guar Gum, Potassium Chloride, Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Cobalt Proteinate, Potassium Iodide), Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Niacin Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Folic Acid), Taurine, L-Ascorbyl-2-Polyphosphate, Choline Chloride, Artichokes, Cranberries, Pumpkin, Tomato, Blueberries, Broccoli, Cabbage, Kale
Below are review videos that I filmed while we tested out this food:
