Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack Grain-Free Cat Food Pouches boxe

As many of you know, we are Chewy Influencers – which means we are a part of the Chewy.com pet influencer program. Every month an email is sent out to us, asking us if we want to feature a certain list of items – the items range from cat and dog food to things for reptiles. There are usually only 3-4 cat items. One of the items this month was the Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack.

I feed my cats Weruva Cats in the Kitchen pouches – 4 flavors, in particular, so I decided to choose those and feature them here.

I am not a cat nutritionist.  Because of that, I do not think it is fair for me to “review” a cat food.  However, I am OK featuring one that I feed to my cats, so that other people can make the decision as to whether or not they think their cats might like it and if it works for them and their household.  You can read about what I feed my cats here.

If I had it my way, Charlie and Trigg would eat whole prey.  However, my efforts to encourage them to eat that failed.  And my efforts to feed them a strictly wet food diet have also failed – Charlie gets 2 tablespoons of dry food a day and Chiggy gets about 1/2 tablespoon right now (this might change in the future where I get them off of dry food again).  Although it is not ideal, neither is my diet.  I have to be realistic and feed what my cats will eat and what I can deal with given our life, etc.  They eat 85-90% wet food only, but there is some dry food in their diet, so that they will eat the wet food.  I still do not in general support dry food – I can’t in good consciousness – however, it did save Charlie was really going downhill with weight loss (re-introducing a small amount of dry food helped his appetite to want to eat more of the wet food I was offering).

I do know there is controversy behind Weruva being one of the best wet foods on the market because of the fish they use, the fact that the product is manufactured in a human grade USDA certified facility in Thailand as well as the vitamin K they choose to use – if a reader reading this knows of another reason, please list it in the comments below.

My cats really like Weruva and won’t always eat the canned cat foods I would prefer for them to eat. So, I compromise with Weruva – but it’s not the only brand of cat food that they eat.

The variety pack has all 6 flavors of the pouches:

  • Green – Chick Magnet
  • Purple – Love Me Tender
  • Red – Mack, Jack and Sam
  • Orange – Pumpkin Jack Splash
  • Yellow – Pumpkin Lickin’ Chicken
  • Blue – 1 If by Land, 2 if by the Sea

My cats like the green, blue, purple and red packs.  But, I went ahead and made a video that shows each food – what it looks like when you get it from the packet.  The video is a little lengthy, but I know cat owners like to see the inside of a pouch – especially those with finicky eaters.  Hope it’s helpful =).

You can buy Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack on Chewy.com.

    I feed my cats, (Ragdoll, 1 Maincoon and 2 Persians) Weruva, but I had an internal medicine specialist (vet), recommend Soulistic, which is made by Weruva, but he thinks that is better for the cats. My cats also like that, especially some of the fish and gravy packs. They like having both, depending on what they want at any given time. It is made for Petco, but I get mine from Drs. Foster and Smith. Now I have to get me some colored bowls like your to put the different colored packs in. Very good article. I follow you and your cats all the time.

    • Jenny says:

      thanks, ann! yes, i just bought soulistic last week while we were waiting for weruva to arrive. my cats don’t like soulistic as much as the cats in the kitchen packets – go figure.

    Really a shame that it is such a controversy and why it has to be in the first place just as Patti said. We were feeding our girls Tiki Cat Chicken because of the very limited ingredients and human grade facility that it is made in Thailand. However, about a year or so ago, they all of a sudden decided to add Vitamin K3 which is the synthetic version of Vitamin K that has been linked to cancer. SO, sadly, it is not just the seafood varieties of cat food that it is being added. Just something to watch out for when looking for cat food to add to your kitties’ rotation. I would love to go back to Tiki Cat if only they would remove that additive because otherwise just like, Weruva, it is one of the better cat foods made in a human grade facility.♥♥♥

    • Jenny says:

      I just ordered packets from PetFlow for Weruva Cats in the Kitchen and there were 3 flavors that didn’t have the synthetic Vitamin K. Do cats need Vitamin K?

      • Teresa Reid says:

        Great Jenny! Know Charlie and Chiggy will be so happy. I might order some for my 3 girls too and see how it goes. Have to be really careful with Grace because she is super sensitive to anything new and will get diarrhea for days, so have to add it little by little to see if she tolerates it. Glad to know we have another food option! YAY!!!!

        I’m not a vet just a retired RN, so I can’t speak about what cats’s physiologically need. But, in general, Vitamin K is used by the body for blood clotting. Once when my australian shepherd ate some rat poison left out in the open by a neighbor, the vet gave her an injection of Vitamin K to reverse the hemorrhagic effects of the rat poison. The synthetic form of Vitamin K is K3 and it is toxic to dogs and cats. That said, I don’t know at what levels it is toxic to them. Do know that Vitamins A, D, E, and K are all fat soluble vitamins meaning that they are stored in our fat cells and not washed out of the body like Vitamin C is. So, there is a possibility of it building up, but to what extent, I’m not sure. Hopefully if Vit. K3 is listed as an ingredient in some cat foods, that it is way down on the list meaning that it is in the lowest amount so that toxicity would not happen. Still, for me, just my own decision to avoid cat food containing K3 just in case it could end up being harmful in the years to come.

          thanks, teresa. yes, i know about vitamin k and blood clotting…had to use that on napa. thanks for the tip on “Vitamins A, D, E, and K are all fat soluble vitamins meaning that they are stored in our fat cells and not washed out of the body like Vitamin C is” – interesting. i wonder why they put the vitamin k in there at all! interestingly enough, the descriptions on PetFlow.com said if the packets contained vitamin k or no.

        Thanks for all the great information and better clarification about the synthetic Vitamin K issue, Sweet T!! 🙂 <3

    Great review video Jenny and Chiggy! Love watching Chiggy down all that food and his little pink tongue just licking when he would come up for air! Just made my heart MELT totally! Weruva is one of the better kitty foods. Love the fact that it is made in a human grade plant . When I was doing a little research for a friend about some foods, loved that the Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Chicken one is really low in ash which makes it really good for those kitties who have urinary tract issues. Also, love the fact that it not only looks delicious and smells like we humans could eat it too. I might have to get one of the variety packs and let my girls try several on rotation from their ZiWiPeak because they are only on one kind now and that is probably getting really boring with an occasional Just Juicy Turkey and Chicken flavors. I didn’t see any negatives on the synthetic Vit K just looking at the Chicken one so far. Would like to try them on the Pumpkin for Mari and see if it helps her colitis issue that she has occasionally. Thanks for a wonderful and very informative video Jenny and Chiggy!♥♥♥

      • Teresa Reid says:

        Checked the chicken and pumpkin flavor and didn’t see any Vit K listed on Amazon under their ingredient list. Am I missing it somewhere?

      • Patti Johnson says:

        Hi, Girls!

        From what I understand if the food is made here in the USA and contains any type of seafood ingredient then the Vitamin K must be added. If there is no seadfood in the ingredient list then the more upscale food brands (like Weruva) usually don’t include the Vitamin K . 🙂 <3

        Big hugs & lots of love!!!

        Patti 🙂 <3

      • Patti Johnson says:

        My pleasure, Jenny! I learned about the Vitamin K controversy from Sweet Teresa!! It’s a shame that our entire food chain (human & animals) in this country is so compromised with special interest groups & corruption. The focus of our governement (FDA & USDA) should be the health & well-being of us all and not how they can line their pockets with that special interest money! Sigh… Rant over. Don’t get me started… Things are just out of priority here! 🙂 <3

    Hi Jenny! Two years ago when we first got our beloved seniors, Bobbie & DiMaggio, they arrived with an unmarked container of dry food. It became quite an adventure to identify (Iams Senior) and then expand their culinary horizons as we were pretty sure they had always been on a dry food diet. Bobbie, she of the “Big, Beautiful Bobbie”, and a lovely dainty 18lb girl she is, lol…was thrilled with all the new wet choices she was given but had to be closely monitored because she was a total bulimic! One bite too many and up her whole meal would come. DiMaggio on the other hand refused all attempts to add wet food into his diet until we chanced upon the Weruva Cats In The Kitchen Pumpkin Jack Splash. Oh how he loved it! I truly believe he lasted a full year longer then he would have with his Kidney Disease because of this one product. He never could eat but about a fourth of a pack at a time but would request many times throughout any given day. It was also the only variety that all four of our cats would eat. Being that they were all seniors, I would open a pack, take a spoon and mix it up while in the pack, breaking the larger pieces down so they could all eat comfortably. We’ve now just lost Tiger as well but will always be grateful for the “Jack” as we called it. PS…Bobbie and Savannah still love it and eat it every day.

    Wonderful post, pics & video, Jenny!! This variety pouch pack from Weruva CITK looks very interesting! LURVE the sounds of Chiggy’s high pitched mewing while you prepared the bowls of food. My heart just melts at the sweet, gentle sounds of those mews…soooo cute!!! Thank you for sharing so much great info with us in this one! Very helpful! 🙂 <3

    Variety is truly a smart way to go for everyone, humans and pets, I think! 🙂 <3

    And, I LURVE that you color coordinate the pouches and cans with the bowl colors. Brilliant!! I have no problem with Weruva cat food. We currently feed Miss PSB a rotation of Weruva Cats In The Kitchen canned food (variety pack…she's crazy about that Lamborghini pate) along with I And Love And You canned food (she really enjoys their Whascally Whabbit pate) and American Journey pate (chicken & beef) along with her Blue Buffalo Freedom grain-free dry kibble. (Trying to get her to go 100% wet food but that may never happen but I'm okay with half dry and half wet food during the day for her.) 🙂

    Thanks for your hard work in putting all this together!! Great job!! 🙂 <3

    Big hugs & lots of love!!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle 🙂 <3

      I know -he gets so excited when I grab those packs and then hit them on my leg to get the contents to the bottom, so I can open them without it going everywhere.

      Thank you for sharing what you feed!
