I have a difficult time “reviewing” cat food – as a consumer, I would want to know the following in a cat food review:
- Is it safe for my cats?
- What does it look like out of the can?
- Do cats like it?
- Does it offer a good nutritional balance for my cat?
- Did the cat’s health change over a year from eating that food? (I’d want a blood test, etc)
Here’s the thing, 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 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).
OK – so now onto the Weruva. We received these variety packs from Chewy.com (as a Chewy influencer) to feature. So this video shows:
- What’s inside each can
- How the variety packs come
- If the cats eat the food
- How I go about remembering/figuring out which flavor in the variety pack the cats went for
- How I organize our cat food shelf in the pantry
What do you feed your cats and why?
We received the Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack Grain-Free Canned Cat Food for review from Chewy.com. Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.
