Ziwi Peak is a cat food that I already feed my cats, as indicated on our Best Canned Cat Foods page. So with that information, you can assume correctly that I already like this food and the company that makes it =).
Ziwi Peak is a pet food company out of New Zealand and all of their ingredients are 100% sourced from New Zealand. They use 98% fresh meat – organs, bones and seafood. They use natural can recipes without artificial binders and their foods have no grains, sugars, glycerins, antibiotics or growth hormones.
The lamb meat used in this flavor is free-ranging, grass-fed lamb.
Ziwi Peak is one of the canned cat foods that I want my cats to eat. They aren’t totally opposed to eating it, but they are also not game to devour it. You can see in the product review video below how they react to the Lamb Recipe – they usually eat it when I don’t offer them anything else. But there are foods that they will refuse to eat altogether – so they do like ZiwiPeak enough. I keep it in our rotation – so they are exposed to it and don’t tire of it. I also often have to sprinkle freeze dried chicken powder or the like on top of it to get them to start eating it – but once they are eating, they will continue to eat it.
I like that there is NO CHICKEN in Ziwi Peak foods – this is good for kitties who have chicken allergies – and NEARLY every cat food has chicken of some sort in it.
Ziwi Peak Canned Cat Food Comes in Several Flavors:
- Mackerel & Lamb
- Rabbit & Lamb
I feed my cats the first 3 flavors – we don’t eat the Venison or Beef – but many readers have told me that their kitties prefer the Venison or Beef – so it just depends on your cat.
- 3oz – this is the size I always buy for my cats because they do not always eat the whole thing and there’s always less waste with this size for us.
- 6.5oz – we were sent this size which is 1 ounce bigger than our standard big canned cat food cans – 5.5 oz – in the USA. This size can is too big for our needs – my cats never finish the entire can and if I were to give them half the can and refrigerate the other half, they wouldn’t have it.
