Sponsored Post - Chewy.com and Tiki Cat


This month's sponsored post by Chewy they offered me some canned food by Tiki Cat.  I am quite picky which foods and treats come into my house due to Jack's delicate digestive system.  Looking over the options that were offered to me, then looking at Tiki in particular I found this one flavor I felt comfortable offering to The Crew. The Puka Puka Luau Succulent Chicken in Chicken Consomme (say that ten times fast) has only one plant based ingredient, sunflower seed oil. I wish they had chose something else, but considering this was the only one, I figured I could accept that. The other nice thing about this food is that it is "low carb" so it is good for diabetic cats too.


Um, guys, you need to let me take 'pretty photos' before the eating part..


Yeah, I was lucky to get one good enough shot.. and so to distract them I opened up two cans.. and yes, that went about as you might have expected with five food motivated cats in my house (Twee and Kit are not)


Most The Crew was well pleased with this food. I tried to offer it to Twee, but she got confused and walked away. Kit slept through the entire photo shoot.


Thank you again to Chewy for this blogging opportunity.  I also was recently given the chance to try a new paper based litter and I will be blogging about that pretty soon.

  1. I'm a little embarrassed to say how crazy I get over the Tiki food! Binga (who has been picky lately) loves it too.

  3. It looks good and it is the correct color. I hate when I buy chicken food and it doesn't look like that.

  4. Thanks for the review--I'll have to give that a try.

    Also, love seeing all the kitties! (Well, six of the seven.)

  7. I've got a cat that has the worst digestion problems. I changed from Iams and Science Diet to Blue Buffalo, which worked at first. The bunny wouldn't touch it and the skin allergy cat grew hair and Fatness stopped having the runs and constant barfing. Well, that's changed. To save pennies, they changed the formula. Now the bunny eats it because it's not mostly meat anymore and full of fillers. Calia is scratching bald spots again and Fatness hasn't had a solid poop in 3 years.
    At this point, she barfs all over the house if she has canned food. I've tried mixing it with yogurt and it made no difference.
    I hate to lock her up when everyone else gets a treat but I have no choice. You have any ideas for a super sensitive stomach cat?

    1. a LOT of cats have had dramatic health improvements when they are put on a raw diet. IBD cats do wonderfully on it and it soothes and heals their irritated bowels. Kittens with irritated colons from worms and eating things that cats were never designed to eat because they are starved do miraculously on it. My two boys with crystals do well on it, my diabetic did great on it.

      I know making the leap to raw food is hard to mentally get over, but I bet your cats would do beautifully on it. Try feeding them simple raw muscle meat and see how it goes. it won't be balanced and it is not good long term to do it, but you will get a good feeling if your cats will eat it for one, and if it will help them for another. I've had both cats and kittens go from dripping diarrhea to solid stools in a day or two.. maybe three on the outside.. (I've have a lot of them over the years)

  8. Loved your review on Tiki. You would think it was made in Hawaii by that flavor. LOL Hope to see the poultry one here soon as all the ones I've seen are fish.

  9. We like Tiki Cat but most of the flavors are fish based and we don't get to eat a lot of fish. We have tried this chicken one, and for the most part we all liked it. Thanks for the review!

  10. We have a review for Tiki Cat coming up, too. It's interesting to hear how it went with the Crew. Does Twee get confused by changes in diet?

    1. No. If we put the food on her dinner plate, she's all for it.. but offer it to her directly and she gets confused and walks away. She is a cat of routine..

  11. We thought Tiki Cat only had fish flavors. How cool to know they have chicken ... we'll have to give it a try!

  12. Looks like that food was a hit with most of the family. We don't like shredded food. Wonder if this would be the one to change our minds. It sure sounds nommy. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  13. Hm, three out of three don't like it over here - we think it's a texture issue. We're pate kitties all the way. But we're SO glad they now have a NON fish option!!!
