I am a little late getting my Chewy.com influencer reviews up for this month. Probably had something to do with the box being occupied for a few weeks every time I went to open it. I am a sucker for a cat sitting on a box.. (Yes, Fleurp gets away with way more than she should)
This month I was offered a new food I hadn't heard of before. It is by Whole Earth Farms and it comes in several different varieties. My cats tend to like duck and since I feed chicken pretty exclusively and I like the idea of rotating my proteins, I try to get non-chicken foods whenever I can.
I took a look at the ingredient list and was impressed.
Duck, Chicken Broth, Chicken, Chicken Liver, Dried Egg Product, Natural Flavor, Calcium Carbonate, Organic Dried Alfalfa Meal, Sodium Phosphate, Guar Gum, Agar Gum, Flaxseed, Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Niacin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Thiamine Mononitrate), Potassium Chloride, Salt, Salmon Oil, Choline Chloride, Minerals (Zinc Amino Acid Complex, Iron Amino Acid Complex, Manganese Amino Acid Complex, Copper Amino Acid Complex, Potassium Iodide, Cobalt Glucoheptonate, Sodium Selenite), Locust Bean Gum, Xanthan Gum, Taurine, Yucca Schidigera ExtractNot a fan of flaxseed for cats, but if that is my biggest complaint, sign me up. (While alfalfa is a plant, it gets a pass from me into the 'okay' column because it is green and low glycemic. My cats seem to do better when they have a very small amount of low glycemic greens in their diet vs a zero plant matter diet. The fact that it is organic is a bonus. Considering that the alfalfa meal falls under the 'natural flavor' ingredient, it is fairly obvious there isn't much in there.)
Daito thought the cats were "superfun" to play with.. but how would he like the food?
I just love Parzival's tongue in this last shot. The Crew loved it too. The new kittens love it. I totally wish this came in large 'multi-cat' sizes. 3oz sizes are nice for people with just one cat, but the trend is moving to multi-cat households - which is how we can have more owned cats in the US, but more dog households.
My not yet famous pro/con summary.
Pros: canned food, interesting proteins, not a lot of plant matter, yummy
Cons: flaxseed, they need to make bigger sizes.
Fairly certain I'll be buying some of these for those times we are out of raw for my cats. Opening seven cans at meal time isn't going to be fun, but The Crew will love it.
