What contains no grains, carrageenan, meat by-products, corn, wheat, soy or artificial preservatives, colors or flavoring? BUNNIES! but do you know what I don't like to feed my cats? BUNNIES!
When Chewy.com offered some Nulo canned food as part of their influencer program this month, I thought I would give it a try. I have heard of Nulo before, and even spent a fair amount of time talking to the Nulo rep at the Global Pet Expo I went to earlier this year.
I will say while I'm not thrilled about a few things that Nulo does, such as there is fish, pumpkin, and tomato in every grain free pate food and that they make and promote dry food, there are a few things I am very impressed that Nulo was founded by people who wanted to make a difference in the obesity and diabetic epidemic that was working through the dog and cat populations. Nulo formulates their foods to be lower in carbs (although I REALLY wish their carb counts were listed right on their website and they didn't make you do the math to figure it out)
But all the nutrition in the world doesn't mean much if your kitty won't eat it.. so what did The Crew think of the food?
I chose the Beef & Lamb flavor because lamb is a traditional spring meal and it was the only other flavor besides poultry that wasn't seafood based. I don't mind giving my cats seafood despite having two that blocked with crystals because it isn't a main source in their diet and I believe in rotating proteins, but since there is whitefish in this as well, they are getting three forms of protein, none of which are in their usual fare.
The Crew was so interested in trying out this food that we had to open a decoy can and put it down in a far part of the house to get these photos.. Here is what the food looks like when it is taken out of the can.
but the question is.. do they want food or do they want bunnies??
Looks like the food is the winner. There would have been a few more faces around that plate if they weren't in the other room cleaning off the decoy plate. If you would like to try Nulo out, Chewy.com sells it for $40.52 per case of 24 cans with free shipping available if you spend $49
