My Review on Cat Canned Food

When you go to the grocery store to buy your cat food, what do you base your decision on? Brand? Flavor? Cost? It can be pretty challenging to get the best deal, the best ingredients and flavors your kitty will love.

My Review on Cat Canned Food can help you decide which one is best for your cat! With thousands of pet food brands claiming to be the very best. It can be hard to decide which ones are healthy and nutritious and which ones are not.

Have you ever wondered what ingredients are listed on the back of the cans and what do some of those ingredients mean? Do you ever feel like you’re reading a different language when it comes to ingredient labels and what do the words mean and who regulates the manufacturer? You can find more information in a previous article I wrote: What’s In Your Cats Food? You Won’t Believe What I Discovered!

My Review on Cat Canned Food! – Sammie Taste Test

Signature Pet Care by Lucerne

Flavor: Classic Pate Chicken Dinner

Weight: 5.5 oz.

Cost: $0.60 ($0.11 / Ounce)

Cat Rating: Cover that Hiss up!

Available at: Safeway

Ingredients:

Water sufficient for processing, meat by-products, chicken, poultry by-products, fish, rice flour, and guar gum + vitamins and minerals. Remember, the first 3 ingredients are what the product is mostly made of.

See what AAFCO says about the order of ingredients listed on the label. Here

The nice lady that gave me Sammie brought me a can of cat food and dry food that she and her grandmother had been feeding the kittens But none of my cats would eat it! Always remember:

“You always get what you pay for!”

My furry kids give this canned food a “Cover that Hiss up!” ratings and I do not blame them at all!!

- However -

Ultimately, she turned her nose up at it and walked away and my outside cat wouldn't eat it either!

#2 My Review on Friskies Pate Wet Cat Food

Source

Friskies Pate Wet Cat Food by Nestlé Purina PetCare Company, (a subsidiary of Nestlé Global)

Flavor: Mixed Grill

Weight: (12) 13 oz. Cans

Cost: $13.51 ($1.01/Ounce)

Cat Rating: Wonderful! (meowz)

Available at: Walmart

Ingredients:

Meat by-products, water, poultry by-products, liver, chicken, rice, artificial and natural flavors plus minerals and vitamins are too long to write here. You can view the information here

As a matter of fact, Friskies is what I call “junk food” for my kitty and although she usually gets a different brand she ate it all up! While I was researching for: My Review on Cat Canned Food! Which One Does Sammie Love? I was leary on what I would find and some of the brands turned out to be A-OK!

Consequently, I Have to Be Fair

Consequently, I have to be fair and say that she does like Friskies Pate because I mix it with warm water and Friskies does look more appealing than the first one I reviewed.

You Get What You Pay For!

Consequently, I have to be fair and say that she does like Friskies Pate because I mix it with warm water. She absolutely loves it. Albeit, Friskies does look more appealing than the first one I reviewed.

What I don’t like about Friskies is that its first 3 ingredients are meat by-products, water, poultry by-products Also, what I don’t like is that Friskies claims it’s “made with real chicken, to have all the essential nutrients that support the health and maintenance of an adult cat.

Now for what I do like about this brand is that it comes in 13 oz cans and pouches and it’s available by the case as well! Which is a plus! Moreover, I do love that 99% of Purina cat food is made in the United States! Bravo! Paws Up! Oh yeah!!

Again, Sammie loves Friskies the way I love Big Mac’s and neither one is good for us- Sorry Sammie!

A Little Back Story on Friskies

Meanwhile, Friskies is a well-known brand that has been around since the 1950s. Cats were becoming the country’s most popular pets at the time. Friskies wanted to jump on that bandwagon and make some cat food. The company was initially introduced by the Carnation Company in the 1930s as a dog food brand. Friskies cat food was introduced in the 1950s, it was the first dry pet food product for cats.

“By 1973, Friskies was one of five companies that controlled two-thirds of the $1.75 billion pet food market,” the brand was bought by Nestlé in 1985. for more interesting facts visit here.

This leads me to the conclusion that I would expect more from such a well-known brand and the quality doesn’t back up the name!

What do you think?

My kids (cats) give it a “wonderful” meows rating!

My Review on Cat Canned Food: The Best Brand So Far

And now for the cat canned food that Sammie loves the most and I bet your feline will love it too is…

Turkey and Tote’s New Pate! by Weruva Woot! Woot! Yay!

Flavor: Turkey and Tuna Dinner Variety Pack

Weight: (12) 3.0 oz. Pouch

Cost: $13.77

Cat rating: Purrfect (purr)

Available at: Chewy

Ingredients:

Tuna Broth, Tuna, Turkey, Sardine, Dried Egg, Natural Flavor, Coconut Oil, plus vitamins & minerals.

This product is Tuna based, BPA, grain, gluten & carrageenan FREE and their food recipes are formulated to meet nutritional levels established by the AAFCO!<— see what I mean?

My daughter gave me a small box of this brand for Sammie because her senior cat, Violet (may she rest in peace) didn’t like it at all. And I needed to buy some more for Sammie because she loves it! She purrs and purrs for this awesomely wonderful food!

What I don’t like is that it comes in a pouch and that I can’t get all of the food out of the pouch unless I cut it open and scrape it. And that isn’t going to happen! I mean, who wants to have to do that?

I do like that this product comes in cans and pouches! I will get the cans next time so that none of it will go to waste.

Did You Know?

The company is owned and operated by pet parents David & Stacie Forman and they formulated this cat food to feed their rescue cats healthy clean food.

How is Weruva Different than Other Brands?

The Weruva family lives through the code of conduct: Awesome Happy, Awesome Healthy. The company is owned and operated by pet parents David & Stacie Forman and they formulated this cat food to feed their rescue cats healthy clean food.

Which really wasn’t available at the time. So, the Forman’s decided to create their own pet foods and that is what they did. While the company was founded in 2006. and Weruva is named after their rescue cats, WEbster, RUdi, and VAnessa.

This is awesome! Paws up!

This cat food is made in a human food facility using ingredients and processes used in human food products.

Their base proteins are top quality muscle meat:

  • White breast chicken
  • Whole tuna loins
  • Select cuts of beef

Vegetables and other awesome ingredients:

  • Grilled skipjack
  • Tilapia
  • Red big-eye tuna

Thankfully the ingredients retain their natural look during the processing and you will be able to recognize the textures because this product is really great for your pets. It’s a pretty “natural” meal for your furry children. More information here

Available at Amazon, Chewy, Petco, and Petflow, a limited variety is available at Walmart.

Your food choices for your feline children (pets) are very important. We all want what’s best for them and what will keep them happy, healthy and purrfect!

      Hi Donna this is an informative and reliable hub. A review that is useful to all cat lovers. Canned food sounds the best choice here.

      My six cats TOTALLY agree that Weruva is the absolute best, better tasting than anything else. It’s funny that you refer to Friskies as being like a Big Mac. We call it the McDonalds of cat food! We have three community cats that come by and we even feed them the Weruva. We are very popular with them. Tell Sammie she is gorgeous.

      I appreciate this information, Donna. I have always used dry cat food with my cat partially because I really didn't know much about good canned food. This is a good article.
