Stella & Chewy’s Yummy Lickin’ Salmon & Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food

IMG_20170713_234516Stella & Chewy’s Yummy Lickin’ Salmon & Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food is made in the United States and is grain-Free, gluten free.  As you might have figured out by the name, this cat food is chunks of freeze-dried meat. (Though they offer other flavors, we suspect we were given salmon and chicken because Chewy knows my favorite food is salmon and Mr. M loves chicken.) Chewy and Stella believe that pets thrive on  diet they would naturally eat, and they made this with 98% cage-free poultry and wild-caught salmon plus 100% certified-organic fruits and vegetables. I, for one, love vegetables, particularly broccoli, but Mr. M prefers meat.

Prior to rehydrating.

Mr. M and I believe that Stella & Chewy’s Yummy Lickin’ Salmon & Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food would also be a good in your emergency bug-out bag because it is lightweight and easy to rehydrate by adding warm (NOT HOT) water. It is simple: you mix the proper amount of water with the food and let set for a minute then stir … it is much lighter then cans.

After rehydrating.

 As you can see, the chucks turn into a pate, which is easier to eat if you’re a senior cat with dental issues.IMG_20170714_170200IMG_20170713_233506

Did you know that some veterinarians believe that raw feeding is   better for pets and state that pets that eat a natural diet have digestion, teeth, skin/coat and immune system?

Stella & Chewy said, “Please do not cook, heat, or microwave the products. If rehydrating, use cool or warm (never hot) water.”

Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics

received_10213160797323781Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics is Halo’s doing very first Chewy review, so please pardon him for not knowing how to pose for the camera or eat in a tidy manner…. in fact, he wouldn’t eat out of the bowl and insisted on rolling the bowl around in a big circle before taking a bite…received_10213160797203778

These pellets combine essential fiber and nutrients for both adult and juvenile bunnies, but is not intended for growing, active, pregnant or nursing rabbits. (While adult bunnies still need a lot of fiber for proper digestion,but  they don’t need as much as growing rabbits. However, they grow so quickly, that a food for both ages is a major bonus).  Oxbow Essentials Bunny Basics is made in the United State from timothy grass hay and contains optimum protein and calcium-to-phosphorous levels.received_10213160799723841

Note: To transition your rabbit to his new food, gradually replace his current food with the new food over a four-week time period to prevent digestive issues and finicky eating patterns.received_10213160796883770

 

(Purrseidon and Saphera both perked up when the Chewy box arrived and they were both ready and willing to do taste tests … until the bag was opened, then Purr left, but Saphera remained hopeful.)received_10213160798243804

I don’t know why they didn’t mention that it was made in the USA… that is very important to my staff because they seem to trust food that is processed there.

Ehem, Mr. M was supposed to assist me with this review, however Chewy boxes are the BEST (both the actual box & contents) and he was so distracted by the box that he didn’t show up for photos with the product. However, he did come in later and agreed that EVO 95 Grain Free Chicken & Turkey was whisker-licking good. 20170625_153459

Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Salmon Cat Treats

20170511_182733The cats refuse to taste Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Salmon Recipe Freeze-dried Raw Cat Treats, though they  like to bat them through the house. Meanwhile, Saphera tried to steal them to eat, but she is still on a diet AND these are supposed to be reviewed by cats, not a dog. This might not have anything to do with the treats, themselves – the cats were mad about our leaving them behind on a short vacation, so they were not even very photogenic. (And both of they tried to figure out how to get into that suitcase, presumably to stow away.) 20170511_225528Thankfully since we returned home they aren’t as upset. Maybe they learned they can survive or figured you get more with honey.20170511_225923

They remind me of cheeto consistency. 

Merrick Backcountry Grain-Free Real Salmon Recipe Freeze-dried Raw Cat Treats have  the nutritional benefits of salmon in its natural state, which is easily digestible, even for a elderly cat.  This protein-rich treat is good for all ages and doesn’t have grains or gluten. Best of all, they are made in the USA and I always think that assures quality.20170511_182736

Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken

Mr. M and I really like Nulo Freestyle Turkey and Chicken20170410_111602.jpg

While I purrfer clunky foods over  pate, this is delicious and the cans are small, so between the two of us, we eat a little less than one can in a sitting, Since we also refuse to eat non-fresh  food, this 5.5 ounce can is the perfect size. (Their regular size cans are the size of tuna fish cans.)

Our chef said I should mention that her favorite part is it falls easily out of the can so she doesn’t have to scrape it out. She also said that it looked great, but it took us forever to finish a can because we kept coming back for more mouthfuls… Okay, so purhaps that isn’t exactly what she said. Apparently she thinks it is funny because Mr. M chews pate, while I lick it like ice cream.

 We tried Nulo Freestyle Turkey and Chicken, but there are many flavors, all of which are Made in the USA without corn, wheat or soy (grain-free) and good for all life-stages from kitten to old tom, like Mr. M. Nulo uses wholesome cuts of meat (no by-products nor no artificial flavors and colors), however, they do add essential vitamins like D2, B12 and Vitamin E. Nulo’s ad claims their food ‘fuels their inner athlete’, which might be why Mr. M has been leaping and jumping more. I, pursonally, don’t notice a difference, but then I am an athlete, not an old ‘tom in the box’, like M. 20170410_112349.jpg

Taste of the Wild

Mr. M and I really like Taste of the Wild Canyon River Grain-Free Canned Cat Food20170312_222404

I especially love it because I like clunky foods. The cans are small one, so between the two of us, we eat a little over one can in a sitting, Since we also refuse to eat non-fresh  food. this 5.5 ounce  can the perfect size. 

Untitled Mr. M is a bit more picky and for the first day, I got the can all to myself! However, I suspect that his shunning of the canned food had more to do with the fact that he’s recently recovered from a UTI, for which he was getting antibiotics (hidden in wet food). On day two, he joined the test and now, judging by how happy he is when the chef opens a can, I suspect he regrets missing the first one.

Our chef said I should mention that her favorite part is it falls easily out of the can so she doesn’t have to scrape it out.

We tried Taste of the Wild Canyon River Grain-Free Canned Cat Food but they also 20170312_222432offer Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Grain-Free canned cat food, too. Both flavors are made in the USA, and obviously grain-free. Rocky Mountain is made with salmon, chicken liver and roasted venison, which sounds delicious, too. The Wild River we had includes real trout and wood-smoked salmon along with yummy sweet potatoes, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables in a savory gravy. Yum! In fact, this is so good, I almost forgot to tell you that it is super healthy, too. (It lowers carbohydrate intake and increases water intake, both important features in feline nutrition… purrticularly with Mr. M, who has chronic UTI issues and needs to drink extra water to combat this.)
