Natural Balance L.I.D.

DSC_1196Ms. Purrseidon was upset because our chef didn’t allow her to open the Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Green Pea & Duck Formula Grain-Free Dry Cat Food bag when it arrived. (Purr never managed to get into the bag, but as you can see in the jpg below, right, she tried… It makes noise so she kept getting busted by our chef.) All pre-taste photos of her are well …. awful, because she was really peeved because she wanted it open, not sit next to an off-limits bag, so I, Katsu, tried to fill in and I think I did pretty good with the Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Green Pea & Duck Formula Grain-Free Dry Cat Food review photo.

Do you see Purr’s teeth-marks in the upper right corner?

Natural Balance L.I.D. Limited Ingredient Diets Green Pea & Duck Formula Grain-Free Dry Cat Food is made especially for kitties with sensitivities. While premium-quality duck is the top ingredient, every crunchy bite is fortified with vitamins, minerals and essential taurine to help maintain healthy eyes and heart. Possibly best of all, it is packed with pride in the USA and made with zero grains, artificial flavors, colors or bleached ingredients.

Hill’s Science Diet Adult 7+ Youthful Vitality Salmon & Vegetable Stew Canned Cat Food

DSC_0052At first I didn’t want anything to do with Hill’s Science Diet Adult 7+ Youthful Vitality Salmon & Vegetable Stew Canned Cat Food …. I KNEW this was something Mr. M was supposed to review – HE was over 7 and this food is supposedly for Adult Cats who are over 7. I am only 3, so I did NOT want to review this. Plus, I’m still in mourning over M having lost his battle with cancer and I know I can’t replace him. Of course, the staff debated my decision and went so far as to set up the cans for a photo shoot… (Photos for this was one thing M hadn’t done before he went over the rainbow.)DSC_0047

 Can flew everywhere. It was very gratifying to bowl them over like that. Now, I understand why M used to do that. (I’d never done it, previously, but I was standing in for my dearly departed brofur.)

The chef had to rebuild the pyramid a bunch of times before I agreed to do the shoot and taste it. I mean, I do love to be in front of a camera and M had said it was delicious…. but I made the chef promise that we would  we donate the rest of the case to our local animal shelter, which has senior cats.

DSC_0071Bargain made, I posed, then pretended to eat it, but it did smell yummy, so I tasted it and then I ate nearly all of it…. M was right about it being great food. I loved it, but I’m still not ready for a diet designed for senior cats, so we’re still donating it in M’s honor. I even let Saphera  licks the dish, so she’d know what we were donating – she thought it was wonderful, too, and volunteered to eat the rest, but she’s a senior dog, not a cat and she’s on a special diet.

IF you have a senior cat – over 7 years old – you can keep your cat feeling and acting young with Hill’s Science Diet Adult 7+ Youthful Vitality Salmon & Vegetable Stew Canned Cat Food .This delicious stew recipe is packed with all kinds of youth-preserving goodness. Including powerful antioxidants for a healthy brain, as well as nutrients that support activity and an interest in playing, it’s all made with quality ingredients that are easy to digest. Plus, it’s recommended by veterinarians so you know you’re feeding your cat the very best and it is made in the USA.DSC_0064

DSC_0036I, Purrseidon, LOVE Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack Grain-Free Cat Food Pouches.  (Mom, Jeanne, here – It would be great for a cat who does not drink a lot (which Purr is a lush but Mr. M would had loved this, too) also I suspect this would be easy to hide medicine in, if you have a kitty who needs to take medication.

Stella & Chewy’s Duck Duck Goose Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food

DSC_0006.dStella & Chewy’s Duck Duck Goose Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food  created their  recipe with the belief that pets thrive on the diet they would  naturally eat in the wild. Our chef believes in this, too, but she is not interested in going duck hunting, Fortunately, she is very capable of opening this fine bag. The food is made from sustainably-sourced ingredients and raw protein. In other words, the recipe is based farm-raised duck and goose, organs, and bone plus certified-organic fruits and vegetables—offering the benefits of raw food nutrition with the convenience of freeze-dried preparation and no hunting skills necessary for our chef.DSC_0010.d

To ensure the highest quality, each batch is made with care in the USA in Stella & Chewy’s own kitchen. Since this is freeze-dried, it doesn’t take up much space and it lasts well, so it is excellent in one’s bug-out bag. (We know it isn’t hurricane season – yet – but it’s coming and in other areas, there are hazards like fires and floods, so bug-out bags aren’t just for hurricanes.)  

DSC_0014.dStella & Chewy’s Duck Duck Goose Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food can be served as is for a treat, crumbled over other food OR rehydrate by adding warm water. Please do not cook, heat, or microwave this product. If rehydrating, use cool or warm (never hot) water because Stella & Chewy’s products must remain raw when feeding.

Simple, pristine recipe with limited ingredients and rich in protein, this does NOT contain grains, gluten, fillers, artificial preservatives, or colorings. BTW, pet parents and vets report raw feeding supports an improved appetite, digestion, immune system, teeth and gum health, skin and coat, and can help relieve allergies.DSC_0012.d

Nutro Wild Frontier

DSC_0002Nutro Wild Frontier Real Chicken & Beef, Real Salmon & Trout Recipe  is a yummy pate This 12-twin-pack is for adult cats and it provides high-protein, grain-free meals. The 24 individual trays are purrfectly portioned trays, which are easy to open – no can opener required. We  chose this multipack because Mr. M’s favorite food is chicken and and Purrseidon loves salmon and those are the first ingredients in each of the two recipes….  neither recipe contains grain, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives—just high-quality ingredients and nutrition in every serving. DSC_0008

Nutro Wild Frontier Real Chicken & Beef, Real Salmon & Trout Recipe is made in the United States.DSC_0009

We were surprised how much Mr. M loved the food, particularly since he hasn’t been eating well and has lost some weight. He polished his plate when served both flavors.

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.”
