Hi - Sunshine the Cat here with another Chewy.com review. This time is is something very very IMPORTANT to ME - cat food. Who cares about Kibble? Who cares about Bones? Gimme some MEAT, FISH, or POULTRY and I am happy dancing!
This month I chose Stella & Chewy's Chick Chick Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food. Quite simply I chose it because I absolutely went BONKERS when Noodles and Molly were trying and reviewing the PUP version. Since this food is made for CATS, I thought why not?
The good news is, Stella & Chewy's Chick Chick Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food is made with the same ALL NATURAL and preservative free materials (read - meats, fish, fruit, and so on) that the dog version is made from. . .
- Chicken (Ground with Bone),
- Chicken Liver,
- Chicken Gizzard,
- Pumpkin Seed,
- Hard to pronounce but naturally occurring Potassium Chloride, Sodium Phosphate Monobasic, Choline Chloride, Dried Pediococcus Acidilactici Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium Longum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus Faecium Fermentation Product, Taurine, Tocopherols (Preservative), Zinc Proteinate, Zinc Sulfate, Iron Sulfate, Iron Proteinate, Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin, Copper Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite, Manganese Proteinate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Calcium Iodate, Vitamin B12 Supplement.
So the first night the Human servant hastily made my dinner while I howled that it was TAKING TOO LONG. She happily served it to me KNOWING that I had lapped up MY portion of the dog patties when we tried them out. Hmmmm. I am not sure what it was but I certainly had no desire to eat whatever it was she plopped down in front of me. After a couple of hours I actually nibbled some but the human threw a lot of it away. She tried once more and when I acted the same way, she decided this was NOT going to work. Now I get the food served AS A TOPPER (5-7 of the balls) of Stella & Chewy's Chick Chick Chicken Dinner Freeze-Dried Cat Food as is, not rehydrated. And I love them. I love them almost or MAYBE as much as the Halo Liv-a-Littles in which we all know I want to BATHE.
Moral of the story - never assume a CAT will repeat a behavior or eat the same food TWICE.
It's a fact that I really like this food. It is yummy and good for me. I simply did not want to eat it hydrated.
Furthermore, this is GOOD FOR THE KITTY food as all Stella & Chewy "raw" foods are. They are high in protein which is all-important to a Cat's continued health. It's gluten and grain free because let's face it, neither of those are good for a kitty. Plus there is no added sugar or salt, there is added taurine which aids the eyes and heart. And pumpkin seeds help digestion. All around this is a fine addition to a cat's diet.
It can be pricey as all really really good foods can be. This is basically a raw diet and those are even pricier. But when you add in the VALUE of your pet's continued health due to eating such a quality diet, the cost just might balance out and fit your budget.
I, Sunshine the Cat, encourage you to try Stella and Chewy products as they are indeed THE CAT'S PAJAMAS!
