Sunshine the Cat was very very excited when the January newsletter from Chewy.com arrived. She was given the GO-AHEAD to pick whatever she wanted to review and the mommies of the house would NOT interfere. She perused the list over and over weighing the benefits and value of each choice. Finally she did something we never never thought she would do - she picked
Tiki Cat King Kamehameha Luau Variety Pack Grain-Free Canned Cat Food, 2.8-oz, case of 12.
It wasn't so much that she chose Tiki Cat. She has tried a couple of their variety packs and generally speaking, she likes them, No, it was more the KIND of fish this selection offered - it was like nothing she ever tried before.
- Hawaiian Grill - Flaked Ahi Tuna, Tuna Consommé
- Lanai Luau - Flaked Ahi Tuna, Tuna Consommé, Flaked Crab surimi (Sea Bream, Crab broth)
- Tahitian Grill - Sardine Cutlets, Sardine Consommé
- Molokai Luau - Flaked Ahi Tuna, Tuna Consommé, Calamari, Brown Rice
- Honolulu Luau - Flaked Ahi Tuna, Tuna Consommé, Flaked Crab surimi (Sea Bream, Crab broth), Brown Rice
- Waimea Luau - Flaked Ahi Tuna, Tuna Consommé, Prawns, Brown Rice
- Waikiki Luau - Flaked Ahi Tuna, Tuna Consommé, Flaked Tilapia, Brown Rice
- Makaha Luau - Mackerel Cutlets, Sardines Cutlets, Calamari Consommé, Calamari
- Bora Bora Luau - Sardine Cutlets, Lobster Consommé
I mean - Calamari? Lobster? Sardines? Mackerel? This is the definitely food worthy of Kamehameha and Liliuokalani themselves! Sunshine the Cat has had Chicken of the Sea before. . . period. So this was otherworldly for her and that, she said, is why she chose to try and review it. An OLD CAT can learn new things, she said, and she was going to prove it.

Tiki Cat King Kamehameha Luau Variety, according to Sunshine the Cat, lived up to all of the hype AND THEN SOME. It was tasty enough to make her want to BEG and she said the high protein and low carb formula made her feel as chipper as a kitten again.
There was one formula that kinda sorta gave her the . . . um . . . oh . . . loose bowels . . . the Hawaiian Grill. Odd since it was THE MOST BASIC of all of the formulas. But it was just the ONE FOOD and once it was gone the problem was as well.
Over all we at Casa de Noodles give this variety pack a 10 PAWS UP (we took two off for the poopy-runs) for flavor and quality. It is truly food fit for ALI'I.
