Product Review: Nutro Wild Frontier Pate Cat Food

My dog says we put KitCat to work this week and asked that he test out Nutro Wild Frontier Pate for cats. What did our homekitty think? Let's see...




Ingredients:

We got the variety pack of the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate, which included two flavors: chicken recipe, and chicken and duck. It's a grain-free food and there are no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, so that's a plus.

The chicken recipe has chicken, chicken liver, and pork broth as the first ingredients; whereas the turkey has turkey, chicken liver, and pork broth.




Usability:

These trays are marketed as "perfectly portioned" and snap apart so one side can be used for breakfast and the other side for dinner.


I thought this was a great idea, but was skeptical that the sides would snap apart cleanly. I also worried that snap would tear the foil and cause it to peel back on both sides. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The tray snapped apart easily and the foil was easy to tear to separate the two sides (I still do it gingerly, just in case, though). In short, it works and works well! 



We really like the two portions, so the "leftover" side doesn't require refrigeration. It makes mealtime easy and when I have someone watch KitCat it makes mealtime simple for them, too! 

Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A case of 12 twin packs (that's 24 portions) of the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate is currently $17.09 on chewy.com. That gives you 6 packs (12 portions) of the chicken and six of the chicken/duck combo.

Rating:

KitCat really liked the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate. He preferred the chicken recipe (he'll eat duck, but it isn't his favorite). The chicken is available on it's own, too, so it's not necessary to order the variety pack if your kitty has a preference on flavors, too.

Since we got this variety pack, we have reordered the Nutro in the salmon and tuna recipe. KitCat really likes that, too. There's also several other recipes, as well, that we plan to test out. We give the Nutro Wild Frontier products four paws up. We can't wait to try the other flavors!

Product Review: Zignature Kibble for Dogs

My dog says we always like to try out new kibble, and today we're here to share our thoughts on Zignature. An acquaintance of ours uses this brand, so we had heard of it through him, but it wasn't a product line we were familiar with otherwise. So, we were eager to test it out.


Ingredients:

Zignature comes in a variety of flavors such as kangaroo, lamb, whitefish, trout and salmon, pork, and catfish. We went with something traditional that we were fairly confident the dogs would like: turkey.

The first three ingredients in the turkey recipe are turkey, turkey meal, and chickpeas. We prefer foods where meat is the first ingredient, so that line up is a thumbs up for us.

Usability:

This is a medium size kibble. We like that the size is versatile so we could use it for our smaller dogs and medium size one, as well. We took a photo with a pinky finger so you can gauge the size.


Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A 4 pound bag of the Zignature turkey formula is currently $10.99 on chewy.com. A good price for a good food.


Rating:

Since we initially sampled the Zignature, we have already bought a second bag (a 13.5 pound bag!). It was a big hit with all our dogs, and even a dog we babysat also loved it. We're pleased to give this kibble four out of four paws up and have already put this kibble into our regular rotation.

Product Review: Instinct by Nature's Variety Cat Food Trays

My dog says KitCat is excited to share his thoughts with you on Instinct's minced cat food. Made by Nature's Variety, we're sampled the chicken recipe. What it a hit or a miss? Let's see.



Ingredients:

Instinct by Nature's Variety minced cat food chicken recipe has a great ingredient list. The first five ingredients are chicken broth, chicken, chicken liver, egg whites, and ground dried peas. There are also an assortment of fruits and vegetables, including spinach, carrots, artichokes, cranberries, pumpkins, tomato, blueberries, broccoli, cabbage, kale, and parsley.

Usability:

Instinct comes in handy trays with foil tops. This makes feeding super simple.

As for the food itself, we really liked the minced meat. It was smaller than chunks and a good size for KitCat to eat easily. We split up the food and gave half for breakfast and half for dinner. If your cat is a big eater (or doesn't eat kibble as a supplement), giving the full serving would be a very filling meal.



Origin: 

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost: 

On chewy.com, the 3.5 ounce Instinct cat food cups are $21.48 for 12. It's a little pricey, but it's a good quality food, easy to use, and KitCat always licks his plate clean.


Rating:


KitCat really loves this food. He finishes every single bite of it and eats with enthusiasm. That's the best we can ever hope for, so we enthusiastically give this food four out of four paws!

Product Review: Halo Indoor Cat Formula

My dog says KitCat has been busy eating his little heart out this month so he could bring you another review. This time, our favorite feline tested Halo's Indoor Cat formula wet food. This grain-free recipe is one item in a large line of indoor cat food products that Halo offers. So, let's see what the Big K has to say!



Ingredients:

Halo has recently changed a bunch of its foods and remarketed them as "holistic." While some of the recipe changes we're not wild about, the Halo grain free chicken recipe we tried has left the first five ingredients as-is in their latest formulation. They are chicken, chicken liver, chicken broth, natural flavor, and tricalcium phosphate. The chicken is cage free and the fruits and veggies in the recipe are non GMO.

When we opened the first can, we were a little alarmed to see little green spots all over the top. However, after reading the ingredient list we quickly realized that spinach is the sixth ingredient. So, no need for alarm when you see those green specks.




Usability:

The firmness of a wet food is always something we pay special attention to. Foods that are too hard are never well-received by our crew so we prefer foods that are easy to mash up. The Halo Indoor Cat wet food is a medium firmness. When you scoop it out, it holds its shape without falling apart. However, it is very easy to mash up so KitCat can chow down. There is also a little broth/gravy at the bottom so it's nice to scoop that out and add a little to the top so it's extra moist and enticing.



Origin:

Made in the United States.

Cost:

A 12-can case of the 5.5 ounce food is currently $19.95 on Chewy.com. That's the standard cat food can size, not the smaller one.

Rating:

KitCat likes this food. He usually didn't finish it all at once, but he always went back to eat it all. We give Halo Chicken Recipe Grain Free Indoor Cat wet food three out of four paws up!

Product Review: Instinct Raw Boost Mixers

My dog says we love simple ingredient foods. That's why we jumped at the chance to test out Instinct by Nature's Variety Raw Boost Mixers. What did the canine crew think of this dried food topper (they sure liked the smell of the bag!)? Let's get started...


Ingredients:

Although this is not a one ingredient food, it's still a simple ingredient recipe which we like. We tried the turkey flavor and were pleased to learn it is cage free turkey and the veggies and fruits are non GMO. There is no grain, potato, corn, wheat, soy, by-product meal, or artificial colors or preservatives, either.

We normally list the first five ingredients, but we're going to list them all this time since we think it's useful. The mixer includes turkey, turkey liver, pumpkin seeds, turkey heart, carrots, apples, butternut squash, ground flaxseed, montmorillonite clay, dried kelp, broccoli, mixed tocopherols, apple cider vinegar, salmon oil, rosemary extract, blueberries, and dried chicory root.

The mixers also come in other varieties including chicken, beef, and lamb.


Usability:

Since this is a dry nugget, it's very easy to use and takes no time to prepare. The mixer can be used to top kibble, wet food, and can even be used as a treat. The pieces are slightly different sizes, but are generally about the size of the first section of your pinky finger. Small dogs can also eat the pieces just fine since they're easy to chew and not hard like some other dried food products we've tried.


Origin:

Made in the United States.

Cost:

At chewy.com, the 6 ounce bag of The Instinct by Nature's Variety Raw Boost Mixers is currently $10.79 and the 14 ounce is $25.19. This price is in line with most freeze dried foods which always cost more than standard fare.

Rating:

The dogs just love this mixer! We used it as a topper for kibble and also as a treat. It's a solid four paws up, for sure!

Product Review: Wellness Core Simply Shreds for Cats

My dogs says today we're here to tell you about kitty food! Specially, Wellness Core Simply Shreds. Is it a hit or miss with our resident feline, KitCat? We tested it and here are our results.



Ingredients:

We're big fans of simple ingredient lists and this variety of Wellness Core is exactly what we like to see. Four ingredients. Total. No weird names you can't pronounce or don't know what they heck they are. It is simply tuna, fish broth, water sufficient for processing, and shrimp.

That makes us super happy. We know exactly what KitCat is eating, and it's ingredients we feel good about. No fillers, grains, or starches; just solid protein with Omega-3 fatty acids for good health.

Usability:

This variety of food, the Simply Shreds, comes in pouches. It's a nice single-size serving and comes with ample broth. It's not a stew type broth, more of a clear one that just keeps everything moist.


On the broth/pouch note, we only have one complaint. If you don't manage to tear off the top of the pouch all the way the first time, and have to go back to pull the rest of it off, you may end up with a mess. If the pouch is partially open and you go to put the top off the rest of the way, there's a strong likelihood you'll squeeze the pouch just enough to have fish broth and water come out the top and start dripping down your hand and arm. So word to the wise, pay attention when you tear so you pull the top off all the way across the pouch.


The Simply Shreds can be used as a topper for kibble or canned food, a side dish to your cat's regular meal, or as a snack all on it's own. We chose to use it as a snack so there weren't other tastes mixing in and KitCat could sample the product without distraction. He lapped up all the liquid enthusiastically and then I looked away for a minute. When I looked back, all the meat was gone. And I mean gone. No evidence there had been anything in the dish.


In regard to packaging, you can either open the box at the top or tear diagonally along the perforated lines so it creates a retail-like holder for the pouches. It's actually nice to have a choice so you can store the food in a way that makes the most sense for you and your pantry/kitchen.


Origin:

United States of America

Cost:

The current cost on Chewy for the Wellness Core Simply Shreds is $14.49 for a 12-pouch box, each 1.75 ounces of food.  Although this costs a little more than regular food, it's a high quality product and falls into the "you get what you pay for" category.

Rating:



As you can probably already tell, KitCat LOVED this food. L. O. V. E. D. (Yes, he's hard to see in the photo above because black cats don't photograph well, but you can absolutely see his tongue lapping up the broth!) We felt like we were doing something special for him when we saw how much be enjoyed this food. It was like he thought he was getting a special reward for being a wonderful kitty.

Our rating? Well, our top rating is four paws but that doesn't seem to be enough. So, let's just say we give this a four-plus-plus-plus. This is absolutely a product we'll be getting again and again.

Product Review: Nutro Wild Frontier Grain-Free Kibble

My dog says the pups here have been busy taste testing another fine product for you all. This time we checked out Nutro's Wild Frontier line of grain-free kibble in salmon flavor. Was it a hit? Let's see...


Ingredients:

This high protein food is free of grains, wheat, soy protein, corn gluten meal, and artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. We prefer grain-free foods like this because they are generally better for your dog and there's a decreased chance of food allergies or sensitivities.

The top ingredients in this formula are salmon, chicken meal, chickpeas, fish meal, dried potatoes, and peas. As always, we like when the first ingredient is real meat (and so do the pups!). And bonus points that the ingredients are non GMO.

Usability:

The only thing that's of note in the usability area is the bag. It says easy pour spout, inferring that when you open the bag you'll have an opening to pour the kibble from. If that's supposed to be the case, it wasn't clear how it worked. We cut it and even looked at the bag's seams to figure out how it worked, but we couldn't figure out how it was supposed to work.

The kibble itself is a good size; appropriate for smaller or larger dogs.

Origin:

Made in the good old U.S. of A. Something noteworthy here is that this product is produced in the manufacturer's own facility so that should help ensure added safety and quality control.

Cost:

A 4-lb bag of the Nutro Wild Frontier in salmon flavor is $17.09. The next size up is 24-lbs and is $52.19. As always on chewy.com, you get a discount when you sign up for auto shipping.

Rating:

The pups ate this food, however it wasn't necessarily a hit or a miss. The dogs didn't turn their noses up at it, but they didn't eat it enthusiastically either. That said, we'll give the Nutro salmon three paws up. It does come in other flavors (including chicken, lamb, and also venison meal), so we'll give those a whirl and see if those are a better match for the sophisticated palates over here at taste test headquarters.

Product Review: Halo Vegan Canned Food for Dogs

My dog says the pups have taste tested one of Halo's canned food for dogs and we're here to share the results. See what the canine crew has to say about Halo Vegan Garden Medley.



Ingredients:

As can be seen from the name, Vegan Medley is a meat-free food. The first three ingredients are vegetable broth, chickpeas, and potatoes. There's also carrots, spinach, peas, and dandelion greens. There is no animal protein, animal fat, or dairy in this recipe. Spinach, olive oil, and flaxseed provide essential fatty acids and pea protein helps to build strong muscles.

Usability:

This is a slightly grainy pate. I suspect some of that "grainyness" is from the chopped up chickpeas. It's also sticky. If you use a spoon to scoop it out, the food sticks to the utensil and you have to wipe it off with your finger. It won't come off on its own, even when you tap the spoon on the bowl pretty hard.

The most noteworthy thing about Vegan Medley is the smell. It reminds me of Thanksgiving stuffing. Maybe it's the dried rosemary? I'm not sure, but It made me want stuffing that's for sure.

Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A 12-can case of the Halo Vegan Medley currently sells for $41.18 on Chewy.com, so it's three bucks and change per 13 ounce can. A discount kicks in if you auto-ship.

Rating:

We've tried the Vegan Medley kibble in the past and the dogs really liked it. That's why we were eager to try this recipe in canned. However, it was met with a mediocre response. Half of the crew ate it, and half wouldn't. It kind of felt like feeding a kid brussel sprouts. You know it's good for them, so you want them to eat it. But they're not doing cartwheels when you serve it up.

It's a high quality food and when using it, it's nice not to have to worry about food safety issues for the meat. That said, we give this canned food 2.5 paws.

Product Review: Blue Buffalo Wilderness Pate for Cats

My dog says today we're eager to share our thoughts on one of Blue Buffalo's products for cats. KitCat has his tastebuds at the ready, so let's get started.


Ingredients:

Blue Buffalo offers a pate, variety pack in three flavors: salmon, chicken, and duck. Each are grain-free and have solid ingredient lists, with meat as the first ingredient.

The duck has duck, turkey broth, and chicken liver. The chicken has chicken, chicken broth, and chicken liver. And the salmon has salmon, fish broth, and chicken liver. Each recipe also contains potatoes, but no corn, wheat, or soy. There are no chicken or poultry by-product meals in any of these foods.


Usability:

This is a nice, soft pate with an enticing broth. It's easy to eat and smells really enticing. It's similar to a kitten food in that has lots of moisture. Texture is ideal for kittens, adults, or seniors.

Origin:

Made in the United States.

Cost:

The variety pack comes in a case of 12 cans, four of each variety. It's the "kitten size" cans, three ounces. The current cost for the Blue Buffalo at Chewy.com is $12.99, just a little over a buck a can, so that's a pretty competitive price for a high quality food. It's a little less with auto-ship.


Rating:

This is the second Blue Buffalo product KitCat has reviewed and he's really liked both of them (see his previous review on Blue Buffalo Tasty Toppers). KitCat ate with enthusiasm and he finished everything in his dish. This was a great food and it was clear he really liked it. How many paws do we give the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Pate Variety Pack? Four! Four paws up for sure.

Product Review: Evo 95 Cat Food

My dog says KitCat is back at it! He's been tasting food far and wide to give you his take. Today, we'll be giving you the scoop on one of the many products from Evo.

Billed as an "ancestral diet" that is similar to what cats eat in wild, Evo is rich in protein, but void of grains and potatoes, It's formulated to maintain lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight. There's many varieties, but we tried the Evo 95 Grain-Free Chicken and Turkey Recipe in Gravy.



Ingredients:

The Evo 95 line is food that is 95% animal protein. The first six ingredients in this particular flavor are chicken, water, turkey, beef liver, chicken liver, and fish oil. The rest is pretty much a variety of vitamins and minerals. Normally we don't like to see water so high up on the ingredient list, but I suspect it's there to create the gravy.


Usability:

To call this flavor a food in gravy is misleading (at least it misled me). Something in gravy usually leads me to believe the food is chunks in gravy. However this is a pate. When you scoop it out, you'll see gravy at the bottom of the can, though. The can is full to the top with pate; the gravy at the bottom really doesn't give you less food in the can.



Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A case of 24, 5.5 ounce cans is a little over $36 on chewy.com (you save about two bucks if you autoship).



Rating: 

KitCat likes this food alot. He eats it right away and finishes everything in his bowl. How many paws, do you ask? Make it four. Four. Paws. Up.

Product Review: Ziwi Peak Canned Cat Food

My dog says today we're going to share our experience with Ziwi Peak food for cats. KitCat was happy to step up as our taste tester, so let's get this party started.

Ziwi Peak Beef Recipe canned food for cats is a brand from New Zealand and boasts a high quality line of foods. The meat in their foods is from local, range-free farms in New Zealand and each recipe is made in small batches.


Product Review: American Journey Salmon Oil Supplement for Dogs

My dog says we're excited to share our experience this month as we tested out American Journey Salmon Oil. This supplement for dogs is said to give your pet's skin, coat, and immune system some TLC, as well as keep his joints healthy. We put this elixir to the test on our itchy dog who has battled skin issues since we've had him.

18 ounces may not sound like a lot, but this is a big bottle!

Product Review: Halo Chicken Recipe Small Breed Kibble

My dogs says today we're eager to share with you our review of Halo's kibble for small and tiny dogs. Spot's Stew Wholesome Chicken Recipe Toy and Small Breed Dry Dog Food is Halo's only kibble for tiny pups (although all their kibble products are suited for small dogs, these kibble pieces are extra petite!). What did the hounds of our home think about these little bits of kibblosity? Read on, friends. Read on.

Halo's small breed kibble is currently available in just one flavor: chicken.

Product Review: Nulo Freestyle Grain Free Canned Cat Food

My dog says today we're going to give you the skinny on high-end cat food Nulo Freestyle. Our own resident kitty cat has stepped up to test out Nulo's Turkey and Chicken Grain-Free canned cat food. Thanks, KitCat!

Nulo's grain free cat foods come in six flavors.

Ingredients:

Nulo is a high-quality food with no meat by-products and it's also free of artificial colors, flavors, and carrageenan. There are six, grain-free varieties of the canned food; that means no corn, soy, or wheat. The top five ingredients in the flavor we tested are impressive: turkey, chicken, turkey liver, turkey broth, and tuna. It's a top notch food when it comes to quality.

Usability:

This food is labeled as suitable for adult cats or kittens. It's a nice pate; but not super moist like ordinary kitten food, though. It's a little hard, so you'll definitely want to mash it up a little so it's easier for your kitty to bite into. The appearance is standard, as is the smell. Nothing noteworthy on those fronts.

Nulo's pate is firm, but easy to mash up.

Origin:

This food is made in the United States. Although our food safety system in America is far from perfect, we always prefer food made in the U.S. or Canada.

Cost:

The current cost for a 24-can case of the 5.5 ounce size (that's the standard adult size can) is currently around $40. That's $1.69 per can. When it comes to quality pet foods, we think that's a pretty fair price. Probably moreso it you're a single cat family.

KitCat says no other cats in the house equals more of everything for him!

Rating:

We give the Nulo Freestyle Turkey and Chicken flavor three out of four paws. It's a good food and has all the right things going for it, but KitCat wasn't enthusiastic about it. He walks away from the food before he finishes it and it's not like him to leave food behind. He does, however, go back eventually to finish it off.

We'll try a different flavor next time to see if King KitCat likes it better. Maybe he's not a turkey guy.

Product Review: Nutro Grain Free Turkey & Potato Canned Dog Food

My dog says we'll be reviewing Nutro Grain-Free Farm Raised Turkey and Potato Recipe canned dog food today. Please note that it looks as though this line has undergone some rebranding, so the label you see in our photos is different than what you might see online. It is, however, the same product and the same ingredients.

This is the old label.
The new label indicates this food is a Limited Ingredient Diet.

Ingredients:

This variety of Nutro is a grain-free food, so there's no corn gluten meal, wheat, or soy. That's good news for dogs with allergies or food sensitivities.

The variety is marketed as being good for your dog's skin and coat.

The first five ingredients are: turkey, turkey broth, whole potatoes, turkey liver, and dried potatoes. The turkey used in this formula is U.S. farm-raised and the food is void of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Lastly, this food is formulated with optimal levels of omega-6 fatty acid and zinc, so it's touted as giving your dog healthy skin and a shiny coat.

Usability:

This loaf-style food is a bulkier version of a pate. It's not super smooth; it has a little more heft to it due to the whole potatoes. If your dog likes to bite into something more robust than a traditional pate, this might be a good option for him.

This loaf isn't chunky, but it's not creamy either. 

Cost:

When you buy from Chewy, this food is a little more than $2 for each 12.5 ounce can (when bought in a case of 12).

Origin:

Made in the United States

Rating:

We tried this food on a few different dogs and most ate it. One was indifferent to it and wouldn't eat it as a meal, but would in smaller quantities when I gave it as a snack. This is a good quality canned food, but not every food is going to be a hit with every dog. We certainly think it's worth a try to see what your dog thinks.

We give this food three out of four paws.

Product Review: Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Formula for Cats

My dog says we're having a great time celebrating St. Patrick's Day this week! We're all about the green, so we chose a cat food with a green label to taste test for you this month: Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Feline Formula in Gravy for cats! Is this product all that it's green label purports to be? Let's see!


Ingredients:

We always choose high quality foods to share with you and this one is no different. The first several ingredients in this canned cat food are salmon, fish broth, chicken broth, chicken liver, and dried egg whites. Right there it pretty much sounds like some fancy dish you'd make for human company coming over for a special occasion, huh? There's also smoked salmon, roasted venison, ocean fish, peas, tomatoes, blueberries, and raspberries.

This grain-free food is formulated to lower carb intake and increase water intake. Both really good things for the cat in your life.

Oh, and if your cat prefers a different taste, the Taste of the Wild canned food also comes in Canyon River flavor that contains trout, fish broth, vegetable broth, ocean fish, smoked salmon, carrots, and sweet potatoes.

Usability:

This is a chunky food. Although it's labelled as a gravy product, it doesn't have the usual watery gravy you generally see. It's more like a thick sauce that keeps the chunks moist, but it's nothing your cat would lap up. The food is essentially little cubes of meat and they're cut into sizes just perfect for your kitty's adorable little mouth.



We were all ready to give the Taste of the Wild to KitCat to try, but this duck in St. Patrick's Day garb horned in for a sample. We think she wandered away from a parade or pageant.

No duck in this food, right?
No no, Miss Duck! Please enjoy with confidence! 
You don't seriously expect me to try this
after that prissy little duck put her beak in it, do you? 

Origin:

Made in the U.S.A. (Sorry, but we couldn't find a food from Ireland to review for you this month. The leprechauns must have blocked it all at the border.)

Cost:

The size you see sampled here is the 3 ounce can (we call it 3 leaf clover size), which is sold in a 24-can case for $16.58 on Chewy. They also have a 5.5 ounce can that sells for $30.96 for 24 cans.

Oh my! A leprechaun chased away the duck and laid claim to these cans.
Next best thing to a pot o' gold, don't cha' know!


Rating:

As is usually the case, when we give KitCat a food that comes in chunks, he likes to take it out one piece at a time, set it on the floor, eat it, and then go back for another chunk. It's quite ritualistic. That said, he really liked the Rocky Mountain formula and it was a hearty meal. Overall, a scrumptious dish to celebrate St, Patrick's Day (second only to corned beef and cabbage)!

Where's my shamrock garnish?
Fine, I'll try it anyway but I'm lodging a complaint with the appropriate authorities. 

We give Taste of the Wild canned food in Rocky Mountain flavor two webbed feet up (that would normally be four paws, but the duck insisted we use her rating system this time!).

Thanks for reading and may there be a pot of gold at the end of your rainbow this holiday, my friends! Until next time...QUACK!

Product Review: Blue Buffalo Tasty Toppers for Cats

My dogs says today KitCat is here to share his feedback on Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers Wild Cuts for cats. We were looking for a special St. Patrick's Day treat especially for our "top" cat, so a "topper" seemed just like the festive thing we needed to celebrate with the leprechauns. KitCat has given us all his notes, so let's get started.

A good treat is like a four leaf clover; hard to find and lucky to have.


Ingredients:

We tested out the Tasty Chicken Morsels in Savory Gravy flavor for breakfast (top to the morning' to you!). The first five ingredients in the Tasty Toppers are chicken, chicken broth, water, chicken liver, and dried egg product. I have to wonder why "product" is after dried egg, but aside from that we're pretty pleased with these ingredients. It's a grain-free product, so paws up for that, plus there are no by-products, corn, soy, wheat, or artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

The Tasty Toppers also come in duck flavor and also salmon. These have the same ingredients as the chicken with the exception of the first ingredient, being duck and salmon, respectively.

We like our toppers with a side of shamrocks.


Usability:

Tasty Toppers are meant to be a topper for your cat's usual food (suitable to added on top of kibble or wet food), but it can also be used as a special treat. Luckily, we have some great cat foods in our rotation so we don't ever need to bribe KitCat to eat his food. So, we opted to use the Tasty Toppers as an evening snack.

Each pouch is three ounces so it could easily be used for two rounds of treats. You could certainly use it all at once if you prefer, but it's actually a good amount of food that could be stretched depending on your cat's needs. Although this food is in gravy, there is plenty of meat chunks in it. There's enough sauce to keep it moist and to give your kitty something yummy to lick up. Despite the gravy, though, this food is chock full of chicken.

Keep calm and eat with the leprechauns!

Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

The Blue Buffalo Wilderness Tasty Toppers is sold in a 24-pouch case case from Chewy and currently sells for $27.43 (the duck and salmon are just a little bit more). The price goes down by almost a buck fifty if you autoship it so it gets sent to you automatically.

KitCat's Irish eyes are smiling and his lrish tongue is licking!

Rating:

Looks like KitCat has found his pot gold at the end of the rainbow; he took to the Tasty Toppers right away! We'll be keeping this on hand for KitCat to enjoy long after St. Patrick's Day has passed. We give this Blue Buffalo product four out of four clovers!

Erin go bragh, my friends! May the luck of the Irish be with you this, and every, St. Patrick's Day!
