New Cats in the Kitchen and BFF foods

Just wanted to let everyone know that Weruva has released some new products...

Cats in the Kitchen now comes in 3oz and 6 oz cans, 10 new formulas that are different (although some seem quite similar) than the current pouches. The claim to fame for these is no grain, no starch and no carrageenan. Only carb sources are the thickening agents...locust bean gum and xanthan gum. 3 of the 10 flavors are fish free (but do contain fish oil); Chicken Frick a Zee (plain chicken), Fowl Ball (chicken & turkey) and Double Dip (chicken & beef). It's not all white meat chicken like Weruva, but the price is also lower.

BFF has 6 new flavors in pouches. Still all tuna based, but these add a second protein source; turkey, lamb, salmon, beef, chicken, duck.

They been available to ship to stores the last couple weeks so you should start seeing them on the shelves. I haven't tried it yet, I have the 3 CITK fish free flavors in my tote bag to take home tonight. Will let you know what the crew thinks...

My kitten loves BFF. His favorite seems to be the chicken and tuna 4eva

I wonder what the ratios are of tuna to the second protein. Do any have tuna NOT as the first protein?

BFF is his once a week food. I'd like to let him have it more often, but the amount of fish concerns me.

Thanks for the update on the new options!

No idea of the ratio of tuna to other proteins...they all start with tuna, so that's definitely the larger percentage. A couple things about their fish though...they use skipjack tuna, so it's a smaller fish and doesn't collect the level of mercury that the large tuna ends up with over it's lifetime. They also don't grind their fish, they filet the meat off the bone, so the ash content is not as high as other fish formulas. So if you're going to feed fish, this is a good choice. I can't feed fish...it give Holly diarrhea, but if I was going to the Weruva product would be my first choice.
