I use both Wellness and Weruva. Weruva is very mindful of the potential of toxicity in higher food chain/larger fish with long life spans. they do filet their fish so the extra phosphorus from ground bone isn't a problem. I have no idea what Wellness does, but for some reason my cats only like the straight chicken or turkey flavors of it. I've tried turkey and salmon and chicken and herring and neither was a big hit.
TikiCat is so much more expensive that I would be surprised if they don't filet theirs as well. I still buy it for splurging occasionally but I could never afford to use it solely.
the addiction plus allergies issues would be the ones i'd have to watch for, but I feed them a lot of different flavors and no one has allergies to it. (so far anyway).
No reactions so far and she loves the Turkey and Salmon flavor, gobbles it right off the little plate I feed it to her on, then again she's liked the majority of the wet food she's been given so I'm satisfied with that.
haha..I am the direct opposite. I like to see chunks of fish or shredded chicken and if ingredient says there are peas/carrots, I like to see it. I dislike pate, all mashed up, cos I dunno what is really added except to believe what is listed in the ingredient list.
I don't feed Tiki Cat because it's just big hunks of fish, bones and all.
I disliked seeing my cat's food looking at me when I opened the can. eeeeyeaugh.
wha??????????? you must have bought the one with sardine filets. now that I think of it, I did buy those once and my cats were kind of like, "yuck. well, it's food, okay, we'll eat it this time." sardines kind of gross me out anyway, but people eat them bones and all. they do with salmon too--I bought a can to put in cat food and all the little vertebrae were in it and I thought it was a mistake. then I saw online that people leave them in and eat them!!! ewwww.
I only buy napili luau. it's chicken mostly and pieces of wild salmon, which is so light you can hardly tell it from the chicken. they also love to eat whatever the plain chicken one is also. it must taste better than the weruva because they act like they want to opt out of the paw lickin' chicken sometimes, but it's a lot more water.
if you eat meat kitty, i'm sure you could eat the tikicat or weruva yourself and it wouldn't hurt you lol. (although i'm not sure it's really cheaper than people food. the tikicat isn't for sure.)
