I received the following product(s) free or discounted in the hopes that I would share my honest opinion. All opinions are my own.
The cats and I are part of the Chewy Influencer Program. Chewy is “Where Pet Lovers Shop” and they have a huge selection of products you know and products you’ll want to discover! They sent over some goodies for Pandora and Selune to test.
Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack
The first thing we tried was the Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack Grain-Free Canned Cat Food. This case of 12 cans of food sells for under $14. Known as “people food for pets,” Weruva uses only the best ingredients that are high in protein. The pack contains four cleverly named varieties featuring lamb, salmon, and chicken in cute packaging.
As I’ve mentioned before, we aim to feed our cats primarily in raw food style. The Weruva makes this convenient and gives the cats variety. I will be honest… our first couple cans did not look very appetizing. Even our gluttonous Pandora only nibbled at the contents and I thought we had a dud. Had it not been for another blogger friend that also tried these, I wouldn’t have known that what we received wasn’t how they should look. I wondered if the cans we got had gone bad. My friend reminded me that Chewy has an amazing customer satisfaction program… if you’re not happy, they make it right.
I decided to try some more cans before reaching out and it’s a good thing I did! I suspect they had arrived a bit frozen. The weather here had been bitterly cold and the package had sat outside a bit. The remaining cans were all much better in appearance and a bit more appealing to the cats. Selune is not really a fan yet. She will nibble at it, but the larger pieces in the can do not appeal to here. Pandora will gobble up the softer and smaller bits and then come back in a bit for the larger pieces she left behind. I think it’s a bit of a mixed opinions cat food. They both loved the Chicken Frick ‘A Zee but neither would finish the Kitty Gone Wild. Selune was not a fan of lamb. Weruva Cats in the Kitchen Variety Pack would be nice as a supplement to their regular menu, but not top on their lists.
Wellness CORE Simply Shreds
The second thing we tried was the Wellness CORE Simply Shreds Grain-Free Tuna & Shrimp Wet Cat Food Topper. Chewy sells these in a case of 12 for under $15. A topper can be used to add moisture, extra flavor, and a boost of nutrients to your cat’s dry food. It’s also great as a snack on its own. (FYI: Wellness is the brand we chose to replace our cats’ original favored brand that had been discontinued.)
The contents look and smell like meat because it is. 😉 The human did manage to make a mess every time she opened a package… the broth gets everywhere… but the furry ones were happy to clean up! Both Pandora and Selune devour Wellness CORE Simply Shreds whether served over food or on its own. Even timid Selune will give Pandora a little sass to protect her serving. The price is a bit high for us to use on a daily basis (though competitively priced at Chewy), but it is something that will now be a regular part of Pandora and Selune’s menu. I can’t wait to serve the other varieties to see if they go over as well as the Tuna and Shrimp.
