Hello guys. Let’s veer away from beauty reviews for just a sec and let’s talk about our fur babies and their eating habits, most specifically, their food preferences. You may or you may not have a picky cat at home, but I’m pretty sure you’ve cared for or encountered one in the past. Picky cats can be picky with a lot of things, be it being picky with their toys, their favorite lounge/chill area, or simply with their food. It can be quite a challenge to adapt and figure out what they really need.
When it comes to feeding, most of the time we resort to trial and error in order to find out which particular food these diva eaters will actually like. I know that because I do have a picky diva-ish cat at home. I have tried countless wet cat foods for Frodo (Dodo) since I didn’t want him eating dry solid kibbles all the time (which aren’t good for any cat’s digestion), and he always seems unfazed. His facial reaction is the pretty much the same; stares at the new food, smells it a bit, tastes it a bit, and then leave or go flat on the floor. Sometimes, he would look up with a face saying “next food, please” or “I don’t like it”. Basically, he kept turning up his nose, and I was at my wit’s end. But before I surrendered, I found three very interesting cat foods that aren’t actually like most wet cat foods you’d come to know nowadays. They’re called cat broths, and they’re basically very juicy and brothy cat foods with a little bit of meat. Picky cats tend to like them because they’re so easy to eat and I guess they’re very flavorful as well.
Purina Fancy Feast Broths Classic Collection – This comes in two types, the Classic one which is seen in this review and is a personal favorite of my diva cat, and the other one is the Creamy type which my kitty couldn’t care less. The Classic type comes in several different flavors like Wild Salmon, Tuna Shrimp and Whitefish, Tuna and Vegetable, Chicken and Vegetable and more to mention. My picky cat loves these because there is a lot of broth in each pouch and the broth is not too thick.
Rachael Ray Nutrish Purrfect Broths – This cat broth is grain-free and made of natural and simple ingredients. There is real meat, fish, and real veggies in a silky light broth that is especially easy for picky cats to lick and eat. Also, this doesn’t smell as much compared to most cat broths or most wet cat foods.
Soulistic Wet Cat Food – This cat food may be available exclusively through Petco, but you can also find this at Amazon. This is not only one of the wettest cat foods I’ve ever seen, but this is also one of the smelliest. The smell is so strong especially the fishy ones that you can’t help but try to cover your nose, LOL. However, cats love this, even the smell, and since this has a lot of gravy instead of being brothy, this looks thick and concentrated in flavor. So, expect your kitties to go crazy with this.
Incorporating wet cat foods like these cat broths apart from feeding solid dry foods (kibbles) are the best way to feed and please a picky cat. Broths and most wet cat foods keep our fur babies from having constipation, thus promoting healthy digestion and good urinary health, especially since most cats don’t seem to like drinking lots of water.
Do you have a picky cat too? What do you feed them?
