With Happy Healthy Cat Month happening in September, now is the perfect time to address the ‘cat in the room’—and that’s your feline friend’s diet. I spend a lot of time researching cat food and making sure Alex, Zoe, and Willow have the best diet possible, but I admit that there’s always room for improvement. Between the three of them, they experience two of the three most common cat concerns: picky eating, weight gain, and urinary tract issues. Willow and Zoe are both picky eaters, and Willow is, well, let’s just say she’s not the sleek hunter she used to be.
I’m betting many of you deal with at least one of these issues with your own cat, right? So what can we do to help them? I partnered with Weruva to share a delicious new food that cats love AND that is all about preventing these Big 3 Cat Concerns.
Meet your cat’s new favorite food!
Weruva—a luxurious, natural pet food dubbed “people food for cats” – is launching a full line of gluten, grain, and carrageenan-free cat food in honor of International Cat Day. It’s called B.F.F. OMG! (that stands for Best Feline Friend, Oh My Gravy), and it’s all about preventing these Big 3 Cat Concerns.
If your cat has any of these, you might want to consider changing their diet:
- Is your cat picky? Picky eating is usually a problem with texture, since cats are carnivores whose tongues and teeth are perfectly evolved for meat-eating. It’s easy to see why a cat might dislike something without real shreds of meat—would you eat a steak with the texture of tapioca? Weruva’s food features these shreds of real meat right off the bone, which is why my cat took to it like a duck to water (or a cat to gravy)!
- Got a fat cat? The problem is in the kibble. It’s filled with unnecessary carbs, which are almost impossible for cats to process (they don’t produce amylase, an enzyme which helps humans digest their food). Weruva’s B.F.F. OMG! has no kibble to worry about because it’s 100% real meats in their true form.
- UT-why? Urinary tract issues often stem from dehydration—even if you’re giving your cat plenty of water. In the wild, cats stay hydrated through the food they eat instead of what they drink. Cats are used to ‘eating’ their water—but most wet foods don’t have nearly enough hydration to keep them satisfied. All of the products in Weruva’s B.F.F. OMG! line are over 85% hydration, which satisfies my cat’s hydration needs.
I love Weruva products because they are considered ‘people food for pets.’ The new line of B.F.F. OMG! cans and pouches feature land proteins like boneless and skinless white chicken breast, salmon, beef, duck, lamb and more. All recipes are grain, gluten, and carrageenan free. And if you are a BPA-free home, check out the pouches because they are are BPA-free. Best of all, my cats really love it! Yep, even my picky eaters! Zoe loves the Beef and Chicken Dinner pouch while Willow loves the canned varieties. Alex, well, he eats anything and loves them both.
Health isn’t just for humans, and you’ll be glad you took the time to learn how to feed your four-legged BFF properly. Even better, in the process, you just might find your picky cat’s new favorite food. Learn more about all the flavors at http://www.weruva.com/. You can also explore the whole B.F.F.
