Product was supplied for my very happy kitties by Weruva
With International Cat Day this past August 8, and Happy Healthy Cat Month in September, now is the perfect time to address the ‘cat in the room’— your feline friend’s diet. I’ll be the first to admit my own cat’s diets aren’t ‘purr’fect. With 4 cats with 4 different body types and dietary needs, it can be a huge struggle to make sure everyone is eating exactly what they need to be. But then I realized I wasn’t alone— many cats experience one of the three most common cat concerns: picky eating, weight gain, and urinary tract issues.
I learned about the Big 3 by partnering with Weruva —a luxurious, natural pet food dubbed “people food for cats” which 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. My fat cat Steve definitely falls in this category.
>> 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 all my cats’ 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, ALL of my cats love it!
Health isn’t just for humans, and I’m glad I took the time to learn how to feed my BFFs properly. Even better, in the process, I found some new favorite foods for all my cats. 3 of the 4 love Weruva’s Chicken and Shrimp in gravy flavor, and my Tulo, who has to avoid chicken and beef loves the Tuna and Salmon pouches, all of which you can read about at http://www.weruva.com/. You can also explore the whole B.F.F. OMG! lineup there, and find a flavor your cat will ‘paw’sitively adore, at Chewy.com
