Review of the Wellness Trufood Chicken, Chickpeas, and Chicken Liver Cat Food, made by Wellness

(You can print this review in landscape mode, if you want a hardcopy)


When the box arrived from Amazon, I realized this shipment must be the one with the new cat food. My kitty loves getting packages, so I told her this one was for her. She came over to investigate, and suddenly became very animated. Apparently, she could smell the food through the shipping box. When I pulled the product bag out, she sniffed it and became ecstatic.

It was clear she wanted this food, but she wanted it so much she blocked my way to where her dishes are. "No waiting for going to the food dish, give it to me now!"

This was a good omen. But I don't feed her anything toxic, such as wheat or corn or the new "poison your pet" darling, the potato. I don't eat these toxins myself, and certainly would not serve them to a trusting animal. I needed to read the package first even though I had read the label online (just making sure). And good discipline is essential for having a well-behaved cat (or dog). I wasn't going to start her eating just anywhere in the house.

Not only did the product bag artwork, label, and text make it clear this is one of the (relatively few) non-toxic cat foods on the market, this is actually a super-food blend. It even contains the powerful anti-carcinogen turmeric.

I feed this cat dry kibble, though she does get moist treats on occasion. She's an indoor cat who likes to go outside. So she does hunt and eat rabbits, chipmunks, birds, and other little critters.

At 7.8 lbs, she's not a big cat but she is a lean, muscular athlete. This is because of her diet; "Great bodies are made in the kitchen" and "You are what you eat."

She whoops all contenders in the territory fights, even those big males that are more than twice her size. And I've seen her make a six-foot vertical leap. One time, she even took a bird that was in mid-flight.

The day the package arrived (but before it arrived), I took her to her vet for her annual exam and vaccinations. He always comments positively on how healthy she is and how clean her teeth are. In this age of a caries epidemic among pets, she doesn't even have tartar. The "secret" is the dry kibble I feed her. Not just the fact it's dry kibble as opposed to the (never feed to your cat) canned junk, but it's very high quality kibble. No sticky grains to start that plaque forming.

(Note to parents of human children, this will work for your kids also. Take them completely off of processed grain, and they won't get cavities).

Now, this cat has been on a salmon-only bend for most of her life. If I give her a kibble that isn't salmon, she sniffs at it and gives me a look of disgust. The problem I have with salmon is it's loaded with heavy metals these days. Humans should not eat it; doing so significantly raises your risk of pancreatic cancer (this fact is confirmed in the medical literature).

So how do you get a salmon-fixated cat to eat something else? I had been pondering this for several months. When I ordered this food, I did so with a big risk that she would probably not eat it.

As I noted, her behavior before even seeing this on her plate (her food goes on tea saucers, not in bowls) was a good omen. To my delight, she dug right in. When she was done, she let me know "you done good" by purring and rubbing the product bag in classic happy cat style (side of body, chin, top of head, side of body). She was letting me know she now had a new favorite food. Considering her fanaticism over her previous favorite food, this was really saying something.

I took a taste for myself. That told me all I needed to know about her decision. This stuff is delicious! Looking again at the label, I noticed the similarities between how I feed myself (all nutrient-dense foods, no junk at all) and the formulation of this food. That's par for what I feed her, but some of the ingredients are new for her (for example, the turmeric). This food also takes a different approach from standard kibble. Instead of one dough extruded to make it, there are two. So you get two distinctly different nuggets in the same mix.

One nugget is the "whole-prey protein bites" and the other is the "living superfood"; as you can guess the latter has all the chia seeds, spinach, tomato pomace, etc., and the former has the chicken, chicken meal, etc.

This even contains green tea extract (helps with lean body composition and is a powerful anti-oxidant) and spearmint extract (not sure of the health benefits, but it's good for one's breath).

Here's the complete list of ingredients: Chicken, Chicken Meal, Chickpeas, Peas, Lentils, Chicken Liver, Chicken Hearts, Flaxseed, Pea Fiber, Tapioca Flour, Tomato Pomace, Chicken Fat (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Natural Flavor, Beets, Coconut Oil, Cranberries, Choline Chloride, Turmeric, Calcium Carbonate, Chia Seeds, Vitamin E Supplement, Taurine, Zinc Proteinate, Spinach, Mixed Tocopherols added to preserve freshness, Broccoli, Ginger, Pumpkin, Parsley, Apples, Blueberries, Kale, Purple Carrots, Niacin, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Thiamine Mononitrate, Vitamin A Supplement, Biotin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Manganese Proteinate, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Inulin, Calcium Iodate, Sodium Selenite, Folic Acid, Dried Lactobacillus plantarum Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus faecium Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus casei Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Enterococcus thermophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus bulgaricus Fermentation Product, Rosemary Extract, Green Tea Extract, Spearmint Extract. This is a naturally preserved product.

We are both very happy with this product. It's what I'm buying her from now on. I realize the price tag is on the high side, but you get what you pay for. And this is well worth paying for.
