Weruva and Happy Healthy Cat Month
With Happy Healthy Cat Month in September, now is the perfect time to address the ‘cat in the room’—and that’s your feline friend’s diet. I’ll be the first to admit my own cats’ diets aren’t ‘purr’fect. My kitties can be picky eaters, or they ignore the water bowl even when it’s placed right by their food. I struggled to understand how I could address these issues. But then I realized I wasn’t alone—my cat was just experiencing 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 just launched a full line of gluten, grain, and carrageenan-free cat food in honor of International Cat Day this past August 8th. 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.
Big 3 Cat Concerns
If your cat has any of these, you might want to consider changing their diet:
1. Is your cat picky? Picky eating is usually a problem with texture, since cats are carnivores whose tongues and teeth are perfect 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 cats took to it like a duck to water (or a cat to gravy)!
As you can tell from this picture, Indiana and Boo Boo love it! Indy is used to being spoiled but Boo Boo isn’t. She was a foster kitty until we decided to keep her.
2. 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.
3. 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 cats’ hydration needs.
Why We Love Weruva
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 kitties loves it!
Health isn’t just for humans, and I’m glad I took the time to learn how to feed my BFF properly. You can also explore the whole B.F.F. OMG! lineup on Weruva’s site, and find a flavor your cat will ‘paw’sitively adore, at Chewy.com.
