With International Cat Day happening on August 8, and 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 cat’s diet isn’t “purr”fect.
Sinéad, and especially, my boy Rubeus, can be picky eaters, or ignore their water bowl even when it’s placed right next to 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 is launching a full line of gluten, grain, and carrageenan-FREE cat food in honor of International Cat Day.
Look at this fun Weruva package for my fur babies and Skittles for me!
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 designed 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)!
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.
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. We’ve had UTI and crystals issues with our boy cats and it’s so upsetting to see my fur babies in pain. I know this food will help prevent any more urinary system issues!
I love Weruva products because they are considered “people food for pets.” It really does smell great, just like all the online reviews say!
The new line of B.F.F. OMG! cans and pouches feature 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 love it!
Health isn’t just for humans! I’m glad I took the time to learn how to feed my BFFs properly. Even better, in the process, I found my kitty’s new favorite food.
She especially likes Weruva’s Chicken and Shrimp flavor, which you can read about at Weruva. 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.
