Wet Cat Food 101: The Top 10 Reviews


When they are wild and free, cats get all the moisture they need from the animals they hunt and kill, but unless your cat is a hunter, chances are it relies on you for all of its water and food. A 100% dry food diet is very dangerous for your feline friend, since there won’t be sufficient amounts of water from the kibble. Wet cat food ensures that your kitty will be safe, sound, and hydrated! This is why our staff rounded up their kitties and we went forth and tested out some products!

What to look for:

Organic: Ideally, wet cat food should be grain free, this means no barley, rice, or any similar grains. While these are considered very healthy in a human diet, cats digestive tracts are simply less capable of digesting unnecessary carbs.

Avoid fish-based foods: Most cats will LOVE fish-based wet cat food, but that doesn’t mean it’s good for them! Much of the fish that goes into the food contains heavy metals and similar toxins. Additionally, fish-based foods contain whole fish, bones and insides, which can increase phosphorous levels of the food, making it a big problem for cats with kidney disease. Some cats can also develop urinary tract problems. So, either use fish-based wet cat food sparingly or throw it out of your cat’s diet altogether!

This selection is made with high-quality protein sources and ingredients. It contains small bites, is slow-cooked and served in a thick gourmet gravy.

Pros:

  • A lot of gravy
  • Cats love it
  • Convenient flip top can make feeding quick and easy
  • Quality ingredients

Cons:

  • Small cans, not good for for multi-cat households

Conclusion: If you are the happy owner of a gravy loving cat, give this a try. My picky cat scarfed this food down, eating the entire can at one sitting. This box comes with 3 different flavors; beef, chicken, and turkey. Nice variety so cats don’t get bored with the food. There’s a lot more gravy than actual meat, but my little monster didn’t complain. Overall, I highly recommend this especially if your cat is a fussy eater.

This box comes with three different flavors. It’s natural & organic. It contains shreds/fillets, served in a thick gravy. Work well with kitties who have weak kidneys.

Pros:

  • A lot of gravy
  • Cats love it
  • A variety of flavors
  • Quality ingredients

Cons:

  • Dented cans (but this is if I was nitpicking)

Conclusion: If your cat is a picky eater, then 3 flavors are enough variety to keep him interested. It is a bit smelly but I think that is the reason why my cats like it so much. Overall I would recommend this, especially if you have a gravy loving cat, but I hope the company fixes the issue with it dented cans.

This product is very good for sensitive cats since the nutritional values really aim towards balancing everything in your cat’s body. The only thing is that you need to be on the lookout for is the price, since it goes up and down from time to time!

Each meal of Medleys fancy feast is prepared with real chicken, tuna or turkey plus with added garden greens it offers a complete and very well balanced and nutritious meal for your cat.

Pros

  • Made with real meat
  • Balanced mix of high protein, low fat and carbs
  • Can be mixed with medicine and cats never know the difference

Cons

  • Artificial flavor

Conclusion: With all natural ingredients this is actually a very good buy. My cat loved it and took to it almost immediately. Only thing is that it has artificial flavoring and some very picky cats (like that of my SO) won’t go near it, or only finish half a cat if it’s hungry.

6. Purina Pro Plan Focus Canned Cat Food, 3-Ounce Cans, Pack of 24

Getting 24 cans from a trusted manufacturer at this price sounds amazing! Plus there are many combinations taste-wise (chicken, beef, salmon, turkey, whitefish) and health-wise (urinary tract health, metabolism formula, weight management, indoor care).

Pros:

  • A lot of taste choices
  • Bolsters your cat’s immune and digestive system
  • Helps with crystals in the urinary tract
  • Price is great

Cons:

  • Cats don’t like all the taste choices
  • Contains meat by-products
  • Contains wheat gluten and artificial flavors

Conclusion: I bought these cans because I noticed my cat was a bit down in energy. The price was fair, so I went for it. She loved only the beef & chicken can. Everything else (ocean whitefish, salmon and rice, chicken) did not get her attention at all. She seems better now, but after reading the ingredients list, I realized – she probably knows better and that’s why she didn’t like all the cans.

Antibiotic and hormone free. Made in exquisite and sumptuous gravy the white breast chicken meat is amazingly tasty and will win the heart of even the finickiest feline.

Pros

  • Grain Free
  • Gluten free
  • Appetizing smell (makes cleaning a lot easier)

Cons

  • Price
  • Long chicken stripes make it harder for some cats to eat it

Conclusion: Good brand quality, lots of nutrition.  My cat (10pound female) really enjoyed it and is better hydrated, as I noticed she drinks far less water now.  That said it is quite expensive, and a little bit… Well soupy for that price tag.
