When I pick up my skunk food and coon food at Safeway in the pet food aisle, I see the Freshpet refrigerator down there at the end and wonder if it’s something my cats will eat. Gazing through the glass door, I see that the selection looks pretty good. I could slice the meat tubes up and serve it on crackers and dinner guests would compliment my culinary prowess.
I got a chance to review Freshpet and put it to a taste test. Well, I didn’t actually taste it myself; Banzai and Reno did. But given the choice between eating Freshpet and baby food, I’d pick Freshpet in a second. It looks pretty darned good.
The form factor can be a significant issue with picky cats, and Freshpet offers three: Slice & Serve Rolls, Tubs, and Meals. The tubs serve up deceptively generous portions. One tub provided a total of about six meals. Well, Reno would have eaten the whole thing and run to the vomitorium to make room for more, but we try to stop him before he explodes and we have to mop cat guts from the kitchen cabinets.
Freshpet’s Nutritional Philosophy
From the start, the Freshpet team selects the best ingredients delivered daily to the Freshpet kitchens. From fresh meats and grains to wholesome fruits and veggies, the ingredients couldn’t be more nutritious. Or delicious.
Their meats are never pre-cooked, and the ingredients are completely natural. Freshpet never uses fillers, or rendered meals.
Every pound of the food contains at least 9 oz. of poultry, meat or fish; 2 oz. of liver; 1 oz of egg, plus fruits, vegetables, vitamins and minerals. Pretty good, eh?
And we’re giving away some Freshpet meals so you can see your yourself. You know the drill: provide your contact info so we can ship your winnings to you, and tweet for extra entries. Contact info is never used for any other purpose, and is not shared or sold.
THE FINE PRINT: Freshpet provided the product and the coupons for the giveaway. We respect our readers and never recommend anything with which our cats are not absolutely in love.
