To help make the process of choosing a nutritious and delicious cat food a little bit easier, we have made a list of some of our favorite cat foods!

 Against the Grain

 Against the Grain has tons of amazing choices for cats. Dolphin-safe wild ocean-caught tuna fish, salmon, snapper, crab meat, tilapia, and shrimp are just some of the nutritious protein sources that make up this cat food. It is rich in amino acids, fatty acids, and vitamins and minerals like potassium, magnesium, and omegas. Against the Grain is a meat-dominant brand that never uses meals, dehydrated, or rendered ingredients in its recipes. And because they are meat-dominant, they always use at least 85% meat in all of their recipes, with the rest being made up of fresh fruits and vegetables. There are zero preservatives in any of their products, and they use the absolute minimal amount of processing in order to keep the foods natural. All of their canned cat food is packed by hand, too, so you can always be assured of its quality.


 This cat food is made with omega-rich avocados to promote a beautiful coat and healthy skin. It boasts tons of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that make it a full, nutritionally balanced meal. It is completely safe for cats as only the main substance of the avocado is used. They also have grain-free options for those kitties with grain sensitivities. This brand also has recipes for different life stages and for different concerns some cats might face, like weight management.


 Canidae is a brand that proudly uses only the most wholesome ingredients and never uses fillers, artificial ingredients, or preservatives. This brand also offers limited ingredient diets for those kitties with sensitive tummies. Sometimes having too many ingredients can just really throw a cat’s digestive system for a loop, but with this one, you won’t have to worry! They also have their own nutrition facility where they completely oversee the development of their pet food, as well as ensure its quality and integrity. No corn, no wheat, no soy, or animal byproduct meals are ever added to the recipes. Instead, they use real ingredients like sweet potatoes, peas, or chickpeas. Canidae nutrition focuses on the health of the entire body and the health of the mind of the animal. Every recipe is made up of probiotics, Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, and antioxidants to ensure maximum nutrition for your kitty. Plus, it has a great taste that cats absolutely love.


 Evanger’s is a cat food brand that actually packs their canned food by hand. When you open up a can of Evanger’s cat food, it doesn’t look like regular ground-up wet cat food. Instead, it looks like regular real, edible food! No longer does your cat’s food need to just look like a can of mystery meat! Evanger’s places a heavy emphasis on quality nutrition by adding fresh fruits and vegetables to their recipes. They even add turmeric to some of their recipes for its anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits. They also have several different recipes based on the needs of every cat. These recipes consist of sensitive tummy formulas, senior and joint health formulas, weight management, and bland diets for when your kitty is dealing with an upset tummy. Another great thing about Evanger’s is that they offer medley recipes that are made up of as many as three different protein sources like rabbit, beef, and pork.

 Snappy Tom

Snappy Tom was the first cat food brand to provide fish as a primary protein source for Australian cats instead of just chicken, beef, or lamb. With Snappy Tom, cats get all the benefits of a fish-rich diet like Omega oils which are known to be beneficial for heart, joint, and skin and coat health. Snappy Tom cat food’s ingredients are ethically sourced and collected in a dolphin-safe manner. Snappy Tom has its own facilities where it produces its cat food so that they can have complete quality control over the production.

 Northwest Naturals

 Northwest Naturals has six different recipes of freeze-dried cat food, including beef and trout, chicken, duck, rabbit, turkey, and whitefish. This food focuses on providing the essential nutrients that cats can’t live without. They don’t add fruits or vegetables. Instead, the recipes are made up of muscle meat, organ meat, and natural raw ground bone, all from the same protein source, depending on the recipe. A special component of Northwest Naturals is that they only chop their muscles and organs meat instead of grinding them up. Doing so helps to ensure the integrity of the high-quality ingredients in the recipes. Some reviewers have even said that Northwest Naturals helped save the life of their pets who refused to eat anything. Now, these pets can’t get enough of their delicious meals!
