We interrupt our regularly scheduled catnap to bring you this impawtent bulletin:  new CANIDAE foodables have arrived!

It was an exciting day here when the man in the blue shorts delivered that big package, which the Warden said was all for me. Well, technically she said I had to share the noms with the other two furry inmates, but I was busy salivating so I wasn’t really paying any attention to that part. All I heard was that I would get to be a guinea pig and taste test some new grain free Pure formulas to give you my honest opinion of them. Catzowey! Life is good.

Now, being the foodie that I am, I may not be the best feline for the job of Cat Food Taste Tester but hey… you’ll never find anyone who throws themselves into their “work” with more enthusiasm than I do. Yep. Uh huh. I do love my noms. But even foodie cats like a little variety once in awhile, and since we only eat premium quality food at this five-star establishment, we ate the same two CANIDAE formulas all the time. Not any more!

With six new grain free flavors added to the CANIDAE line-up, mealtime just became the highlight of my day. Oh wait…it already was. The point is, now my furry inmates and I will get to mix it up a little. Even better, there are some interesting meats in these new foodables that we haven’t tried before – like duck, herring, rabbit, trout and lobster.

As the Warden expected, I liked them all. I did not have a favorite flavor because really, how can you choose one perfect nom over another? I ate every morsel of the stinky goodness and licked my bowl so clean you couldn’t even tell it once had food in it. MOL.

Here’s the scoop on the six new flavors: the Chicken formula is a smooth paté style; the other five – Salmon, Duck & Duck Liver, Turkey & Rabbit, Seafood (herring, shrimp and mackerel), Trout & Lobster – are chunky style. All are meowvalous.

The Warden likes these new grain free Pure formulas because, like every CANIDAE product, they’re made with high quality ingredients right here in the U.S.A. She also likes that they don’t have any corn, wheat, soy, antibiotics, hormones or fillers in them. That stuff means nothing to a cat – we’re all about the taste, you know – but I’m happy if she’s happy, because it means I get to eat these new foods all the time.

If you’re curious as a cat about what’s in these new foods, here’s the ingredient list for the Chicken formula: chicken, chicken broth, chicken liver, natural flavor, potassium chloride, guar gum, parsley, carrageenan, salt, choline chloride, cranberries, calcium carbonate, taurine, tricalcium phosphate, minerals (zinc proteinate, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, magnesium proteinate, sodium selenite, calcium iodate), vitamins (thiamine mononitrate, niacin supplement, vitamin E supplement, calcium pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, biotin, vitamin A supplement, vitamin B12 supplement, vitamin D2 supplement, folic acid).

There are also two new grain free dry formulas: Pure Ocean with Fresh Tuna  and Pure Stream with Fresh Trout. I haven’t gotten to taste test those yet, but I am certain they would get my paw print of approval. You can find more information on all the new cat fRocky food review 2ood over at the CANIDAE website.

BURRRRP! Oh my. I nearly ate myself into a stinky goodness coma. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to return to my regularly scheduled catnap.

Love & kitty licks,

    Very interesting! Thanks, Rocky, for letting us know about these grain frees from Canidae. Moosey is SO picky, so it’s always nice to know about new, healthy options.


  2. We’ll have to give this food a try!

    Thanks for the heads up on this, as our human always is looking for good grain-free canned for us to try. (We’re very picky, though!)
