I’ve previously written about a new brand of cat food called KatKin. Run by brother and sister Brett and Nikki they create vet-formulated cat food with high quality ingredients and 95% meat content.
I absolutely love the story behind KatKin and was very impressed by what I read. However, there is really only one way to find out how good the food is so Dirk tested a trial box.
KatKin provided very helpful instructions about how to gradually introduce the food to your cat. Some cats tuck in straightaway and have no problems switching to a new type of food, but others can be a bit more fussy. In general, cats do not like change but on an individual level they cope differently. Confident cats seem to have little issues at all. Still, switching to a new type of food can be tricky if your cat has only ever had one type of food. Rest assured that KatKin have thought of that and also added ‘sprinkles’ – small chicken flavored treats – to its trial box to help encourage the fussiest cats transition to its food.
What do you mean I’m not allowed on the worktop?
Dirk was very curious about his new food and loved the smell of it, but when it came to eating it he was a bit more fussy than I had expected. KatKin’s instructions came in handy! I started by giving him just a small amount of the new food so Dirk could get used to the texture of his new food. KatKin’s food required a bit more chewing from him than other wet food he’s used to (I always joke that Dirk’s style of eating is ‘chewing is for wimps’).
Within a week Dirk was happily eating his KatKin food and couldn’t wait for mealtimes, sometimes quite literally…
A great thing about the trial box is that your cat can try all the flavors and when you order your next box you can leave out the ones they did not like. Dirk’s favorites were gobble, cluck, quack and oink. This is not too surprising, as KatKin recently shared that their top three favorites are cluck, gobble and oink. He was not too big a fan of beef and lamb. I am really happy that you can order boxes of food which only contain flavors your cat likes. This means you can still feed your cat a variety of flavors but without the waste of throwing away food that hasn’t been eaten. And your cat will only need one pouch a day as KatKin already makes sure of the portion sizes.
Clearly, Dirk & I are both huge fans of KatKin food and unsurprisingly the delivery box proved a great hit as well 😉
This is me with my lovely cat Dirk! Let me tell you something about both of us.
I work as a cat sitter and cat behaviourist for CitiKiti in London and am basically surrounded by cats 24/7!
Dirk is roughly 11 years old (I say roughly because he is a rescue cat). Dirk is truly the most loving and lovable cat I know. He is very interested in people and loves being cuddled a lot. Dirk spends most of his time relaxing with me or anywhere around the house really. He is also quite playful and loves the games that involve interaction the most.
