Tiki Cat Napili Luau Wild Salmon & Chicken in Chicken Consomme Canned Cat Food
Excellent food for a cat with dietary restrictions. Or any cat.
I have an 18 year old cat with severe inflammatory bowel disease. Feeding him a home-prepared raw diet would be best, but it's not always practicable for me, and I frequently have to rely on commercial foods. There are many 'grain-free' foods on the market, but only a handful which are carbohydrate-free. In the past three years, Tiki Cat literally has been a lifesaver for Mojo.
1) Several 'grain-free' canned foods he had been eating began adding wheat gluten, potato, soy protein, and other ingredients to their recipes--all of which aggravated Mojo's IBD, and sent me searching for a food which would work. Tiki Cat's flavors without rice have none of the problematic ingredients. It is consistently manufactured to a high standard. Mojo eats the Napili Luau (wild salmon & chicken) and Puka Puka Luau (chicken), which are also free of vegetable gums. Meat, oil (sunflower seed and fish), and the necessary nutritional supplements--that's it. Perfect.
2) Geriatric cats have a harder time metabolizing protein and need a larger percentage of it in their diet than younger cats to maintain muscle mass. Tiki Cat's use of high quality animal protein has reversed Mojo's age-related wasting. He is sleek, glossy, lean, but well-muscled.
3) Cats with inflammatory bowel disease are also extremely prone to dental resorptive lesions. In three years eating Tiki Cat, Mojo's usual gum inflammation has been considerably reduced, and two lesions have disappeared without treatment. This is probably due to the lack of ingredients aggravating his immune system, plus the mechanical cleaning action. Tiki Cat is made up of big chunks and shreds of meat; the cat must chew it, and this is great for removing tartar from the teeth--much more effective than dry kibble, and only a little less effective than eating raw chunked meat.
I would love to see another flavor or two in the line which does not contain fish or rice, with a slightly higher fat content. Otherwise, I couldn't be happier with this product.

Great for Sensitive systems
I have a cat that cannot eat Tuna or any grains, and he loves this food. I can't give him the other varieties of Tiki cat, but this one is wonderful. He loves it and will consistently eat it and has not lost his appetite for it even though he is also a typically finicky cat. He usually only likes what he can't stomach, but this is one exception. Thank you for a great product that my cat can eat!

This product is impressive
If I were starving, I would consider eating this product. The Chicken is shredded all white meat and the tuna looks like Starkist. I can't get it in the bowl fast enough. Definitely one of Tigger's favorite.
I highly recommend this product (for the cat). lol

Our Fussy Cats Love It
We are convinced the best food for our cats is canned. We have tried many brands and flavors and have had inconsistent results. The Tiki Wild Salmon & Chicken is loved by all.

This is the best quality of all the many premium canned foods I have tried. My cats agree! All of them eat it happily, which is rare. It is very reasonably priced for a food with no fillers.

Great for picky eaters!
I have an older (at least 17 now), picky eater in the family. I suppose that at his age, he can be picky. This is one of the few foods that he'll willingly eat - this, and the Tiki Cat salmon (which is apparently is only a meal 'supplement', and not meant to be fed exclusively). Of course, this and the salmon entree are on the higher end of Tiki Cat's menu spectrum - also can't knock my old man for having expensive tastes. ;)
The appearance, quality, and smell of the ingredients are the best that I've seen of any canned diet. All ingredients are easily identified, and appear to be human-grade (as I believe is advertised). The salmon and chicken meats are shredded, and the product isn't "soupy" as competitors' offerings have been. Cats like meat. This product has lots of good meat.
If you have a picky, or older (or both) cat and can afford to splurge, I highly recommend this product. Others may imitate, but none that I've seen so far can match the quality.

My cat loves this food! She's diabetic and is on insulin, and she is overweight. She is losing weight and also getting nourishment from this great food!
