About Taste of the Wild Cat Food

The Diet Nature Intended

The Diet Nature Intended

They might not be cheetahs or lions, but today's domestic cats share the same ancestral cravings. To satisfy these instinctual appetites, Taste of the Wild wet and dry formulas are made with real, roasted meat plus fruits, vegetables and legumes that are chosen for their specific health benefits.

Energy That Lasts

Taste of the Wild is made with premium fish and meats like smoked salmon, trout, ocean fish, roasted venison and chicken. Every formula is grain-free and provides lasting energy with complex carbs from sweet potatoes and legumes. These highly digestible proteins and fiber-rich carbohydrates will keep your pet feeling full and energized throughout the day.

Immune System Support

Immune System Support

Since 70% of your pet's immune system is found in the gut, it makes sense to choose a food that's good for the digestive tract. Taste of the Wild includes prebiotics and species-specific probiotics with bacteria that's naturally found in a cat's GI tract. The proprietary Viables probiotics are added after the kibble is cooked so your cat gets guaranteed live, active cultures that support healthy digestion.

Maximizing Nutrient Absorption

To help your pet's body absorb all of the beneficial minerals in her food, Taste of the Wild recipes have chelated minerals. That means they can easily attach to proteins for absorption during digestion. So your kitty will enjoy the full value of every carefully selected mineral that these foods have to offer.

Maximizing Nutrient Absorption
Perfectly Balanced Omegas

Perfectly Balanced Omegas

Taste of the Wild gives your little wildcat just the right dose of omega fatty acids in every bite. Marine-sourced omega-3 comes from smoked salmon or ocean fish, or a combination of these ingredients. Omega-6 from plant sources balance out the omega-3s, and they work together to help maintain your pet's skin and coat health and to support overall wellness.

Ingredients for Better Health

The powerful superfood trio of blueberries, raspberries and tomatoes can be found in every delicious recipe, along with their immune-boosting properties.

TOMATOES and TOMATO POMACE: Help support overall health by providing vitamin C, soluble fiber and rich in concentrated lycopene, a premier antioxidant.

BLUEBERRIES: Antioxidant-rich superfood that's full of flavor and loaded with vitamins C and E, healthy carbs, dietary fiber and manganese.

RASPBERRIES: Delicious berries packed with potassium, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium, and they also provide fiber and antioxidants.

  • picky bengal and toyger love it

    By on

    I have a 3 year old SBT bengal female and a two year old toyger male. They have good appetites and a high prey drive, but due to being spoiled, they are very picky eaters (jerks!). Taste of the Wild dry food is my go to and they LOVE it! I switch between the two varieties. Great product for the price! Taste of the Wild wet food was a no go. Foolishly bought a case and spent the next month trying to mix it in with the Tiki Cat, Weverva and Whole Earth Farms they normally eat and love to get rid of it. (always test your monsters before buying in bulk!)

  • I don't want to like it but

    By on

    My cats have been eating this for years and love it. It isn't my first choice for them but with 3 picky eaters I'll deal with it. I recently started mixing 2 other dry foods with this so they get variety. For the love of pete make this bag resealable though!

  • My Cat Likes This Food

    By on

    While it may not be her favorite dry food, Ms. Cinnabon will eat this when her favorites are not available. I try and rotate her foods so she gets a variety. This may not be her favorite, but it is a high quality food.

  • Great Product and Great Company

    By on

    Both of my cats love the taste of Taste of the Wild, and that isn't always easy to say with cats. I love it because it is one of the highest protein dry foods available, is nutritionally balanced and it contains no grain. It compares well against any of the so-called major brands. I am also a big fan of Chewy because they have great selection, prices, and free shipping for a reasonable order. Plus, it keeps me from having to visit either of the two major pet store chains with whom I will not do business.

  • Fantastic selection and prices!

    By on

    I decided to switch my cats' food so did a ton of research and was pleased to find Taste of the Wild at Chewy. It was rated very well and the cost was very competitive. My kibble order arrived within 2 days of ordering and I am happy to say my cat loves her new food! I am a Chewy customer for life! Keep up the good work!

  • My 12 cats like it!

    By on

    It is not a food they are overly excited about, but they do nibble on it constantly. My two senior cats and the kittens really like it. Kibble is small in size, easy to chew. The transition was no problem, digestion and stool were great. No vomiting. I will keep this flavor as a daily food source.

  • Good food!

    By on

    I chose this brand for what's not in it. I buy both flavors to offer my Purrgirls variety. Not having filler (junk) ingredients, my Purrgirls are more satisfied with less.

  • Much healthier for your cat

    By on

    we have 6 cats it was hard to find a best cat food that fit all their diets. But LOVE taste of the wild it is very healthy and they love it too. it helps maintain a healthy weight directions on the bag. But this brand for Cats is really hard to find in stores. LOVE that chewy has a big selection. 30 a month for HEALTHY cat food is awesome deal. its much easier to find a good brand on online because you can read all ingredients and compare others for the healthiest brand. we buy all our cat food and dog food from chewy!

  • I love Chewy

    By on

    I just ordered Taste of the Wild with absolutely no chicken or turkey in it whatsoever. I am hoping this will eliminate the runny eyes. I know my Bengal Missy has food allergies and I thought it was chicken. I switched to Duck but even it has chicken meal. I was pleased to see this is absolutely chicken and turkey free and I can afford it thanks to Chewy. It's hard to find a good quality cat food that has no poultry in it, I hope my 3 will like it and that they will do well on it. Update later.
