Rated 5 out of 5 by DeepSearch Whole food cats really love
This is a quality food made with whole fish cutlets that contains no fillers or questionable ingredients. My cats eagerly eat this straight out of the can, and sometimes I will feed it plain as a special treat, but I normally give them a couple spoonfuls of the sardines with another canned food and mix it together. The pinkish lobster consomme mixes well and can also be mushed in with the cutlets of fish.
My cats primarily eat poultry, but they do love their fish. I feed them sardines over tuna as sardines have very low levels of mercury contamination. And sardines provide cats with a lot of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nutrients. And adding sardines to a food gets my cats used to something new and encourage them to eat something they may not be too crazy about at first.
I have also bought the Tiki Cat Tahitian Grill which only contains sardines and found my cats apparently like the Bora Bora Luau more. They must have a sophisticated palate with a preference for lobster.

by Daphne8 A cat named Salty Dog
A cat named Salty Dog was destined to LOVE this food. The sardines look delicious , the consommé is filled with little lobster slivers. This is Salty's favorite flavor, he begs for this food and eats the whole can by himself. Love the Tiki line of food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Angie Great for physical cats
We recently lost a cat who was almost 25-years old. She was feral before coming to live with us. We've tried a lot of food over the years and Tiki-Cat Sardine Cutlets in Lobster Consomme was her favorite flavor of all cat food brands/flavors we've ever tried. She was a hunter who liked to dissect her catches. She even preferred playing with toys that she could rip the stuffing out of and this food appealed to her on a physical level because she had to tear into the chunks of sardines. She drew a lot of satisfaction from eating this meal.
I have 9 other cats; 2 of them will not touch Tiki-Cat (in any flavor) but they are finicky eaters so I'm not surprised. The other 7 cats recently tried this, with mixed results. 4 cats loved this flavor (and I strongly suspect that tearing into the food is why they love it). The other 3 lapped up the lobster consomme but left the sardines for the others to finish up.
So this is something I keep on hand for my 4 little wanna-be hunters (a treat for taking meds/etc) but not every cat likes it so I have to stock another flavor for the ones who won't eat the sardines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JenL Finally something she'll eat!
My cat loves Tiki Cat. Was trying to wean her off of chicken, but she's so hard to please. She likes this one, though. (Sometimes, I have to coax her to eat it, but once she starts, she'll usually finish.)

My little kitty zoo loves Tiki Cat Bora Bora! Apparently, nothing says "chow time" like whole sardines (eyeballs and bones includes) in gelatenous lobster sauce!

by TheBeastkeeper WARNING! Contains carageenan. Otherwise good product.
All of Tiki Cat's sardine formulas contain carageenan according to the label on the cans. Ingredients listed on the Tiki Pet site and the Chewy profile omit this. Carageenan is a common ingredient used to give products a more gelatin texture. It has been shown to cause inflammation in multiple studies so many "natural" pet food companies have removed it and advertise their products as "carageenan-free." 2 of my 3 cats enjoy it well enough and usually finish 90% of it.
