I really tried to resist the adorable packaging of BFF Cat Food (a.k.a Best Feline Friend). I was clearly their target market.
My inner dialogue upon seeing it on the pet store shelf went something like this…
“Aww, look it’s a girl and a cat, in CARTOON form, in super cute colors! OMG, look at the sweet names of the different formulas…’Tuna & Chicken 4Eva‘, sooo cute! I have to get…. NO!!! Don’t fall for it. Put it back.”
I’m always scared of being marketed to, because clearly I’m easy! But, as I was so intrigued by their unbelievably cute and unique labels, I did a little research to find out what BFF Cat Food is all about. Guess what? It’s not all presentation – there is some great food inside that impossibly cute can.
Grain free canned food is expensive, and the price of some brands seems to be increasing a little too rapidly. B.F.F is made by Weruva, and is intended to be a lower cost option for high quality, low carb, grain free cat food. All of the formulas are fish based, and made in a human food facility.
The first thing I noticed when opening up a can of “Tuna & Salmon Soulmates” was just that – tuna and salmon. BFF has a very natural texture, at least it does in the 4 flavors we’ve tried so far. Genuine pieces of chicken and fish – cut, shredded, etc. Not a puree or a paste. Pixie ADORES texture, so she was very happy to see this in her bowl. Weetzie is a little texture-phobic, and often greets a dish of meat that actually looks like meat with great apprehension bordering on fear, often not finishing the meal. But not this stuff. She’s cleaned her bowl every time, which is a pretty good indicator that BFF probably tastes GOOD.
So, we’ll definitely be adding BFF to the food rotation around here. Two paws up!
