Ernie-headshotHi everybuddy.  Ernie here.  Recently, we were contacted by the nice peoples from Weruva asking if we’d like to try their food and let everybuddy know what we thought about it.  Well, they didn’t have to twist our paws to get us to say yes.  Us Island Cats are big fans of Weruva cat food and have been eating it for quite awhile now. Why are we fans of Weruva?  Lemme tell you…

Weruva’s motto is “Keep it simple…keep it safe.”  Weruva is a high quality canned food made with human grade ingredients in a human food facility. The base proteins of chicken, beef and fish include only top quality muscle meat.  The ingredients maintain a natural look and recognizable texture so you can see what you’re getting.  Most of their foods are grain, GMO, MSG and carrageenan free. It’s people food for pets!

What make Weruva different from other pet foods?

  • It’s carnivorous focused.  Us cats are “obligate carnivores” which means we must eat meat to survive. All of the Weruva foods are formulated with the carnivore in mind. The percentage of carbohydrates in Weruva foods ranges from 1% to 3%.weruva-logo
  • It’s protein fit for human consumption.  All Weruva cat food formulas use fit for human consumption ingredients like boneless, skinless, white chicken breast and fish loins flaked off the bone.  Don’t tell anybuddy but the dad-guy has actually eaten some Weruva food!
  • Human food processing standards are used.  Weruva cat food is made in a state of the art human food facility in accordance with international human food processing standards.
  • There’s no mystery mush.  Weruva doesn’t blend ingredients into a meatloaf style pate. Instead, the meat or fish is flaked off of the bone and hand placed into cans along with other food ingredients that may be in the formula.  Weruva’s philosophy is “what you see is what you get.”


Weruva has several lines of cat food to choose from…Truluxe, Weruva, Cats in the Kitchen and BFF…with Truluxe being the highest of the already high quality food.  Some of our favorite flavors are Weruva Paw Lickin’ Chicken, and Cats in the Kitchen Fowl Ball and Funk in the Trunk.  That’s another cool thing about Weruva…the foods have fun names.

Okay, I know…know…enough of all that stuff.  You wanna know the most important thing…how does Weruva taste, right??  I taste-tested a flavor I hadn’t tried before….Cats in the Kitchen Lamb Burgini.


I didn’t think I would like this, but y’know what?


I did!

Us Island Cats give Weruva BIG paws up!  And we bet if you tried Weruva, you will, too.  For more information about Weruva, visit their website by clicking HERE.


A bath is in order after a good meal like that.

BUT WAIT!  I’m not done yet!  The nice Weruva peoples said we could do a GIVEAWAY!  That’s right! TWO lucky readers will win a case of Weruva 3 oz. canned cat food…their choice of flavor! Unfortunately, the giveaway is only available for those in the U.S. or Canada, so if you live outside those areas, you can designate a furiend or shelter to get the prize if you win.  Just use the Rafflecopter form below to enter.  The giveaway runs through June 17, 2015.  Good luck!

Disclosure:  We received some Weruva food as payment for doing this review and giveaway, but that did not influence our opinion at all.

  22. What a great review! We entered!

  23. the dad-guy ate fish loins.. yeah, like we aren’t going to be spreading that rumor all over facebook.. lol

    awesome giveaway!!

  24. I think we have tried that food and it is really good. It would be fun to win some of it. Looks like you all sure enjoyed it. Have a great day.

  25. Ernie, it must be good if you never tried it before and then tucked right into it! I’m suspicious of any new food….someone might be trying to shut me up so I examine it well and then wait to see if Kali keels over and if she doesn’t I try it.


  26. Paws up for Weruva! We have a post and giveaway about them coming up, so we aren’t going to enter, but we love their food!

  27. We love the dog food by Weruva! They make excellent food and at BlogPaws, they made excellent coffee drinks! ♥

  28. Hi Ernie! We have some very picky eaters here, but your review makes us think maybe we should give Weruva a try! 🙂

  29. That food looks yummy. Leo would love some of that.

  30. Pipo hasn’t decided what his fave is, but Minko while he gets rabbit right now, seems to like chicken.

  31. We have three cats. Our senior Maine Coon, Koneko,will pretty much each anything. Moko is our sweet gray tabby girl and she’s a bit more picky – she has never turned down salmon. Our youngest, Arata, has decided he’s a fan of chicken, but not necessarily in cat food (I was cooking chicken breasts for my deaf hound girl, Ran, when she was sick and Arata went nuts for it – Ran passed in April). However, Arata also loves salmon. So, I’d have to say that’s everyone’s favorite at our house.

  32. We’re big fans of Weruva too – Amber in particular, loves their meals and honestly, they look good enough for us humans to eat.

  34. Ooh, have you tried the pumpkin tuna one? All three here are fans.

  35. When Jewel was here, we were always trying different foods to see what she would eat. Weruva was one that she really liked.

    Carmine and Milita love chicken!

  36. Wowsa, we haven’t tried this brand yet but we have to say it looks delish! We really like anything with chick hen in it but would love to try other choices. They all look yummy. What a great giveaway!
    Angel Normie, Mika, Sasha & Grady Lewis

  37. I think the chicken would be the most likely winner at our house. Thanks so much for this wonderful giveaway!!

  38. We usually don’t like anything that isn’t pate, but Mom would really like to find something that Fiona and Giulietta are inclined to eat so she would like us to try this. Great review. Hope we win. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  39. Rosie would love to win this package! She likes all flavors

  40. This is a great review, Ernie! Sounds like it’s a yummy food!

  41. Our favorite flavor of food is fish but Jan wants us to have a more balanced diet. We’ve had Weruva before and it was good!

  42. We thinkk they have great food (though we won’t eat it – ha!). Our mom thinks that’s really too bad….

  43. Mmmmmm,looks good and we are glad you all like it too.
    Always nice when you taste test and love the food 🙂
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  44. We’ve tried a few flavors of the Weruva and we’ve always liked them. We’d love the opportunity to win these cans so we can try some of the other flavors.

  45. Ooo Callie has not tried Weruva yet, but she would love to! I am still learning what she likes, but fish seems to be pretty popular.

  46. My cats love anything fishy. Cod, shrimp, tuna, etc….

  47. Oh yum that looks good!

  48. We are up to trying anything with Samantha!
    Have a great day,
    Mom & Samantha

  49. I think my cats would love the Lamb Burger flavor.

  51. Chicken and turkey are probably our favorite flavors. Reviewing cat food sounds like a great job, Ernie.

  53. What is WAFFLES’ favorite flavor of food?
    ; ) Well despite what you might think (chicken) his true favorite is whatever Katie is eating.

  54. Hmmmm, I wonder why I always miss out on the Weruva giveaways? They NEVER contact this ghetto kitteh and I love their gut rot. I haven’t tried the TruLux and I see it has some stuff we’re not fond of but I do love the pouches with the pumpkin soup.

  55. […] still time to enter our Weruva cat food giveaway. Click HERE for the deets and to […]

  56. We already love their Cats In The Kitchen pouch food. But we tend to like fish flavor, especially tuna!

  57. Our foster kittens LOVED the Weruva we got at BlogPaws. Now that that is all gone they’ve become picky eaters.

  58. We have tried some of the Weruva foods before and enjoyed them too. One of their flavors, Steak Frites is also low in phosphorous so it is a good choice for Tanner!

  59. This looks so healthy! Id love for my cats to try it.

  60. This food looks really nommy and it sounds like it is really healthy too. Mom likes us to eat healthy cat food. We just want it to taste good. Love, Cali, Andy, Tater and Shelly (C.A.T.S.)
