Hey, humans!  It’s me…Ernie.  And I’m back again to talk about food.  Yep, that is the #1 thing on my mind.

Y’know, having a cat a dog can be expensive…with buying food and toys…and vet bills…though if you ask me, you can just forget about taking me to the evil vet.  You’re looking for ways to save money when it comes to buying pet food, right?  But while you wanna save money, you still wanna feed your cat or dog a healthy, high quality food, too.

A few weeks ago, we told you about Nature’s Recipe®…an affordable healthy food for your dog or cat that’s available at PetSmart®.  Oh, I know what you’re thinking.  Pet store brands are too expensive for your budget.  But that’s not true.  You can find high quality food like Nature’s Recipe at a price not much more than the supermarket brands.  Nature’s Recipe is a step up in pet food nutrition without a steep step up in cost.

For over 30 years, Nature’s Recipe has been providing pets with delicious nutrition…at a cost that won’t break the bank.  They’re focused on promoting health and happiness for your pets, crafting their recipes for real life by making every ingredient count™.

Nature’s Recipe’s cat foods are protein-packed with real chicken or fish as the #1 ingredient, and include all the essential vitamins and minerals us cats need.  We only eat grain free foods so we’re glad to see that Nature’s Recipe offers lots of grain free varieties, like chicken and tuna & shrimp.  The grain free foods are made with high-quality protein for easier digestion.

Nature’s Recipe dog foods include recipes tailored specifically to a dog’s life stage, from puppies to seniors, and recipes designed for supporting the needs of specific sizes and breeds.

But the best thing about Nature’s Recipe?  It tastes good!  Finding a food that all 3 of us will eat can be a challenge, but we all love Nature’s Recipe.  How much do we love it, you ask?

The proof is in the bowl…or rather…what’s not in the bowl.  Enough said.  Nature Recipe’s grain free wet food is now part of our food repertoire.

  1. Well that sure sounds like great and it does sound kuje utmight

  2. Tommy wanted us to try this because it was healthy and grain free–unfortunately we didn’t chomp it down like Tommy thought we would. And we love us some kibble. Since you guys like it, we may give it another go!

  3. Well that wasn;t a very good comment. We interrupted by many cats. The food does sound like it would be in our budget. That was such a good review Ernie.

  4. Grain free food is the Best!

    Rose ~ the adult kitten.

  5. I haven’t tried Nature’s Recipe with Mudpie yet but will definitely give it a try…I’m always looking for more things to add to my fussy girl’s repertoire!

  6. Timely post. I noticed I’m going to have to run to the pet store to restock the ‘special’ food I’ve been feeding Diego-san. I kinda was grumbling about it and how I’m going to have to get a second job and all… hopefully he didn’t hear me.

  7. Great review, as always! I’m glad to see that you all three enjoyed this food, Ernie, Wally, and Zoey. Seeing how you much you all like the moist food especially, I think I’ll try it out with my moist food picky gang. Purrs!

  8. Thanks for letting us know about this food. We’ve never tried it. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. Yummy AND healthy? Is that even legal MOL!

  10. That sounds pawsome, Mom needs to let us try some of that!

  11. Grain free is the way to go!
    Our Rufus the Red will eat ANYTHING and a LOT of it. Our vet says it’s an orange cat thing.
    What do you think, Wally?

  12. This sounds great! I bet my kitties would love it!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  13. Great product review. I can only have prescription kibble. But I might try the canned if it is pate. Oh, Mom L said great graphics and photos too!

  14. Thanks for the review……….we’ve not tried this one – maybe we should?!

    Hugs, Sammy

  15. Ernie I could listen to you talk about my favorite subject all day long
    Hugs madi your bfff

  16. Hey, that bowl is almost licked clean! Great review! We’ll have our dad check that out!

  17. The lady is at PetSmart just about every other week. She’s going to take a look at this food, specifically the wet food (we are beyond picky with dry). Thanks for the great review!

  18. Looks like you all love it. On sale, the little wet-food packages are about 20% more expensive than my grain-free canned, but that’s usually the case for those tiny packages.

  19. I need to try this for my kitties, I am sure they will enjoy it as much as all of you.

  20. The taste is what matters, isn’t it.

  21. We haven’t tried that brand yet but if all three of you like it, it must be good.

  22. Maybe we should look into that fur Minko…meowmy still is feeding him….sigh…

  23. Actually, high quality food means fewer trips to the vet in the long run! Better food equals healthier kitties, and that’s a fact!

  24. Hope you got re-fill in the bowl´s 😀


  25. The only thing that we love more than eating is saving money! This sounds like a win/win!

  26. Thanks for the Review! Got two kitties in our family who has to have grain free. – will check it out.

  27. That empty bowl speaks volumes!

  28. Doods, all THREE of you like it? That’s dangerous around here, you know, uh…because Allie. She’d eat our foods if we didn’t inhale it first before she got there….

  29. We have not tried it yet. You know how fussy Miss Samantha is, but we might pick up a couple of cans of wet food and give it a try. We like that it is high quality yet affordable.

  30. as usual; PAWSOME product review. You guys really know your stuff.
