The Good: On the second try Elim actually eats it, Wonderful ingredients, Good nutrition
The Bad: Very expensive, No dental benefits, Most of the cats don't eat them
The Basics: Tiki Cat Chicken With Egg Velvet Mousse cat food took my cats multiple cats to try and actually enjoy . . . and only one of our three cats was willing to actually consume it.
The thing about trying new cat foods with three different cats is that it often acts as an excellent litmus test for the product. How each cat interacts with a new cat food helps to make it very clear the overall value and appeal of the product. So, when all three of my cats avoid a product, it's a pretty decent indication that the food is not all that great. Such it the case with the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg Cat Food. It was only with the second packet of this particular food that I was able to entice my least-discriminating cat, Elim, into consuming any of it. That the other two cats, Timber (who loves wet food) and Evie (who is, to be fair, the most discriminating of the bunch), completely avoid the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg Cat Food indicates it's not a particularly extraordinary flavor.
Tiki Cat Chicken With Egg Velvet Mousse comes in a plastic 2.8 oz. single serve pouch, which is not resealable. Supposedly, all three of my cats for their weights and ages should eat one and a half pouches per day! Even on sale, that would be far too expensive for us to feed them this mousse that much each day. As well, because it is a wet cat food, the Tiki Cat Chicken With Egg Velvet Mousse does not have any dental benefits that would encourage me to give the cats this each and every day to give them overall dental health.
Ease Of Preparation
The Chicken With Egg Velvet Mousse opens up easily enough in the 2.8 oz. plastic pouch. The small plastic pouch as a top that easily pulls off. Opening the pouch reveals the food inside. Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg looks like pureed salmon or tuna, though it is tan/pink and does not have fishy chunks in it. This cat food may be dispensed into a cat's food dish by squeezing the food out of the pouch or spooning it out.
Evie, Elim And Timber’s Reactions
The Tiki Cat Chicken With Egg Velvet Mousse smells like chicken. The chicken aroma is decent and actually smells inviting enough to a human nose to make it somewhat surprising that none of the cats came running for it.
Evie and Timber both avoided the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg Cat Food each time I tried to feed it to them. Elim could not be enticed the first time to try the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg Cat Food. However, the second time I brought out the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg Cat Food, Elim eventually went over and ate it. He ate most of the dish of the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg Cat Food. That he half-assed consumed it and did not finish it or seek it out suggested it was not the most exceptional cat food by his standards.
The Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg is very nutritious for cats and it has nothing noticeably bad in it. Considering that the primary ingredients are chicken, chicken broth, and dried egg the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg Cat Food has quality ingredients enough to justify the price. According to the guaranteed analysis on the pouch, there is a minimum of 12% crude protein and 2% crude fat and no more than 1% crude fiber, 2% ash, and 80% moisture. This is food appears to be wheat-free and it most definitely requires refrigeration after it is opened!
I cannot afford to give Elim and Timber this each and every day, though Elim gets it quite often - especially since our local discount store started stocking it pretty regularly. Hard cat food has clear dental benefits that the Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg does not have. When the cats chew (to split into bite-sized pieces) their hard cat food, it scrapes plaque and tartar off their teeth. There is no such physical operation going on with this cat food.
Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken With Egg is a mediocre wet cat food that only one of my cats kind of liked, which made it impossible to recommend.
