The Good: Wonderful ingredients, Good nutrition, Two of my cats adore it and one likes it
The Bad: Very expensive, No dental benefits
The Basics: Timber has a new favorite wet cat food in the form of Tiki Cat Chicken & Wild Salmon Velvet Mousse!
Finding a new, great, wet cat food for Timber is an increasingly rare thing. Timber is my oldest cat right now: he is turning 8 next month. Timber is a bit set in his ways. When it comes to wet cat food, the only ones he has ever loved are pates. That is, until recently. Recently, I began feeding Timber (and my other two cats) Tiki Cat Chicken & Wild Salmon Velvet Mousse. But the surprise for me was how very much Timber fell in love with this cat food!
Tiki Cat Chicken & Wild Salmon 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 at least two 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 & Wild Salmon 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. Elim, especially, needs to be attentive to his dental health, so despite his love of wet food and this food in particular, he needs harder foods than this for a daily balance.
Ease Of Preparation
The Chicken & Wild Salmon 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 & Wild Salmon looks like pureed tuna or chicken, as it is tan, but 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 & Wild Salmon Velvet Mousse smells lightly fishy and very meaty. The aroma from this mousse is fairly strong, which might be why Timber, especially, came running each time I opened a packet of the cat food.
Timber went running for the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken & Wild Salmon Cat Food from the very first time I opened a pouch and served it up for the cats. Elim went right for it when the smell wafted to the nearby room he was in. Both Timber and Elim have repeatedly gone back for the Tiki Cat Chicken & Wild Salmon Velvet Mousse each time the food has been put out for them. Evie has been a little more neutral to it, but she has sampled the Tiki Cat Chicken & Wild Salmon Velvet Mousse. Given the voracious way Timber and Elim go for the Chicken & Wild Salmon Velvet Mousse with vigor, it is hard not to call it a winner!
The Velvet Mousse Chicken & Wild Salmon is very nutritious for cats and it has nothing noticeably bad in it. Considering that the primary ingredients are chicken broth, chicken and salmon, the Tiki Cat Velvet Mousse Chicken & Wild Salmon 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 & Wild Salmon 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 & Wild Salmon grabbed two of my three cats instantly, including the most finicky one, making this a great wet catfood!
