Kitten Diaries: Rory’s Hunt For New Wet Food – Part 5

Hello, it is I, a Rory ball. Mum keeps calling me “a Dora ball” but I don’t know who Dora is, and I am clearly a Rory ball, doing regular Rory things. We both thought that my previous post would be the last one, didn’t we? Well, it’s a good thing I picked some excellent servants who rightfully enjoy spoiling me silly.

They came home with bags of new food and a new toy for me (which I am very happy with!! It’s a tunnel with a fluffy bed and a cute little boll dangling inside the tunnel and I looove it) and as part of their food haul they got me 2 new flavours of Tiki Cat Aloha Friends to try!

They saw how much I loved the regular Tuna & Pumpkin so figured why not get me some of the other recipes for me to try too? I have trained them well, if I may say so myself. I’m glad they have finally learned of my penchant for wet tuna. It took them long enough.

It has been given to me to know that they did not purchase more than one can of each of these two flavours because they weren’t sure how I’d take to them, since the recipes are not purely tuna. They got me loads of cans of the regular tuna & pumpkin as well as ahi tuna ones that I loved before though. Good servants.

So, here I am, trying out more flavours for your benefit, of course. I know that you wanted to hear from me again. It’s totally not for my benefit, nope, not at all. Try to curb your enthusiasm as you read through this okay? I know you must be very excited.

Kitten Diaries: Rory’s Hunt for New Wet Food – Part 4

Hello. It is I, the cutest cutie in this household. My peasants went shopping for more food for me and I have it on good faith that they cleared out the Tiki Cat aisle for me. While my mum denies this, she can confirm that during their food shop they also got me two more new flavours to try.

They saw how much I loved the Aloha Friends Tuna & Pumpkin recipe so got me some of the other Aloha Friends flavours. The new flavours will contain more new fish that I’ve never tried before so I am looking forward to it, and, lucky you, you get to hear from me once more after this post.

I know, I know, it’s the best news you’ve read all day. Try to contain yourself. There should be another post from me in a couple of days but, in case you can’t wait that long, you can re-read all of my reviews so far and enjoy my blep in the meantime. I give the most adorable bleps.

Blep. Thank you.

Kitten Diaries: Rory’s Hunt for New Wet Food – Part 3

Um… hi. I’m back. I ate more food and I have more thoughts. Did you miss me? Here’s another photo of my beautiful face and my cute little paws. It’s an older photo so I’m even smoller here. I know, I’m adorable! But more importantly, I have Tiki Cat food reviews for you!

I got two new cans over the past couple of days and… well… they weren’t bad. I can see that my peasants parents were trying. 10/10 for their valiant effort to get me flavours they thought I’d like. It’s possible that my taste buds have just changed as I’ve grown older, but I think my desire for chicken flavour has also been impacted by my recent bout of food poisoning à la Stella & Chewy’s.

Mum still hasn’t gotten round to returning that bag yet. She was previously too upset about me getting sick from it and worried that she’d get unjustly angry at the poor store employees if she went too soon after the incident. Then recently she’s either felt unwell or has been too busy with work.

Poor mum.

She does need to go to the pet food store though…I’m running out of Tiki Cat flavours! She needs to go buy me more food soon! …Maybe not either of these flavours though. I mean, I don’t hate them? But they’re not my favourites.

Kitten Diaries: Rory’s Hunt for New Wet Food – Part 2

Hello, it is I, your Rory-al Highness. Last time I got sick from that awful freeze-dried food. Mum and dad are now certain it was due to that food because they stopped giving it to me and I stopped throwing up the next day. Good thing my humans have some degree of awareness. I swear, the things I have to deal with when it comes to them sometimes, sigh.

Anyways, you are reading this post now because my loyal peasants have finally provided me with more food to taste, so I am here with my royal review of the new flavours they’ve given me. I have it in good faith that they have purchased a total of eight different flavours of Tiki Cat for me to try, and I shall be giving my royal verdict on all of them.

I am not in the slightest bit excited, this is clearly as it should be. I deserve to be treated like royalty. Look how regal I am.

My servants have declared I must go back to calling them “mum” and “dad”. Sigh, they are so needy sometimes. I have to follow them everywhere to make sure they’re not distraught by the lack of my presence. Especially when they open the pantry door where all my food is kept, I definitely need to go in there to supervise and make sure they don’t end up giving me the wrong food – or, worse, no food at all. The horror.

Without further ado, here is my royal decree. We (the royal “we”, of course) are reviewing two more Tiki Cat tuna recipes today.

…I’m not excited, you’re excited. Did I tell you that I wasn’t excited? I’m definitely not excited.

Kitten Diaries: Rory’s Hunt for New Wet Food – Part 1

This is the story about a Sleeping Cutie named Aurora and her quest to find a new wet food…

Our rescue kitten, Aurora (Rory for short), is a picky eater while also potentially having a slightly weak digestive system. She’s currently fed a mix of freeze-dried raw food and wet food. When we first got her, she was on kibble/wet and was having a little diarrhoea, so our vet advised we should replace her kibble with freeze dried food, and change the wet food brand we feed her. This post is mostly about her wet food, but if you want to hear more about the freeze dried part click here.

The wet food we’ve been feeding her up until this point was what the adoption lady says she was previously being fed. We were thinking of keeping her on it since she loves that flavour, is used to it, and the other brands the vet recommended were more expensive for the chicken flavours (or the chicken flavours were not for all life stages).

We figured we could just keep her on that until she was an adult before transitioning her to Tiki Cat or Weruva… but things changed a bit too quickly after that.

We originally thought she wouldn’t eat tuna because she rejected the freeze dried ahi tuna treats, but this week I cracked open some cans of tuna for my hubs and I to eat and she went craaazy trying to get me to give her some. I gave her some of the water brine, diluted with a lot more water, and she loved it.

(To be fair, she has liked it in the past as well, and even ate a small piece of tuna I tried to give her back when we first got her, which is why we tried getting her the ahi tuna treats. I guess just with her pickiness about the treats coupled with us not eating tuna for a while we forgot about it and assumed she only liked chicken.)

We originally thought she wouldn’t eat beef because she rejected it at the vet’s, but Pet Food Express were giving out samples of the Vital Essentials Beef Topper, so we figured why not… and she actually enjoyed that too! So maybe her taste buds have changed recently.

Then all of a sudden, the brand we were getting increased their prices by 15%, so that was the final straw. We are now on the hunt for new wet food that she’ll enjoy, that is more affordable and won’t cause her any tummy upsets. I’ll let Rory take the review from here since she’s the one eating it :D
