The Top 5 Cat Foods: Cat Food Reviews 2012

By Petslady @petslady

Like the dog food top 5, rated by Pet Food Reviews, the top 5 cat foods are chosen for their approximation to a cat's natural diet in the wild - mainly the kinds of foods cats hunt.  No, the the top 5 foods don't contain rats and rabbits; but they do consist almost totally of protein, the same high grade protein that is sold for human consumption - no fillers or by-products. Unlike the top 5 rated dog products, only one of the 5 top cat food brands received a 5-star rating...

Does that mean that pet food companies are trying harder to match demands for top quality dog foot then they are for cat food?  Anyway... here they are!


1.  Orijen Cat Food

Orijen cat food 'Yes, Orijen received a 5-star rating from Pet Products Review, and it's well-deserved, considering it is nourishing and 'biologically appropriate.'  Orijen, which comes in dry and wet formulas and a variety of protein choices for cats and kittens, has a 75 percent protein content to a 25 percent fruit and vegetable content.  It is grain free. Customers say that their pickiest of cats love this brand; the only negative comments are about the higher price of it. Orijen does not make a canned diet for cats.


2. Taste of the Wild Cat Food

Taste of the Wild cat food
Taste of the Wild cat food Taste of the Wild is another cat food brand that cats seem to like, which is always a plus for cat owners. Owners like it too, although some would prefer to have chicken as the main ingredient rather than chicken meal.  But the reviewers support the brand, noting that it is less expensive than Orijen, although they don't name Orijen, but suggest that Taste of the Wild is great nutrition for a good price.  Grain free, Taste is made in dry and canned versions.


3.  Halo Cat Food

Halo cat food
Halo cat food Reviewers and cat owners like the fact that Halo looks and smells like human food, especially, of course, the canned Halo.  But cats may not be attracted to the canned food for some reason, and some seem to prefer the dry version. Halo does use all human grade products, adds vitamins and minerals to the mix, and makes both grain and grain-free diets for your cat. Like some other pet foods, Halo was started by a cat owner who wanted to solve his own cat's (Spot) health problems.


4. Natural Balance Cat Food

Natural Balance cat food
Natural Balance cat food Natural Balance is a solid choice for owners who are looking for a reasonably priced, readily available cat food  sold dry and in cans.  The drawback, as reviewers see it, is that the brand includes more carbohydrates than the other top brands, although it does contain plenty of natural, fresh proteins too.  Cats seem to like it and owners often comment on their cats' fuller fur and additional muscle tone after lifting five pound dumbbells.


5.  Newman's Own Cat Food

Newman's Own cat food
Newman's Own cat food A notch or two high from human-grade pet food is organic pet food, and that's what Newman's Own includes.  It's all organic, from beef to rice to even a special process for rendering the chicken fat.  Cats and owners seem to love it, and the reviewers like it too, except they seem to be uncomfortable with the levels of grains and veggies in the food.  Some cat owners report that their cats 'eat around' the grains and veggies, but cats, after all, are carnivores.... Taurine, an essential amino acid for cats, is an added benefit of Newman's Own.
