Any article on the best wet (canned) cat food will always have shortcomings because:
- nothing is as good as a mouse and;
- we don’t really know the customer’s true opinion on the subject, and;
- there is a plethora of manufacturers, recipes and strange ingredients making it all rather confusing…
Burdened by these barriers to doing something worthwhile and meaningful, the next best things to do, as far as I am concerned, is to scour the internet and gather together the views of the so called “experts” and “customer” reviews. However, I believe that “customer reviews” regarding cat food is a slight misdescription. It should be rephrased, “buyer’s reviews”.
As I did about 4 years ago, I am compiling a list of the best ranked wet cat foods from any reliable source to see if one or two manufacturers rise to the top like the proverbial cat’s cream. Of course, at a basic level the best cat food should be the most expensive. That will usually be the case. Also, the manufacturers of cat food should behave in an environmentally responsible way. Some of the reviews I have seen include this factor in their selections.
Here is a list of best canned (wet) cat foods from many websites….
….On my assessment (not a precise science), the best manufacturers on this survey – the ones that come up the most often – are:
Four years ago the best on my assessment were:
- Nature’s Logic
- Innova EVO
- Halo’s Spots.
I have to conclude that the best canned or wet cat food 2013 is manufactured by:
It may seem a slightly haphazard assessment and I have not been able to select a particular can (recipe) from each of these three manufacturers that stands head and shoulders above the rest. I think it has to be slightly haphazard as there are too many variables etc. But if these names come up routinely as the best, I think we should take notice.
My personal choice, amongst the three, would be Newman’s because I liked him as an actor. There appeared to be a bit of the rebel in him. That is frivolous. One last, important, point; as far as I am aware profits from Newman’s cat food goes to charities.
If anyone can add some hard science coupled with experience, fire away…..
