Healthy Paws Co is super excited to be stocking Suburban Pets' new range of kitty meals in store. The recipes are healthy and fresh, and the convenient individual serving sizes fill a gap in the Australian raw meals market for cats. So, why should cat pawrents switch to Suburban Pets and what are they looking for when choosing a raw food for their furbaby, aside from the food being species appropriate, healthy and nutritious?
I chat to cat parents every day in my shop, and here are the top three concerns they have when choosing a new raw food:
The biggest consideration for most cat parents is whether their cat will like a new food. Often raw meals for cats are sold in large boxes, which means if their cat doesn’t like the food they’re left with a stack of food they can’t use or need to give away. The individual 200g serving sizes of Suburban Kitty meals allow cat parents to simply buy one meal to take home for their cat to try, saving money and reducing waste.
Many cat parents say their cat won’t eat their food if it doesn’t seem fresh. Often they will end up throwing out raw food because it’s been open in the fridge for too long. Suburban Kitty’s re-sealable 200g containers ensure the food will remain as fresh as possible for two to three days, keeping both human and feline happy.
Suburban Pets has put a lot of thought and research into developing the flavours for their cat range. These meals are definitely not boring, basic or uninspired. The addition of ingredients such as free-range egg, seaweed, dandelion and nutritional yeast don’t just boost the meal with species appropriate, easily digestible nutrients, but also make them interesting and tasty. The Beef & Chicken flavour even includes a chicken wing tip to encourage chewing and promote dental health.
If your cat already enjoys raw food and you’re looking to add some variety to their diet, or if you’re looking to transition your cat from commercial pet food to fresh, healthy food don’t hesitate to contact the Suburban Pets team to have a chat.
