Weruva Chicken can food?

Can anyone tell me about Weruva? My boys love Tiki Cat shredded chicken but it is too expensive for me right now. I was wondering if Weruva would be similar and if there is anything bad about the food that I should know?

Good to know, thanks!

Now I just need to find somewhere online to order 1 or 2 cans for a taste test. My local stores don't sell it and I can't buy a case of it in case my boys decide they don't want it!

The fat % in the Weruva canned food is REALLy low. Is it too low? Does it really provide a balanced diet? I'm referring to the Funky Chunky Chicken...

-- Crude Protein (min) 10.0%
-- Crude Fat (min) 1.4%
-- Crude Fiber (max) .5%
-- Moisture (max) 85.0%
-- Ash (max) 1.2%
-- Calcium (max) .20 %
-- Magnesium (max) .008%
-- Phosphorus (max) .17%

I say yes... but I think AFFCO says differently..IMHO I use it as a supplement type food not a sole food...

dry matter analysis it has likely 6-8% fat and 40 ish protein

I rotate at least 6-7 different brands/flavors of canned, so they really don't eat any one can more than twice in a week so I think it would be ok if 2 out of 14 meals per week were a little lacking.

My guys love Weruva, even my picky one Sid, and there are lots of different flavors. I agree that this one is not balanced, but it shouldnt be a problem since they get variety. I sometimes mix a can of these with fancy feast to increase the meat and save money. It looks delicious! Some of the fish flavors are pretty weird, some have bones in.

That sounds like a good idea for those who have picky cats that don't want to eat anything but Fancy Feast - seems like this might balance out some of the "crap" factor in Fancy Feast!
