Solid Gold Katz-N-Flocken Nutrient Boost
Cat Food and Meal Toppers
by Linda Hall and Rita Reimers, Cat Behavior Experts
We love it when a company reaches out and asks if we would be interested in testing their product. Between us, we have 29 cats currently so it’s a good test group! We love trying these new products, seeing what is in them and how our cats react, so we were excited that Solid Gold reached out to us to review their cat food!
Solid Gold – The Original Holistic Brand of Pet Food
The dry food says the company has been making “holistic pet food since 1974“. This is the “Nutrient Boost” version of Katz-N-Flocken Lamb, Brown Rice and Pearled Barley recipe, and is focused on “gut health for cats of all life stages“. The Meal Topper can be added to food to improve digestion and nutrient absorption. It is gluten free. Both the dry food and topper have “protein-packed plasma rich in amino acids and anti-bodies.” It “promotes better digestion and nutrient absorption.”
Hmmm. That all sounds good but will the cats eat it? With 29 cats, we know that everyone won’t like the same thing. We always have a few cats that don’t like what the majority likes, so we focus on how the majority respond. What do the cats think?
Taste-Test: Linda’s 11 Cats
When the box arrived, Linda opened the box and we smelled something GOOD! A few of us jumped into the box and we may have accidentally ripped one of the bags. Oops. Hey! We want in! It smells delicious!!! Fortunately she gave it to us right away. We think she appreciated us making it easier to open by ripping the bag for her. You’re welcome, Linda.
Normally our human only keeps two dry food bowls out as it is limited to us. Linda put Solid Gold in the kitchen bowl and we lined up. Yes. We literally lined up to get our turn to eat it. Of course, Paws ate his share and then laid in front of the bowl to block us and keep it all to himself. He is so selfish! We are lucky Linda made him move because we all really wanted a taste! The weird thing is … all 11 of us liked it. That NEVER happens! It’s delicious!
Taste-Test: Rita’s 18 Cats
We love it! Mom put the Solid Gold Nutrient Boost in a bowl and our regular food in a bowl. We ate all of the Solid Gold and left the other one alone. Hey, if you eat a burger every day and suddenly someone gives you a steak … would you go eat the burger? No way! It’s good, but this is better!
Scooter hasn’t been wanting to eat his wet food lately and our Mom, Rita was worried. He is 16 and he needs wet food and hydration. She tried to get sneaky and put some of the Meal Topper on the wet food. Normally when she tries to outsmart us, it doesn’t work but this time, Scooter ate his wet food with the meal topper on it! Mom was happy about it! All 18 of us liked it! I hope she doesn’t think this means she can outsmart us regularly. We Give It 2-Paws UP!
Rita and Linda’s Review
Our Solid Gold Cat Food Review is in! We love it! We are pretty picky about our dry food. Many dry foods have extra fillers and things that can cause weight gain and other health issues. This is a healthier choice with no artificial preservatives added and no potato, corn, wheat or soy. Improving nutrient absorption and gut health are important and they have added carrots, pumpkin and blueberries for antioxidants, fiber and phytonutrients to keep our kitties healthy.
We can’t argue with success. All 29 cats like it and it’s loaded with benefits. We can’t argue with the cats! In our homes, our cats all gave it the ultimate rating of “TWO PAWS UP“!!!
