We have tried several of the personalized dog food plans that offer human grade food in the past, but up until now were not aware of such a service for cats, so Mocha kitty has been left out. Smalls changed this by working in a partnership with PhD’s in animal nutrition who help formulate recipes as healthy and nutritious as possible. All recipes go through many revisions until they are perfected for cats. All food is made in a regulated human food facility in Chicago, by a small team of chefs.
Smalls is meant to be customized for your cat so the “Getting Started” link you find on the homepage takes you through a series of questions to help them get to know your cat to make the best possible recommendation to compile a sample box for your cat to try. What kind of food does your cat eat today? What is your ideal ratio for cost vs. quality when purchasing cat food? How old is your cat, are they spayed or neutered? The answers to these questions gets you to a set of choices. Choices could be a mixture of wet and dry food, maybe weighing a little heavier on one or the other depending on the answer to your questions.
The Smalls package arrives nicely boxed and on dry ice to keep it nice and cool.
Opening the box we can see a nicely laid out instruction sheet, some food toppers, and a container to keep open packages in, in the refrigerator.
Here you can see the variety of freeze dried food and also the refrigerator packages feature chicken, turkey and beef. The wet food smells not bad for what you would think of cat food. After all it is made from chicken and other natural ingredients so it should smell similar to something we would eat ourselves. The wet food is the Pâté type which means it is ground really fine and has a smooth texture. I had told the representative that reached out to me about Smalls that Mocha was very picky. We have had her since she was a kitten and she has always been very picky about her litterbox, food, treats, cat litter, pretty much everything. Mocha’s diet mostly consists of dry food and then we have what we call wet food Fridays where she gets wet food. A full diet of wet food just seems to giver her diarrhea so we reserve it as a treat. For wet food she has always liked the morsels or chunkier food, not the Pâté, maybe it is the texture that she does not like. So for mocha the wet food was out. She would nibble on the freeze dried food, but not really a fan.
Luckily my sister has a couple of cats as well so I asked her if she was willing to try out the Smalls food on her cats and they really liked it, to each their own I guess. This is why it is great that Smalls sends you a sampler box so you can see what your cat will like and not like. Check out Smalls today and get started on your sampler box and see if you can tall a difference in your cat and be sure to show them some love on facebook, twitter and Instagram.
