Chewy.com review: Tikicat Aloha Friends food


This month's review is Tikicat Aloha Friends food, tuna with pumpkin flavor.

The good: Grain and gluten free, sustainably sourced ingredients

The not-so-good: Pumpkin can be an ingredient some cats don't like in food. We also know some people don't like to feed fish foods.


I didn't realize when I chose this food that it contained pumpkin. We've fed other foods with pumpkin as an ingredient with limited success. However, we like the regular Tiki Cat food, so we figured it was worth a try.

The food looks mostly like tuna. The pumpkin appeared as small bits.

Who would eat this? We figured that Ringo and Sadie would, but I was in for a surprise! Benny ate this food! I did not expect that but was happy. He is a more picky eater than others, and it's good to have another food to add into our rotation.

Sadie loved this food.

Ringo was the only one who wouldn't try this food. Overall, it was a success.

My only comment is that it was difficult to get all of the food out of the pouch, and I felt I was wasting some food. Does anyone have a tip? We usually use cans or feed from bags of raw, so I'm not as familiar with using pouches.

Disclaimer: We were sent some food in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are our own.

Nice to know about this option. When I've fed pouch food I've spooned out as much as I can and then rinsed it with a bit of water and added the extra 'tuna water' on top of the food. :-)

I think Amy has a good suggestion! Although we don't eat cat food with fish as a main ingredient (and preferably as NO ingredient), we all do like pumpkin - my human adds it to Binga's food, and sometimes to mine or Boodie's if we're a little "off."

So glad Benny and Sadie liked this food especially picky Benny. Tiki is fit for human consumption, too, so if I ever run out of human food, I'm eating theirs. LOL Can you cut the pouch wide open to get all the food?

Way to go Benny! :)

To get stuff out of pouches, I open it up wide like I'm going to fill it with water, and then dump it out, and then like a tube of toothpaste I roll 'up' from the bottom (but since it is upside down because I'm pouring things out I'm technically rolling down)

Lucy and Ringo in the basket together. So sweet.
