Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Monday Meowsie News…


This is a PRODUCT REVIEW post…no, no…I was not compensated…just got some free food packages to give a try…

Who?? Me?? Picky??

…and thanks so much to for offering this special treat to me and some of my furriends…*ahem*…Ok, ok…and a furramily member…someone 2 kabillion times removed…meaning my Cuzin Leo

The Hottest Mancat

So doing product reviews is always, well, ya know…circumspect in my home…given I am currently an “only cat”…but thank Ceiling Cat… was still willing to give me a try… So first, my cultured palate was tested…(click to bigify and hover your mousie over a photo to see the caption)

…then I gave one package a try…not such a great aftertaste…just sayin’…

Then I asked Mom Linda to give it another try with my distant, far removed Cuzin Leo…

Ok, Ok…I know…this is not gonna go well with…and their promotion for the pawsome Natural Balance line of feline cat food…they really deserve to have this product tried by some other kittehs with palates less sensitive than mine and Cuzin Leo’s ….so far we had each given the yummy flavors a try…but only two paws up out of a possible 4 from each of us.

Let’s give this product one more try…with some kittehs who have broader taste interests than me and Cuzin Leo. I sent Mom Linda off to my palsl at The Kitty Platoon…the kittehs that live with my former veterinarian Dr Thompson… …whew…this went a bit better…and these guys, yup…all ‘guys’…are from 4 years to 14 years old…and they all had to be held back until Mom could get the food opened and onto plates…

The Grande Finale…’s The Natural Balance food is GREAT…for all those kittehs’ who luvluvluv the gravy accent…but for those who prefer the “hard core pate”….then probably not such a favorite…my buddy Smokey cleaned up everyone else’s left overs and ended in a sort of food coma!   So they gave the new Natural Balance flavors 12 out of  16 paws UP.   Two platoon members must have been on a recon patrol and so were not available to test this product. Thank you to those at for giving me and my extended furramily and best furriends the opportunity to do this pawsome product review…clearly…this product has great potential…but some may not prefer the “chunks” vs “the smoothness”  of a pate”…just saying…

Paw Pats, Savannah

  1. You made me laugh about Smokey ending in a food coma! It was kind of him to do all the clearing up!

  2. we are very picky too with wet food. we prefer kibbles.

  5. Hey Savvy, did you get a nasty e-mail from them like Abby did? Just wondering. I don’t like chunky food either. I like licking the gravy but that’s it. I do that with my Soulistic. I love the pumpkin soup but rarely eat the entree.

    Thanks for the review. I have some that like gravy and some that don’t. I would probably have to make the chunks smaller if they are big.

  7. The mom got us some of this food and we were two out of three on it. Wally and Zoey like it, but I yakked up every bit that I ate. The mom won’t give it to me again.


  8. We were half and half on this food, too! We thought the gravy was delicious but the chunks were kinda big.

  9. great review Savvy,even if not for you,xx Speedy

  11. Ahem. This is captain Fokker speaking on behalf of the platoon, we found the rations to be superior to MREs (mice ready to eat) and appreciated the fleshy chunks. We give this product a big hoooooaaaaaa. Thanks to savvy for inviting us to feast. Private smokey made us proud to be feline!

  12. Great review Savvy!

  13. We are pate kitties. Don’y like chunks or shreds. We’d probably enjoy the gravy. We’ve seen lots of reviews for this, and many of the kitties have gobbled it right up. Guess it is all about preferences. Have a furry good week. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  14. How cool you got all those freebies to try out. Yum.

  15. Hmmm… Sounds like Smokey might be applyin’ for a position in the disposal unit. He made quick work of what was left on those plates. Must have found it yummy.


  16. Thanks for a super funny review, Savannah. I think Leo gave it a different “balance” hehe

  17. We all eat special vet food (cuz of Sydney). Mummy Janey said that if we had that food we would pebble dash the walls. Don’t know what she means!

  18. Savvy I love that first picture! You look like you’re chewing the step! MOL


  19. Well done Savvy……we kitties are rather picky about our foods and what’s yum for some is not so yum for others. Some of us like chunky stuff, some wet and wild, some slurpy – it’s just the way it is. Good for you being honest with your review too….not everybody would do that!

    Well we’re both glad to know your opinion and Leo and the Kitty Platoon’s too. I love gravy, but the HuMom might have to swish the chunks with a fork for me. Hitch and the boys normally will eat anything I eat. Especially if it’s on my plate. Silly boycats. Leo is sure looking handsome and fit. We’ve been following him and NDD at his new castle. He seems like he’s relaxing and getting along just fine. You and your parents did good, Miss Savannah.

  21. What an interesting a detailed review. Whee never knew there were so many different kitty foods

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

  22. That looks like a very fair (and comprehensive) review, Savvy!

    The Chans

  23. We don’t like some flavor of the Platefulls and Daddy has to mash the chunks up before we’ll eat them. But some, like the Turkey, Chicken & Duck…we eat that without hesitation, chunks and all!

  24. We’re pate eaters, too, Savvy. Those chunks are too easy to push around.

  25. I do like the gravy and chunks so the chicken flavor (yellow packet) went over pretty well here! My human usually adds some salmon oil to the gravy as a supplement.

  26. What a gorgeous bunch of discerning diners 🙂 funny how some cats love the gravies and some don’ girls all love the pate..sadly for them they are on a fresh meat diet now….I think I have only ever had one cat who loved gravy and if I remember it didn’t love him!! you all look great Savvy..Leo looks brilliant and what a great group of kitties at the kitty platoon 🙂 hugs Fozziemum xx

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
