Tasty Tuesday: Weruva B.F.F.

Picture of a totally content cat.


This month, Chewy.com sent my family something a little different. We tried out a mixed variety pack of Weruva B.F.F. cat food. The variety pack comes with two cans each of four different flavors. There is Tuna Too Cool, Tuna and Salmon Soulmates, Tuna and Chicken 4EVA, and our favorite, Tuna and Pumpkin Valentine. The twelve pack is on sale right now for $11.29, with free shipping on any order over $49.

This is the Tuna and Pumpkin Valentine food, with visible chunks of tuna and pumpkin in it.


Every flavor is grain free and made with wild caught, dolphin safe tuna. While it can be fed as a complete diet in and of itself, I have been using it as a supplement food.

I think it's obvious that Martha really enjoys this food


Martha, the older of my two cats, is at least twelve years old now, and possibly older than that. She recently started getting that delicate feeling that old cats have, where they feel super breakable and lightweight. I've started supplementing her normal food with extra canned food and with a ground raw mixture as well, to try to get a little extra weight on her. She is at a very healthy weight now, but I like seniors to have a tiny bit extra. Not enough to hurt their joints, but enough that if they get sick they don't immediately turn into a sack of bones.

Theo decided he wanted in on the action.


Of course, Theodore Trex, the younger of my cats, doesn't think it is entirely fair that he doesn't get the extra food as well. He is at a great weight now, and I carefully measure his food daily to keep him there. Since he isn't a senior (nowhere near being a senior yet!), there is no reason for him to have even a little extra weight.

Theo kept using his patented head-butt to get into the can of food, sometimes backed up by a swift grab and pull with his paw to get the can a little closer.


I do often give him just a little bit of the canned food that I am feeding Martha, just enough to keep him out of her dish and give his food a little more flavor. I've actually found that mixing the goo left in the can after spooning out the chunks of food with some water and then giving it to Theo is a great way to get him to drink more water, which is always a good thing.

Overall, I think these pictures speak for themselves. Not only was the Weruva B.F.F. food a big hit with my cats (and with Koira, who was hovering just out of camera sight during this entire shoot), but Chewy.com continues to be a company with great selection and super speedy shipping. Actually, I think the shipping to my part of the world here in Oregon is actually faster than it used to be. We received this package just two days after ordering, when it used to take more like four days. Either way, two or four days is darn fast, and should be fast enough that you can order when you start scrapping the bottom of the bag and have your pet's food delivered on your doorstep before the bag runs empty.

Whippet Puppy

I went to whippet racing for the first time yesterday, and of course there were whippet puppies there. Some of the most adorable little things.
