I noticed this new brand at Petco.  It seems to be their own brand.  It is made in Thailand.
I bought a couple of chicken flavors home, and it was eaten enthusiastically by my young boys (I didn't try it on my older girls).  It seems similar to Weruva to me (which is not available locally, I have to order it).  They also have larger cans, but I tried the 3 oz. cans, which were 89 cents.

We tried the chicken and pumpkin today.
Ingredients:
Water Sufficient For Processing, Chicken, Pumpkin, Tapioca Starch, Sunflower Seed Oil, Spinach, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Choline Chloride, Taurine, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate, Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Nicotinic Acid (Vitamin B3), Ferrous Sulfate, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Potassium Iodide, Manganese Sulfate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Copper Sulfate, Riboflavin Supplement (Vitamin B2), Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement.

Hmmm...that doesn't look to bad...wonder what the catch is?

And looking over some of the flavors, it does appear to be similar to Weruva.

I thought it sounded similar to Weruva also. Wonder if they make it ?

It's also very similar to Tiki Cat. They're all three made at human foods facility in Thailand.

it is EXTREMELY low in fat for a supposedly complete and balanced food.. I like pumpkin but the third ingredient followed by a starch makes me thing HIGH in carbs

Tried the Tuna 5.5 oz can with the kittens today. Very enthusiastically eaten. Almost a whole can between the 2 of them.

Edit: Lilith did ok with it, but Castiel got horrible diarrhea. To be fair, I think he has an allergy or sensitivity to fish.

I fed them both some of the plain chicken kind, and they both liked it, and seemed to do ok. But when I fed a can of the chicken and pumpkin, both got loose stool.

So...I think a few flavors of this might be OK, but unsure overall.

I saw the small cans of this cat food at Petco and they were packaged the same way the small cans of Tiki Cat are packaged, stacked 3 cans high in a long carton.

Like wicked fate's experience, the Soulistic (chicken flavors) seems to cause loose stool for my 3 boys.

It looks different to me than the Tiki chicken --different color to the chicken and gravy--seems to have more "gravy".

I agree, but also don't like spinach in there, thought spinach was bad for cats, OK for dogs only.  Of course I don't like the plant oil instead of a salmon oil either.  Plant oils are inflammatory oils for cats.

calico good info on plant oils being inflammatory for cats. First I had heard about this,  thx for another thing for pet parents to be aware of. Do you know if it applies to dogs also?

loose stool is what we have been experiencing with soulistic as of late. this was not the case a couple of months ago. i am thinking it's the desert weather here in az - this is their first summer. we started feeding them soulistic after our amazon delivery of weruva had not come to our hotel in san diego. i read that the same packagers af weruva does soulistic, so we bought it from unleashed. no loose stool there.

Nostalgia cleaned her plate!!! Grin Grin Grin Sorry, I had to get that out! I've been struggling with her pickiness for months now. She doesn't even clean up her Fancy Feast, which has been her favorite so far. I picked up some Soulistic today (the chicken in pumpkin soup pouch) and she took right to it. Knock on wood! Hopefully there's no side effects and she stays interested in it. To be fair, the 3oz pouch is certainly smaller than, say, a 5.5oz can of Weruva, but I'm just so happy to see her eating!

Whoops, spoke too soon! Nostalgia likes the chicken in pumpkin, but today we tried the chicken & tuna in gravy and it didn't go well. She's never thrown up before, but she did today - she ate about half the 3oz can and didn't seem too enthused to begin with, but I didn't think much of it because she's never very enthused about her food.
