 Roll Eyes Shocked this is opinion ONLY ... Cats are OBLIGATE carnivores , they have no actual need for for Carbs ( that is strait for the main vet book for cats and dogs ) ... in a wild environment they would get 3-5 % carbs from digested matter and some grazing ... I note no affco seal which with that protein level only would get a adult only seal and IMHO only a senior cat with major issues should eat that low of protein in a dry food... Roll Eyes

I talked to them briefly at Della Natura.

Della Natura Commodities provides ingredients.
Ingredients are all grown in South America. Pet food is made in South America. Soriano Uruguay.
On Whole Dog Journal 2008 approved: Della Natura Commodities ~ Bayside, NY • Wenaewe made in Uruguay by Erro S.A.

98% certified organic - the 2% is vitamins, which they say cannot be certified organic. No Chinese origin ingredients.

They have 2 canned cat foods which have not yet been put on website (or have by now Smiley )... Beef , Beef & Liver.

Update:  Well, this is not very well received.

The kibble pieces are very,very tiny. Kittens might do well, I don't know...

About 1/2 the size of the BG chicken kibble.

With some fines from the Halo LuvALittle freeze dried chicken dusted over it they will eat it, if there's nothing else.

Otherwise, they'll go drink water instead of eating it.

The company has not yet responded to two requests for the nutritional profile on it either. One request via telephone; one request via email.

Expensive lesson.
   
Here's a comparative picture of BG Chicken Kibble on top, Wenaewe Kibble on bottom:

Offy...here is what I found on their website: 

Guaranteed Average Analysis
Crude protein (Min)
 26.00%
Crude fat (Min) 12.00%
Crude fiber (Max) 3.00%
Moisture (Max) 10.00%

**this is for the Dry Cat Kibbles...was there more you were requesting from them??

I'm sorry for dragging up this ancient thread, but does any one know where I can get this food?  My supplier is out!   Angry

merrihart, were you ever able to find a place that carries this cat food?  I was trying to find it out on internet land and for some reason I cant seem to find any cat food by this brand.  I was checking it out as another possible new thing to try on Ms Picky but I cant find anywhere on-line where its sold.

Sandi I think they stopped making it  Cry  Even the Wenaewe web site doesn't list it anymore and I got no response to my email inquiries.  A shame, it was an excellent dry food, Bella did fine on it for a year.  Then I brought home some canned food and she refused to touch it!  Bucky had just come home and I was trying everything to make sure he could eat.
