I've been using Weruva wet cat food for about 4 months.  Its made in Thailand to EU human standards (the company sent me their EU certifications).  They actually are a company that makes food for people and they use the left overs for cats.  Mostly fish combinations, they just came out with 2 chicken flavors.  It has no grain protein added.  Most flavors have no grain at  all - one has a little bit of whole rice.

The food looks a little scary when you first open it because its real food (chunks of fish or chicken, little calamari rings).  With skin and everything, and soft bones. Because this is made with left overs that aren't pureed, a flavor does vary in consistency a bit from can to can.  Example - sometimes the calamari rings are few and small, other times - they are a pretty good size.  Ocassionally you'll find a monster chunk of fish in the can but its easily mashed with a fork.

My cats love it and I've not seen any bad reactions to it.  One of my cats does not like the chicken entrees- I think this is because the pieces are too big for her to handle and don't mash up as easily as the fish. 

Its very hard to find - only one pet store in Chicago carries it.  They have a web site - so you can check out whether its available in your area.  And the cost?  I need a second mortgagte on my house!

Our local specialty pet food store just started carrying Weruva.  I didn't know anything about them, but picked up a can one day for my cats.  It was the chicken soup one, I think.  I was surprised when I opened it and it looked just like chicken soup.  Only one of my four liked it, but I was pleasantly surprised when he ate it all - even the veggies and noodles.  I may have to get him some more.  He seems to like the foods that are more like real food.

I just ordered some of these online, what I don;t like is that they have menadione among ingredients, we'll see how kitties like them. I wouldn't feed it regularly, but if they like it might be OK to give it occasionally for variety. I really don't like it that they now have much fewer choices after I eliminated everything made by Menu and everything containing gluten. Combined with the fact that they are very picky, not that much left to feed.

Two older kitties liked Asian Fusion, and Nine Liver has been a big hit with Sophie. It looks really good, obviously real food.

Haven't tried yet another chicken and one duck flavor, others (Marbella Paella etc.) no one was interested. My cats are quite picky.

I used a few cans also.  Mine didn't really care it that much & with the Menadione & with all the fish I wasn't sure it was a good idea to give them that.  Just my opinion.

They now have flavours without fish. Nine Liver and Paw Licking chicken are definitely a hit here, Pecking Ducken wasn't.

Hong Kong. I got them online from Petsage (www.petsage.com or http://www5.mailordercentral.com/petsage/departments.asp?dept=55 ), they have good selection, including Orijen and Ziwipeak which are a bit hard to find.

My cats love this food. Is it considered high quality cat food?  Thanks.

I just tried Weruva on my Bengals today, they devoured it!!!

Much better then Merrick they were using. The plate was licked clean.

I hope this brand meets standards and does not have any recalls!!!

I ordered a case of weruva for my 3 cats and my sisters 3 cats.  I ordered the nine livers for my sisters 3 cats and she said they absolutely loved it.  She even said her one diabetic cat ate it faster than shes ever seen her eat before.  I didnt have as much luck.  I tried the outback grill with travelly and barrumndi and my cats seemed to like it but one just walked away.  Im curious to try the nine livers cause ive only heard good things about it and my cats like mostly seafood it would be nice to give them some chicken in their diet.

ps. what flavors have all of you guys tried?Huh I would like to know which flavors are the best ones to try because i dont have weruva in my area and i have to order it by the case online. Any reports on the steak frites or the green eggs and chicken one??

I have one cat that loves chicken and she eats Nine Livers and Green Eggs and chicken. She refused Peking Ducken. The other two are seafood lovers and the only flavor they will eat is Asian Fusion.

My three like this brand, too, they have tried various flavors over the past year. There are two issues I have with it, however. First, the inconsistency from batch to batch. Second, with the soupy food anyhow, there doesn't seem to be enough of it compared to other brands. Cats seem to be hungry again sooner after eating! Will continue to use Weruva as occasional change of pace.

There definitely seems to be less chicken in the broth compared to other brands with similar type of food (Applaws, Almo Nature, where there is little liquid and lots of meat per can). I also feed it occasionally, mainly because Sophie loves liver and this is only acceptable kind of "chicken and liver" food I could find.
