#ChewyInfluencer Review: ZiwiPeak Daily-Cat Cuisine

Meows from Mudpie!!!

For months now we've been chronicling Mommy's determination to get me to eat more wet food. I've found one brand that I really like and on a good day I'll eat 3/4 of a 1.3 ounce tray. (Why she's not satisfied with that, I have no idea.) I've been willing to sample several other brands for about 5 bites before firmly giving it my paw of disapproval.

So last month when my Chewy.com Blogger Outreach newsletter arrived Mommy was excited to see a brand she had never even heard of before: ZiwiPeak from New Zealand!!! ZiwiPeak’s "Daily-Cat" moist cat food is a premium pet food made from 100% natural, fresh, raw meat, retaining natural moisture in the can. We chose beef because that's my favorite flavor in the wet food that I like, but it also comes in venison, lamb, rabbit & lamb, and venison & fish.

New Zealand is known worldwide for raising the highest-quality, pasture-raised, grass-fed beef. Grass-fed beef provides many added advantages such as higher omegas, less fat and more natural vitamins. ZiwiPeak beef is one of the cleanest, purest, beef formulations in the world.

According to the company's website, ZiwiPeak moist Beef is ideal for:
  • Cats that are underweight and need a higher level of energy source.
  • Growing kittens that require higher energy input.
  • Cats that have suffered from allergic reactions to other protein sources, grains or other meats.
  • Cats that suffer from restricted mobility or who have joint issues.
  • Cats that suffer from digestion issues.
  • Cats that suffer from renal issues such as: chronic renal failure, urinary crystals, kidney failure, pancreatitis, IBS & IBD.

We opened up a can and were very impressed with what we saw. Mommy even said the food smelled good to her!!! But it's *my* opinion that matters here, right???

Well, I loved it. As a matter of fact, I loved it so much that I made a little piggy of myself and proceeded to lose it all over the bathroom rug. Now Mommy should *totally* know better than to let a kitty gorge on a completely new food, especially one that is considered a raw equivalent (a minimum of 66% raw meat) and different than anything I've ever eaten, so the whole incident was entirely her fault. (Although to be fair, she allowed me to go overboard because she was so excited that I liked it!!!)

She learned her lesson quickly though and ever since then I've been eating smaller portions and have had no trouble with it at all. ZiwiPeak definitely gets four paws up from Mudpie!

That does sound like good food. We might have to try that since there are 5 or 6 cats here that are very very fussy. We will check it out.

Mmmmm, food worthy of being gorged - it must be good stuff indeed! I'm so glad you like it, Mudpie. I bet your mommy's thrilled that you've finally found a food you're more than obliging to eat. Great review, as always, Mudpie and Melissa! Purrs!

Lita really liked the lamb ZiwiPeak. If you like the beef kind, maybe your mom will let you try another kind to see if you like that, too. It's awesome that you like this food - wet noms are good for you :)

Truffle and Brulee liked the lamb ZiwiPeak. They didn't like the leftovers after they'd been put in the refrigerator though. Wish the can can in smaller sizes.

What a great review. M said she's going to go over to the site and check out that food. She'd like me to eat more healthy food and that sounds good.

Beef is one protein I won't touch. I don't like the smell or nothing. My peeps don't eat beef either so that may be it. I'm glad you're enjoying your new food. I bet if Mom bought you another case, you wouldn't look at it. HAH!
