Top Cat Food Reviews 2018 – Rankings from Best to Worst

Cats may be just animals, but when they become our pets, we have to treat them like they are apart of our family. This applies when it comes to cat food as well, because if you don’t feed your cat with healthy, natural food, your cat can become obese and get diabetes. 

In this review today, we have reviewed several cat food brands that we believe are healthy enough to feed our own cats. However, do note that some are cheaper which means that the ingredients used in the cat food isn’t high quality. So, if you don’t care much about price, then we recommend that you go for the premium options, while if you are trying to save money, go for the budget options.

What makes a cat food, healthy?

In order for a certain cat food brand to be healthy, there has to be a harmony between the ingredients and the meat used. First of all, if the ingredients are sourced from a natural environment, then that’s a bonus. This is because a lot of brands nowadays are starting to use artificial or GMO ingredients in their food. This allows companies to save money and produce products in bulk much easier.

Next, the meat should come from free-ranged animals. Some indoor farms raise their animals in good condition, but the best results come from animals that are raised in an open-cage environment. So, if you are looking for the best for your pet, look for natural ingredients and free-ranged animals for protein.

In our cat food review below, we have listed where the ingredients and meat are sourced from, so that you are informed on whether you are feeding your pet the right ingredients or not.

    How did we choose our rating?

    For our cat food reviews table above, you may have noticed that we have a rating (out of 10) for all the products. To determine this, we used a combination of pricing, quality, ingredients, and popularity. If the pricing was good and the ingredients were natural, then we would give the product a good rating. However, if the pricing is amazing (cheap) but the quality of the food alongside the ingredients weren’t natural, then the rating would suffer.

    The reason for this is because we would rather want our pets to enjoy a healthy meal than to feed it toxins (artificial ingredients & preservatives) that we wouldn’t feed our own children. Of course, this methodology might be different for each individual and budget, but for our case, we would rather want quality over saving money.
