Ingredients Analysis

The first ingredient is salmon. Salmon is an oily marine and freshwater fish not only high in protein but also omega 3 fatty acids, essential oils needed by every cat to sustain life.

The second and third ingredients are salmon & tuna meal, respectively. Because it is considered a meat concentrate, fish meal contains almost 300% more protein than fresh fish itself. Fish meal is typically obtained from the “clean, dried, ground tissue of undecomposed whole fish and fish cuttings” of commercial fish operations.1

The fourth ingredient is peas. Peas are a quality source of carbohydrates. And like all legumes, they’re rich in natural fiber.

However, peas contain about 25% protein, a factor that must be considered when judging the meat content of this cat food.

The fifth ingredient is pea protein. What remains of a pea after removing the starchy part of the vegetable. Even though it contains over 80% protein, this ingredient would be expected to have a lower biological value than meat and less costly plant-based products like this can notably boost the total protein reported on the label — a factor that must be considered when judging the meat content of this cat food.

The sixth ingredient is tuna. Tuna is an oily marine fish not only high in protein but also omega-3 fatty acids, essential oils needed by every cat to sustain life. This item is typically sourced from clean, undecomposed whole fish and fish cuttings of commercial fish operations. 2

The seventh ingredient is chicken fat. Chicken fat is obtained from rendering chicken, a process similar to making soup in which the fat itself is skimmed from the surface of the liquid.

The eighth ingredient is flaxseed. One of the best non-fish sources of omega-3 fatty acids — essential to a cat’s health.

From here the list goes on to include a number of other items. But to be realistic, ingredients located this far down the list (other than nutritional supplements) are not likely to affect the overall rating of the product.

Nutrient Analysis

Based on its ingredients alone, Cat Person Salmon & Tuna looks like an above-average dry product and is high in fat too.

The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 44.4%, a fat level of 22.2% and an estimated carbohydrate level of 25.3%.

As a group, the brand features an above-average protein content of 44.4% and a mean fat level of 22.2%. Together these figures suggest a carbohydrate content of 25.3% for the overall product line, alongside a fat-to-protein ratio of 50%.

This means this Cat Person dry product line contains higher than average protein and fat and near average carbohydrate, when compared to typical dry cat food

Final Word

Cat Person dry cat food is suitable for most cats. It is high in protein and has many other important nutrients to benefit a cat’s health and give it the energy it needs throughout the day.
