Highly Recommended

Tiki Cat Filets wet cat food is made up of two recipes which both receive the Cat Food Advisor highest rating, 5 stars

This range of recipes is very limited in ingredients because each one is simply a filet of fish.  One is salmon, the other tuna.  This is a good food to consider for your cat as it is totally natural.

Pros
  • Whole salmon filet
  • 100% non-GMO
  • Very high protein
Cons
  • Only two formulas to choose from
  • More expensive than some cat foods
  • Not complete & balanced to AAFCO nutrient profiles

The table below shows each recipe in the range including our rating. The AAFCO nutrient profile is not included on the company website.

About

Tiki Cat was founded in 2005 by husband and wife, Christine and Robert Hackett. 

Christine had previously worked in research and development for PetCo and during that time decided that the pet food market needed a new kind of diet, food that is more species-appropriate, fewer grains and carbohydrates. 

Christine is also a big fan of Polynesian culture which explains the tiki-style branding.
