Bozita Feline Tetrapack Kitten
Advantages: Kitten loves it, 88% meat, reasonably priced
Disadvantages: Packaging, not easily available
When picking kitten food initially I thought I was pretty certain what he would have - James Wellbeloved and Royal Canin wet food along with the same brands of dry. This was because of the quality of them - James Wellbeloved is free from grains and cereals etc and only uses meat in its food rather than meat derivatives and Royal Canin is recommended by our vet and they also have a breed specific food for him which I thought would tailor to his needs well.
However, upon reading online I felt like I was a tiny fish in a big sea of choices! I do buy James Wellbeloved for him but the wet food is only available in two flavours for kittens - lamb and turkey which I'm worried he would get fed up with. I haven't yet tried the Royal Canin yet because it seems to have lower ratings so I was on the look out for something of a high quality I could feed him, with a high meat content and no fillers - cereal, grain etc.
After spending hours reading up on the subject I felt a bit more lost! This was a good brand but you need to do this...this shouldn't be done....this should....no it shouldn't...! There are so many conflicting views that I couldn't really decide what was best. After all of this research I felt I had a pretty fair knowledge of what was good and not good so I decided to bite the bullet, go to zooplus and pick a food to supplement his James Wellbeloved.
In the end I ordered Bozita for kittens. The reason I chose this was because it contains meat that is of a standard that would be sold for human consumption, it contains 88% chicken which he loves and also, it came in 190g boxes so 6 packs would be around the same as 12 sachets.
Bozita is a Swedish brand which initially I was sceptical about. Its not a brand you find in Pets at Home and I was worried about whether it would be ok for him etc. When I told my family they agreed which wasn't very reassuring!
The food is in a tetrapack carton and actually looks like a box of kitten milk. This is an odd design in my opinion but maybe it keeps the food fresher as it is able to be packed in tighter? To open the pack I simply cut it like I would milk and then squeezed some out into his bowl.
It didn't look very appetising, it all sort of fell out in one big lump where it was all squashed together but it soon separated up a little bit. The smell was very strong! It smelt of meat and jelly but multiplied by about 10! However, since hes been eating this its actually not seemed so smelly so maybe I have become more accustomed to it!
Initially I thought that there was no way he would touch it because the smell was quite different to his others but he absolutely loves it! He doesn't eat a great deal of wet food - usually less than 100g a day but he ate a whole carton of this in 24 hours which is 190g so he must be a big fan! When feeding him he's already got his head in the bowl before I'm done and he often wails once he has ran out for more.
I'm pleased he likes this so much because it is a high quality food that does provide him with the vitamins and nutrients that he needs. I rarely include ingredients lists in my reviews but I think its nice to be able to compare what is in this to other kitten food:
Chicken (min. 88%), pork, treated yeast (SPC 1%), calcium carbonate, yeast (ß-1.3/1.6-glucan, 0.01%).
There are also nutritional additives:
Vitamin A (2.280 IU/kg), vitamin D3 (230 IU/kg), vitamin E (14 mg/kg), copper [copper-II-sulphate-pentahydrate] (2.3 mg/kg), manganese [manganese-II & III oxide] (2 mg/kg), zinc [zinc sulphate, monohydrate] (16 mg/kg), iodine [calcium iodate, monohydrate] (0.1 mg/kg).
I think this food is brilliant and would definitely recommend it because it's a very good standard which gives me peace of mind and the kitten absolutely loves it. Currently, 6 190g boxes are selling for £4.49 which isnt too bad as it is providing almost 12 sachets worth. I have only seen this on zooplus so will be returning to order more from them.
There are other varieties available other than kitten such as:
Outdoor and Active
Indoor and Steralised
Diet and Stomach - Sensitive
Hair and Skin - Sensitive
I am really happy with this brand and wish it was more readily available to buy in the UK. It provides a good quality food for a reasonable price and my kitten loves it too - big purrs all round!
Summary: Will definitely be buying again
